LG definitely has to be your go-to if you are someone who is looking for large displays ideal for gamers. This sector of the market has been blooming for a long time now and LG has recently introduced its new entries to become part of this segment. These three display units are from the company’s 2022 UltraGear lineup. There are options ranging from 31.5 to 47.5 inches and we are quite hopeful that these will become some of the best gaming displays this year.
Let’s start with the monitor which falls lowest on the spectrum – the UltraGear 32GQ850. This one comes with a 2560 x 1440 QHD Nano IPS panel. This new IPS technology by LG makes use of nanoparticles that can be intermingled with the LED backlight of the monitor. This integration of the nanoparticles is responsible to some extent for 98 percent of the total coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
If you are looking for the latest and greatest, then say hello to the company’s Advanced True Wide (ATW) Polarizer technology which not only delivers black shades in a darker tone but also enhances the reproduction of color. The main task of the panel makers is to ensure that the black levels are increased and they are looking for ways to increase the contrast on the IPS panels. The ATW Polarizer appears to be the newest effort from LG after the IPS Black technology. However, so far we haven’t heard of any specs regarding the brightness or the contrast ratio for these new monitors.
Let’s move on to the middle of the spectrum on which we have the UltraGear 32GQ950. This one also features a 31.5 inches panel but this comes with a native 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160. As far as the DCI-P3 color space is concerned, it is able to bring up a coverage of 98 percent. All this can be attributed to the ATW Polarizer. What’s surprising is the refresh rate which has gone back to the native 144Hz, however, the refresh rate can be overclocked to 160Hz if you want some edge for competitive gaming.
The UltraGear 48GQ900 is the high-end of all the monitors in this range. It has a display of 47.5 inches and comes with a 4K resolution. The surprising bit here is how this monitor has stuck with the tried and tested OLED panel rather than the new technologies coming out this year. The OLED panel gives the advantage of a refresh rate which goes to 120 Hz. Unfortunately, there is no word about pricing and availability yet.
