LG has announced its new lineup of 'Ultra' monitors for 2020, including a shiny new 38-inch UltraWide Monitor with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
By way of a press release, LG announced 3 new monitors in total; the UltraFine Ergo, the Ultra Gear, and the UltraWide.
The Ergo is a 31.5-inch, 4K UHD display. It refreshes at 60Hz and features a USB-C port, as well as 2 HDMI slots. USB-C allows for 4K imaging, fast data transfer, and laptop charging through one cable, but thanks to HDMI, it should prove a decent desktop solution for Mac and Windows users alike. It also has AMD FreeSync technology and a 5ms response time. The Ergo is designed for "working professionals and anyone who spends a significant amount of time at a desk."
Next is the UltraGear. A new range of gaming monitors promising "blistering speed and excellent picture quality." There's a 27-inch model that comes with a 1ms Nano IPS display and a 144Hz refresh rate, which can be overclocked to 160Hz:
There are also 34 and 38-inch models available, they come with a 160Hz refresh as standard. The 27 and 38-inch models are VESA DisplayHDR 600-certified, whilst the 34-inch model supports VESA Display HDR 400.
The final offering is LG's new UltraWide Monitor. This is a curved 38-inch UltraWide QHD+ model. It ships with 3,840 x 1600 resolution (almost 4K), and comes with the same 1ms Nano IPS display/144Hz refresh rate as the 27-inch UIltra Gear. It's NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible and comes with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
On the entire lineup LG's head of its IT business division, Jang Ik-hwan said:
