Gigabyte have released details of their new M32Q gaming monitor on their website. This model is 31.5″ in size and uses a 2560 x 1440 resolution “Super Speed” IPS panel, combined with a 165Hz native refresh rate and small 170Hz overclocking feature. Gigabyte promote a range of gaming features including a 1ms G2G and 0.8ms MPRT response time spec and their updated Aim Stabilizer Sync technology. The screen features adaptive-sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems.
In other specs the screen offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 8-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut covering 94% DCI-P3 (120% sRGB).
According to the listed spec the screen includes Gigabyte’s recently updated “Aim Stabilizer Sync” technology, giving rise to the 0.8ms MPRT spec. Aim Stabilizer is their name for a motion blur reduction backlight option which has been around for a while. The “sync” in the name is not really discussed on the product page for the M32Q, but has been discussed on their Aorus FI32Q display before. It’s not 100% clear what this is supposed to offer as for that screen their website states that the “Upgraded Aim Stabilizer is able to conduct the motion blur reduction and V-Sync technology at the same time!”…We would have thought that this feature was designed to offer simultaneous VRR (G-sync/FreeSync) and blur reduction like Asus’ ELMB-sync technology does, but the use of the term “v-sync” makes this a bit confusing.
There are a range of additional features including familiar features like Black Equalizer (for adjusting dark scene gamma), loads of gaming preset modes etc. There is no RGB lighting on this screen as it features a more basic design. An additional KVM feature allows you to control multiple devices via one set of keyboard, video and mouse and is a feature Gigabyte are keen to promote. There are PbP and PiP modes supported too, and the screen also includes 2x 3W integrated speakers.
The stand offers tilt, height and swivel functions (no rotate). For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x USB type-C and 2x HDMI 2.0 connections provided along with a headphone jack and 2x USB 3.0 ports.
