Gigabyte have announced a range of new monitors in their AORUS gaming line-up. This includes new 32″ 4K 240Hz, 27″ 360Hz and 34″ ultrawide 240Hz models. The headlining model is their AORUS FO32U2P which boasts a 32″ QD-OLED panel, 4K resolution, 240Hz refresh rate and is even listed as including DisplayPort 2.1 with apparently the full UHBR20 bandwidth capability. More info on these below.

Gigabyte AORUS FO32U2P
This is the flagship new model, and offers a 32″ (accurately 31.5″) sized QD-OLED panel from Samsung Display, with a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and 240HZ refresh rate combined. There’s been loads of other screens announced using this exact same panel from Dell, MSI, Samsung and Asus already, but the key difference with Gigabyte’s model is that they specifically list DisplayPort 2.1 (with the full UHBR20 bandwidth apparently) in their specs and announcement.
That would make it the first gaming monitor announced so far with the full DisplayPort 2.1 bandwidth capability, not even the massive 57” Samsung Odyssey G95NC with its dual 4K resolution and 240Hz refresh rate features UHBR 20, as that model uses UHBR13.5. Of course, there aren’t actually any consumer grade graphics cards that support UHBR20 yet so that will presumably make testing and development of this Gigabyte screen very difficult, and perhaps might delay launch a bit. For loads more information on DisplayPort 2.1 check out our new article here. The DisplayPort on the FO32U2P also supports Daisy Chain, simplifying multi-display configurations with reduced cable clutter.
This screen also has a range of “Tactical” gaming features including a dedicated button to switch between different simulated screen sizes and resolutions for different gaming genres, including for instance 24″ at 1080p for competitive gaming. Gigabyte also introduced their “OLED Care” measures which are an AI-drive suite of solutions to address image retention concerns.
In other specs there is a 0.03ms G2G response time spec, 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio, 99% DCI-P3 gamut and certification under the VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black tier (not to be confused with HDR 400 for LCD’s).
Gigabyte didn’t provide a release date but we’d expect it to be launched during the first half of 2024. There is also a similar model, the FO32U2 which looks like it will be the same panel and features, minus the DisplayPort 2.1 connection. It relies on HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4 instead it seems.
Gigabyte AORUS FO27Q3
Less information was provided but this is a 27″ sized screen with a 2560 x 1440 resolution and 360Hz refresh rate. It’s using the same Samsung QD-OLED panel as other announced 360Hz OLED gaming monitors. It’s expected to have many of the Tactical features discussed above too. We’d expect this to be launched during H1 as well.
Gigabyte AORUS MO34WQC2
This is a 34″ ultrawide model with a 3440 x 1440 resolution, 21:9 aspect ratio and 240Hz refresh rate. This will also have a 0.03ms G2G response time spec, 99% DCI-P3 colour gamut, 8-bit colour depth and AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ certification for VRR. There are 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.1 and 1x headphone connection provided. KVM support is also featured. This seems to be less curved than the 800R Acer and Asus models announced recently, and so we are seeking further clarification around the panel type and launch dates. We originally assumed it would be LG.Display’s WOLED panel which would imply a Q1 launch date, but we need more information on this model.
