Monitor devotees have been salivating at the possibility of a reasonable (indeed, generally) medium-sized OLED monitor with a high refresh rate since LG prodded the idea on its roadmap. Presently the LG UltraGear 27GR95QE-B has gone along and marked every one of the cases. It has: a 2560 x 1440p resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate, and an OLED panel with 0.3 ms (GtG) response times.
LG rather discreetly reported its first OLED gaming monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate toward the start of the end of the week by adding it to its site. However, all things considered, LG will have much more to say regarding it soon in light of the fact that with its specs, it’s something of a standout.
As you would have inferred from its code… er, name, the GR95 is at the 27″ scale. It has 98.5% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut and as it’s an OLED, a 1.5 million to 1 contrast ratio. It’s likewise confirmed for AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync, yet doesn’t have hardware acceleration for either.
Outwardly, the monitor has RGB and a stand with 11 cm of height adjustability and 20 degrees of swivel from one side to another and all over. For ports, it has two HDMI and one DisplayPort (no word yet on the versions), USB 3.0 up and downstream, and a SPDIF jack for audio passthrough.
For now, and until the GR95 hits the market, there are just two categories of high refresh rate OLED monitors to browse.
LG and a couple of different brands have delivered 42″ and 48″ 4K behemoths with a 120 Hz invigorate rate that kind of pass as monitors (they are more modest televisions). On the other hand, a few OEMs, again including LG, have as of late presented 34″ ultrawide OLEDs with a 3440 x 1440p goal and a 165-175 Hz invigorate rate. Corsair is going to get the fight together with a third choice: a 45″ version of the ultrawide with a 240Hz refresh rate.
In any case, LG is quick to report a 240Hz OLED monitor that is little and deft enough to show serious FPS games. At the recorded cost of $999, it’ll be less expensive than half of the OLEDs available. LG is set to send off it on Q1 2023 and we’ll probably hear more about it at CES in January.
