LG has announced a new line of monitors for display at the CES show in January. They stand out for their Nano IPS panel, resolution up to 5K and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
Samsung has in the abbreviation of Quantum LED (QLED) its key name for monitors marketing and LG uses Nano IPS for the same. However, the way to improve the accuracy is different. Samsung uses quantum dots to emit light more precisely, and LG uses nano-sized particles to absorb the excess light produced by the LED on the screen. As a result, the new Nano IPS are capable of displaying 98% of the color range of the DCI-P3 standard.
The most attractive model of the new range is the LG 34WK95U, with 34 inches diagonal with 21: 9 format and native resolution 5K (5120 x 2160 pixels). It supports high dynamic range (HDR600) and employs a Thunderbolt 3 interface that can offer 5K images at 60 Hz (or feed two 4K monitors).
The second model is the 32UK950, with 32 inches, 4K UHD resolution, Thunderbolt 3 connection, the HDR600 and the mentioned support for DCI-P3. The third of the announced will be the 34GK950G. Focused on games, it will have a 34-inch diagonal, QHD resolution, support for NVIDIA’s synchronization technology, G-Sync, and the Nano IPS panel used in the series.
No price or availability has been provided. They will be exhibited at the CES fair in Las Vegas that is celebrated the second week of the year.
The three new computer monitors from LG comes with DisplayHDR 600 certification for release. They provide the maximum image brightness of 600 nits and still retain the ability to output content with an extended dynamic range.
Model LG 34WK95U is a 34-inch monitor with an ultra-wide 5K display; it supports a resolution of 5120 × 2160 pixels. This device is intended for users who are editing video or require a large workspace, but do not want to install a configuration from multiple monitors. In the novelty, three Thunderbolt 3 ports are implemented, allowing simultaneous transfer of data, energy, and video in a resolution of 5K with a frequency of 60 Hz using a single cable.
The 32-inch version of the LG 32UK950 supports a slightly smaller resolution – 4K. But in this case, the technology Nano IPS, which involves the use of microscopic elements in the LED backlight to absorb light by excessively long waves. The device provides a more accurate and deep color transfer and is able to reproduce 98% of the color space DCI-P3. This model contains interfaces Thunderbolt 3 and supports 4K daisy chaining, which allows you to connect an additional monitor to it.
The LG 34GK950G is a game monitor. The device contains a 34-inch panel based on Nano IPS technology and supports NVIDIA G-Sync technology. Information on the price and timing of the launch of new LG monitors has not yet been reported.
