LG just released a new 34-inch 21:9 curved UltraWide gaming monitor (model 34UC89G) with NVIDIA G-Sync display technology and a 144Hz (overclock 166Hz) refresh rate. The $1000 monitor designed for gamers uses an IPS panel with a widened color gamut that delivers over 99% of the sRGB color space by up to 99 percent, even at wide viewing angles, and shorter input lag.
“LG took every consideration in designing this display for one purpose and one purpose only, and that was to create the ultimate gaming monitor,” said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA.
The 2560×1080 monitor comes equipped with unique display modes – Black Stabilizer, Dynamic Action Sync, and Crosshair — that help users get the most out of tactical gameplay. When playing FPS or RTS games, the Black Stabilizer mode enhances visibility, even in dark scenes. This allows the monitor to automatically sense the darkest areas and make them brighter, enabling players to easily find their enemies no matter where they hide. The Dynamic Action Sync mode allows users to instantly defeat their opponents by minimizing input lag while the Crosshair places a target point in the center of the monitor in order to enhance accuracy in FPS games.
In addition, NVIDIA’s G-Sync gaming display technology dynamically matches the 144Hz (overclockable to 166Hz) refresh rate of the display to the frame rate output of the GPU, eliminating tearing, minimizing stutter and input lag, and delivering incredibly smooth gaming graphics at all times. However, G-SYNC features require an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST GPU or higher for desktop PCs or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M, GTX 970M or GTX 965M for notebooks.
