Product Snapshot

Overview

Similar to the Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD, the Gigabyte M32Q is a mid-tier 1440p gaming monitor that made its first appearance in 2021. It intends to provide a responsive gaming experience to professional and amateur gaming enthusiasts. This monitor has native FreeSync premium, is G-SYNC compatible, and features variable refresh rate, providing near-perfect tear-free gaming when connected to AMD Radeon on NVIDIA GeForce GPUs. A super low input lag of just 4 ms and split-second GtG response time of 1 ms provides latency-free gaming and flawless motion. This unit supports HDR with decent peak brightness and even accepts 10-bit signals. However, this display doesn’t even come close to the legendary contrast ratios and deep blacks on similar VA panels like the M32QC. Continue reading our full Gigabyte M32Q review to learn about all its features and discover how it compares with the best-ranked computer monitors today.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Gigabyte M32Q is a hit with gamers, thanks to its FreeSync tech, G-SYNC compatibility, and variable refresh rate. It also has a lightning-fast 4 ms input lag and 1ms GtG response time. Plus, its HDR mode and decent peak brightness make it a great choice. Unfortunately, its low contrast ratio, lack of local dimming, and poor black levels are a bit of a letdown.
