Gigabyte launches the G24F and M28U gaming monitors with high-refresh-rates, low response times and plenty of ports
Gigabyte has launched two new gaming monitors, following the release of three AORUS monitors earlier this month. Gigabyte has called its latest monitors the G24F and M28U which have, as their names suggest, 24-inch and 28-inch panels, respectively. The two monitors may look similar, but they differ in key areas, besides their size.
On the one hand, the M28U supports 4K, up to 144 Hz and has HDMI 2.1 ports for high-refresh-rate gaming on next-generation consoles. The M28U is also VESA DisplayHDR400 certified, covers 94% of DCI-P3 and has dual 3W speakers. On the other hand, the G24F has a 1080p panel, albeit one that can run at up to 170 Hz. In saying that, the monitor has HDMI 2.0 ports, which will restrict it to 60 Hz on the Xbox Series or PlayStation 5 consoles.
Additionally, the G24F has a slightly lower DCI-P3 coverage (90%) and does not include any speakers. Gigabyte claims that the monitor is HDR capable, although it has no VESA DisplayHDR certification. The G24F also has a DisplayPort 1.2 connection instead of the DisplayPort 1.4 on the M28U.
However, both monitors support 8-bit colour, up to 300 cd/m2 peak brightness and 1 ms response times (MPRT). Similarly, both monitors have USB hubs, but the G28U has a third Type-A port and a Type-C port. The M28U's KVM switch is missing on the G24F, too.
Unfortunately, Gigabyte has not revealed how much the G24F or M28U cost. Availability remains unknown at this stage, too.
