LG 34GN850 with 34″ Ultrawide IPS Panel and 160Hz Refresh Rate

Share this content

LG have recently announced the successor to the very popular 34GK950F display, their new 34GN850. The new screen maintains the same 34″ ultrawide Nano IPS panel from LG.Display with the same 3440 x 1440 resolution. This time the native panel refresh rate of 144Hz has been boosted a little via an overclocking function to 160Hz. The high refresh rate is supported by adaptive-sync meaning it can be used for VRR from both AMD and NVIDIA systems. The screen has been certified by both AMD (FreeSync Premium) and NVIDIA (G-sync Compatible) as well.

The same 1ms G2G response time spec from the older model has been kept here, although we know that it is not a realistic figure in practice as with other 1ms rated IPS panels. In other specs the IPS panel offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 8-bit+FRC colour depth (10-bit support) and a wide gamut covering 98% DCI-P3.

There are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 and a headphone jack provided for connectivity. The stand offers tilt and height adjustments.

The price is expected to be around $1000 USD / £1000 GBP and release is expected soon, although could of course be impacted by the Coronavirus situation.
