The AORUS CV27F is one of the most responsive gaming monitors in the market. By accelerating the twisting speed of the liquid crystals, the response time can be reduced to 1ms, and let you enjoy a fluent gaming experience without any ghosting effects. This feature is particularly useful with high tempo games!
The AORUS CV27F is one of the very first monitors that adopted 1500R curved panel. The 1500R panel gives you an immersive feel just as you are looking at the real world.
AORUS CV27F features a 27” FHD panel (1920x1080 resolution) in a 16:9 aspect ratio with a 165hz refresh rate, which allows you to enjoy games and movies in their original size. CV27F supports AMD Radeon™ FreeSync 2 technology which puts an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames, and create a fluid and artifact-free performance at any framerate, which also supports HDR technology.
The higher the color gamut of the panel, the wider the range of colors displayed. DCI-P3 is a common RGB color space for digital movie projection from the American film industry. Compared to sRGB, DCI-P3 covers more red and green, which is more powerful and sharper, allowing people to see more realistic colors. With HDR technology, AORUS CV27F Gaming monitor can provide users with richer color levels.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays delivers better contrast and color accuracy, as well as more vibrant colors, compared to Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) displays. As a result, HDR is gaining interests from a wide range of applications, including gaming, movie entertainment, and creation of multimedia content. The aim is to let the human eye see the picture as real as possible.
AORUS CV27F Gaming monitor boast the most advanced LED systems in the market today.

Black Equalizer can control the shadow of the display to enhance the contrast and increase the visibility of the dark scene without overexposed the bright area, so in the game, Black Equalizer will deepen the details of the dark part without affecting other display areas. Let us easily find enemies hiding in the dark.
The GameAssist gives you the ability to create several custom crosshairs and assist you on the battlefield. Onscreen timer and counter can keep track of elapsed game time, and help to calculate the opponent's use of props or any count information.

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
