LG’s upcoming 32UN650-W 4K FreeSync monitor could be a good pick for creatives and gamers alike
LG recently unveiled the 32UN650-W, a 32-in HDR10 monitor with support for AMD FreeSync. LG claims that the monitor's 4K IPS panel sports 95 percent DCI-P3 coverage and color calibration, making the monitor a good fit for creatives.
Interestingly, and unlike other creative-oriented monitors, the 32UN650-W also appears to feature a number of gamer-friendly addons. FreeSync makes for a stutter and tear-free experience, critical at 4K since even the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti struggles to reliably deliver a 4K/60 experience.
HDR10 support on a 10-bit panel promises a great all-round media consumption experience and better immersion in HDR-enabled PC titles. This is a 60Hz panel, but since it features DisplayPort 1.4 connectivity, there's enough bandwidth to try overclocking the panel to get a bit more mileage out of it. At 5ms, response times are good but not great.
LG has yet to offer pricing details for the 32UN650-W. However, we expect it to be priced closer to productivity and creative-oriented panels, so this might not be a good first pick for gamers.
