LG Introduces New UltraGear Gaming Monitors With ATW Polarizer Tech Up To 260Hz Refresh Rate
LG has introduced new UltraGear Gaming Monitors with ATW Polarizer Technology, 48-inch OLEDs and 260Hz Refresh Rates. The new UltraGear lineup of gaming monitors include models 32GQ950, 32GQ850, and 48GQ900. The 2022 UltraGear gaming monitors have a brand-new design language, the latest display technology, and a variety of gaming and connection features to meet the needs of gamers.
The 32GQ950 boasts a 4K Nano IPS display with Advanced True Wide (ATW) Polarizer technology for accurate color, whereas the 32GQ850 has a QHD Nano IPS display featuring ATW as well as an ultra-high 240Hz refresh rate, overclocked (O/C) up to 260Hz.
