We take an inside look at each of these innovative new products by one of the world’s top consumer electronics brands.
2021 LG UltraGear Gaming Monitors
Boasting Nano IPS 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) displays, LG’s new UltraGear gaming monitors (models 27GP950, 32GP850 and 34GP950G) deliver the ultimate gaming experiences. All three models instantly make games of any genre more immersive and boast high speed and picture quality, superior screen resolutions and a wide color gamut (DCI-P3 98 percent).
The 27-inch UltraGear 4K UHD monitor (model 27GP950), for instance, facilitates fast, fluid gameplay with a rapid refresh rate of 144Hz clockable up to 160Hz. It also supports HDMI 2.1 Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) for fluid images and enables users to enjoy exhilarating 4K gaming at up to 120Hz on both PCs and the latest generation of consoles.
The premier gaming performance of 27GP950 is backed by LG’s hardware calibration, which allows the monitor’s Nano IPS display to reproduce colors that are both exceptionally accurate and incredibly vibrant.
The LG 32GP850 monitor is a worthy successor to the acclaimed 27GL850 model released in 2020. The 31.5-inch Quad High Definition (QHD) Nano IPS monitor delivers next-level gaming with an ultra-high speed 165Hz refresh rate liquid crystal panel, easily ramped up to 180Hz. This UltraGear is NVIDIA G-SYNC® Compatible and takes gamers deeper into their favorite titles offering rich, vivid images without tearing or stuttering.
The LG 34GP950G, a 2021 CES Innovation Award-winner, brings a cinematic quality to games courtesy of its 34-inch, 21:9 aspect ratio UltraWide QHD Nano IPS display with 144Hz refresh rate (over-clockable to 180Hz). This monitor features NVIDIA G-SYNC® ULTIMATE, the highest tier of G-SYNC performance officially certified by NVIDIA. It offers the best picture quality and more immersive gaming experience.
Additionally, models 27GP950 and 34GP950G are VESA DisplayHDR 600-certified, while the 32GP850 monitor supports HDR10 for dynamic gaming at its best. Each model features a screen with a matte finish to reduce reflections and an attractive circular design on its rear casing that forms part of LG UltraGear’s distinctive, futuristic look.
2021 LG UltraWide Monitor
Another CES Innovation Award winner, LG UltraWide monitor 40WP95C, is a multi-tasking powerhouse featuring a 40-inch curved Nano IPS display with 5K2K UltraWide (5,120 x 2,160) resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio. With its generous screen, this monitor can help boost users’ productivity, letting them view and do more on-screen at any one time.
This makes the display a great choice for digital content creators, developers and anyone who multitasks on a regular basis. The 40WP95C delivers stunningly sharp image quality with 98 percent (typical) coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and 135 percent of the sRGB color space thus providing the precision needed for the most detailed work with support for HDR 10 guaranteeing impeccable HDR performance.
LG UltraWide also meets the connectivity needs of the modern professional with a host of options including Thunderbolt™ 4, which simultaneously provides fast data transfer and power delivery via a single cable. This monitor is ergonomically designed with full tilt, height and swivel adjustability, ensuring complete comfort for every type and shape of user.
2021 LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro
With its accurate color reproduction and outstanding HDR and SDR picture quality, LG’s UltraFine Display OLED Pro (model 32EP950) is an ideal solution for creative industry professionals such as visual effects artists and producers working in film or animation studios.
The self-emissive OLED display gives the 31.5-inch 4K monitor a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. Independent dimming control of its more than eight million pixels helps eliminate the distracting halo effect common to HDR LCD displays. UltraFine Display OLED Pro also provides superb color accuracy, covering 99 percent (typical) of both the DCI-P3 and the Adobe RGB color space.
LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro achieves the color fidelity digital artists’ demand thanks to its 10-bit 4K OLED display and LG Calibration Studio. LG’s hardware calibration solution allows users to make direct adjustments to ensure the highest degree of color accuracy and consistency. And for convenient connection with a wide range of devices, the monitor features several ports: one USB Type-C with 90W charging, two DisplayPort, one HDMI and three USB.
