LG 38GN950 Now Available to Pre-order – Full Information Included

We brought you a sneak peak of the forthcoming LG 38GN950 back in January, and we now have some more detailed information about the screen as well as the availability of the first pre-orders. The 38GN950 is an adaptive-sync alternative to the excellent Native G-sync 38GL950G display we reviewed in February. While that model did actually allow support for both NVIDIA and AMD systems, it featured a hardware G-sync module. This new model keeps many of the specs and features of the other, but uses normal adaptive-sync to support VRR from both graphics card platforms. The VRR performance should be solid though as the screen has been certified under both the NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ and AMD ‘FreeSync Premium Pro’ schemes.
