LG has introduced a new gaming monitor named 27GN800. The new LG Ultra Gear model should convince with a particularly high refresh rate and also have a wider color space. LG 27GN800-B gaming monitor is equipped with a 27-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels – QHD resolution represents a compromise in a certain way because the lower resolution also means that current game titles are also higher quality setting as well as frame rate can be displayed – the increased frame rate should also and especially offer advantages in multiplayer titles.
LG puts the refresh rate at 144 Hz, with both G-Sync from NVIDIA and FreeSync 2 from AMD being supported. The switching time (gray-to-gray) is specified to one millisecond. The 1ms monitor should cover the sRGB to 99 percent and cover 1.076 billion colors. However, the 27GN800-B does not have a native 10-bit panel; FRC is used instead.
The manufacturer puts the static contrast ratio at 1000:1 and the brightness at 350 cd/m², whereby the specified viewing angle of 178° corresponds to the expectations of an IPS panel. Several special display modes address video players directly, so Dynamic Action Sync should reduce the input delay and the Black Stabilizer increase the visibility if desired. A crosshair can also be displayed.
The LG 27GN800-B receives image signals via HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort, and a headphone output is installed. The inclination and height can be adjusted, and the LG computer monitor can also be mounted to another stand, wall bracket, or monitor arm via VESA.
