LG has announced its newest lineup of Ultra monitors for 2020 that includes three models. These are LG UltraFine Ergo, UltraGear, and UltraWide with main focus on professionals, gamers, and anyone who prefers a widescreen monitor respectively. All of these will be showcased at the CES 2020 event in Las Vegas in early-January.
The LG UltraFine Ergo (32UN880) is a 31.5-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) monitor with a typical brightness of 350 nits. It is an IPS display panel with 95% DCI-P3 color gamut support and a 60Hz refresh rate. It further offers 5ms response time and is also compatible with HDR10.
It will support AMD Radeon FreeSync technology for providing variable refresh rates to those who prefer the same. The connectivity options include two HDMI ports, one USB Type-C port, one DisplayPort, two down USB ports, and one headphone output port. It comes with USB-C One Cable solution which will essentially allow users to achieve fast data transfer, get 4K image data, and even powering the unit through a single cable.
The LG UltraGear is a dedicated lineup of gaming monitors that offer 27-inch (27GN950), 34-inch (34GN850), and 38-inch (38GN950) display options. The 27-inch model has a 4K Ultra HD Nano-IPS display panel with a 144Hz refresh rate (160Hz overclocked) and 1ms response time. It further offers 450 nits of brightness and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut support. It is compatible with VESA DisplayHDR 600, DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync, and G-SYNC technologies. You will find two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, one up/two down USB ports, and a headphone output port for connectivity.
As for the 34-inch and 38-inch models, these feature IPS display panels with 1ms response time and 160Hz refresh rate. The two models are supported by VESA DisplayHDR 400 and DisplayHDR 600 respectively. All other features remain the same as the 27-inch model.
The all-new LG UltraWide monitor sports a 37.5-inch (38WN95C) 4K Ultra HD curved display. It has a Nano IPS display panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. It supports 98% DCI-P3 color gamut and VESA DisplayHDR 600. If you prefer variable refresh rates, it is compatible with G-SYNC and DisplayPort Adaptive Sync technologies. The monitor is claimed to offer viewing area three times to that of using a 16:9 Full HD monitor. It comes with a Thunderbolt 3 port, two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, two down USB ports, and a headphone output port.
There are currently no words on the pricing and availability details but we expect LG to reveal them alongside the CES 2020 reveal next month.
