LG Electronics (LG) today announced plans to introduce the world's first 21:9 "UltraWide" gaming monitor compatible with AMD FreeSync technology for fluid motion during fast gameplay.

The new monitor headlines LG's expanded lineup being unveiled next week at the 2015 International CES and further solidifies the company's leadership in the growing 21:9 segment, which caters to the digital imaging, business professional and gaming markets. Based on IDC's Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, LG is the world sales leader in this monitor segment over the last seven fiscal quarters (as of the third quarter of 2014) with a market share of 77.3 percent of the world's 21:9 monitors

I absolutely love what NVIDIA did with G-Sync, and there's no question AMD is playing the catch up game with them, but we actually need them to put some pressure on NVIDIA over this.

We need cheaper and better G-Sync panels and/or alternatives.

So I wouldn't rush to get it.
But it will be IPS most likely.
Probably because $1200 monitor with FreeSync is not going to sell FreeSync.

Fingers crossed that it's still an IPS panel that has freesync in it

If it's a TN it will confirm that we aren't seeing any IPS Gsync/FreeSync displays anytime soon. All 21:9 have been IPS/Va up to this point. Here's hoping it's an IPS.

I'm guessing it's TN. In their full statement they were advertising that other 21:9, non-adaptive-sync display as IPS. That was not the case with the A-sync 21:9 though.

Edit:
The IPS-display was a 3440x1440. Maybe that's why it was specificly advertised as IPS (how many 1440p 21:9 IPS displays are there out there?), and not the others.

So far we have flat panels from LG and AOC. Curved panel as well from LG. Upcoming curved panels from Dell and Samsung coming in the next few weeks. All IPS except the Samsung is a VA.

It has to be IPS because IPS is LG technology.
