LG Announces its First UltraWide 5K Monitor with Thunderbolt 3 Connectivity and HDR 600 Support

Slowly but surely, the ultra-wide monitors are becoming the new industry standard for content creators and creative professionals. The South Korean electronics giant LG is pushing the envelope of the format even further by adding blazing-fast Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, 5K resolution alongside HDR support to its very first 5K UltraWide monitor.

The just-announced 34WK95U model sports 34-inch IPS display with native resolution of 5120 × 2160 and 21:9 aspect ratio. The unit supports Nano IPS technology, staggering color reproduction capabilities as well as HDR 600 all packed in a sleek borderless design. What’s more, the newcomer features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which enables the transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz with a single cable.

For all pixel peepers out there, the company has also unveiled a brand new 32-inch UHD 4K monitor that seems to be the first to offer LG’s advanced Nano IPS technology. The latter involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen’s LED to absorb excess light wavelengths. According to LG, this technology enhances exponentially the intensity and purity of on-screen colors for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience.

The LG 32UK950 monitor can display 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and just like its ultrawide sibling, supports HDR 600 video format. On top of that, the model features the first Thunderbolt 3 docking display to support 4K daisy chaining, allowing a setup of dual 4K monitors. Users can also use the Thunderbolt 3 interface to connect their MacBook Pro via a single active Thunderbolt 3 cable and charge it along the way by utilizing the provided power by the interface.

In the official press release, LG also mentions briefly its latest QHD gaming monitor (model 34GK950G), which will be offering premium picture quality with Nano IPS display and high-speed G-Sync technology. Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing or release dates yet. Nonetheless, the brand new models will be showcased at LG’s booth (#11100) in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the upcoming CES 2018.
