LG Electronics (LG) today announced plans to introduce the world's first 21:9 "UltraWide" gaming monitor compatible with AMD FreeSync technology for fluid motion during fast gameplay.

The new monitor headlines LG's expanded lineup being unveiled next week at the 2015 International CES and further solidifies the company's leadership in the growing 21:9 segment, which caters to the digital imaging, business professional and gaming markets. Based on IDC's Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, LG is the world sales leader in this monitor segment over the last seven fiscal quarters (as of the third quarter of 2014) with a market share of 77.3 percent of the world's 21:9 monitors.



21:9 UltraWide Gaming Monitor with AMD FreeSync Technology
LG's UltraWide Gaming Monitor (34UM67) is the company's first 21:9 monitor specifically developed for graphics-intensive gaming. AMD's FreeSync technology eliminates the screen tearing that occurs when the monitor and graphics card are out of sync. Furthermore FreeSync technology guarantees the smoothest and most seamless gaming experience, generating fluid motion without any loss of frame rate.

"AMD FreeSync technology is an innovative monitor technology, based on free and open industry standards, to eliminate the tearing and stuttering that has plagued PC gaming for 30 years," said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president of ISV/IHV Partner Group, AMD. "We are pleased that LG Electronics stands with us with truly exciting AMD FreeSync-ready displays like the LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor."

The 34UM67 also has an exceptional UltraWide field of view (FOV), allowing gamers to gain the upper hand by revealing hidden spaces that were invisible on regular 16:9 monitors. The monitor's Black Stabilizer illuminates dark scenes and helps to clearly define the deep black areas where objects and enemies could be hidden. The Dynamic Action Sync mode minimizes input lag, enhancing users' real time gaming experience. Many popular games such as Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and ArcheAge currently support 21:9 resolution with more games expected to support this resolution in the future.

World's First Curved 34-inch 21:9 Monitor with Extensive Screen
LG's curved 34-inch UltraWide monitor (34UC97) in Quad HD resolution (3440 x 1440) makes maximum use of its wide screen real estate. It allows creative professionals, such as graphic designers or photographers, to look at more images as thumbnails and media creators to see longer video image sequences or graphical representations of sound. The monitor is compatible with Thunderbolt 2, which allows for Mac users to take advantage of its high-speed bulk data transfers. And for gamers, the curved display provides a more immersive experience.

The monitor's 178-degree viewing angle of the In-Plane Switching (IPS) display recreates colors across over 99 percent of the sRGB color space, so there is no color distortion at any angle. The monitor's color accuracy, viewing angle and sRGB color space have been certified by TUV Rheinland and Intertek and also validated by UL.

21:9 Curved UltraWide Multi-Display for Enhanced Productivity
The 21:9 Curved UltraWide Multi-Display (34UC87M) provides various multiple-display set-up options, raising productivity levels for financial professionals, such as stock traders who need to keep track of large amounts of data simultaneously. This monitor can be used as a trading workstation or a large dashboard to display charts, quotes or pending orders on each screen, allowing the user to explore a wider range of opportunities.

Digital Cinema 4K Monitor for Superb Color Management
LG will also showcase the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (Model 31MU97) featuring 4K resolution (4096 x 2160), with more pixels than standard Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160). The 31MU97 shows 4K content as it was meant to be seen with native resolution and it is also well suited for handling Digital Intermediate (DI) processes. With over 99.5 percent Adobe Color Space, it is the ideal monitor for accurate color management.

"LG's premium 21:9 UltraWide monitors are designed with the unique needs of consumers in mind," said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "The industry has come a long way from the days when one display design was thought to be suitable for all users. With the amount of time we spend in front of monitors, these products are no longer one size fits all."

Visitors are encouraged to stop by LG's booth at CES 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from Jan. 6-9 to see LG's innovative monitor lineup in person.

They can be available at showcase time to months later. LG will probably give a time frame at the presentation next week.

LG make tonnes of panels for different manufacturers. My Asus screen has an LG panel and I'm happy with it.
I'm sure LG will be selling the panels to 3rd parties.

...and detailed reviews if that. I have no doubt that the display looks nice, but how many games and video do you think look half decent at 21:9 when they're intended for 4:3, 16:10, and 16:9? Playing video thats 16:9 on 21:9 will have a lot of wasted space on the sides as well. So I'm not sure about the content side of things, I'm sure it's a nice looking display though. I could be convinced that 21:9 is a good move if things start supporting it.

movies have been 21:9 format for a while now man, also tons of games support 21:9.
You have to go quite a bit back to get to the 4:3 only stuff and yeah I guess there are some concessions to be made when you choose to play older games like that

To me, it's a weird resolution and not all movies are in 21:9, in fact most Blu-Rays I've seen are 16:9. If I use Eyefinity, it's not every game (even relatively modern ones,) that will support 5760x1080. So you might be right, but I base my statement on my experience with an "odd" resolution. The simple fact is, until more people start using that ratio, less effort will get put into it versus the common ones.

Won't it be odd gaming at that wide a resolution unless the game developers account for it?

Most current ultrawides seem to have 1yr parts & labour. I'd be more interested to see their dead pixel policy on a monitor of that size. Dell are the best in that regard, though it wouldn;t matter to me as I always buy in shop and can check before accepting.

LG already has 21:9 panels on the market, the 1080p versions of which can be bought from Korea for ~$300.

To all the ppl worried about ratio issues, some of the current higher end LG 21:9 support dual input so that it can act like 2 independent screens, that way the "wasted" space is more like the extended monitor in a dual monitor setup.

I like it, I personally want to see this thing tested because of the FreeSync more than anything personally!

Hot. Though with so many users in the house needing upgrades, I'll probably grab a 2560x1080 (cheap) and try out this ratio for a year.

Using the FreeSync name and "Gaming Monitor" seems a little unnecessary since one sort of is implying the other.

There will be a bunch of FreeSync monitors that have slightly different features. For example, Samsung will supposedly have a 4K FreeSync monitor coming down the pipe in the same timeframe which I believe keeps the same U28D590 name as its predecessor without FreeSync,...

Either way just make sure you have deep pockets when you go shopping for one,...

Won't it be odd gaming at that wide a resolution unless the game developers account for it?
That's what people said at the 16:9 inception lol.

But really, I think even though it'll be pretty immersive, large part of the screen will be useless to the actual gameplay.
