When it comes to monitors these days, adding the word ‘gaming’ in front of the title had just lead to everyone assuming that the monitor is basically highlighting its high refresh rate, graphical syncing technologies and panel type. These 3 criteria are constantly compared by gamers all over to see what works for them and just how ‘gaming’ a ‘gaming monitor’ can be.
This is the AORUS CV27F, one of soon-to-be-many ‘Tactical Gaming Monitors’ that the IT brand had planned to release into the market.
Here’s a quick rundown on the key features this monitor has to offer:
Refresh Rate: With gaming in mind, the CV27F boasts a 165Hz refresh rate and 1ms MPRT (moving picture response time)
Brightness: This being a FreeSync 2 HDR compliant monitor, shines a max brightness of 400 nits, just good enough to attain VESA’s entry-level DisplayHDR certification
True Curves: Compared to 1800R curved monitors, the CV27F features a “true 1500R” curved VA panel that claims to follow the human eye’s natural curve, which in short is made to minimize eye-discomfort after staring at the monitor for hours.
The 'Tactical' bit
Just like the earlier models, the CV27F provides the same line of built-in features to live up to the ‘World’s 1st Tactical Monitor’ name:
- Black Equalizer: Brightens up the dark parts in the picture for better visibility in dark areas.
- Aim Stabilizer: This feature will helps reduce the blurriness of recoil effects when shooting in an FPS game. It can help trace moving enemies much easier.
- GameAssist: This is a kit of OSD functions that helps you in game. It includes a customizable crosshair, a counter, a timer, and multi-screen alignment lines.
- AORUS Dashboard: a dashboard overlay that displays hardware information directly on screen, such as mouse DPI and GPU/CPU monitoring
- OSD Sidekick: A much easier way to adjust your monitor.You can control the monitor through software and control your OSD with mouse and keyboard and not just clumsily pressing on the buttons on the bottom or sides of the monitor.
- Active Noise Cancelling(ANC): A wideband DSP chip with assisting software mixed inside the monitor that cancels surrounding noise when the end user connects their audio equipment to the monitor directly.
