Gigabyte Announces their AORUS AD27QD Tactical Gaming Monitor

Much like ASUS ROG and MSI before them, Gigabyte is entering the gaming monitor market, revealing their Aorus AD27QD Tactical display, the company's first foray into the AMD FreeSync ecosystem. 

The Aorus AD27QD is a 27-inch 10-bit IPS display, offering thin bezels on three sides, a resolution of 1440p and a refresh rate that can reach as high a 144Hz. The monitor also supports AMD's FreeSync standard and features VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, though strangely the monitor is not FreeSync 2 certified. At this time it is unknown whether or not this monitor functions correctly with Nvidia G-Sync (using VESA Adaptive Sync).

What makes the AORUS Tactical special is its non-standard features, all of which can be used to give gamers an advantage, especially within online games. The Aorus AD27QD's Black Equalizer will help brighten dark regions to increase visibility, the OSD's GameAssist will allow a custom crosshair to be drawn on the screen, and the display's Active Noice Cancelling feature can help gamers get rid of unwanted noise when a microphone is connected through the monitor.   



The screen itself is an edge-type IPS panel, which supports 95% of the DCI-P3 colour space, with the screen also sporting built-in digital RGB lighting though Gigabyte's RGB Fusion 2.0 app, which can be used to define the colours of the AD27QD's rear lighting. Each zone of this monitor's RGB lighting can be adjusted independently.     

Input-wise this screen supports dual HDMI 2.0 inputs and a single DisplayPort 1.2 connection as well as twin USB ports for additional connectivity. The screen also supports VESA 100x100 mounting systems and supports swivel, pivot, tilt and height adjustment options when using the display included stand. 

Settings within this monitor can be changed using the screen's built-in joystick control system or using Gigabyte's OSD Sidekick software. A Picture-in-Picture mode is also available if users need to connect two screens to a single Aorus AD27QD.

Gigabyte's Aorus AD27QD tick every box on the high-end gaming checklist, supporting QHD resolution, a 144Hz framerate, a wide colour gamut for excellent colour reproduction, and support for variable refresh rates to enable smooth, tear-free gaming experiences. 

Starting today, Gigabyte's Aorus AD27QD will be available at specific retailers worldwide. Box UK currently has this monitor available for pre-order for £534.99 with an expected shipping date of February 1st.

More information on Gigabyte's AORUS AS27QD is available on Gigabyte's website

Not sure why everyone sees the need to create a monitor this time around.


Also, this game assist software should be forbidden! This is cheating in some games! Sadly, it's not trackable, I guess, so VAC and the Blizzard-Team will have no chance to validate....Quote

Well every mouse and keyboard that uses a macro is against EULA so lets forbid these too. In fact any keybind you set to repeat (common in blizzard games) is forbidden.

It's pointless fighting manufacturers to stop this. Unless you are stupid like Dell advertising their laptops to be capable of running more "cheat DLLs" for fortnite and pubg, then you can fight back. Yep, they actually did that Quote

That's true, but I think there is a slight difference between repeated keystrokes and adding a crosshair or even showing you on screen where footsteps come from (that's what ASUS does).


Also, big LOL to Dell !!Quote

If it's only DisplayHDR400 certified then it might not reach the minimum specifications for FreeSync2 validation, which I think includes a minimum luminance of 500 nits.
I don't think the game assist stuff is actually that useful or particularly cheaty, you can make dark areas of most games brighter with some settings tweaks or just a better monitor if that's an advantage & the screen crosshair stuff is something anyone can do with a bit of blu tac.Quote
