You've heard of IPS, but what about Nano IPS?

LG has revealed their latest UltraGear monitor, which hopes to wow users with its 1440p resolution, G-Sync support and Nano IPS screen. With a 27-inch screen size, the LG 27GL850G-B is designed to offer a 3-side "virtually borderless design" and refresh rates that are as high as 160Hz, albeit through the display's overclock mode.   

At stock, the monitor will offer a 144Hz refresh rate and full Nvidia G-Sync capabilities, alongside LG's Sphere Lighting 2.0 technology, which is expected to be detailed further at CES. 

LG's Nano IPS screens act as an alternative technology to Quantum Dot displays, utilising nanoparticles, which are applied to the display's backlight, to allow Nano IPS screens to support wider colour gamuts. This makes it likely that 27GL850G-B will support most of the DCI-P3 colour space, giving LG's screens a level of vibrancy that is not matched by traditional IPS monitors. 

With this announcement, LG has not made it clear whether or not their 27GL850G will support HDR, as LG's product page does not refer to HDR technology. LG's Nano IPS tech will support the wider colour gamuts that HDR screens benefit from, but it is unlikely to support higher contrast modes or offer a FALD backlight, otherwise, this monitor would be advertised as G-Sync HDR.

LG's 27GL850G will make its debut at CES 2019, where we expect to learn the display's full specifications, pricing and release date.

I dont like overclocking screens. Refresh has to be native for me to accept it. When you overclock, you can sometimes see scanlines in some games depending on the type. E.g. RPG where you have windows with text pop up to read quests. Its quite visible there.Quote

They've stuck a turntable platter to the back !

The boot remover could come in handy though. I often find it hard getting mine off, after a hard day.Quote

haha it looks like it has mesh in it.

I don't get this new trend in monitors. All of the nice stuff they waste money on is all on the back, what you don't see. That Alienware monitor I bought looked beautiful in the pics but sat in front of it you would never know lol. It just looks like a normal, bland, small monitor.Quote
