LG launches the world's first 1ms IPS gaming monitor

LG launches the world's first 1ms IPS gaming monitor”

Calling it a "gamer's dream come true", LG's new monitors will be available in either a 38-inch or 27-inch variety.

Both displays feature DCI-P3 wide color gamut. Samsung's CRG5 gaming monitor has a 27-inch VA panel but it has a refresh rate of up to 240Hz, which is higher than LG's 144Hz refresh rate monitors.

LG has unveiled its latest gaming monitor, the LG UltraGear, at E3 2019, which features ultra-fast one millisecond response times - a world-first for an IPS gaming monitor.

It's usually the case that an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel offers benefits such as better color reproduction and viewing angles at the expense of slower response times than TN (Twisted Nematic) panels, but LG's UltraGear brings the best of both worlds. The company promises the most immersive gaming experience yet.

There are a few other differences between the two displays, including refresh rate (144Hz on the 27-inch, with the 38-inch able to overclocked to 175Hz), brightness (350 nits for the 27, 450 nits for the 38), aspect ratio (16:9 on the 27, 21:9 on the 38) and resolution (QHD on the 27, WQHD on the 38). Both models feature curved screen panels. The 27-inch model will go on pre-order starting July 1 in the U.S. and it will make its way in European markets in Q3 2019. It features an HDMI port and a DisplayPort. Plus, a new and improved version of LG's Sphere Lighting 2.0 at built into the rear of the monitor. There's no word on availability or pricing of this monitor, so we guess we'll get to know that information closer to the launch, whenever that is.

It also supports HDR10 (and VESA DisplayHDR 400 in the largest model), and the G-Sync capabilities have been certified by Nvidia running over 300 tests to ensure that the monitor delivers smooth action without screen tearing. This monitor will be available for United States dollars 400 (around INR 28,000) starting July 2019.
