LG has just announced the impending release of three exciting new monitors, including a real treat for those who enjoy big screen gaming: a 48-inch OLED gaming monitor.
In addition to LG’s first OLED display made for gamers, there are also 4K Nano IPS and QHD Nano IPS monitors to choose from.
LG’s new UltraGear range includes the following models: 32GQ950, 32GQ850 and 48GQ900. As you can see, two of them have a 32-inch screen while one is a massive 48-inch beast. Perhaps more importantly, it’s a first for LG, as it’s the brand’s first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor.
All three monitors share a similar aesthetic that is reminiscent of esports with its sharp angles. The bezels are quite thin, although the two 32-inchers have a significantly wider bottom bezel. Another thing they all have in common is that they all offer access to HDMI 2.1 connectivity, and by extension, features like variable refresh rate (VRR) and 4K gaming.
Each of the new LG UltraGears is compatible with: Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium, but the 32-inch models support FreeSync Premium Pro. In addition, each of the monitors has a headphone jack with support for surround sound DTS Headphone:X, so you can plug in a headset while gaming. However, most people will still prefer to just plug the headphones directly into the PC or console.
Let’s start with the most impressive entry from this lineup, which is undoubtedly the 48GQ900 – a 48-inch 4K gaming monitor with an OLED panel, 120 Hz refresh rates and a response time of 0.1 ms. The refresh rate of 120 Hz can be brought to 138 Hz by overclocking.
Being an OLED monitor, the screen has the potential to deliver beautiful colors and deep contrasts. LG tops it off with a low-reflection anti-reflective coating. If you want a large-scale, immersive gaming experience, it sounds like this UltraGear display is the one for you, but LG hasn’t revealed its price yet. One thing is almost certain: it will not be cheap.
Moving on to the two 32-inch (or more accurately, 31.5-inch) monitors, they share the same size and panel type: Nano IPS, as well as the same 1ms response time. Unlike the larger model, they have more flexible stands, meaning they can swivel and are both tilt and height adjustable.
The UltraGear 32GQ950 gives you access to 4K gaming with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. It is also LG’s first model to implement ATW Polarizer technology. LG teases that using this technology delivers stunning colours, deep blacks and strong contrasts, all over a wide viewing angle. The monitor is VESA Display HDR 1000 certified, meaning brightness peaks at 1000 nits. The refresh rate is slightly higher than on the 48-inch model, allowing 144Hz to be overclocked to 160Hz.
Finally, we have the 32GQ850, and while it has a few things in common with its sibling, you’ll notice a few key changes as well. This is a QHD monitor with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 that significantly boosts refresh rates, peaking at 260 Hz when overclocked. The brightness is toned down from the other 32-inch display as this is VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified.
LG hasn’t talked about pricing yet, but has announced an estimated release date. The monitors will hit the market in Japan for the first time this month. Markets in North America, Europe and Asia will follow at some point, but it probably won’t be long before they top the rankings. best gaming monitors†
