Gigabyte launches new gaming monitors with built-in KVM

Gigabyte launches new gaming monitors with built-in KVM

Gigabyte M27F Gaming Monitor

Gigabyte has announced a new line-up of gaming monitors with built-in KVM and designed to enhance work productivity. The KVM feature is traditionally not found on gaming displays, but Gigabyte says it thinks gamers could find some use for it, particularly with many people now owning multiple mobile devices.

The KVM will allow you to hook up multiple systems to the same screen, which should make switching between different devices a lot simpler. This will work with mobile devices as well, so users can use their keyboard and mouse and take advantage of the bigger display to play mobile games. In addition, the Gigabyte M27F and M27Q come with USB-C ports that support display, data, and power delivery to mobile devices. 

The KVM button sits directly on the monitor, and the dedicated button means you won't need to dig through the OSD menu to enable it.

Elsewhere, Gigabyte hasn't neglected the fundamentals of gaming displays either, and it's touting high refresh rate panels with fast response times, good colour reproduction, and wide viewing angles. The M27F features a 27-inch FHD IPS display, a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time, and 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space. The M27Q is the higher-end model, boasting a QHD IPS display with a 0.5ms response time and 170Hz refresh rate. It is also DisplayHDR 400-certified for an improved entertainment experience.  Finally, you get support for PIP/PBP modes, which provides even more options when it comes to multi-tasking. 

The Gigabyte KVM gaming series is slated to hit shelves between September and October.
