LG announced a new line of gaming monitors this week at IFA in Berlin. These UltraGear 34-inch monitors have IPS displays with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 3440 x 1440 resolution. The new UltraGear monitors are pretty standard for top-of-line gaming displays, as they sport specs similar to Alienware and Acer offerings. But these screens do mark LG’s latest update in the gaming monitor market, support both Nvidia and AMD GPU display tech, and offer an even wider resolution than previous models.

There are two monitors being introduced in the new line. The 34GK950G and 34GK950F are pretty similar, except that the G model has Nvidia G-Sync and a slower refresh rate (120Hz when overclocked) than the F model with Radeon FreeSync 2 and a refresh rate of 144Hz. The G-Sync model also has LG’s Sphere Lighting system, meaning fans of florescent RGB lighting schemes might prefer it over the other.

Both monitors have borderless bezels and a 1,900R curvature with anti-glare. You can tilt and swivel the monitor to adjust it to the optimal viewing position. As for ports, they come with one DisplayPort 1.2, an HDMI 1.4 port, two USB 3.0 ports, a DC power input connector and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

There are no details on pricing or availability yet.
