Description

LG UltraGear 27GN950 is the world's first 4K IPS gaming monitor with 1ms response time. It combines speed with rich color gamut and high dynamic range to produce an immersive visual experience.
Continuing the legacy of the 27GL850 from 2019, which was the world's first IPS monitor with 1ms response time, the UltraGear 27GN950 extends this feat to 4K UHD. The same 144Hz refresh rate and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut are on offer. The 27GN950 further supports VESA DisplayHDR 600.
Naturally, the 27GN950 is compatible with both NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro.
Compared to previous models, which had a 3-side borderless design, this 2020 model comes with 4-side borderless design.
Two other flagship-level gaming monitors debuted with the 27GN950 are the 34-inch 34GN850 and the 38-inch 38GN950, both featuring a curved design in ultra-wide form factor.
