GIGABYTE has just introduced its latest gaming monitor, the AORUS CO49DQ, in India. Design-wise, the lighting and patterns at the back are mapped onto the products with an efficient, free-flowing style.

This monitor boasts a 49-inch curved QD-OLED display with a resolution of 5120 x 1440p, providing a Dual Quad High Definition (DQHD) experience in a 32:9 aspect ratio.

With 10-bit color depth and 99% DCI-P3 color space coverage, it ensures rich and accurate colors, supported by an AI-based OLED Care feature for seamless preset adjustments.

Designed not just for gaming but also for productivity, the AORUS CO49DQ offers an ultrawide screen equivalent to two 27-inch monitors in a 16:9 format. Its 1800R radius curvature reduces distractions and enhances immersion, promoting better ergonomics for long gaming sessions.

For gaming enthusiasts, the monitor supports a high 144Hz refresh rate and ultra-fast 0.03ms response time (GtG), along with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for smooth gameplay.

Moreover, its 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification ensure exceptional color accuracy and quality for professional tasks like video editing.

Additional features include a KVM switch for quick device switching, Picture-in-Picture (PiP), and Picture-By-Picture (PbP) modes. Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.1 and a DisplayPort 1.4 port.

The monitor also houses two five-watt speakers and a built-in power supply (72W AC power input) to minimize cable clutter.  GIGABYTE offers a 3-year warranty covering potential panel burn-in, emphasizing its commitment to quality.
