LG Debuts Sweet UltraGear Nano 1ms 38-inch 175Hz HDR Gaming Monitor

UltraGear Nano IPS G SYNC s
LG has unveiled a couple of drool-worthy gaming monitors that are sure to garner some attention from enthusiasts around the globe. The new 38GL950G measures 38 inches across and checks off nearly every box when it comes to buzz-worthy features expected today of gaming monitors.

Perhaps its most impressive spec is that this is the world's first IPS monitor with a response time of just 1ms (GtG). That puts the panel on level footing with TN panels, which are known for their ultra-fast response times. If that wasn't enough, LG says that the display panel has a maximum (standard) refresh rate of 144Hz, but it can be overclocked to a dizzying 175Hz.

The 38GL950G has a resolution of 3840x1600 (21:9 aspect ratio) and a brightness rating of 450 nits. Other features include full NVIDIA G-SYNC support and it is DisplayHDR 400 certified. Since this is a high-end gaming monitor, you won't be too surprised to learn that LG has included Sphere Lighting 2.0, which adds RGB lights to the back of the display.

This 38-inch gaming display will be joined by a smaller 27-inch counterpart, the 27GL850. This monitor also has refresh rates that top out at 144Hz, but overclocking to 175Hz is not supported. The resolution also takes a hit, coming in at 2560x1440. LG is only saying that the 27GL850 is "G-SYNC compatible" and that it has a typical brightness rating of 350 nits. As for HDR, the 27-inch variant is only spec'd for HDR10 and you miss out on the RGB light show.

One place where the 27-inch monitor does have a leg-up on its larger counterpart is the inclusion of dual HDMI ports instead of a single HDMI connection. Both feature a single DisplayPort connection along with gamer-centric LG-specific features like Black Stabilizer, Dynamic Action Sync, and Crosshair.

Preorders for the 27-inch monitor open up on July 1st, but LG hasn't said anything about availability for the larger 38-inch model at this time. Pricing has not yet been announced for either monitor.
