LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor has AMD FreeSync Technology under the Hood; Set for CES Showcase

January 1, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It was around the last year’s Consumer Electronics Show that LG revealed one of its first ultraHD resolution screens with a 21:9 aspect ratio.

Moving a year ahead from then, there has been not much of a change in the ultra-wide segment. However, LG is rewriting the rules yet again with a new innovation on that terrain.

Ahead of the Consumer Electronic Show that begins next month, the South Korean manufacturer has announced an UltraWide Gaming monitor that would be featuring the AMD FreeSync technology, making it the first from the company to do so.


The new LG monitor, codenamed 34UM67, is the one that has been specifically designed for gaming. The FreeSync technology from AMD will ensure that images are correctly aligned even when the GPU and monitors are out of sync, which comes in almost similar lines as that of the one from Nvidia, with efforts of anti-screen tearing well in place.

LG’s new ultra-wide monitor will be featuring a 34-inch screen and will be letting gamers to enjoy fluid motion even in rapid gameplay moments. Although with a big eye focusing on gamers, the ultra-wide monitor has also been billed as coming handy for digital imaging artists and business professionals.

It also comes with additional features like the Black Stabilizer for enhancing objects in darker areas of the screen, Dynamic Action Sync for minimizing input lags and the like.

The monitor will be roping in a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels, with IPS display and 178-degree viewing angle. Pricing details of the rig has not yet been revealed by the manufacturers.

LG would also be putting up for show the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor in the CES next month. Currently, LG is the leader in sales of monitors with 21:9 aspect ratio, holding a share of 77 percent on that front.
