Gigabyte has launched its S55U gaming monitor, with Newegg offering limited quantities of in the US. With a 55-inch panel operating at 4K and 120 Hz, the Gigabyte S55U masters current generation games consoles. The absence of DisplayPort connections is a shame, with four HDMI ports present instead.

Gigabyte has issued a press release about the launch of the S55U, a gaming monitor that the company unveiled in May. As we discussed previously, the Gigabyte S55U is a 55-inch gaming monitor with a 120 Hz and 4K display that also offers 2 ms response times (GtG). For some reason, Gigabyte's press release is missing any pricing or availability details, which the company had not announced in May, either.

For some reason, Gigabyte has confirmed these details on Reddit instead. For example, a Gigabyte Community Manager has posted 'Introducing the S55U' on the r/gigabyte and r/gigabytegaming subreddits with a Newegg product link. Posted earlier today, the Community Manager insists that Newegg has a limited quantity of S55U monitors, albeit without confirming how many. Unfortunately, Newegg lists the monitor as being out of stock and has not provided an MSRP either.

Evidently, the Gigabyte S55U was orderable, even if only briefly. Incidentally, Gigabyte and Newegg chose to bundle a complimentary USB Type-C to Type-C (10 Gbps) cable with the S55U, worth US$24.99 at the time of publication. It remains to be seen when the Gigabyte S55U will be orderable again, nor what other retailers plan to carry it. For context, the Gigabyte S55U relies on a VA panel and has four HDMI ports split equally between the HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 2.1 standards. Additionally, the gaming monitor ships with Android TV, three USB Type-A ports and an Ethernet port, among other connections.
