Many monitor manufacturers are adapting to the HDMI 2.1 technology. Acer announced its Nitro XV282K KV last week with the same technology. LG has also entered the race by announcing LG27GP950. The monitor is an upgraded version of LG2727GN950 but features HDMI 2.1 support.
The LG27GP950 features a 4K resolution and a refresh rate of up to 160Hz when overclocked. The monitor is based on a Nano IPS panel. It also features a Vesa DisplayHDR 600 support. The monitor’s HDMI 2.1 support offers some new features like Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Quick Frame Transport (QFT), and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM).
The monitor also features a 1 ms GtG (gray to gray) response time. It also features an adjustable stand that is capable of tilting, changing height, and pivot. Some of the features which are expected are NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support along with a 4-Side Virtually Borderless Display. It is also expected that this monitor will feature a 16:9 screen ratio and 27-inch display size.
The LG27GP950 pricing is expected to be announced next week, which will be the same as its predecessor ($799.99) or higher.
