Ah yes. more useless buzzwords that mean absolutely nothing on a monitor and dont even sound cool but it has to because "Gamers"

I dont think my eyes can roll hard enough to describe the amount of cringe here.

Somebody needs to email Gigabyte marketing department and tell them what the real meaning of 'tactical' is.

If the monitor was 300hz or more then the use of the word would be fully justifiable.

Ooh! Finally. An upgrade for my Aorus AD27QD (27" 1440p).

I'll be picking up the 32" 4K model.

There aren't many 32" 4K IPS high refresh rate displays out there.

Another product that exists solely for e-peen, courtesy of Gigabyte Aorus, filled with cringeworthy marketing.

Is the 32" OLED or IPS?

"For the FI32U, you could expect shorter 0.5 ms response time, thanks to the advanced Super Speed IPS technology!"

Never been a big fan of IPS, I'm the guy who always loses the panel lottery where my panels have so much light bleed people think it's haunted.

It's IPS.

IPS isn't perfect but it's so much better than ugly color/gamma-shifting VA panels.

I've used IPS displays since 2015 and I couldn't go back to VA, TN etc.

OLED would be amazing, though. True blacks + gaming monitor (OLED TVs are too big for computer use on a computer desk) = amazing.

About damn time. Though didn't Asus announce their 32"+ 4k144 HDMI 2.1 monitors in August or September? That 32" looks pretty much like exactly the monitor I've been waiting for though.

Still, pricing and availability or I'm calling it vaporware.

I want that 32". but I may settle for this one if its a lot more expensive.

AORUS FI27Q-X 27" 240Hz 1440P HBR3, G-SYNC Compatible, SS IPS Gaming Monitor, Exclusive Built-in ANC, 2560 x 1440, 0.3ms Response Time, HDR, 93% DCI-P3, 1x Display Port 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 - Newegg.com
My Aorus AD27QD was one of the first (if not the first) 27" 1440p IPS 144 Hz monitors (February 2019) and cost me £535 (the RRP) on launch day.

I'm hoping the Aorus FI32U (32" 4K IPS 144 Hz) isn't much more expensive. It's the same brightness (350 cd/m2) etc. as the AD27QD. £600 would be fine. £550 would be great (AD27QD's £535 + a little inflation).

What this "tactical gaming monitors" ? Is it reload itself every time I'm shooting an enemy?

VA has gone a long way and even exceed IPS, see Samsung G9. Personally I choose smearing over glowing.

VA doesn't just smear - the colors and gamma change when you adjust your angle even a little.

is "tactical" code for 'sore neck' from having a gaming monitor thats too big :laugh: :slap:

a monitor past 27" is pushing it, 32" is the absolute ceiling IMO, unless of course youre gaming from your couch, in which case youre using a display, not a monitor

That's viewing angle, it suffers from it but not like TN and thats the reason why most VA are curved. As for colour and gamma, mainstream VA panel now on par with IPS panel at ~90% DCI-P3 wide gamut and average dE ~0,8, after calibration of course.

As long as you're very head-on.

Well they do have pricing... it's $2999 for that one. And it's version 1 Asus, so for sure you're paying 3G to experience some interesting issues they missed in their QA.

Apart from this, fast VA has some pretty nasty inversion artifacts -- my Samsung g7 27" 240hz was awful above 120hz - bunch of people complain about it online too. Between the color shift and inversion problems I've had a better experience with my TNs than that VA panel.

(1) Samsung Odyssey G7 32", who have Pixel Walk Or Pixel Inversion? : Monitors (reddit.com)

Plus that 43" panel is probably the one Asus PG43UQ and Acer use now, and it's notorious for black smearing.

dont't look great. 32 bit inch is too big for sedktop gaming. 144 Hz is pretty good, but LG can get 160 Hz. There is no mini LED.

Didn't we all sit dead center in front of monitor, cause I don't like tilted monitor, skew my chair or sitting on sideways.

Inverse ghosting are major hindrance for VA now, its just nature of vertical alignment. This panel cannot utilize overdrive properly along with VRR unlike TN or IPS panel, and worse its has slowest response time of both. My suggestion is turn off overdrive and set response time at medium to minimize janky transition.

I have a 27" 1440p IPS monitor and a 32" 4K VA monitor.

They're both angled toward me on the desk.

The VA panel color and gamma constantly shifts when I move my head around. Even when I'm still, as I'm not directly in front of it, there is a different distance between the bottom left and the top right and the gamma changes a lot.

I'll stick with IPS for now. None of that rubbish.

My 27 inch 1440p is perfect for me. I don't want anything bigger because I would have to look around when gaming. Though I guess it defeats the purpose of getting a 4K monitor at 27 inch. I have a 5ft X 3ft table that gives me room to spread out but a 43 inch or 48 inch monitor would be too big.

I had 2x 27" 1440p until recently but I wanted 4K for the extra real estate you get in web browsers, music players etc.

As you said, 27" 4K isn't worth it - you would need to shift to 32".

Even at 32", 4K is probably best at 125% scaling.

If this Aorus FI32U is a fair price, I'll have 1x 32" 4K144 and 1x 32" 4K60, both at 125% scaling.

I've got the AORUS CV27F and I really like it. Problem is, it's only 1080p and 27 inch...and I have my scaling in Windows set to 175% so program windows are always huge and the buttons are always obscured. That why I'd like a 32" monitor, but they're so expensive...
