LG teases its UltraGear OLED gaming monitors ahead of CES 2024

CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is always an exciting time to see new tech products that will make their way to retail for the rest of the year, and CES 2024 is just as intense as before — if the pre-event product announcements are anything to go by.

Joining the pre-event festivities is LG’s newly announced UltraGear OLED gaming monitors, featuring a 32-inch 4K panel with 240Hz refresh rate (32GS95UE) and two new ultra-wide curved screens, one at 39-inch (39GS95QE) and the other at 34-inch (34GS95QE).

A dual-hertz gaming monitor

Milking your gaming monitor’s worth partly depends on the types of video games you enjoy. For instance, you might get more immersive RPG playthroughs if you max out its resolution and graphic quality, whereas FPS or battle royale players may benefit more from higher refresh rates (Hz) and lower response times. 

The downside? That sounds like buying two gaming monitors with different spec priorities if you play all of the above. That, however, was circumvented by LG with the 32GS95UE.

The 32-inch gaming monitor comes with a new Dual-Hz feature. Users can flit between 4K at 240Hz or fix it at Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and get 480Hz refresh rates instead. You can instantly apply either setting with one click on a hotkey (keyboard or joystick). 

Effectively, you can choose to have higher resolution to enjoy visually stunning games, or higher refresh rates for games where winning hinges on split-second reflexes.

The 32GS95UE offers a 0.03ms grey-to-grey response time, which LG claimed can “eliminate motion blur, boost clarity and deliver dynamic gameplay”. All these perks are combined with LG’s self-lit OLED panels, which have historically delivered excellent colour and contrast.

Other perks include its 4-side “virtually borderless” design, Pixel Sound technology front-facing audio system with two woofers, and DTS Virtual:X support. 

Based on its spec sheet, the 32GS95UE supports G-Sync, has two HDMI 2.1 ports, and one DisplayPort 1.4.

Big, bold curves

Joining the previous monitor are two curved gaming monitors: a 34-inch 34GS95QE and its larger sibling, the 39-inch 39GS95QE.

The 39-inch OLED display with an 800R curve features a 21:9 aspect ratio packed with pixels at 3,440 x 1,440 (Quad HD resolution). Other perks include a 4-side borderless design, 240Hz refresh rate, 0.03ms GtG response time, and LG’s proprietary Anti-Glare and Low Reflection coating.

The 34-inch offers the same perks, but with a smaller display instead.

Both monitors have a space-saving “L” stand that has a smaller-than-usual footprint (compared to the 2023’s “V” stand), on top of ergonomic aids like tilt, height, pivot, and swivel adjustability.

These monitors also share the same ports and graphic card support as their dual-Hz sibling, namely G-Sync, the two HDMI 2.1 ports, and one DisplayPort 1.4.

Other LG monitors

Joining the Dual-Hz and ultra-wide curved UltraGear gaming monitors are three more alternatives — two 45-inch monitors (45GS95QE and 45GS96QB) and a 27-incher (27GS95QE).

All three are VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400-certified, with the 27-inch variant being a flat alternative to its two curved siblings. They boast 0.03ms GtG response times, with a 240Hz refresh rate. The main difference between both 45-inch displays is one comes with speakers built-in (QB) while the other does not (QE).

They also support FreeSync Premium Pro, G-Sync, two HDMI 2.1 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4, and a USB-C port with 65W charging.

Since these monitors preview LG’s CES 2024 appearance, there are currently no pricing or availability details. 

CES 2024 happens between 9 and 12 January 2024 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Winchester, Nevada, U.S.).
