IPS monitors with response times as low as 1ms were unheard of until now. During the E3 week, LG announced its new lineup of IPS gaming monitors – UltraGear 27GL850 and UltraGear 38GL950G, with an impressive response time of 1ms.
LG showed off two new monitors under the “LG UltraGear Nano IPS gaming monitors” with screen sizes of 27-inch and 38-inch featuring resolutions of 2560 × 1440 (16:9) and 3840 × 1600 (21.5:9), respectively. Both the monitors have a native refresh rate of 144Hz and the 38-inch variant can even overclock up to 175Hz. LG used nano IPS technology in order to achieve this feat.
For connectivity, the smaller variant features 2x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, and a USB 3.0 (1 up, 2 down) port. The I/O is similar for the 38-inch variant except it has
sRGB: 135% colour gamut.
It is to note that the monitor’s 1ms refresh rate is measured for gray to gray. These new monitors will launch in Q3 of 2019 with pre-orders starting on 1st of July. The pricing for these monitors hasn’t been revealed yet but it is certain that they will be on the higher side.
