When they release later this spring, Gigabyte’s gaming monitors should be available for as low as US$250 depending on the model.

You may or may not be familiar with Gigabyte. Chances are, however, at least one or more components in many of your computers over the past have been made by Gigabyte. The company has been branching out into full-blown systems, including laptops, recently and just announced three new gaming monitors at CES 2020.

The three new gaming monitors from Gigabyte feature IPS and VA display panels with response times as low as 1ms and refresh rates as high as 165Hz. The monitors will come in 27- and 32-inch sizes, in FHD and QHD resolutions, and flat and 1500R curved designs. In addition, all Gigabyte monitors are AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync compatible for smoother gameplay.

The flagship of the series is the Gigabyte G32QC Curved Gaming Monitor. A VA panel with a QHD resolution, 1ms response time, and 165Hz refresh rate, the coolest feature is a built-in KVM switch. In case you are unfamiliar, a KVM switch allows you to hook up multiple systems to it while only having a single keyboard, mouse, and monitor. During our one-on-one demo with Gigabyte, the company demonstrated KVM+ (as they call it) working with a smartphone. The KVM switch on the G32QC allows you to mirror your smartphone display to the monitor and then use the mouse and keyboard for typing, gameplay and more. Of course, you could theoretically use it with almost any device with a USB-C port. Check it out in the video below:
