LG UltraGear 32GQ950P: Revised gaming monitor launches with 4K, 160 Hz and 31.5-inch panel
LG has quietly introduced a new version of the UltraGear 32GQ950, a 31.5-inch gaming monitor that debuted in early 2022. In its place arrives the UltraGear 32GQ950P, which will be familiar to anyone who has used an UltraGear 32GQ950. Based on LG's listings, the pair share almost identical specifications, as their names imply.
Hence, the UltraGear 32GQ950P has a 31.5-inch IPS panel with 10-bit colour depth, likely 8-bit and FRC, and an Advanced True White (ATW) polariser to minimise IPS glow and improve viewing angle stability. Additionally, the UltraGear 32GQ950P offers a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 1 ms response times (GtG), a 4K native resolution and a 144 Hz refresh rate that it can overclock to 160 Hz. Moreover, LG integrates the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm jack
- 1x DisplayPort 1.4
- 2x HDMI 2.1
- 1x USB 3.0 Type-B
- 2x USB 3.0 Type-A
The UltraGear 32GQ950P is also DisplayHDR 1000 certified, meaning that it peaks at 1,000 nits when viewing HDR content. Somehow, LG has improved energy efficiency between the UltraGear 32GQ950 and UltraGear 32GQ950P. Specifically, the latter should consume nearly 20% less power when viewing SDR content than the former (33 W/41 W). The UltraGear 32GQ950P is also rated as roughly 8% more efficient with HDR content active, although its 102 W power consumption ensures that it maintains a G energy efficiency class, the worst of EU's energy labelling
LG charges €1,199 for the UltraGear 32GQ950P in the Eurozone, €100 less than the UltraGear 32GQ950. However, retailers like Cyberport are offering the gaming monitor for €1,099, presumably as part of an introductory discount. Please see LG's website for more details.
