LG Electronics has announced that they will be introducing two new gaming monitors at IFA 2017 in Berlin next week. Their new monitors promise to offer a “visually stunning experience” and “deliver a winning edge in competitive gaming.”
The first model, the 32-inch 32GK850G, combines a high refresh rate of 144Hz (overclockable to 165) with a QHD (2560x1440) screen and NVIDIA’s custom G-Sync technology, which reduces stuttering and screen tearing when the monitor is used with a compatible NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU. Described as the “ideal display for game enthusiasts who want seamless, quick motion gameplay on large screens with high picture quality,” the monitor provides 350 nits (or cd/m2) of brightness.
In addition, the monitor also features sphere lighting, using LEDs on the back of the monitor to create ambient lighting in order to reduce eye fatigue and increase the immersiveness of games. LG appears to be taking a page out of Philips’ book by introducing their own version of Philips’ AmbiLight or AmBX technology. To add to this, the monitor will also offer unique improvements such as “Black Stabilizer” to deliver clearer contrast and “Dynamic Action Sync” to minimize input lag. The screen will have a one-click stand on which the tilt, height, swivel and pivot can be adjusted.
