Miss. It's 60hz. That LG panel is 144hz native and 165hz oc.
I still think it's best to call them and get a clarification on contrast ratio.
That doesn't mean anything. The majority of gaming monitors are running refresh rates higher than their panel spec sheet. Not to mention, it could be using the same panel but with a slightly different part number to reflect different refresh rates. This is fairly common, as is making versions of the same panels with smaller "bezels" a slightly different part number too. Doesn't mean at heart it's not the same panel. Two different 31.5" 1440P VA flat panels don't just pop out of thin air at the same time and be completely different. That is not how the display industry works. Significant tooling is involved.
