LG announced back in August 2022 the launch of their new curved 45″ ultrawide OLED gaming screen with a 240Hz refresh rate. The UltraGear 45GR95QE has a steep 800R curvature designed to increase user immersion for gaming, and a 3440 x 1440 resolution. It’s OLED panel is bound to attract interest with near-instant response times, per pixel dimming for excellent HDR performance, true blacks and a near infinite contrast ratio. The inclusion of a 240Hz refresh rate marks a decent step up from common 120Hz OLED TV’s used in the monitor market over the last few years including the LG 42C2, and even compared with current 175Hz QD-OLED desktop monitors like the Dell Alienware AW3423DW. Unlike the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 announced at the same time, the LG 45GR95QE is not bendable, and has a fixed curvature although it’s based on the same panel.
LG UltraGear 45GR95QE Specs
The screen is 45″ in size (44.75″ to be exact) with an ultrawide format and 21:9 aspect ratio. It has a very steep 800R curvature as well. The screen has a fairly low 3440 x 1440 resolution for the screen size, but also offers a 0.03ms G2G response time spec, 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio, 178/178 viewing angles, 1.07b colour depth and a wide 98.5% DCI-P3 colour gamut. The screen comes factory calibrated but (rare for a gaming screen) the display also offers hardware calibration support which is great news.
The high 240Hz refresh rate is supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ certifications are listed as well to give some reassurance around VRR performance. A range of gaming extras like crosshair, black stabilizer and FPS counters are included in the OSD menu.
The screen does include a “anti-glare and low reflection” coating like the current 48″ OLED 48GQ900 model in LG’s OLED range. This is likely to be more suited to most people for a desktop monitor.
HDR10 is mentioned, and we assume this will be the only HDR format supported, although being an OLED panel will mean excellent black depth and contrast ratio, as well as per pixel dimming to avoid issues with halos and blooming that you get on LCD panels with even the best Mini LED backlights.
Connectivity wise the screen has 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.1 interfaces, with HDMI-VRR mentioned for those connections to support modern consoles in the press release. PiP and PbP modes are supported as well for multiple inputs. There are also 2x USB data ports, a SPDIF sound ouput and a headphone jack provided. A remote control accessory is included in the box, and the screen supports tilt, height and swivel adjustments.
Pricing and Availability
Update 24/11/22 – The screen was showcased at IFA 2022 in Berlin earlier this year. The LG US website has the screen listed at a price of $1699.99 and says “Pre-order starts December 12th. Estimated date for shipping is December 28th”. No details on UK or Europe availability and pricing yet.
