Calling it a “gamer’s dream come true,” LG unveiled two new monitors in their LG’s UltraGear line. The monitors are said to be IPS displays with one millisecond response times.
The screens will come in either 38 or 27-inch sizes and will be compatible with Nvidia’s G-Sync. Admittedly, the smaller screen is only listed as compatible with G-Sync hardware. The larger screen, on the other hand, supports the Nvidia processor as well as VESA DisplayHDR 400. The larger screen also has a better refresh rate, which is able to overclock to 175Hz while the smaller screen comes in at 144Hz. The bigger screen also has a 21:9 aspect ratio, WQHD resolution, and 450 nits of brightness. The 27-inch screen offers a 16:9 aspect ratio, QHD resolution, and 350 nits of brightness. If you really want to set the mood, the bigger screen comes with LG’s Sphere Lighting 2.0. The RBG lights on the back of the monitor can add to the immersive feel of the screen by changing colors to match what is happening onscreen. The larger model also features a curved design to increase the sense of immersion.
Both screens sport a DCI-P3 wide color gamut. There is a lack of ports, with no headphone out and only one display port. There are three USB 3.0 ports. The larger model only has one HDMI port while the smaller has two.
The superfast response time creates smoother motion without flickering, tearing, or stuttering, which can pull gamers out of the immersive aspect of a game. You can also select from gamer-specific settings like Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair.
The LG UltraGear Nano IPS monitors should be released sometime in July, with preorders happening on July 1. European markets will have to wait until the third quarter to get their monitors.
