Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer Gigabyte has unleashed yet another new member in their tactical gaming series monitors – the Gigabyte Aorus CV27Q. This monitor still boasts the same specs as the Gigabyte Aorus CV27F, dubbed ‘World’s First Tactical Gaming Monitor.’ But while the CV27F is designed for full HD 1080p gaming, the new CV27Q can support smooth QHD 1440p gaming.

The two monitors are based on an 8-bit VA panel with ELED lighting, but the new Gigabyte CV27Q has a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and hence the Q at the end of the model. As you may also note, the Full HD model has an F at the end of the model number. If the earlier CV27F suited all your gaming needs except for the resolution, the new Aorus CV27Q is built for 1440p gaming.

The display boasts 400 cd/m2 brightness, DisplayHDR400 and 3000 TYP contrast ratio. It covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. The Aorus CV27Q is based on a 27-inch 1500R curved panel and offers a wide 178° vertical and 178° horizontal viewing angles.

One awesome thing about Gigabyte CV27Q is the versatility when it comes to adaptive sync compatibility. While it is marketed as an AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR gaming monitor, it is also compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC. So, whether you are on the GeForce side or Radeon, the Aorus CV27Q has got you covered.

In addition to the adaptive sync, the 165Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time (MPRT) ensure you remain on the competitive edge. The two are essentials when playing games that require, accuracy, fast action and responsiveness.

When it comes to connectivity, there’s nothing new in the CV27Q – it comes with the same options as the earlier CV27F. It features a single DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and two USB 3.0 ports with support for Quick Charge. An earphone jack is also included.

There are also several game-specific features. These include AIM Stabilizer, Game Assist, Black Equalizer, Gaming Dashboard, OSD SideKick, and ANC 2.0, just to mention a few.

As far as the design is concerned, the Aorus CV27Q is VESA Wall Mounting compatible and is highly adjustable. It can tilt -5∘~+21∘ while the swivel stretches from -20∘ to +20∘. The unite also has a 130mm height adjustment. Besides the sleek design and the slim bezels, Gigabyte also included RGB lighting to lighten up your gaming station.

Regarding availability, Gigabyte says the new Aorus CV27Q will be available in the US later on this year starting from $460. The generous Gigabyte 3-year limited warranty will also cover it.
