Hey ya'll,

 

I need more space on my screen for my side hussle and I want to upgrade to a 32" 4k gaming monitor, min. 120hz.

A gaming monitor because I sometimes game and a high refresh is awesome also when just doing office work.

 

What would the experts here recommend?

 

Price max. 1100€

 

Thanks so much <3

There are only two 32 inch gaming monitor (high refresh) at the moment, Gigabyte Aorus FI32U and Asus RoG PG32UQ (well, also kinda UQX but at 3 grands that option is as good as not exist for most people)

 

Gigabyte is cheaper and faster but you are trading some colour performance and peak brightness (espeacially peak HDR brightness) for it, and their motion performance isn't great (7 ms response time at best, that borderline VA performance)

 

Asus is more espensive and somehow managed even worse response time than Gigabyte but made up for it with better coverage of wide gamut colour spaces. It also have better HDR implementation with HDR600 certificate (not great but still better than Gigabyte max 400 nit HDR.)

 

For people who want to do colour critical work as well as gaming (and also want some decent HDR), Asus is a better option, for everyone else, better stick with Gigabyte I guess. Even better, wait for the next gen products, the current 32 inch 4k gaming monitor has been rather disappointng thus far.

Thanks for your answers.

 

I did some research and it seems that soon these will be released:

 

ROG Swift PG32UQ

Gigabyte M32U

 

What do you guys say about them?

pg32uq has the widest color gamut ever on a mid range monitor if thats ur thing according to HUB, could just be a lucky unit though, m32u is the first 4k/120hz monitor in this price range.

So which one would you choose?

 

My feeling goes towards the Asus PG32UQ. As I now have a Asus 24" monitor and these monitors seem very good. As I am very happy with it, but it's only 1080p and 24".

 

Any one knows something about it's release in Europe?

Either the FI32U or wait for other new releases.

Don't buy a monitor out of "brand loyalty". Every brand has pad products, including Asus. And the PG32UQ is not a good monitor. It has performance on par with by now 5 year old IPS monitors. Other than the color gamut the Gigabyte FI32U is better in every regard. And depending on what you want to do with your monitor, you likely don't even need the wide gamut of the PG32UQ.

There are more 32" 4K monitors coming. Afaik LG, Gigabyte, MSI and other display brands are already working on them.

 

Or go for a 27" 4K monitor. Therey are much more developed as they have been on the gaming market for a few years now.

Here the Gigabyte M28U is the best one atm.

4k on a 27" doesn't make sence.. even not on a 28". 32" is like the minimal size for a 4k for me. 27" / 28" is good for 1440p..

What my use case is, is that I do office work mainly and then sometimes game on it.

@stahlmann is right about how slow the pg32uq is, i have the older x27 and the ghosting at 120hz/144hz is...noticeable already, and the pg32uq is even slower, haven't seen it in person, but even the uqx is very slow. It's more suitable for media consumption than pc gaming. The wider the gamut the slower the response time. Asus might have pushed the envelop a bit far with this one. I'm still slightly interested to see how it looks in person though ngl.
