LG 34-inch 21:9 ultra wide monitor for gamers is unveiled ahead of CES 2015

LG couldn’t wait for 2015 to officially unveil their brand new gaming monitor that should completely change the way both users and developers experience games. The new 21:9 aspect ratio that this gaming monitor packs is by far one of the most-impressive specifications on the market. The design though was specifically set with high-end gaming in mind. The company took advantage of AMD FreeSync to ensure that screens would not tear during the ultra-demanding games as visual specifications inside games gets more impressive by the day.

Specifically, Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and Mass Effect 3 can be played right now in 21:9 aspect ratio, but LG and developers believe that as more titles are generated with 21:9 aspect ratio in mind – that this type of console will become the mainstream option. Add in a 4K display, and what you’re left with is a gaming monitor that really could beat any of the competitors at this very moment.


The technology that is included in this monitor – by AMD is similar to that which is found in G-SYNC monitors that are produced by NVIDIA. While NVIDIA doesn’t make any monitors, they do provide the G-SYNC technology that prevents the screen tearing that users will see eliminated in these LG models. A 178 degree viewing angle is impressive on this device, and even more impressive is the 34-inch display that will be available on this device.


“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 of AMD in a statement.


While pricing hasn’t been released yet, those who are looking forward to this monitor won’t have to wait too long, as it’s expected to be entirely unveiled and launched at CES in January. This won’t be the only monitor that LG releases though at CES this year. In fact, they have a full lineup of monitors that will be getting put into operation, and being launched at CES in just a month. However, the fact that LG was unable to wait until the original launch date to reveal the monitor should show the excitement that this set has brought to the table so far.
