Very little information is available for this display but it appears that Gigabyte will at some point soon release a 31.5″ sized display of their own with 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and a high 144Hz refresh rate – the Aorus FI32U. This would mark their venture in to this long sought after combination in a screen of this size. Other screens expected with this res/refresh rate combination are also covered in this news piece. The FI32U has appeared on a Russian retailer with some specs and features listed, although we would take some of this as unconfirmed at this stage, and subject to change. We will update this news piece when we have more concrete information.

According to the specs provided on the Russian retailers website the screen will be 31.5″ in size with an IPS panel. This will offer a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/m2 brightness and 178/178 viewing angles. The screen will also support a 10-bit colour depth and wide colour gamut covering >90% DCI-P3. The Gigabyte teaser page suggests a 99% Adobe RGB and 150% sRGB coverage, although then oddly lists “P3” in the summary for that section, without providing an actual DCI-P3 spec.

Adaptive-sync is supported for VRR from both compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems. Gigabyte’s website talks about a Super Speed IPS panel and a supposed 0.5ms response time, but we are unclear if this is supposed to be G2G or MPRT. If it’s supposed to be G2G then we would take that figure with a pinch of salt.

Along side with strong hardware specs, you can also find the exclusive Aorus tactical features on new Aorus 4K gaming monitor lineup including Aim Stabilizer, Dashboard, Black Equalizer, ANC 2.0 and other various game assist functions. All of these extra features help to elevate your game-play to whole new level, promising more fun & delivers a new fresh gaming experience.

Updated 13 April 21 – For connectivity there will apparently be 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (hopefully with DSC but not listed), 1x USB type-C and 2x USB 3.0 ports. On the original retailer listing HDMI 2.0 was suggested, but according to some very early teaser information from the official Gigabyte page, this screen will include HDMI 2.1 as well. This will be pleasing to those wanting to connect latest generation PS5 and Xbox Series X games consoles.

DisplayHDR is also listed on this teaser page but we are not expecting any major local dimming support here, and it is not expected to feature a Mini LED backlight or anything like that. Expect limited edge lit local dimming of some sort.

A full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate functions are expected from the stand. Expect to see the usual Aorus monitor features like RGB lighting, loads of gaming preset modes and features like Black stabilizer, FPS counters etc.

More info on official specs, availability and pricing when we get it.
