The UltraGear OLED gaming display lineup that LG will be showing at CES 2024 has been revealed. The most notable of these is the recently released 32GS95UE, which has an intriguing trick up its sleeve.
LG refers to the 32-inch 32GS95UE as having Dual-Hz. This enables the monitor to alternate between two modes: one that allows it to operate the display at a maximum refresh rate of 240Hz while running at 4K (3840x2160) resolution, and another that allows it to run at a maximum refresh rate of 480Hz while running at a lower FullHD (1920x1080) resolution.
Dual monitors and Specifications
The user can easily switch between these modes using a key or an on-screen joystick. When switching modes, the system should see the display at 4K 240Hz or 1080p 480Hz and scale accordingly. The panel appears to be artificially limited to 240Hz at 4K resolution, but it doesn't appear that the full 480Hz at 4K can be used with any current display standard.
The 32GS95UE also has 98.5% DCI-P3 coverage, 0.03ms GtG response times, DisplayHDR True Black 400 support, and two HDMI 2.1 ports. Unfortunately, the single DisplayPort is only rated 1.4 instead of the new DisplayPort 2.1, so you'll have to rely heavily on Display Stream Compression (DSC) to get the panel's full resolution and refresh rate.
Finally, the 32GS95UE has a built-in speaker system consisting of two subwoofers. The speakers are placed directly behind the OLED panel and use the front surface, which LG calls Pixel Sound technology, to emit sound. There's also DTS Virtual:X support through the speakers and built-in headphone jack.
In addition to the 32GS95UE, LG also announced five other OLED displays, including the 34-inch and 39-inch 34GS95QE and 39GS95QE, which feature curved 3440x1440 panels with 240Hz refresh rate, 800R curvature and the same GS923 interface.
Then there are the 45GS95QE and 45GS96QB, which are 45-inch 3440x1440 240Hz curved OLED screens, and the only difference between them is that the 45GS96QB has built-in speakers and USB-C 65W charging.
Finally, there's the 27GS95QE, which has a 27-inch 2560x1440 240Hz flat screen and similar specs to previous models. Regarding its availability, it’s not known yet but soon will be announced during or after CES.
