The monitor is a fundamental piece to invest in when assembling a high-performance gaming equipment. The screen is where we are going to spend long hours playing and a good team can help us have a better result. Although there are many things to look for when buying a monitor, if you are a video game lover you will know that the response time, the refresh rate and the compatibility with G-Sync from Nvidia are key. All these features, and much more, is what the new LG UltraGear Gaming Monitor 27GN950 offers.
We talk about First 4K UHD IPS monitor with 1ms response time of the world. It has a Nano IPS panel, capable of combining the image quality of IPS technology with maximum response speed. In addition, it is a monitor that is compatible with HDR images thanks to the VESA DisplayHDR600 certification. In short, if you are interested in professional gaming or are always looking for products that offer great performance, you should take a look at the new LG 27GN950. Let’s get to know better what the new LG monitor offers us.

The first 1 ms 4K IPS gaming monitor
The LG 27GN950 is a monitor that seeks to offer maximum performance when it comes to playing, but also when it comes to creating. Combine the best of a TN panel and the best of an IPS panelIt offers a native response speed of 1 ms without sacrificing color and viewing angles.
Why is response time so important? Response time is the time it takes for the pixel to change color (from white to black, exaggerated). High times generate blur around moving objects. These times are expressed as Grey-to-Gray, based on the industry standard imposed by VESA taking 10% to 90% of all points on the pixel curve.
Historically, the fastest panels have been TN panels. However, this technology has very important limitations in color reproduction and viewing angles. LG has achieved a response time of 1 ms, generally reserved for TN honeycombs, using Nano IPS technology. This technology enables much more accurate color reproduction and offers 178-degree viewing ranges.
But the response time and IPS technology are not the only interesting features of this new monitor. The LG 27GN950 features 4K UHD resolution on a 27-inch panel with 16: 9, 10-bit format and a frequency of 144 Hz. All this with compatibility with the reproduction of HDR images thanks to the certification VESA DisplayHDR600.
To all the aforementioned we must add the compatibility with the G-Sync technology. This eliminates interrupted frames and minimizes image fragmentation, thus achieving an even smoother gaming experience.
And if you do not have quiet Nvidia graphics, the LG 27GN950 also has the Adaptive-Sync technology (FreeSync). Thanks to this technology, players who have opted for an AMD graphics will have a more fluid and perfect movement in high-resolution and fast-paced games.
Price and availability
Definitely, LG’s new 4K gaming monitor offers the best IPS technology with an incredibly fast response time. It also offers a refresh rate of 144 Hz, is compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and has a very attractive design.
The new LG 27GN950 gaming monitor will hit the market next August with an official price of 1,190 euros.
