LG Display introduced the new IPS Black technology six months ago, during the CES 2022 exhibition. At the same time, it became known that Dell plans to use it in its new monitor. And finally, another manufacturer announced a new model on IPS Black – HP Z32k G3.
We will remind you that the main advantage of IPS Black over traditional IPS panels is a 35% darker black color, as a result of which monitors based on this technology have much higher contrast and come close to VA models in this parameter.
The new HP Z32k G3 is a 4K monitor with a diagonal of 31.5 inches and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The static contrast is 2000:1 (even in the best traditional IPS models it usually does not exceed 1300:1), the peak brightness reaches 400 nits, the color gamut is extended and covers 98% of the DCI-P3 space. The monitor supports HDR mode, there is DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification.
The HP Z32k G3 has a KVM switch that allows you to comfortably use it as a screen for two computers at the same time, an Ethernet port and a USB hub with 4 USB 3.2 ports. Another very interesting functionality is the presence of a Thunderbolt 4 connector, through which you can not only transfer video/audio (40 Gbps), but also charge a connected laptop (100 W).
The company currently does not disclose the price of the monitor, it is only known that the HP Z32k G3 should go on sale in November this year.
