Hybrid monitors are here, and they make perfect sense. The barrier between a television and a monitor is becoming more and more diffuse.
Perhaps we are taking the first steps towards the definitive fusion of monitors and televisions. There are fewer and fewer things that differentiate them, and that’s good news for consumers.
Before they were very different products. They had other connectors and opposing panels. The TVs only had one resolution, with a fixed and low refresh rate, and high latency.
But in recent years consoles have been turning into computers. And since they connect to a television in the living room, they have forced the televisions to change. It is now common for TVs to have game mode, high and variable refresh rates, low latency, and other monitor features.
Gygabyte has put up for sale a massive 54.6-inch gaming monitor, the Gigabyte S55U with 4K resolution, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision IQ.
It is a gaming monitor, and the product sheet makes it very clear, with specific functions such as a synchronization stabilizer with the PC, a personalized crosshair in games, a stopwatch and an on-screen alarm to predict enemy patterns or when you get ammo.
But at the same time It’s also a TV because it has a remote control to select television channels, Dolby Atmos and DTS HD sound, Android TV and a Chromecast. So you can install apps like Netflix, Prime VIdeo, Disney+ etc. on the TV itself, and enjoy to the fullest series and movies with 4K resolution and HDR+10 or Dolby Vision.
The 54.6-inch panel has technology Quantum Dot and an extended 96% DCI-P3/140% sRGB color gamut. Offers 4K resolution at 120 Hzwith a 5000:1 contrast ratio, a brightness of 1,500 nightsy a response time of 2ms.

In the connections section it has two HDMI 2.1 ports, two HDMI 2.0, two USB 3.2 Gen 1, one USB 2.0, Ethernet, headphone jack and fiber optics, WiFi 5, and Bluetooth.
Unfortunately we are left wanting to know the price, which has not yet been revealed. But surely it exceeds 1,000 euros.
Although Gigabyte defines it as a gaming monitor, we miss two things that are very common in monitors: a DisplayPort port, and NVIDIA GSync support.
Recently Sony has launched another hybrid monitor, the Sony Inzone M9 (Analysis and opinion).
