    great.we need more 4K high refresh options
    m28u is a great proposition for the money,hope those will be too.

    Very nice! Curious to see reviews of this unit. Hopefully it is as good or better than the M28U

    Pity about the fake 10-bit support (8bit+FlickerRC) or else this would have been the perfect all around consumer/professional monitor.

    Do these monitors burst into flames though?

    exactly, and the weak-as-pigeon-poop HDR 400 compliant rating
    in 2021 this should be HDR600 minimum, and not just "compliant", but full HDR 600 10 bit.

    but they just can't quit the Edge Lighting which ends up exacerbating whatever "ips glow" is present
    and they don't even have to do FALD, just rear lighting hopefully in a few zones.

    but other than that Gigabyte has been on a roll with monitors

    So the FRC to effectively get 10 bit colour is what causes noticeable flickering in LCDs which don't use PWM? I heard that before but never read anything that confirmed it.

    And yeah, HDR400 is pretty worthless considering it can't really display HDR content.

    2021 and monitors still suck at hdr and what not. 1440p is still the sweet spot if you ask me.

    Something is wrong with this announcement, doubt that Gigabyte will use the exact same name for a WHQD model.

    G32QC and G32QC A where released some time ago and are both QHD : 2560x1440.

    G32QC - 2020 - 9‎4% DCI-P3 / 124% sRGB - 75W(Max)
    G32QC A - 2021 - 9‎3% DCI-P3 / 121% sRGB - 78W(Max)

    Also old news, but I guess better with some old news than no news :D

    I bought a G32QC some time ago, had to RMA it after a month since it wouldn't turn on, power supply was fine so something was up with the monitors power board.
    Didn't run into any issues with the replacement G32QC.

    Huge difference between the G32QC's HDR 400 and Samsung's C32G75T's HDR 600, actually enjoying playing with Windows 11 HDR / Auto HDR on the latter.
    Didn't notice a huge difference between Phillips Momentum's HDR 1000 and the G32QC's HDR 400, probably because it doesn't stay that bright for more than some seconds, makes one wonder how good VESA's certification requirements are.
    But you are right, it's still not the same as what a propper HDR10 TV can do.
