The UltraGear 38GN950 is LG’s latest ultra-wide display for video games with a massive 38-inch display, QHD + (3840 x 1600) resolution, G-Sync support, a refreshing 144Hz price plus many other features, one of the best gaming displays available. which you can buy now.
With the release of the PS5, 4K games are likely to become much more popular than ever before. However, for PC gamers, there is another alternative: the ultra-wide 21: 9 aspect ratios. For some, the ultra-wide edge ratios provide a much more immersive experience than a 16: 9 4K panel.
Plus, while the 3840 x 1600 UltraGear 38GN950 doesn’t quite match 4K (3840 x 2160), it’s also around the corner – effectively suggesting that you can improve your PC gaming performance, especially at lower frame rates.
This extra breather allows you to make better use of the 144Hz refresh rate, as well as perform demanding graphics tweaks and tweaks, without giving up on over-the-top means of pure photo quality.
This suggests that no matter how good the LG UltraGear 38GN950 is, it will be out of the question for many. It also means that LG has taken down their work to guarantee such a high price.
As you would expect from LG, the UltraGear 38GN950’s design is unique and comparable to other UltraGear models. It comes with a virtually bezel-free bezel. This is a large screen that will likely dominate even the largest tables, but these thin bezels ensure that you are attracted to the screen rather than a bulky build. They also give the 38GN950 a modern look.
On the back of the UltraGear 38GN950 you’ll find LED lighting that can be synchronized with music or just for aesthetics. LG’s system, known as Round Lights 2.0, is similar to the Ambilight attribute found on Philips TVs. This is a welcome addition in which we found that using the LG UltraGear 38GN950 at night was made even more comfortable as the light hit the wall surface behind the screen.
You can adjust the settings using the LG UltraGear Control Center software, although you will need to connect the screen to your PC via USB. This allows you to connect peripherals to your monitor via the USB port.
In terms of ports, the UltraGear 38GN950 has 2 USB ports (plus a USB upstream port to connect to your pc), 2 HDMI, a DisplayPort, and an audio jack, which are easily accessible on the back of the display – we found this to be a much more practical area. than below.
Overall, this is an exceptionally attractive display – before you even redesigned it. At work, however, the LG UltraGear 38GN950 is even more impressive.
Of course, efficiency is unlikely to be the main reason for buying the LG UltraGear 38GN950 – and it’s also a video game monitor. As in this respect, this is not displeasing. The ultra-wide 21: 9 aspect ratio is a real wow factor. This really brings more motion pictures to games, and by expanding almost the entire field of view of the player, you will enjoy a super-immersive experience – along with a tactical advantage.
One game in which the UltraGear 38GN950’s element ratio improved dramatically was the excellent Microsoft Flight Simulator. The 21: 9 ratio allowed us to see even more of the cockpit, in addition to some windows on the left side. Not only did it give a realistic look – something that video games simulations went out of their way to do – but it also had sensible uses. This allowed us to observe the waypoints as well as the paths from the window without having to press a switch to toggle the scope, making flight much easier.
The LG UltraGear 38GN950 has a few more tricks that will make it great for video games. 1ms response time, G-Sync, and AMD FreeSync Costs Pro compatibility and 144Hz refresh rate that can be quickly overclocked to 160Hz all elevate this display over others in this category.
Taken together, these attributes – pardon the pun – are game-changing and also have a huge impact when playing computer games, especially when playing crazy, loaded games. Doom Eternal is the perfect example. Playing at 144Hz as well as 160Hz is an immersive and delightful experience as you vomit as well as rip your method through crowds of demons with silky smooth activity, without a hint of display tearing. This is seriously impressive, and will certainly make it difficult to return to 60Hz monitors.
High-quality on-screen photos are paramount, and again the LG UltraGear 38GN950 does a great job. As mentioned earlier, this is not really a monitor that you would probably buy purely for work; but with support for 98% DCI-P3 color gamut, it is a great option for professional photographers and video editors for whom accurate color reproduction is critical.
According to Samsung, the UltraGear 38GN950 includes a nano IPS panel with nanometer-sized pixels for stunning color brightness. This was absolutely true in Doom Eternal, which looks great on the monitor, but a smarter Microsoft Flight Simulator combo also appears after that.
UltraGear 38GN950 also supports HDR; However, this is just a mid-range DisplayHDR 600. While this is a much better performance than, say, DisplayHDR400 or DisplayHDR500, it’s still a mid-range HDR variant with a maximum brightness of just 600 nits. This is the only area of the UltraGear 38GN950 that doesn’t really feel premium. It will certainly still display good photos in HDR, however it can’t really match up to OLED specifically.
Overall, however, the LG UltraGear 38GN950 is a sensational display for video games, delivering an outstanding combination of speed, responsiveness, breathtaking aspect ratio and stunning high image quality. It’s expensive, however if you’ve built an awesome gaming rig and want the screen to match, you might find it a worthwhile investment.
