At IFA 2019, Europeans will get their first look at LG Electronics' (LG) expanded lineup of UltraGear 1 millisecond IPS NVIDIA G-SYNC gaming monitors designed specifically with serious gamers in mind. The latest addition to LG's industry-leading lineup of ultra-fast IPS gaming displays will be unveiled for the first time in Berlin from September 6-11 followed by commercial availability in the fourth quarter in key markets of Europe and North America.

All LG UltraGear monitors are fine-tuned to deliver an exhilarating gaming experience with their incredible picture quality now matched by astonishing response times. The newest UltraGear 1ms IPS Gray-to-Gray (GTG) monitor (model 27GN750) boasts the fastest refresh rate (240Hz) in the lineup, delivering the speed essential for victory in today's fast-paced games.






This 27-inch monitor impresses with the excellent picture quality LG's advanced IPS displays are well known for, producing lifelike Full HD images with rich, natural colors and consistent contrast across a wide viewing angle. With HDR10 support and smooth visuals free from tearing or stuttering thanks to NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible* and Adaptive-Sync, this monitor delivers a great balance of performance and price for serious gamers.

LG's 27GN750 monitor joins existing models 38GL950G and 27GL850 which both employ Nano IPS technology to deliver accurate color reproduction and a wide color gamut that covers 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. With flicker-free, high-resolution images and an ultra-fast response time with a refresh rate of 144Hz (overclockable to 175Hz in model 38GL950G), the UltraGear Nano IPS monitors provide the performance and features that let gamers live the action. Model 27GL850 is NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and supports HDR10 while model 38GL950G supports NVIDIA G-SYNC processors and VESA DisplayHDR 400 and also comes NVIDIA-certified.

All three UltraGear monitors include gaming-specific options such as Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer and Crosshair, the latter designed to enhance accuracy in FPS games.

From September 6-11, visitors to LG's IFA booth in Hall 18 at Messe Berlin can see for themselves what makes LG's lightning-fast monitors a must-have for serious gamers.

Literally just told the wife to order the 27gl850... now i’m gonna have to wait to see how these perform. Looks like it’s just one new model at least, the 750. Looks like the new model is just 1080p so i’m still good.

Gee wonder where all the Freesync monitors went? Oh they just renamed them to G-sync compatible. It's kinda pitiful (for AMD) really.

Notice whats not included, no resolution stated and then there is this little snippet:

"...producing lifelike Full HD images with rich, natural colors..."

If the text is to be read correctly 27GN750 is a 1080p monitor NOT 1440p so don't throw out your PG279Q just yet.

AMD own fault, they should have patented the tech and then licensed it to everyone absolutely free under one condition, that it had to be called FreeSync.

Instead they gave it away to VESA just so nVidia could work up a "G-Sync compatible" scheme to rip it off.

"G-Sync compatible" is nothing more than FreeSync with an extra high price tag.

Huang Jensen new slogan, PAY MORE FOR LESS with"G-Sync compatible" stamped on the box.

It is LG's product, not nVidai's that we are discussing.
Misleading name on it will reduce the number of potential customers.

In this case it might be yet another sneaky requirement by greedy green, for wording to be used when it is claimed to be "g sync certified".

Just yet another reminder that response time is not input latency. Monitor companies love to talk about response time. It is just the time it takes for a pixel to physically change color, so it reduces ghosting and blurring. It has limited impact on the actual time it takes from receipt of the signal to display of the signal.

This isn't true, as someone who recently bought a FreeSync LG monitor. And your 980 Ti doesn't support G-Sync?

Not only that, I have bought a recent LG G-Sync monitor (native G-Sync - 32GK650G).

GPUs all the way back to Kepler support G-Sync, but only had DP1.2. VESA Adaptive Sync (Freesync, basically) needs DP1.2a (specifically, the amended version from May 2014, not the shipping version from May 2012) - the version that added Adaptive Sync support. I don't really know what DP1.2a initially added, since I cannot find any public information on it, outside of the later addition of Adaptive Sync.

Hmm ealier specs said 1440p. 1080p would be a dealbreaker for sure.

G-sync is compatible with Kepler GPUs to current ones? Even if your 980Ti isnt supported with G-sync, you can still use the monitor and get the 144hz.

I have a true G-Sync LG from before G-Sync compatible was a thing. Did they all dry up after that?

They still have native G-sync modules in some of their current models.
