LG has a new 31.5″ monitor for users who want to game and work on the same display. This is the new 32UK550-B and it is targeted for the mainstream market. The large monitor offers plenty of features for a reasonable price. This includes having a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 resolution) VA panel with a 95% DCI-P3 colour space coverage. It also covers 100% of the sRGB colour gamut and comes factory calibrated.
While it is not an IPS panel, it offers reasonably mainstream 60Hz refresh rate, 4ms GtG response time, 3000:1 contrast ratio and 300 nits typical brightness. Furthermore, the 32UK550-B also supports AMD FreeSync dynamic refresh rate technology. Although it is only goes from 40 to 60Hz range. The monitor also supports HDR10 and features LG’s Super Resolution+ upscaling technology built-in. If that is not enough to entice gamers, it also features LG’s Dynamic Action Sync. This reduces input lag through bypassing internal processing.
In terms of connectivity, the monitor has a single DisplayPort 1.2, and two HDMI 2.0a ports.
