Although LG exited the mobile market, LG’s laptop department is well alive. The company is known for its Gram series – a super lightweight laptop. LG hasn’t dabbled on the gaming laptop niche until today. LG recently announced its first-ever UltraGear Gaming laptop – the LG UltraGear 17G90Q. It is built with an NVIDIA RTX 3080 Max-Q GPU, paired with an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake-H CPU and a fast 1080p IPS 1ms display with a 300Hz refresh rate. Check out more details from the official news release below.
LG UltraGear 17G90Q Is The Company’s First-Ever Gaming Laptop
LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled its first gaming laptop (model 17G90Q), expanding its premium UltraGear lineup and bringing exciting news to gamers worldwide. A powerful performer with a seriously sleek design, the CES 2022 Innovation Award-winning laptop delivers sublime gaming experiences and the freedom to enjoy them anywhere, at any time.
LG’s take-anywhere gaming rig features an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H processor, NVIDIA GeForceTM RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, dual-channel memory, and an ultra-fast dual SSD setup. In addition to a 17-inch IPS panel with a 1-millisecond response* time and a 300Hz refresh rate, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop ensures immersive, fluid gameplay for even the most graphically demanding PC games thanks to the latest top-of-the-line hardware. Also, LG’s cooling system with vapor chamber keeps the laptop running cool, even when pushed to the limits.
Sharing DNA with LG’s lightweight gram laptops, the 17G90Q has a streamlined, highly-portable design. The new, slim laptop packs a large screen and an impressive 93Wh battery while maintaining a thickness of under 21.4 millimeters and a weight of less than 2.7 kilograms. The LG UltraGear gaming laptop features an aluminum casing that offers style and durability, while the winged UltraGear badge on its exterior clearly communicates the power and quality LG’s premium gaming brand is known for.
The 17G90Q further optimizes the gaming experience via LG’s gaming software, LG UltraGear Studio, which lets users customize gaming-related options and track a variety of performance data – including CPU clock, GPU TDP and clock, and memory share rate – in real-time. And for a completely unique setup, users can choose and apply a different color to every single key of the laptop’s attractive RGB keyboard.
Along with next-level personalization, speed, and superior picture quality, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop delivers realistic, three-dimensional sound with its built-in 2 Way speaker system. Supporting DTS:X Ultra, the speakers accurately convey the directionality and location of sounds in the gaming environment, helping players to find their teammates and track down their enemies more easily. What’s more, the 17G90Q comes with Intel® Killer Wireless, which helps guarantee a fast, stable network connection for lag- and frustration-free online gaming experiences.
Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company: “The LG UltraGear gaming laptop has everything needed to tackle the latest high-spec games, delivering the smooth, responsive gameplay that all gamers want,”. “Our first-ever gaming laptop, the 17G90Q differentiates itself from competing products with its premium hardware, generous, high-quality screen, and a sleek, lightweight design that maximizes convenience and portability.”
