[Guru3D] LG Electronics Launches UltraGear 27GN950 4K IPS / 144Hz / HDR600 gaming monitor.

The new UltraGear monitor builds on the fast, accurate colors of its predecessor to deliver 4K resolution for maximum gaming impact. A combination of speed, high resolution and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space 3 gives gamers a total sense of immersion.

And thanks to VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology, the 27GN950 can deliver virtually lossless 4K UHD images in 10-bit color with a 144Hz refresh rate via just a single DisplayPort cable. The Display sync technology is AMD's top FreeSync Premium Pro (compliant with G-Sync Compatible), it supports DCI-P3 98% wide color gamut display and Display HDR 600 high dynamic range. It also has functions such as "Sphere Lighting," a lighting function that changes the light according to background music and sound effects, "DAS mode" that minimizes the time lag of the video signal, and "black stabilizer" that enhances the visibility of dark scenes.
Looks like I may have found a replacement monitor.

I just hope it's not as disappointing as 850 and 83A when it comes to contrast.
Speaking of 850, LG also released 27GN850. Not sure what the difference is beside lack of USB ports.

850 is 1440p, 950 is 4k.

And that equates to better contrast?
Nvm, I've meant differences between GL850 and GN850. They seem identical beside w/e above. Maybe GN has finally better panels.

It will be very interesting to see DSC finally implemented in a consumer product.
It's also sad that it was ever deemed necessary at all when HDMI2.1 should have been on the market ages ago, and we've been pushing 4K120 with dual DP1.4 for a long time as well.

The upshot is if DSC works well, we should be getting 4K240hz monitors sooner than later.

This appears to be a solid display. Am I missing something that makes it not great?

yeah, the contrast problem isn't gonna get fixed unless they start using microLED or OLED.

Go Away
