LG is upping the stakes on its gaming monitor offerings with a new CES Innovation Award-winning suite of UltraGear and UltraWide panels being unveiled at CES in January. All are designed to improve the user experience “with superior design and cutting-edge performance.”
LG UltraGear Range
LG’s new UltraGear gaming monitors – models 27GN950, 34GN850 and 38GN950 – encompass both high-speed response and “excellent” picture quality on their 1ms Gray-to-Gray (GTG) IPS displays. The 27-inch UltraGear 27GN950 4K UHD monitor includes a claimed refresh rate of 144Hz, over-clockable to 160Hz, and supports hardware calibration for enhanced color reproduction. A DisplayPort cable supports VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) for “virtually lossless” performance on 4K UHD imagery. VESA DSC is HDR and NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible, allowing variable refresh rate and adaptive sync technology. Models 34GN850 and 38GN950 feature large 1ms IPS displays and a 160Hz refresh rate, while the 27GN950 and 38GN950 are VESA DisplayHDR 600-certified, and the 34GN850 supporting VESA DisplayHDR 400. Both monitors incorporate upgraded, durable stands.

Also on offer is the 38-inch Curved UltraWide QHD+ 38WN95C monitor (pictured in the header), a curved 3,840 x 1,600 model with a 1ms Nano IPS display and 144Hz refresh rate, also validated as NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible. Although targeted at business applications, as well as gaming, the monitor includes Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and three times the screen real estate of a 16:9 Full HD monitor. LG says its Nano IPS display covers 98 percent of the DCI P3 color space, while also certified as VESA DisplayHDR 600.
“Our 2020 monitor lineup surpasses expectations with professional-level performance, picture quality and speed,” said Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division. “The LG Ergo brings new value to users, ensuring comfort and well-being with its uniquely adjustable stand while the 27-inch UltraGear 4K model offers superior picture quality for the ultimate gaming experience and the 38-inch UltraWide builds on LG’s legacy of excellence in 21:9 displays.”
If you’re heading to Vegas in January, LG will be located on booth #11100 of the Central Hall at the LV Convention Center.
