LG UltraGear Nano IPS is World’s First 1ms Gaming Monitor

LG Ultragear Gaming Laptop

At E3 2019, LG has revealed its latest gaming offering, two new monitors in its UltraGear series offering a one-millisecond response time. These are the first 1ms Nano-IPS Nvidia  G-SYNC compatible monitors in the world. The UltraGear series offers a 27-inch (27GL850) and a 37.5-inch (38GL950G) configurations, and both variants feature curved screens with minimal bezels. Both the variants also offer 98% DCI-P3 wide color gamut.

The larger model comes with a curved, wide-angle monitor and a 37.5-inch screen, a resolution of 3840 x 1600 and a brightness of 450 nits. The second model has a smaller 27-inch display, a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and a brightness of 350 nits. However, their main headline is their smooth motion. As well as the one-millisecond response time with both boasting of high refresh rates: 144 Hz for the smaller model and up to 175 Hz for the larger one. They’re also both compatible with Nvidia’s motion-smoothing G-SYNC technology.

The flat 27-inch 27GL850 model supports HDR10 and AMD FreeSync (Vesa Adaptive Sync) which is validated by Nvidia for the G-Sync Compatible specification. It can reproduce the same 98 percent DCI-P3 and 135 percent sRGB colour spaces as its bigger sibling. It does not have the Sphere Lighting 2.0 feature.

The monitor will be hitting the European markets in Q3, and we’ll have to wait until it is on sale to find out how much it will be costing. However, we have no word as yet regarding the availability of the 38-inch option, but we should know more shortly.
