LG UltraGear 32GQ950: More details provided about 160 Hz and 1,000 nit gaming monitor ahead of release later this month
LG has provided more details about the UltraGear 32GQ950, a 31.5-inch gaming monitor that we last heard about in January. Incidentally, LG has highlighted the UltraGear 32GQ950 alongside the UltraGear 48GQ900 and the UltraGear 32GQ850, discussed separately. As their names suggest, the UltraGear 32GQ950 slots in between the new UltraGear trio, albeit with a higher refresh rate than the UltraGear 48GQ900.
Specifically, the UltraGear 32GQ950 has a Nano IPS panel with an ATW Polarizer that outputs at 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) in a 16:9 aspect ratio. According to LG, the UltraGear 32GQ950 covers 98% of the DCI-P3 colour space and is VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified. While LG does not mention this in its press release, DisplayHDR 1000 certification means that the UltraGear 32GQ950 offers 1,000 nits of peak brightness and 10-bit image processing.
Additionally, LG claims that the UltraGear 32GQ950 has 1 ms GtG response times and a 144 Hz refresh rate that is overclockable to 160 Hz. Unsurprisingly, LG has included AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility to minimise image tearing. Unfortunately, LG has not announced pricing yet, although it states that the UltraGear 32GQ950 will be available before the end of the month in Japan. So far, LG has only confirmed that there will be releases in Asia, Europe and North America at some stage. For reference, the UltraGear 32GQ950 will come with the following ports, albeit without speakers:
- 1x DisplayPort
- 2x HDMI
- 1x USB 3.0 Type-A upstream
- 2x USB 3.0 Type-A downstream
