LG's New Ultrawide And Ultra HD Monitors Are Built For Gaming

LG today launched not one, but three brand-spanking new IT monitors from its Ultrawide and Ultra HD range. With gaming trends heading towards a 'true virtual reality' in terms of storyline and cinematic experience, LG has created monitors that enhance cinematic-feel and provide users with a wider-view and improved immersion.

The new Ultrawide and Ultra HD range -- Ultra HD (27UD88), Curved (34UC88) and Flat (34UM88C) are specifically fitted with a game feature that offers players smooth gameplay for an amazing real-world gaming experience, LG says. The new monitors also offer vivid colour expression that gives you enhanced visibility, even in those dark and clandestine scenes.

The new monitors include a brand-new ArcLine base that provides refined aesthetic flair, with the infinite display providing a borderless visual experience through the incredibly narrow 4-side display bezel. All three new models also come with the new USB-C and USB 3.0 Quick Charge for charging smartphones or transferring USB data.

"The gaming industry is bigger than ever, and we are always looking for the best equipment to train and play on," said Nathan Mott, Founder of professional eSports team LG Dire Wolves, who were at the launch to showcase the new features.

The eSports industry is worth around $1 billion and is continuing to grow, so getting ahead of the game with providing improved technology that meets the demands of professional gamers is just plain smart.

Here are the key features of the new monitors:
