GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, the leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has launched the world’s first tactical gaming monitor, AORUS AD27QD, today.
Heading into a new market, AORUS is confident that the exclusive features on the monitor can give gamers a tactical advantage over their enemies while gaming. AORUS AD27QD is a 27inch flat screen frameless monitor. It uses a 10 bit IPS panel with QHD (2560×1440, 2K) resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate in 1ms (MPRT) response time.

On top of that, the monitor has passed VESA certified Display HDR 400 standards which give users spectacular display quality; With AMD Radeon FreeSync™ technology, the monitor can provide the most fluent gaming experience to let you enjoy your gaming without picture stripping.
AORUS designed the outer shell to replicate the dive of a falcon when it is pursuing its prey. If observed from the back of the product, one can see a falcon diving downwards with the glowing eyes of the falcon on the side of the stand and its wings flapping along with the LEDs flashing on the back of the panel. In order to achieve this, GIGABYTE used digital RGB LEDs instead of traditional LEDs. To enhance the appearance of our product AORUS added in several ergonomic features carefully without affecting the design theme. They designed a handle on the top of the stand so that users can easily move their monitor around without any trouble. To facilitate cable management, they designed a rubber cable tie just below the ports and reserved a hole at the bottom of our stand to let the cables go through nicely.
A lot of exclusive features are included on this new monitor and they are all designed to meet the gamers’ needs giving them a tactical advantage in game. Features such as Black Equalizer, Aim Stabilizer, GameAssist, hardware information Dashboard, OSD Sidekick, and the most unique feature of all, the Active Noise Cancelling function, are all designed to let gamers gain more control of the game and their PC system.
