LG reveals the world's first 1ms IPS monitors

LG UltraGear Nano IPS gaming monitor is the first 1ms IPS display

The new 38GL950G measures 38 inches across and checks off almost every box when it comes to buzz-worthy features expected today of gaming monitors. As PC gaming continues to grow, LG has taken to the show to update its UltraGear line of monitors, with the company touting its newest editions as the world's first one-millisecond response time IPS displays. As gaming monitors, both new models feature gamer-specific settings such as; Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair which can be especially useful in FPS games. "Both of these Nano IPS monitors feature the 144Hz refresh rate (only the 38" can be overclocked) and DCI-P3 98-percent wide color gamut.

The LG UltraGear will be available in two models: the 38-inch 38GL950G and the 27-inch 27GL850. On the topic of refresh rates this is a G-Sync certified monitor with the necessary built-in Nvidia hardware.

A number of features vary based on model, however, including resolution - the larger model has a 450 nits WQHD 3840 x 1600 resolution, whereas the smaller model has a 350 nits QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution.

This combination should make the UltraGear an incredibly fast and responsive gaming monitor - and it's got a few more tricks up its sleeve which make us eager to get our hands on it for a full review. The 27-inch UltraGear offers HDR 10 and the 38-inch model offers VESA DisplayHDR 400.

Both monitors go on sale in July in the USA, with pre-orders for the 27GL850 opening July 1, while Europe will be getting the monitors some time in the third quarter of this year. TO start with this is an Nvidia G-Sync compatible display so I think it is "just" an Adaptive Sync monitor that has passed Nvidia's tests. Both monitors are scheduled to roll out next month.

Both the LG 38GL950G and 27GL850 are now being demonstrated at the Nvidia media space at E3 2019.
