Tech & Gaming Highlights; LG Introduces World’s First 4k IPS 1 Millisecond (GTG)1 Monitor

LG Electronics has announced the release of their latest edition in monitors for immersive gaming – the UltraGear™ (model 27GN950), the world’s first 4K IPS 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG)1 gaming monitor. 

The 27-inch model is a worthy successor to the brand’s first 1ms GTG IPS gaming monitor (model 27GL850) introduced last year. Last year, LG UltraGear monitors were named the top gaming designed monitor in the US.

LG UltraGear monitors are known for achieving stunning speed without compromising picture quality. The new UltraGear monitor also builds on the accurate colours of its predecessor to deliver 4K resolution for maximum gaming impact. This is all done through a combination of speed, high resolution and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space. And not only that, thanks to VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology, the 27GN950 can deliver virtually lossless 4k UHD images in 10 bit colour with a 144 Hz refresh rate via just a single DisplayPort cable. 

LG’s monitor supports hardware calibration enabling the company’s proprietary Nano IPS display to offer the most precise color reproduction possible. And with VESA DisplayHDR™ 600 certification, the UltraGear 27GN950 guarantees quality in the form of outstanding color accuracy, dynamic contrast, high luminance, and a wide color gamut. NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and support for HDR ensures enhanced image quality with reduced screen tearing and minimized stutter that works seamlessly with VESA DSC for an incredibly realistic gaming experience.

Other than that, LG’s new UltraGear is the ideal all-in-one solution for those who livestream their gaming sessions thanks to its expansive 4K-resolution screen. The generously proportioned display is advantageous for creative professionals when editing high-resolution files or accessing multiple applications simultaneously. Support for the 10-bit color depth and hardware calibration also gives the monitor color accuracy needed for professional-level video production work. 

“Our latest gaming monitor delivers the unrivalled performance consumers have come to expect from LG UltraGear,” said Jang Ik-hwan, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company.
