LG has unveiled the UltraGear 32GQ950, a 32-inch gaming monitor with a 160 Hz refresh rate. The 4K monitor supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) via HDMI 2.1 and is VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, among other features.

LG has presented a new gaming monitor and one that it advertises with the UltraGear 17G90Q gaming laptop. The UltraGear 32GQ950, as its name suggests, is a 32-inch monitor. LG has not revealed masses of information about the monitor yet, but a teaser page offers a few details.

According to LG, the UltraGear 32GQ950 has a Nano IPS panel with ATW (Advanced True White) Polarizer technology that should improve off-axis viewing angles. In effect, an ATW Polarizer should reduce the IPS glow effect, albeit while causing colouration artefacts from some angles. Additionally, LG states that the monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, the meaning of which DisplayHDR has clarified in a blog post.

Moreover, LG claims that the UltraGear 32GQ950 offers 1 ms response times (GtG) and a 4K native resolution. Also, the panel runs natively at 144 Hz and is overclockable to 160 Hz when needed. LG has included HDMI 2.1 ports too for 120 Hz and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support with current-generation games consoles.

Unfortunately, LG has not revealed when the UltraGear 32GQ950 will be available, or where. Similarly, it is unclear how much the gaming monitor will cost.
