[CES 2023] LG unveils the world’s first 240Hz OLED gaming monitors


Giving us a sneak peak of some of what we can expect to see at CES 2023 in January, LG has unveiled the world’s first 240Hz OLED gaming monitors: the LG UltraGear 27″ OLED Gaming Monitor and the 45″ Curved OLED Gaming Monitor.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Both LG UltraGear OLED Gaming Monitors offer 240Hz refresh rates and 0.03ms (GTG) response time for fast, smooth, low-latency gaming. Vibrant graphics are ensured with 98.5% DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage, and the monitors support VRR, FreeSync Premium, VESA Adaptive Sync, and are NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible.

“Featuring our industry leading display technologies, these purpose-built monitors boast the speed needed for competitive gaming as well as picture quality that makes everything look and feel more real. As a pioneer of the gaming space, LG will continue to invent completely new customer experiences through its high-performance LG UltraGear gaming monitors that come in various sizes and form factors to satisfy every kind of gamer.”

Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company

Other key features include HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectivity, alongside a headphone jack for DTS Headphone:X spatial audio.

“A CES 2023 Innovation Award honouree, model 45GR95QE is LG’s first-ever 45-inch curved OLED gaming monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio, WQHD (3,440 x 1,440) resolution screen. It is also the very first 45-inch display with an 800R curvature: an exciting, new form factor designed to deliver next-level gaming experiences. Certified as a low blue light product by leading global testing organizations TÜV Rheinland and UL Solutions, the matt Anti-glare & Low Reflection OLED panel of the curved UltraGear monitor is easier on the eyes than a conventional LED panel, meaning users can play for longer with less eye discomfort.

“The 45GR95QE’s remarkable, curved OLED panel offers a 1,500,000:1 contrast ratio and 98.5 per cent coverage of DCI-P3, producing the bright colours, deep blacks and crisp images that not only make the onscreen action come alive, but also heighten the player’s focus. Like its 27-inch sibling, the 45-inch model has a response time of less than 0.03ms GTG and a 240Hz refresh rate. Harnessing the immense potential of OLED, the 45GR95QE provides total gaming immersion.”
