Gigabyte unveils the S55U display, a 54.6-inch monitor for gamers. Mouth-watering features.
Gigabyte is trying its hand at the giant screen again for your living room. The Gigabyte S55U is not a television because there is no antenna socket on the back of the product, and probably not the same image processing found for conventional televisions. This screen is intended above all for players who are already used to watching TV using SVOD services or live TV via the Internet using services such as Molotov or Salto.
Objective: the best screen for video games
With a diagonal of 54.6 inches, it is obvious that this screen is still intended to take pride of place in the living room instead of a television. We don’t really think about putting it on a desk to use Windows with a keyboard and mouse, like a classic monitor.
The Gigabyte S55U is therefore a 54.6-inch LCD VA screen with a 4K definition of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The brand promises a response time of only 2 ms GTG, which would be much lower to televisions. The latter with their image processing system generally have a longer response time. HDR is obviously part of it with Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ certification.
To best manage the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, the Gigabyte S55U offers an HDMI 2.1 port at 48 Gbit / s and eARC, therefore at the top of the standard. We also have the right to two HDMI 2.0 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, an RJ45 Ethernet port, a jack port, a USB 2.0 port and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless.
Another good point, the screen runs on Android TV which will allow you to access all the popular services of the Play Store without worries. Unfortunately, Gigabyte does not give any information on the SoC integrated into the screen, to give an idea of the performance to expect and its ability to decode videos.
Gigabyte has not indicated an availability date or price for this screen which should, one imagines, be in a high price segment.
