LG UltraGear Nano IPS NVIDIA G-Sync Gaming Monitor Unleashed – LG 38GL950G and 27GL850

LG recently announced two very interesting gaming monitors featuring Nano IPS technology, 1ms GTG response time and NVIDIA G-Sync – the LG UltraGear 38GL950G and 27GL850 gaming monitors. The LG 38GL950G is a 38-inch ultrawide QHD+ monitor with a refresh rate of up to 175Hz when overclocked. Meanwhile, the LG 27GL850 is a 27-inch QHD FreeSync monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate. It’s not G-Sync, but it’s a certified G-Sync compatible monitor and it also features HDR10. Personally I find both gaming monitors to be interesting. The larger LG 38GL950G would be more immersive and has higher refresh rate. But the smaller LG 27GL850 features HDR10 and it’s significantly cheaper than the 38GL950G. Check out the rest of their features, specifications and price from the official news below.

LG 38GL950G and 27GL850 UltraGear Nano IPS G-SYNC Gaming Monitors

LG UltraGear 38GL950G and 27GL850 – World’s First Nano IPS 1ms GTG Gaming Monitors

The LG UltraGear monitorsTM are a gamer’s dream come true, employing Nano IPS technology to achieve phenomenal color reproduction, an ultra-fast 1ms response time, and a refresh rate of 144Hz, overclockable to 175Hz. With blazing speed and stunning picture quality, this LG monitor is the complete package, enabling users to enjoy the most immersive gaming experiences yet.

The new Nano IPS 1ms monitor is available in 38- and 27-inch screen sizes (models 38GL950G and 27GL850, respectively) and is the first IPS display capable of achieving a 1ms Gray-to-Gray response time. LG’s new Nano IPS 1ms monitor offers an unrivalled 1ms experience, while overall performance hasn’t been sacrificed in the quest for speedy performance.

Both models provide over a 144Hz refresh rate for seamless gaming and precise control, with tens of millions of pixels – 3840 x 1600 (38-inch), 2560 x 1440 (27-inch) – and wide color gamut (DCI-P3 98 percent) for incredibly vibrant, detailed images. The 38-inch model, for example, can reach an overclock rate of 175Hz. The 38GL950G is also set to increase gamers’ sense of immersion with its 21:9 aspect ratio, curved screen, virtually borderless design and the upgraded Sphere Lighting 2.0 – an array of RGB lights located at the rear of the monitor that heighten the ambience of when gaming by changing color in accordance with the on-screen action.

The 27-inch LG UltraGear gaming monitor is NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible** and supports HDR10 while its larger sibling, the 38GL950G, supports both NVIDIA® G-SYNC processor, VESA DisplayHDR™ 400 and is certified by NVIDIA through over 300 tests for performance and image quality to provide a great gaming experience. Both monitors deliver smooth motion without tearing or stuttering and include gamer-specific settings such as Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair, which ensures enhanced accuracy, especially in FPS games.

LG 38GL950G Sphere Lighting Feature

By the way, the LG 38GL950G features Sphere Lighting 2.0, a bias lighting that will illuminate the background of the monitor. If the bias lighting is as good as what we see in the photo above, then I’m impressed. It’s not some gimmicky RGB lighting like in some gaming monitors that you will not probably see and appreciate most of the time.

Pricing and Availability

The UltraGear Nano IPS gaming monitors are expected to be rolled out by July 2019. Pre-orders will start on July 1 for the LG 27GL850. The LG 38GL950G will come later. The LG 27GL850 comes with an MSRP of $499.99 while the LG 38GL950G comes with an MSRP of $1999.99. At $500 USD, the LG 27GL850 looks like a really attractive gaming monitor.
