The LG UltraGear gaming monitors aim to offer fantastic visuals with Nano IPS technology and it’s wide-gamut capabilities. This new line of redesigned, high-performance screens combine professional-grade imaging quality with high refresh rates and VRR tech to upgrade your visual experience. Two new ultrawides head the LG UltraGear gaming monitors, but it looks like there is more to come.
Why We Love LG Monitors
LG isn’t as popular as Asus or Acer in the gaming space, but their offerings are very competitive when it comes to visual qualities such as color and uniformity. This fact isn’t surprising since the company specializes in IPS panels which it also produces as OEM modules for other companies. Some of Monitornerd’s staff have excellent experiences with LG monitors over the years thanks to their consistency and reliability.
But one of the most significant factors why we love LG, and its gaming line is the unique and streamlined aesthetic designs. Monitors like the LG 32GK850G have subtler looks without excluding the gamer-centric touch, making it the most attractive display in its segment. The new LG UltraGear monitors will most likely share these physical traits, and we can’t help but be excited.
LG is also one of the biggest proponents of the OLED display segment in the 4K HDR TV market. We loved the LG C8 OLED TV, so we’re secretly hoping that the Korean firm will break boundaries and create an OLED gaming monitor.
LG UltraGear Gaming Monitors
The LG UltraGear gaming monitors are lead by two high refresh Ultrawides with Nano IPS technology and HDR capabilities. Both are advertised to have wide gamuts to produce eye-popping colors in games and movies.
The LG 34GK950G features a Nano IPS panel with a 3440 x 1440 resolution and a 120Hz overclocked refresh rate. This variant is the G-Sync compatible model from the two which will enable Nvidia GPU users to enjoy buttery-smooth gaming. We’ve seen this combination of specifications from existing offerings such as the Alienware AW3418DW, but what sets the LG 34GK950G apart is its 98% DCI-P3 coverage for jaw-dropping vibrancy.
This rating is UL Verified to be 35% larger than the standard sRGB gamut, so superb vibrancy is practically guaranteed. The LG 34GK950G will also sport the Sphere Lighting feature we loved from the 32GK850G which doubles as an RGB decoration and a bias light. There is no specific release date for the LG 32GK850G yet, but it will launch with an SRP of $1399.99 and is available for pre-order via the link below.
The LG 34GK950F is more enticing than the previous model for its more impressive specification list. This monitor sports the same 34-inch Nano IPS panel with a 3440 x 1440 resolution, but its refresh rate goes up to 144Hz. This higher limit breaks the standard in ultrawide monitors which has been set by several variants in the market at 120Hz.
The LG 34GK950F is also the only model advertised with HDR400 compatibility, even if both share the UL Verified 98% DCI-P3 coverage. This model also features AMD’s newer FreeSync 2 that’s designed for HDR gaming. The Sphere Lighting add-on isn’t included with the LG 34GK950F, but its faster refresh rate is what will drive up its sales.
What to Expect from the LG UltraGear Gaming Monitors Series
The question everyone is asking is if there will only be these two ultrawides from The LG UltraGear gaming monitors line. There is no word from the company as of this time regarding different variants, while the gaming community waits for the two models above. Will there be more upcoming displays with upgraded specifications and features?
The short answer is yes, according to the LG UltraGear gaming monitor’s official US market page. The terms 240Hz and UHD are pasted on some of the images, hinting at newer high-end models in the near feature. There are models such as the LG 27GK750F in the market, but we could see more options that sport Nano IPS panels with DCI-P3 coverage and HDR capabilities.
A UHD or 4K variant from the LG UltraGear series would be impressive as well since the options for gamers in the market are still lacking. We’re also secretly hoping that LG will release a 144Hz 4K variant that will compete with the Asus PG27UQ and the Acer X27. We would love a cheaper FreeSync 2 variant that will open up the 4K 144Hz segment for more gamers.
