LG introduced a new ultra-wide monitor for gamers — 49GR85DC. This is a 49-inch model, which, somewhat unusually for the company, does not use an IPS panel manufactured by LG Display, but a curved VA panel.

The LG UltraGear 49GR85DC has dual QHD (5120×1440 pixels) resolution, 32:9 aspect ratio, and 240 Hz screen refresh rate. Thanks to the use of a VA panel, the maximum static contrast ratio is 3000:1, and the typical brightness is 450 nits. Peak brightness can reach 1000 nits, thanks to which the monitor was able to receive VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification.

Other technical specifications: screen curvature 1000R (1 m), color coverage – 95% of the DCI-P3 space, response time of the panel, according to the manufacturer, is 1 ms (GtG), there is support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro adaptive frequency technology.

The LG UltraGear 49GR85DC is now on sale in USA and Europe for $1,300, £1,500 or €1,300, depending on the market.
