LG UltraGear 27GP83B is a midrange 27-inch QHD IPS gaming monitor based on the 27GP850: It drops the integrated USB hub but is otherwise indistinguishable. In this case, it is to the latter as the 32-inch 32GP83B to the 32GP850.
Thanks to LG's Nano IPS panel, the 27GP83B is able to combine TN-level speed with rich and precise color reproduction. Just like the 27GP850, it omits LG's Sphere Lighting RGB lighting, though it further drops VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.
The UltraGear 27GP83B covers 98% of DCI-P3 color space and delivers 1ms response time and 165Hz refresh rate. It is also compatible with both NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. Last but not least, it features an ergonomic stand that offers tilt, height, and pivot adjustments.
Alongside the 27GP83B, LG markets several other gaming monitors in its 2021 lineup.
