South Korean technology giant LG has launched two new monitors in its UltraGear series today. According to the company, these are the first ever 1ms Nano-IPS Nvidia G-Sync monitors in the world. The company has launched two models – one is UltraGear 27GL850 that comes with a 27-inch display and a refresh rate of 144Hz and the other is UltraGear 38GL950G that has a 37.5-inch screen and comes with an overclocked maximum refresh rate of 175Hz.
According to LG, the two new monitors that have been launched are an “a gamer’s dream come true” as they have the ability to reproduce 98% of the DCI-P3 colour space and a 135% of the sRGB colour space. The two new offerings by the company also come with ultra-fast 1ms grey-to-grey response time. With these, LG has promised the most immersive gaming experience that is available yet.
Both the models of the monitor come with support for Nvidia’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology. We should mention that the 37.5-inch 38GL950G model comes with a curved screen that has an aspect ratio of 21:9. The model also comes with a UWQHD+ resolution and is also compliant with Vesa DisplayHDR 400 specification. The company is boasting of a virtually borderless design on the new monitor and has said that its 144Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to a 175Hz. In addition to this, a feature called Sphere Lighting 2.0, which is an array of RGB LED lights, is also present on the rear and can be used to project colours that make the experience even more immersive.
Coming to the flat 27-inch 27GL850 model, it comes with support for HDR10 and AMD FreeSync. The monitor is validated by Nvidia for G-Sync Compatible specification. The monitor has a QHD resolution coupled with a typical brightness of 350nits. The company has also said that the monitor does not come with flickering and artefacts. According to the company, the monitor is “virtually borderless” on three of its sides and can be tilted, swivelled and its height can be adjusted using its stand.
The monitor is said to reproduce the same 98% DCI-P3 and 135% sRGB colour spaces as the 37.5-inch 38GL950G model. The monitor does not come with Sphere Lighting 2.0.
The company has also said that the two are the world’s first 1ms grey-to-grey IPS displays and that they do not sacrifice on the performance in order to achieve the said speed. While the 38GL950G has one HDMI and one DisplayPort input, the 27GL850 comes with two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort.
The cost of the LG UltraGear 38GL950G is $1,999.99, which is approximately Rs 1,38,840. On the other hand, LG UltraGear 27GL850 monitor bears a price tag of $499.99, which is approximately Rs 34,710.
