LG reveals the world's first 1ms IPS gaming displays

When it comes to high-end gaming monitors, PC users have a choice. Do I opt for the image quality and wide viewing angles of IPS panels, or the crisp, responsive feel of TN? LG's response to this question is this; Why not have both? 

At E3 2019, LG has revealed the world's first 1ms IPS Gaming Monitors, UltraGear series displays which offer the stunning image quality of their Nano IPS panels while offers ultra-fast response times with 144Hz refresh rates. With LG, gamers can get the whole package. 

LG's new 1ms IPS panels come in two flavours, with their 38-inch 3840x1600 38GL950G and their 27-inch 2560x1440 27GL850, the 38-inch model is a G-Sync screen while the 27-inch model is G-Sync Compatible (Adaptive-Sync). The 38-inch model also supports LG's Sphere Lighting 2.0 technology.

If you don't believe LG's 1ms response time claims, the company has sought out external validation, with UL, a renowned standards body, certifying these displays as offering 1ms Gray-to-Grey response times. On top of that, LG has also made multi-monitor setups practically seamless with a 3-side borderless design. 

Both monitors support a 10-bit colour depth and offer 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space and 135% of the sRGB colour space. The 27-inch Ultragear will support HDR10 (it apparently didn't meet any VESA DisplayHDR specification) and a 144Hz refresh rate, with the 38-inch model supporting the DisplayHDR 400 specification and a 144Hz refresh rate, which can be boosted to 175Hz through overclocking.

Below are the full specifications of LG's two Nano IPS 1ms monitors, with LG stating that their 27-inch 27GL850 will become available for pre-order on July 1st in the US and at selected European retailers in Q3. 

Both models are currently available to view at the NVIDIA exhibit space at E3 2019. E3, the world’s largest annual gaming expo takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Centre between June 11th and 13th.

Finally an HDR, GSync, IPS display with high refresh rate and at 1440p. It's been so annoying seeing all the top tier HDR Gsync displays released at 4kQuote

To be fair, the levels of HDR that these screens offer aren't that impressive.Quote

Yeah I guess until we have a QLED(or equivalent), OLED or MicroLED monitor it's always going to be a little disappointing.

I guess my main point is that nearly all the state of the art monitors coming out now are 4k. 1440p seems to get neglected but imo is still the sweet spot even for those on v high performance systems.Quote

Wish it was a VA panel. They are better than IPS. Better contrast which is critical to HDR.
Personally I find VA to be better in my viewing experience.Quote

Getting people into 4K is a sure way to make them spend $1000+ on new graphics cards also (or a few of them).



Once you go 100+ FPS you don't go back, so it's all 1440p for me also.


I could only be tempted by a to buy a new monitor if a OLED version came out. Playing mostly in the dark, I'd really REALLY love for black to be black and not grayish.Quote
