LG has introduced two GK gaming series monitors at IFA 2017: the 32-inch GK850G and 27-inch GK750F.
First up, the 32GK850G is a QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) monitor with 350 nits brightness. It supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync tech to reduce stutterings and screen tearings during fast gameplay, and features a 144Hz panel that’s overclockable to 165Hz. Other gaming features include Black Stabilizer for enhanced contrast during dark scenes, and Dynamic Action Sync that minimizes input lag.
The 32-inch monitor also has something called Sphere Lighting, which basically puts LEDs behind the monitor to create a soft ambience lighting. LG also touts a one-click stand that can be set up without the use of any screws or tools.
On the other hand, the smaller 27GK750F has a faster 240Hz panel, and features LG’s 1ms Motion Blur Reduction tech. Instead of G-Sync, this gaming monitor supports AMD’s FreeSync tech for low-latency gameplay. Like the 32GK850G, it features Black Stabilizer, Dynamic Action Sync, and Crosshair (which places a target in the center of the monitor in order to enhance accuracy in FPS games).
If you prefer an ultra-wide monitor, LG is also showcasing the 34UC89G. First introduced in June, this US$999 34-inch gaming monitor features a 2,560 x 1,080-pixel panel (21:9 aspect ratio), a 144Hz refresh rate (overclockable to 166Hz), and support for NVIDIA G-Sync. It’s the successor to the current AMD FreeSync-capable 34UC79G.
