Looks like 2020 will be great even for the monitors. For the past 2-3 years, the prices of the monitors dropped significantly and the features in new monitors are getting better and better on a daily basis. Take a look at the Gigabyte’s new gaming monitor- “G34WQC“. A monitor which is aimed at enthusiasts and doesn’t compromise in any of its features.
The Gigabyte G34WQC is an ultra-wide monitor with a resolution of 3440×1440 pixels and boasts a refresh rate of 144Hz. It features a VA 1500R panel with a viewing angle of 178°(H)/178°(V). This is better than the TN displays we have in gaming monitors and should provide better colour accuracy.
For gamers who play fast-paced games like CSGO, Valorant, Fortnite, and PUBG, 144Hz is definitely an awesome thing but in my humble opinion, an ultra-wide monitor is generally not suitable for a competitive FPS game. While you can play competitive fps games on an ultra-wide display, it will be a perfect choice for AAA titles that will provide an excellent immersive gaming experience.
According to Gigabyte, it has, “Fantastic color display and 90% DCI-P3 super wide-gamut color” and has a brightness level of up to 350 cd/m2. For a quick response, this monitor is equipped with a 1ms response time which is very much needed for professional gamers and inbuilt 2x 2W speakers which you can use as an alternative for speakers or headphones in case you don’t own any.
The monitor can be tilted -5°~+20° but doesn’t provide any Swivel feature. You can also adjust it’s height as Gigabyte equipped it with a 100mm height adjustment stand or you can wall mount it using the Vesa mounting feature.
The monitor is set for retailing in August or September worldwide.
