LG has revealed its latest gaming monitors and they are ground breaking. The company claims that its new UltraGear Nano IPS Nvidia G-Sync monitors are the first gaming monitors to achieve a 1ms response rate.

LG has taken the wraps off its latest gaming monitors and they are likely to find their way to the top of many a gamer's list, particularly those with recent Nvidia GPUs. Not only do the new UltraGear Nano IPS gaming monitors support Nvidia's G-Sync tech, they are also the first in the world to sport a 1ms response rate. Couple that with refresh rates of 144Hz and you have a pair of monitors that are eye catching in more than one way.

The bigger of the two models is the 38-inch 38GK950G that sports a 1440p WQHD resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels with 450 nits of brightness. As such, it qualifies for and HDR 400 rating while it also supports 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 135 percent of the sRGB color gamut. It also has a special trick up its sleeve being with its refresh rate of 144Hz overclockable to 175Hz.

The smaller 27-inch 27GL850 features a more typical QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. It is still HDR10 rated, but brightness is typically ramped at 350 nits. It supports the same color gamut as its larger stablemate which means that it can show over 1 billion colors. Interestingly, it picks up two HDMI ports, whereas the larger model only scores one.

The new LG UltraGear Nano IPS monitors are set to roll out in July in the US with pre-orders available from July 1. Select European markets will be able to purchase the monitor in the third quarter of this year.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
