Gaming monitor technology has been rapidly increasing thanks to advancements from top companies like Samsung, Dell and Acer. According to Emergen Research, the market is expected to reach a total estimated value of $15.97 billion by 2032 thanks to emerging innovations and the growing popularity of e-sports.
Another company that’s been at the forefront of the market is LG, whose lineup of UltraGear monitors has become popular among both professional and casual gamers. They have also been recognized by industry leaders, with the 45GR95QE model being an Innovation Award honoree at this year’s CES. The 45-inch curved OLED display features a 21:9 aspect ratio, a WQHD 3,440 by 1,440 resolution and is the first 45-inch gaming monitor with an 800R curvature.
The electronics company has also just announced the release of its 49GR85DC-B model, a powerful 49-inch curved display with class-leading HDR capabilities.
The new monitor has a three-sided, nearly borderless display with LED Hexagon backlighting. With a 240Hz dual QHD 1000R curved display, the monitor boasts an ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio, 5120 by 1440 resolution and a seriously fast 1 millisecond gray-to-gray response rate. This provides gamers with an impressively smooth experience. Others features include dynamic action sync, black stabilizer, a frames-per-second counter and a crosshair.
The display’s on-screen control provides the ability to seamlessly switch between gaming, watching or streaming from multiple inputs. The feature supports both picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture, giving users the ability to configure the monitor to suit their individual needs. The monitor also has a variety of enhanced graphical user interfaces, including gamer and frames-per-second. Additionally, the 49GR85DC-B model has a built-in DTS HeadphoneX jack for accurate spatial localization.
LG’s new 49-inch UltraGear monitor costs $1,299 and is now available for preorder through April 2 on the company’s website. The electronics company also currently has a special offer going, which includes a free UltraGear Gaming Pad – a $200 mouse mat with USB capabilities and RGB lighting. Shipping for the monitor is expected to begin early next month.
