LG unveils IPS 1ms gaming monitor

At the E3 show this week LG unveiled a new LG UltraGear Nano IPS NVIDIA G-SYNC gaming monitor, the “world’s first” 1 millisecond IPS display. The company says the Nano IPS tech achieves “phenomenal” color reproduction, fast 1ms response time, and a refresh rate of 144Hz, overclockable to 175Hz.

The monitor is available in 38- and 27-inch screen sizes (models 38GL950G and 27GL850, respectively) and overall performance promises not be sacrificed in exchange for speedy performance.
Both models have a 144Hz refresh rate for gaming, and resolutions of 3840 x 1600 (21:9 curved aspect ratio screen) on the 38-inch model and 2560 x 1440 on the 27-inch model. Color gamuts of 98% of DCI-P3 are claimed for “vibrant, detailed” images. Sphere Lighting 2.0 is included, an array of RGB lights located at the rear of the monitor that changes color to match on-screen action.

At this year’s E3, LG Electronics USA unveiled the new LG UltraGearTM Nano IPS NVIDIA G-SYNC gaming monitor, the world’s first 1 millisecond IPS display.

The 27-inch LG UltraGear monitor supports HDR10 while its larger sibling, the 38GL950G, supports an NVIDIA G-SYNC processor, VESA DisplayHDR 400, and is certified by NVIDIA through multiple tests for performance and image quality.

LG previewed both models at the E3 gaming expo this week in Los Angeles, and are set to roll out next month, with U.S. pre-orders starting July 1 for the 27-inch mode from LG authorized retailers. No news on pricing yet, but for more information, please visit LG’s website here.
