Gigabyte introduced the new Aorus CO49DQ gaming monitor

Recently, Gigabyte introduced the new Aorus CO49DQ gaming monitor. Beyond a range of gamer-friendly features, Gigabyte has positioned this product as a versatile tool for multitasking and content creation, such as film or music editing, catering to productivity-centric use cases. In terms of specifications, the Aorus CO49DQ utilizes the same Samsung panel as the previously announced MSI MPG 491CQP QD-OLED.

The Aorus CO49DQ gaming monitor features a 49-inch QD-OLED panel with an 1800R curvature, 10-bit color depth, a 32:9 aspect ratio, and a DQHD resolution (5120 x 1440). It boasts a refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time (GtG) of 0.03ms, laying the foundation for an exceptional gaming display experience. Additionally, it incorporates a glare-free design, covers 99% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and is VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified. This monitor also supports Picture-by-Picture (PBP) and Picture-in-Picture (PIP), facilitating efficient multitasking for users.

The term Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a buzzword in the IT industry, often used in marketing to enhance product features. Gigabyte notes that the Aorus CO49DQ supports the “OLED Care” feature, which utilizes AI-based OLED protection technology to minimize the risk of screen burn-in.

The Aorus CO49DQ is equipped with a rich array of connectivity options, including two HDMI 2.1 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4, a full-function USB Type-C port (supporting DP-Alt mode with 18W reverse power supply), and an audio jack. It also offers KVM functionality and a hub feature, with two USB 3.2 Type-A ports for easy peripheral expansion. Additionally, the monitor is fitted with two 5W speakers.

Gigabyte has also provided an ergonomically designed stand that supports rotation and tilt adjustments. Furthermore, the monitor is compatible with 100 x 100 mm VESA wall mounts, allowing gamers to use articulated arm mounts for flexible positioning.
