Gigabyte Launches New 165 Hz Curved VA Tactical Gaming Monitor

Gigabyte has launched the AORUS CV27Q, its new Tactical Gaming Monitor. It’s a new, 27-inch curved monitor packing a 165 Hz refresh rate and a 1500R curvature.

The AORUS CV27Q is a VA panel with a 1ms MPRT response time (see the Pixel Response FAQ), running at 2560×1440. While MPRT is known, there’s no word yet on what the GtG ms response rate is, but time will soon tell when the monitor is released later this year.

The monitor also comes packed with AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR tech and comes NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible, so you’ll be safe no matter which graphics card you have.

The monitor comes equipped with Black Equalizer 2,9 technology which works to divide the screen into 1,296 subareas and then subsequently equalizes each area individually, giving gamers the chance to see clearer in dark areas without suffering from overexposure in the brighter areas.

We earlier wrote about Gigabyte’s Tactical Gaming branding nomenclature with their earlier KD25F launch, their branding for the feature package in AORUS gaming monitors.
