LG Electronics, in a bid to provide a more immersive gaming experience, has announced the launch of its new UltraGearTM gaming monitor lineup. The 2022 UltraGear gaming monitors have a new design, the latest display tech, plus a plethora of gaming and connectivity features.

The 32GQ950 has a 4K Nano IPS display with realistic color and Advanced True Wide (ATW) polarizer technology, while the 32GQ850 has a QHD Nano IPS display with ATW and a 240Hz refresh rate, overclocked to 260Hz. Notably, 48GQ900 is UltraGear's first OLED gaming monitor.

With a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, the UltraGear 32GQ950 is an impressive gaming machine. In a 4K first for LG, it features ATW Polarizer technology, enhancing the panel's ability to display vibrant, accurate colors and deep blacks from a broad array of viewing angles.

High peak brightness (1,000 nits) and DCI-P3 color coverage (98 percent) are also provided by LG's latest 32" monitor.

"The latest LG UltraGear gaming monitors apply cutting-edge technology and design to raise the bar for the gaming display category. Ideal for both PC and console gaming, our new monitors offer features and capabilities that take the entire gaming experience to the next level. We will continue to solidify the UltraGear brand’s strong reputation with innovative products that put the needs of gamers first."

Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company


The LG UltraGear 48GQ900 OLED gaming monitor arrives in 2022. The self-emissive, 48-inch 4K display has a 120Hz (O/C 138Hz) refresh rate, 0.1ms response time, impeccable color accuracy, and a borderless design. The new model features LG's anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating, which reduces visual distractions so users can focus on the gameplay.

The one catch with these new displays is availability, if you live in Japan you're in luck because it will be available starting this month. North America, Europe, and Asia will follow shortly thereafter.
