LG Electronics is upping the game for video gamers with the launch of its latest 32-inch 32GS95UE UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. Not only does it support 240Hz at 4K resolution, but users can crank up the refresh rate to a stellar 480Hz at 1080p with a single click.


The new OLED display was announced alongside a host of other gaming monitors, including 27-, 34-, 39- and 45-inch UltraGear OLED widescreen curved models, as LG looks set to significantly expand its family of OLED gaming products.

The star of the show is the 32-inch 32GS95UE UltraGear OLED, simply because it’s the only one to use LG’s new “Dual-Hz” capability, switching from fast to blazing-fast refresh rates. Currently, there are very few monitors available that offer refresh rates of 240Hz, let alone 480Hz, and the ability to switch between the two with a single click is unique.

According to LG, gamers will be able to switch between 240hz and 480Hz using a hotkey or the joystick’s directional switch, enabling them to choose the best mode based on the game they’re playing. That’s important, because fast-paced action games and shooting games are generally better with a higher refresh rate as it translates to smoother gameplay, whereas visually-rich, story-driven games are best enjoyed in native 4K resolution.

Besides that impressive trick, the LG 32GS95UE UltraGear boasts a 0.03ms grey-to-grey response time, helping to avoid motion blur and other artifacts, an important capability for any fast refresh rate monitor. It also offers high-end HDR picture quality, covering 98.5% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut at 400 nits, and a “virtually borderless design”. In addition, it comes with LG’s Pixel Sound technology, where the speakers are integrated within the OLED panel, similar to the Acoustic Surface tech found in Sony TVs. Other features include support for DTS Virtual:X surround sound, FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility, and more.

As for the other models, these include the 34-inch LG 34GS95QE and the LG 39GS95QE (pictured below), which is said to be LG’s first curved 39-inch gaming display. They’re both ultrawide models with a 21:9 aspect ratio and an aggressive 800R curve, with 4K resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate. Both of them support G-Sync, FreeSync Premium Pro and DisplayHDR True Black 400.


Lastly, LG said it’s refreshing its UltraGear OLED 27 and UltraGear OLED 45 models. Similarly, these both support 4K resolution graphics at 240Hz, but the 45-inch model also comes with speakers and a USB-C power connection that’s rated at 65-watts.

Each of the six new monitors will be equipped with a couple of HDMI 2.1 ports and a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection. They all support HDR, but with LG only citing the VESE DisplayHDR specification, that suggests only HDR10 is available.

LG said the six new monitors will go on sale sometime in 2024. The announcement is a great win for gamers, and one of the biggest signals yet that the monitor industry is now fully embracing OLED to elevate gaming experiences that have been held back for a long time by the lower quality graphics of standard IPS LCD displays.

"LG’s new lineup of UltraGear OLED gaming monitors elevates the gaming experience with groundbreaking technologies and a variety of sizes and form factors," said YS Lee, VP and head of the IT business, LG Electronics Business Solutions.
