Yes, I believe so, and HDMI might be limited to 4K120 as well.Does HDMI use DSC as well?
I am having same issues while playing Witcher 3 and Escape from Tarkov. Also noticed some glitches while watching YouTube and browsing Amazon. Only solution is to drop refresh rate to 120Hz.So if I could get some FI32U owners to test something out for me, it would be a big help:
I noticed some awful red flickering on a grey texture in a game I was playing, you can see it happening in these:
Image 1: Image 2:
I have determined that this only occurs when I am using 144hz, it doesnt happen at 120hz. I have tested this with the DP and HDMI cables supplied with the screen and it occurs at 144hz using either. It occurs on all overdrive settings (including off). It occurs at both 8 bit and 10bit (RGB and YCbCr444). It occurs at limited and full RGB range. It occurs when HDR is enabled and disabled.
I don't need to be in the game to see this effect, if i just observe this screenshot @ 100% maximized in chrome, irfan or windows photo viewer with the screen set to 144hz the same issue occurs when i scroll up and down (i direct linked the download on dropbox because the issue doesnt occur in the google drive photoviewer):
If any FI32U owners could download this screenshot png, open it in your photo viewer app, maximise the window it is in, set it to 100% scaling and scroll/pan up and down the image and see if they get the same red splotches appearing when the screen is set to 144hz, I would greatly appreciate it before I contact the store I bought this screen from
I ask that you maximize the window because these splotches don't seem to occur even at 144hz unless at least 95%+ of the monitor is displaying the image.
Does anyone have any theories on what could be causing this if I don't have a faulty screen?
Looks like Acer is selling Predator XB3 from their online store. Do these basically have identical specs as the Fi32U (including panel?)
I bought the Acer XV322QK from Best Buy to get a better return policy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-n...31-5-uhd-monitor-hdmi/6473374.p?skuId=6473374
It's effectively the same monitor as the XB3 but $100 cheaper, simpler stand and no RGB lighting. The XB323QK (your linked monitor), XV322QK, and FI32U are all the same panel, according to this link: https://www.displayninja.com/new-monitors/
DSC only becomes a problem with a HDMI 2.1 device that does not support it. Which is hopefully none.Yes, I believe so, and HDMI might be limited to 4K120 as well.
Honestly, DSC is supposed to be lossless and undetectable, so I'm not even 100% sure that is the problem.
I have a new HDMI cable, I can try later today and see if that helps at all. My guess is that it won't, DisplayPort should work fine at 4K144.

I can run my LG OLED with the Club3D DP to HDMI 2.1 adapter using Displayport's DSC vs HDMI 2.0 without DSC and I cannot tell a difference in picture quality. So I consider using DSC a non-issue.
Aorus FI32U seems like a pretty solid display based on TFT Central's review. If they improved the overdrive behavior a bit with firmware updates it would be good. Looking forward to 2nd or 3rd gen versions of this.
How in your opinion is the color/pic quality? I have an LG 34950 Ultrawide. I just want a 4k but I dont want to jump down in color/pic..Yeah, it's been 3 days for me and Gigabyte hasn't responded.
Luckily, with the games I play, I haven't seen this issue happen. So it's okay for now.
Thanks for the good info bro. Have you tried overclocking it a bit? I would love to know if it could squeeze a few extra hz out of it? Right in the nvidia control panel you can try set a custom resolution & see if It'll hold 150hz or 155hz? It's not uncommon for a monitor to be able ro OC 5-10 hz more easily without any compromise in image quality LOL if it hits 165hz. If I do buy it I will definitely try but curious if n e 1 else has already OC'd with success?Yes, this monitor supports 1440p fine. However, the image is softer, so will look worse than a 1440p native monitor. But I'd say it would still be acceptable, if not ideal.
In any case, I'm running this on an RTX 3060 and I can play all games I've tried at 4K but with reduced settings. Even Cyberpunk 2077 on low I can get 60 fps and it still looks great.
To be honest, it looks WAY better to set options to medium or even low to get 4K than to run at 1440p on high settings. But I can understand some newer games can be demanding, so you can always have 1440p as a fallback if you really can't get it to work.
And the 2080 Ti good, you should have no problem running 4K.
I tried 150Hz and 148Hz. No signal.
There is a setting for local dimming, I think the choice is Auto or Off. In any case, I haven't really been able to tell a difference.
I set HDR and local dimming to off so I could use the BFI mode on PC (which is great) and I use HDR local dimming on the PS5 (since PS5 doesn't support VRR yet and the framerates are too low for BFI to work well).
Bro I really appreciate your input. Thank you very much. That is great news. It can run HDR at extremely low input lag + super low response time with 4k or 1440p with a very high PPI. This is looking fantastic along with VRR this could be the sweet spot for monitors right now heavily considering this is performs superbly.Yes, you can turn off local dimming and still use HDR.
This exact same thing happens on the Gigabyte FV43U! IIRC it was reported to FV43U thread here hon hardforum, and I also recall seeing it in FV43U user reviews on either newegg or amazon.I am having same issues while playing Witcher 3 and Escape from Tarkov. Also noticed some glitches while watching YouTube and browsing Amazon. Only solution is to drop refresh rate to 120Hz.
I am using 3080Ti from Gigabyte, while using hdmi cable I can select 4k 144hz 12bit is 12bit even a thing?
Contacted Gigabytes support, regarding the issue.View attachment 392563View attachment 392565
10bit at 4k 120 requires 40 Gbps bandwidth, and most panels/TVs can't do more even though the max HDMI 2.1 bandwidth is 48Gbps on paper.is 12bit even a thing?
It will still look much blurrier than native. Note that everyone in that thread strongly recommends 1440p native over upscaling it on a 4k panel. "Run native, below native without upscaling, or go outside." <-- 4K does nothing to change that, judging from what I've read from people who have tried upscaling on 4k at 32". Why go for something that may look slightly less bad, if you can pick something that's gonna look good?Hello to all the owners of the FI32U. I am a prospective buyer for this monitor.
I just returned my FV43U only because the PPI Isn't as good when running it in 1440p resolution at 43" because my Seahawk 2080Ti EK-X can't run high enough frames in 4k so I run 1440p on demanding games until I can upgrade to a 3080Ti if/when availability/prices stabilize, if not I'm willing to wait for the 4000 series etc hanging on to my 2080Ti as long as I can because dropping down to 1440p on a 4k monitor that is smaller like 32" with higher PPI than a 43" is more reasonable also clearer & crisper.
Which brings me to this FI32U
F02 is the only version, and I flashed it to check and it didn't change anything.Does anyone know if new firmware has been released and if there is a changelog? I'm hesistant to update my panel due to the glitches PukasJG mentioned.
