Something to look forward to: CES 2020 kicks off in a few weeks, where LG's expanded line-up of 'Ultra' branded monitors will be targeting professionals and gamers looking for a premium display. 4K options include the new UltraFine Ergo and three gaming-focused UltraGear models, while the curved ultrawide seems to tick all boxes at QHD+ resolution.

For pros looking to save precious desk space, the UltraFine Ergo's swiveling arm and clamp attachment could offer all the flexibility and freedom they need for positioning the 32-inch IPS display according to their workspace.

The 4K panel on this model (32UN880) covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and is HDR 10 compatible. It also offers a 5ms response time with AMD's FreeSync for variable refresh rate up to 60Hz.

In terms of connectivity, there's 1 x USB-C port for pushing 4K content, speedy data transfers and charging peripherals like laptops. Other ports include 2 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 2 x USB-A (downstream) and a headphone jack.


For gamers, there are three options to choose from the updated UltraGear series. Coming in at screen sizes of 27-, 34- and 38-inches, all three models (27GN950, 34GN850 and 38GN950) feature 1ms 'Nano' IPS displays, 144Hz refresh rate (overclockable to 160Hz), G-Sync compatibility and 98 percent coverage of DCI-P3.

Where these models differ is in HDR support. The 34-inch model is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified while the 27- and 38-inch models get the brighter VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification. Other specs include 2 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, USB-A (1 upstream, 2 downstream) and a headphone jack.


Lastly, there's the 38-inch LG UltraWide (38WN95C) monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio pushing 4K resolution at 144Hz. The Nano IPS panel is also G-Sync compatible with a 1ms response time, covers 98 percent of DCI-P3 and is VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified.

In terms of connectivity, the Curved UltraWide is the only model here to feature a Thunderbolt 3 port. The monitor also packs 2 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 2 x USB-A (downstream) and a headphone jack.

LG is yet to reveal the prices and availability of these monitors, although the 'Ultra' moniker suggests they'll be coming at a premium.
