Gigabyte has been at the forefront of some pretty exciting gaming monitor news in recent months, most of which has been generated around the rumours of an entire slew of high-performance 4K HDMI 2.1 monitors set for market.
Back in April, Gigabyte was quick to boast a new lineup of 4K monitors that would support the needs of next-gen console gamers. At the time, however, not many details regarding the panels were leaked to the public. Fortunately, Gigabyte didn’t keep consumers waiting too long – recently unveiling a complete spec list for some of the top-performing options at an ‘in-person’ event in Vietnam.
We’ll be focusing on the FV43U in this article, their 43-inch 4K 144Hz gaming monitor that, like the rest of the lineup, also supports HDMI 2.1 connectivity.
Gigabyte FV43U Specifications
The FV43U is clearly designed with next-gen console gamers in mind. The AORUS FV43U comes equipped with a 43-inch VA panel that supports 3840 x 2160 (UHD 4K) screen resolution and Quantum Dot technology. Users can also expect a rapid 144Hz refresh rate, HDMI 2.1 support, and a reported 1ms MPRT. That, for all intents and purposes, is the perfect balance of specifications for any gamer that requires a smooth gaming experience with crystal clear image clarity.
This monitor isn’t just responsive though, the VA panel inside it offers a good contrast ratio with deep blacks and excellent coverage of the Adobe RGB (99%) and DCI-P3 (97%) spectrums. It also supports a peak brightness of 1000 nits and is VESA DisplayHDR1000 certified – offering a premium HDR experience for both gaming and general content consumption.
Inputs for this panel include 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB Type-C, 2 x HDMI 2.1, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4 (DSC), 1 x 3.5mm audio out. The stand doesn’t come with any functionality or adjustments – however, you can mount this on a 200 x 200 VESA interface.
Where Can I Buy Gigabyte FV43U?
Unlike some of the other monitors in this lineup, the Gigabyte FV43U is actually available to buy – if you’re lucky enough to find one. We’ve seen listings on few retailers, with prices seemingly starting at around $1,000. With sales already coming in thick and fast, we expect stock levels to be pretty dire – like most hardware at present.
