The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this month is going to see a lot of new innovative products showcased by a multitude of companies. LG too is preparing for the show with some 4K Ultra HD TVs and UltraWide monitors. The South Korean electronics giant plans to introduce world’s first 21:9 UltraWide displays with AMD FreeSync technology at the CES in Vegas.
The new LG UltraWide monitor lineup is specifically targeted at gamers, graphic designers, photographers, financial business persons and media professionals.
Let’s have a look at them:
Model LG 34UM67
This is LG’s first 21:9 gaming monitor offering a wide 34-inch view and is specifically designed for graphic-intensive gaming. It uses the AMD FreeSync technology that removes screen tearing, thus offering a smooth gaming experience with fluid motion.
Corporate Vice President of ISV/IHV Partner Group of AMD, Roy Taylor says:
“AMD FreeSync technology is an innovative monitor technology, based on free and open industry standards, to eliminate the tearing and stuttering that has plagued PC gaming for 30 years. We are pleased that LG Electronics stands with us with truly exciting AMD FreeSync-ready displays like the LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor.“
The wide field of view helps gamers to see even those spaces that remain hidden in regular 16:9 monitors. Dark scenes in a game are illuminated by the Black Stabilizer of the monitor enabling the gamer to see hidden objects and enemies clearly. It also has a Dynamic Action Sync mode for realtime gameplay experience.
Popular games supporting 21:9 resolution screen are World of Warcraft, Battlefield 4 and ArcheAge and many more games supporting this display are expected to be developed in future.
