LG 38GL950G and 27GL850: the first IPS monitors with a response time of 1 ms
The company announced today the new monitors LG UltraGear with panels Nano IPS and which also include G-Sync. These monitors have a response time of 1ms GtG (Gray to gray), which had not been possible to date. The best current IPS monitors had at most 4ms GtG, which some manufacturers have camouflaged in MRPT of 1 ms.
Thus, there were two screens announced by LG. The first is 38GL950G, an ultra-wide 37.5-inch 21: 9 monitor with a resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels and a maximum brightness of 450 nits. The panel has a certification DisplayHDR400, with a native 10-bit panel and reading the 98% of the space DCI-P3 and 135% of sRGB. In addition, the panel has native 144 Hz, overclockable up to 175 Hz. In terms of connectivity, we have an HDMI port, a DisplayPort port and two USB 3.0 ports, in addition to the Sphere Lighting 2.0 and NVIDIA G-Sync backlighting.
The second monitor is the 27GL850, a 27-inch monitor with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and 144 Hz the refresh rate. It has a native 10-bit panel, but only 350 nits, so it's not receiving DisplayHDR certification, but supports HDR10. It also reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 space and 135% of the sRGB resolution. The monitor is compatible with NVIDIA G-Sync. It therefore has a variable refresh rate, but does not carry the NVIDIA G-Sync chip. In terms of connectivity, it has two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort port and two USB 3.0 ports.
Observers will be able to book on July 1 in the US and arrive in European markets in the third quarter of this year. The price has not been revealed.
TN displays reproduce colors less well and are not uniform
The difference between 1ms and 4ms has begun to fade recently due to the fact that game monitors have higher refresh rates, such as 144Hz, which when more frames are available are displayed per second, do not give as much blur when moving. . However, thanks to these new LG monitors, we have the best of both worlds: superb and consistent color reproduction, with excellent viewing angles of IPS and the speed of TN monitors. LG is one of the most advanced manufacturers of the monitors market and it would not be surprising that we start to see more and more monitors to be able to use these panels, whether LG or D & # 39; other competitors such as AUO.
This could imply the end of the TN panels in some ranges, since 144 Hz and 1 ms is what we are looking for the most at the moment when buying a PC screen. The best game monitors are currently reaching 240 Hz and even 0.5 ms, so IPS need to improve even further in order to finish dethroning TNs in all segments. If you are one of those who need accurate color reproduction (for example, for photo editing) and also enjoy playing, these new monitors are perfect for that.
