Display technology is one of those components that gamers are constantly on the lookout for. Once you have your chosen means of gaming, whether a console or PC, the next logical step is the display. By far and wide, the 1440p segment has been slow to adopt various features often seen in the 4K tiers. Features such as in-plane switching (IPS) or HDR have been largely missing from the 1440p market up until the last year or so. On the other hand, 1440p has been immensely popular for those seeking high refresh rates without being too demanding on gaming hardware. GIGABYTE has released the AORUS F127Q-P Gaming Monitor, which seeks to fill some of the gaps for those looking for such features.

There are two variants of this display, the F127Q and F127Q-P. The main difference is that the F127Q-P has a DP 1.4 port, while the other has DP 1.2. gave the F127Q favorable scores for most items except HDR. There, it only received 7.1, but that is understandable with its peak brightness measurements. Measurements often registered around 402-408 cd/m² for either SDR or HDR content. It also noted black uniformity issues. Pricing and availability for the F127Q-P are not known yet, but the previous model did retail for around $549.00, so it could be in the $550-$600 range.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
