LG unveils 1ms IPS gaming monitor
June 12, 2019
At this year’s E3 gaming expo, LG Electronics has unveiled the new LG UltraGear Nano IPS NVIDIA G-SYNC gaming monitor – which it says is the world’s first 1 millisecond (ms) IPS (In Plane Switching) LCD display.
The UltraGear employs Nano IPS technology to achieve high colour reproduction, ultra-fast response time and a refresh rate of 144Hz, overclockable to 175Hz, according to LG.
Available in 38-inch (model 38GL950G) and 27-inch (model 27GL850) screen sizes, both UltraGear Nano IPS monitors feature fast 144Hz refresh rate, high screen resolutions (38GL950G: 3840 x 1600, 27GL850: 2560 x 1440) and wide colour gamut (DCI-P3 98 percent) for incredibly vibrant, flicker-free detailed images. The larger monitor is designed to increase gamers’ sense of immersion with its 21:9 aspect ratio, curved screen, virtually borderless design and the upgraded Sphere Lighting 2.0, RGB lights on the back of the monitor that heighten the ambience when gaming by altering the colors of the lights to match the on-screen action.
The 27-inch UltraGear is NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible and supports HDR10 while the larger 38-inch model supports both NVIDIA G-SYNC processor, VESA DisplayHD 400 and is certified by NVIDIA through over 300 tests for performance and image quality to provide a great gaming experience.
Both monitors deliver smooth motion without tearing or stuttering and include gamer-specific settings such as Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer and Crosshair for ultimate accuracy, especially in FPS games.
LG UltraGear Nano IPS gaming monitors are set to roll out next month, with pre-orders for model 27GL850 commencing in the US on July 1st with availability in key European markets in the third quarter of this year.
