Gigabyte FV43U Gaming Monitor Evaluation 2021


Nice colours and wonderful image high quality are two of the principle components that assist create immersion whilst you’re gaming. Regardless of the significance of fine shade, monitor producers don’t all the time calibrate the colour of their panels to what’s deemed correct inside particular shade spectrums – sRGB/Rec.709 for instance.

We like to check every monitor for shade copy to see how they might carry out in color-accurate eventualities.

Listed here are the outcomes for the Gigabyte FV43U.

NOTE: Gigabyte has pre-calibrated this monitor to a median DeltaE <2 – see picture beneath

Color calibration factory report FV43U

Like all the time, we began the colour accuracy efficiency part by working a preliminary check on the FV43U proper out of the field. For this monitor, the ‘Commonplace Mode’ preset was put in, setting the brightness to 152.77 candelas – barely over the beneficial luminance for on a regular basis utilization.

Wanting on the outcomes above, the Gigabyte did appear a little bit disappointing when in comparison with the IDEAL figures. For a begin, the White level measured in at 7478K, virtually 1000 over the 6500K supreme. That mentioned, black depth was fairly spectacular, leading to a 0.0353 rating. Distinction ratio was above the marketed specs (4331:1), however common deltaE fell in need of the mark, solely providing a median of three.82 – making the ‘Commonplace mode’ preset poor for any type of color-accurate work. Gamma measured in at 2.25.

I made a decision to load the factory-calibrated sRGB preset hoping for higher outcomes. As you may see, the FV43U did change into far more correct on this shade mode. We measured a 1.75 common deltaE which, regardless of not being the most effective we’ve ever examined, was nonetheless underneath the <2 that Gigabyte specified. White level was nonetheless poor and distinction ratio took a dip to 3688:1. That mentioned, black depth was nonetheless strong at 7820K. Gamma measured in at 2.29.

There was a tonne of different presets contained in the monitor’s OSD, however few provided accuracy that was near the sRGB spectrum. That mentioned, we did take some notes on the preset that are beneath:

FPS – The FPS mode provided up a blueish hue and extra saturation within the blue and inexperienced areas. The colours weren’t almost as correct because the sRGB preset, however FPS did off good distinction for essentially the most half.

RTS/RPG – This shade mode was essentially the most dramatic, providing up a darker profile that centered extra on distinction ratio than shade saturation.

Film Mode – Colours appear to have a slight saturation utilized when in comparison with FPS and RTS modes. The colours appear properly balanced, providing a extra nice viewing expertise.

After testing the assorted presets, I wasted no time and determined to calibrate the panel – recording shade gamut, panel uniformity, and general shade accuracy.

I chosen the ‘Consumer’ settings for the calibration, altering the RGB values to 99/87/97. 

Listed here are the outcomes:

Like all the time, after testing the monitor in numerous preset modes, we calibrated it to see how correct the colour copy might be. As you may see from the graph above, the outcomes had been a little bit bit disappointing as soon as once more. Usually we count on to see common deltaE drop to round 0.2-0.4. Nonetheless, for this monitor, the most effective we recorded was 1.12 – respectable, however not at all the most effective we’ve seen. We nonetheless recorded a most deltaE of three.18 – greater than what’s deemed acceptable for color-accurate work inside the sRGB spectrum.

That mentioned, black depth and distinction ratio nonetheless remained sturdy – one thing that’s not all the time the case after calibration. White level was nonetheless a little bit low, however general was an enchancment over out the field and sRGB presets.

Panel Uniformity

Panel uniformity is a check we run to verify how uniform the luminance and shade is throughout the whole thing of the display screen. Throughout this check, the middle sq. is used because the reference area. Each different sq. is then examined to see how far it differentiates from the reference.

In a great world, we wish each sq. to be inexperienced, that means it hasn’t damaged the differential threshold – one thing we are able to set initially of the check.

Be aware: outcomes will differ from panel to panel.


Panel uniformity FV43U image

The panel uniformity for this monitor was OK however did have some apparent anomalies – as you may see from the outcomes above. Nearly all of the display screen showcased a ‘inexperienced’ rating – providing good panel uniformity in each luminance and deltaE. The corners had been the plain anomalies, showcasing poor scores when in comparison with the remainder of the panel. That is pretty commonplace on VA panels. Nonetheless, with a 30% deviation in luminance, it could possibly usually be seen through the bare eye.

Viewing Angles

Viewing angles had been to be anticipated from a panel of this know-how. The VA know-how doesn’t provide the most effective viewing angles, with shade shift and brightness deviating on a reasonably apparent scale. See video beneath.

Shade Gamut

As a part of the calibration course of, the DisplayCal will give an correct measurement of the colour gamut the monitor can present. Beneath are the outcomes of the colour gamut check:

FV43U Color Gamut Measurements


Taking a more in-depth have a look at the colour gamut measurements, the FV43U clearly exceeds the sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 spectrums. After calibration, the monitor exceeded 174% sRGB gamut quantity – equating to a 99.5% protection. Each Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 spectrums had been exceeded by 19.9% and 23.3% respectively. That resulted in a 99.6% Adobe RGB and 94.1% DCI-P3 shade gamut protection.

FV43U Color Gamut Graph

Wanting on the bodily gamut graph, you may see the place on the colour chart the FV43U exceeds the sRGB spectrum – showcased by the dotted line. The FV43U shade gamut didn’t fairly cowl the blue nook of the sRGB area, usually the case in trendy LED panels.

Most And Minimal Brightness

We ended the colour accuracy and film high quality testing by checking the utmost brightness, minimal brightness, and 120 candelas factors on this panel. The outcomes are beneath:

Brightness Candelas
100% Brightness 735.46 cd/m²
0% Brightness 75.21 cd/m²
7 Brightness 120 cd/m²
