The no-compromise, ultimate gaming monitor is now ready to take on the world as LG has announced the new UltraGear 27GN950 gaming display.
Originally revealed during CES 2020 and has been crowned the Innovation Award and Red Dot Design Award, both the company and community itself have high hopes for it to further break the specification ceiling as it is the worthy successor to last year’s similarly 1ms UltraGear 27GL850 and surely, the 27GN950 does not disappoint us too.
The panel is a nano IPS capable of displaying 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) with 400 nits of brightness at a 27-inch measurement. The refresh rate is capped at 144Hz with 1ms Gray-to-Gray response time and honestly, current top-of-the-line hardware can barely reach 144FPS at 4K anyway so it should be sufficient enough for any enthusiast-grade gamers out there. But with the Nvidia Ampere “coming soon” to us, it might break that barrier as well. Speaking of which, the display is G-SYNC compatible and I wouldn’t count this as a high tier gaming monitor if it doesn’t have it.
The color range is pretty decent as well, coming in at 98% DCI-P3 with support of VESA DisplayHDR 600 standards that guarantee you vivid colors and proper brightness management to enjoy both movies and games. If it doesn’t suit you well out of the box, the hardware calibration wizard and the base 10-bit color depth should help you get in the comfort zone for your professional visual work.
Looking at its design, this time LG decided to add a wing flare at the back of the device to show off it is designed in mind for gamers and a V-shaped base for stability. As for adjustment it can both pivot and tilt and the height is tunable too. The I/O consists of 2 HDMI, 1 DisplayPort, 2 USB3.0, and a Headphone jack with Maxx Audio compatibility.
Official pricing for this beast is not available yet but expect it to be in the range of RM4000 to RM5000 or even higher due to its impressive performance. On the other hand, visit its product page for the full list of information.
