LG’s Curved Ultrawide Monitor is delectable and all, but gamers need something that’s properly equipped to handle fast-moving, high-detail images at full-screen sizes. And while it’s not quite as breathtaking as looking at a curved display, the LG 21:9 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor is definitely more suited to a hardcore gamer’s pursuit of mouse-and-keyboard supremacy.
Specially-developed for graphics-intensive gaming, the 34-inch display comes with AMD’s FreeSync technology, which eliminates the tearing and stuttering that can occur when your monitor and graphics card go out of sync. That way, you can enjoy your games in a ridiculous 21:9 aspect ratio in all its full glory, without being subjected to the potential pitfalls such a demanding setup can put on the gaming rig. LG claims the use of the monitor tech will guarantee “the smoothest and most seamless gaming experience” for PC displays in the category.
With its exceptional field of view, the LG 21:9 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor’s IPS panel allows users a unique peek at game elements that players will otherwise miss on conventional aspect ratios, giving them an upper hand when playing games like Battlefield 4 online. Notable features include the ability to output 99 percent of sRGB colors, a Black Stabilizer (for illuminating dark scenes to make hidden enemies just a little easier to spot), Dynamic Action Sync (for minimizing input lag), and a 178-degree viewing angle.
No word on pricing, although it will probably come in a bit under the $1,200 price tag of their Curved Ultrawide model. LG is debuting the 21:9 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor at CES next week.
