Share this content

LG have this week announced their new 32GQ850 display, a 31.5″ sized monitor which offers a 1440p resolution and 260Hz overclocked refresh rate. Interestingly this is also promoted as using an A-TW polarizer which is designed to improve black depth and off-angle performance from its Nano IPS panel. There’s not a huge amount of information about this screen yet, but what we know so far is included below.

LG 32GQ850 Specs

The screen is 31.5″ in size and features a Nano IPS panel. It has a 2560 x 1440 resolution, 1ms G2G response time spec, 400 cd/m2 brightness, and 178/178 viewing angles. There is a 240Hz native refresh rate which can be boosted to 260Hz via an overclocking feature, and this is supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. It also carries the ‘G-sync Compatible’ and ‘FreeSync Premium Pro’ certifications.

For connections there are 2x HDMI 2.1 and 1x DisplayPort 1.4 offered, along with 2x USB ports and a headphone jack. The stand offers tilt, height and swivel adjustments.

VESA DisplayHDR 600

Elsewhere the screen has HDR 600 certification meaning it can support a peak brightness of 600 nits+. It also includes a wide colour gamut with 98% DCI-P3 gamut coverage quoted. Don’t expect much here in terms of local dimming capability as the screen will be edge-lit only.

A-TW Polarizer returns!

Like their also announced 32GQ950 monitor, interestingly LG also specifically mention an A-TW (Advanced True Wide) polarizer film for this monitor, something that hasn’t been seen for IPS screens for many years, but that can help improve off-angle blacks and darker content. It’s great to see this being included again on IPS panels which are often criticised for their “IPS glow”.
