Gigabyte Launches Aorus CV27Q 165Hz QHD 1500R Tactical Gaming Monitor
The Aorus CV27Q features an 8-bit VA panel (16.77 million colors), bringing with it a blazing fast 165Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time (MPRT). The Aorus CV27Q has a QHD (2560x1440) resolution, and Gigabyte says that the display covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.
On top of that, there’s AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology incorporated into the display. Not to be outdone, the Aorus CV27Q is also NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible, so you won't be left out of adaptive refresh goodness whether you have a Radeon or GeForce graphics card in your gaming rig.
In addition, Gigabyte throws in some of its own "secret sauce" including Black Equalizer 2.0, which divides the screen into 1296 areas for managing black levels for gamers looking to get an edge in their eSports gaming sessions. Aim Stabilizer helps to reduce blur in FPS games that can be caused by recoil effects, while GameAssist provides easy-to-use OSD function that can be called up in-game.
Yet another feature that is sure to be popular is the Aorus Dashboard, which when used in conjunction with an Aorus motherboard, can provide an overlay with CPU clock speed, fan speeds, CPU/GPU usage, temperatures and other key vitals while you game. Other niceties include blue light reduction, Active Noise Cancelling 2.0, and flicker-free technology.
The Aorus CV27Q features two HDMI 2.0 ports, a single DisplayPort 1.2, and two USB 3.0 ports (with Quick Charge support for your mobile devices). And as you might expect from a gaming monitor, there are LED elements on the back of the device which are configurable with multiple programmable zones and 9 lighting effects.
The Aorus CV27Q Tactical Gaming Monitor is priced at $459.99 and will be available later this year from Gigabyte’s retail partners.
