OLED technology is attractive due to its combination of speed and image quality, particularly for dynamic content such as games. The Gigabyte AORUS FO32U2P is designed with this in mind, adopting a ‘gen 3’ QD-OLED panel with HDMI 2.1 and DP 2.1 for enhanced connectivity. This includes allowing games consoles such as the Xbox Series X and PS5 to use a 120Hz ‘4K’ UHD signal. The screen includes a coated metal stand with slim and wide legs and adopts the common ‘dual stage’ bezel design. This includes a slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen, plus thin hard plastic outer part and an ‘active area’ surrounding the image is used for pixel shifting (an image retention mitigation measure). The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick plus 2 shortcut buttons facing downwards in the central region of the bottom bezel.

A sharp design

A 31.5″ Samsung Display QD-OLED (Quantum Dot OLED) panel is used with 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution, a glossy anti-reflective screen surface and 240Hz refresh rate. VRR support is included via Adaptive-Sync (and presumably HDMI 2.1 VRR), allowing VRR technologies such as AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and Nvidia ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ to be used. A 1.5m:1 static contrast ratio is specified alongside 178°/178° viewing angles and 10-bit colour. The monitor has ‘flicker-free’ illumination with a specified 250 d/m² (1000 cd/m² HDR peak, based on panel) typical maximum luminance and 99% DCI-P3 colour gamut. A 0.03ms grey to grey response time is specified, but as usual pay little attention to the exact figure. The monitor responds to HDR10 content with VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification, with additional higher brightness HDR capability included. The per-pixel illumination, generous DCI-P3 coverage and 10-bit colour support can be put to good use, alongside some high brightness peaks.

The stand attaches centrally via quick-release mechanism and can be removed to reveal provision for 100 x 100mm VESA mounting. ‘RGB Fusion 2.0’ LED lighting is included above and beneath the attachment point. The stand is fully adjustable, including 130mm (5.12 inches) height adjustment and pivot into portrait. The ports face downwards and include; 2 HDMI 2.1 ports, DP 2.1 (with UHBR20), DP out, USB-C (65W PD, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), 3.5mm microphone jack, 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports (plus Type-B upstream) and DC power input (external ‘power brick’). KVM is supported for easy display input switching and USB peripheral sharing between 2 systems. 2 x 5W speakers are also included for potentially reasonably rich sound output.


Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed for ~$1200 USD. A slightly cut down version with DP 1.4 (plus DSC) is also listed for ~$1100 USD., the FO32U2.
