Gigabyte rolls out the AORUS CV27F, claiming this is world's first "tactical gaming monitor" (even though they launched the AD27QD earlier this year). This 27" display has a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and features a 1500R curve. It has a VA-based panel with 1ms response time (MPRT), 165 refresh rate, 90% DCI-P3 and 8-bits color. It supports FreeSync 2 and comes with several "tactical" features, which are explained in the press release below.
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, launched a “true 1500R” curved monitor, the AORUS CV27F Tactical Monitor. The CV27F uses a 27 inch FHD (1920x1080 resolution, 16:9 ratio) 1500R curved VA panel. Comparing to 1800R curved panels, 1500R is more similar to the natural curve of the human eye which gives you a stronger immersive feel.
The AORUS CV27F also gives you 1ms (MPRT) response time and 165Hz refresh rate, along with 90% DCI-P3 and 8 Bits color, for beautiful picture quality. The other feature of AORUS CV27F is it supports AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology. This technology provides LFC (Low framerate compensation) techniques and brings your HDR quality to the next level. Using this monitor to watch movies, streams or videos is a luxury.
The AORUS CV27F uses digital LED lighting and provides a metal stand for you to adjust your monitor in 3 dimensions. It also comes with a built-in power board design which can save you the trouble of using a chunky adaptor. The CV27F also has the same innovative tactical features as the other AORUS tactical monitors, the exclusive ANC function which gives you clear communication with your teammates, GameAssist, AORUS Dashboard, and all the tactical features are included. The AORUS CV27F also supports alignment lines which help you splice the monitors together and give you the luxury to have a super immersive feel.
