LG officially unveiled its new UltraGear gaming displays during this year’s E3 2019. The brand has a total of two models under the lineup, and both monitors are the first gaming displays to be fitted with a 1ms Nano IPS display.

It’s also got a higher maximum refresh rate than the 27-inch model at 175Hz and is also a curved gaming display with a virtually borderless design. Plus, a new and improved version of LG’s Sphere Lighting 2.0 at built into the rear of the monitor.
Unlike the 27-inch model, the 38GL950G houses a full-size NVIDIA G-Sync module and is VESA DisplayHDR 400-certified.
