LG intros the world’s first 144Hz IPS 21:9 curved gaming monitor


    If you’re in the market for a new monitor, then you definitely should be considering a 21:9 curved display. This can replace the multiple screens we’ve had on our desks over the past 10 years and importantly skip on the bezel in the middle. One of the market leaders when it comes to these displays is LG and they’ve just announced a new model.

    LG Electronics has unveiled a new UltraWide monitor in Australia, affectionately known as the LG34UC79G (rolls right off the tongue). LG says this monitor showcases significant advances in the 21:9 UltraWide market. The 144Hz IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide display is perfect for gaming with accurate colour expression, black stabiliser mode and fast refresh rate, to give you rapid action and a smoother gaming experience.

    Marketing Manager for LG Electronics Australia. Russ Prendergast says,

    “the latest video games are hugely sophisticated, with emphasis placed on the speed and quality at which the graphics are rendered. The UltraWide ™ monitors now deliver a screen refresh rate of 144Hz to meet the sophisticated graphics in modern video games, providing gamers the ultimate gaming experience. LG continues to innovate for the customer and we’re thrilled we can meet the demands of today’s gaming audience with the new UltraWide monitor.

    “There is a rising trend for LG UltraWide monitors with a long list of video games now supporting a 21:9 aspect ratio. This wider monitor allows gamers a more immersive gaming experience with  important features you’d typically find on a much smaller, 16:9 monitor.”



    The LG 34UC79G is the world’s first 144Hz IPS 21:9 curved gaming monitor and if you’re PC is up to the task, it’ll deliver a smoother experience and uninterrupted graphics with a one millisecond Motion Blur Reduction mode, it boasts near seamless image transitions, and delivers accurate colour.

    The display also features Black Stabiliser and Dynamic Action Sync modes which are specifically designed to give better visibility in dark scenes allowing you to attack enemies faster and avoid objects in the hard to see areas. The Dynamic Action Sync allows you to see action as it occurs in real time, meaning you can react immediately.  It also reduces input lag so users can enjoy fast-paced gameplay without any delays.

    The LG 34UC79G also includes a number of practical design features which fit into gaming station setup without hindering gaming such as tilting, adjusting the height and the mouse line hook which minimises tangled cords.

    As you know, this weekend PAX Australia is on and if you’re attending, make sure you stop by the LG booth as they’ll be displaying the monitor over the next three days (4th – 6th November) the Melbourne Convention Centre.
