21:9 UltraWide Gaming Monitor with AMD FreeSync Technology.
This year’s CES will see the introduction of the world’s first 21:9 “UltraWide” gaming monitor compatible with AMD FreeSync technology for fluid motion during fast gameplay. Created by LG, the 2015 monitor lineup features monitors designed for gamers, creative and business professionals.
LG’s UltraWide Gaming Monitor (34UM67) is the company’s first 21:9 monitor specifically developed for graphics-intensive gaming. AMD’s FreeSync technology eliminates the screen tearing that
occurs when the monitor and graphics card are out of sync. Furthermore FreeSync technology guarantees the smoothest and most seamless gaming experience, generating fluid motion without any loss of frame rate.
“AMD FreeSync technology is an innovative monitor technology, based on free and open industry standards, to eliminate the tearing and stuttering that has plagued PC gaming for 30 years,” said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president of ISV/IHV Partner Group, AMD. “We are pleased that LG Electronics stands with us with truly exciting AMD FreeSync-ready displays like the LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor.”
The 34UM67 also has an UltraWide field of view (FOV), allowing gamers to gain the upper hand by revealing hidden spaces that were invisible on regular 16:9 monitors. The monitor’s Black
Stabilizer illuminates dark scenes and helps to clearly define the deep black areas where objects and enemies could be hidden. The Dynamic Action Sync mode minimizes input lag, enhancing users’ real time gaming experience. Many popular games such as Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and ArcheAge currently support 21:9 resolution with more games expected to support this resolution in the future.
LG’s curved 34-inch UltraWide monitor (34UC97) in Quad HD resolution (3440 x 1440) makes maximum use of its wide screen real estate. It allows creative professionals, such as graphic designers or photographers, to look at more images as thumbnails and media creators to see longer video image sequences or graphical representations of sound. The monitor is compatible with Thunderbolt™ 2, which allows for Mac users to take advantage of its high-speed bulk data transfers. And for gamers, the curved display provides a more immersive experience.
The monitor’s 178-degree viewing angle of the In-Plane Switching (IPS) display recreates colors across over 99 percent of the sRGB color space, so there is no color distortion at any angle. The monitor’s color accuracy, viewing angle and sRGB color space have been certified by TUV Rheinland and Intertek and also validated by UL, says LG.
LG will also showcase the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (Model 31MU97) featuring 4K resolution (4096 x 2160), with more pixels than standard Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160).
