Serious gamers consider their keyboard and mouse an extension of themselves. LG like to think that the monitor is a continuation of the game; the better the monitor, the better the gaming experience. But what makes an excellent gaming monitor? And why is LG’s 21:9 34” Full HD Curved IPS Display, the LG 34UC79G-B, the king of gaming monitors? LG think it is so good they have included Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands to show off what it can do.

A 144Hz refresh rate: all the better to compete with

It’s simple really: a higher refresh rate means smoother gaming. That’s not just important for the most immersive gaming experience possible – because no one wants a jerky game – but competitive gaming, too. A 120Hz monitor is perfect for that, but a 144Hz monitor is even better. Slower 60Hz monitors are practically slideshows by comparison.

With a refresh rate this fast, you’ll have a definite advantage over everyone with much slower 60Hz monitors. Once you experience the blistering 144Hz refresh rate of the LG 34UC79G-B, equipped with FreeSync technology, your old 60Hz monitor will seem like a carthorse by comparison.

1ms response time: all the better to headshot with

The only thing that will ruin a gaming experience quicker than choppy performance is a monitor that responds when it feels like it. Fast response times are crucial for any gamer that wants to take their hobby seriously, even more so for those looking to take their gaming to another level. But what is response time?

Response time is the time it takes between pushing a button on your keyboard or moving the mouse, and when it happens on the monitor. Anything less than the best puts you at a definite disadvantage. It also makes high-octane games like Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands a much more engaging experience. Because when the chips are down, and bullets are whizzing past your head, you need to have every advantage you can get to win the fight.

Vivid colours: all the better to experience gaming with

Let’s get real for a second. Graphics matter. They may not make a game, but a good looking game is never a bad thing. And if you thought games looked good on your current monitor, wait until you see what LG has been cooking up for you. Even at the highest settings, LG’s expertise with screens has allowed LG’s 34UC79G-B monitor to display every colour as crisp and detailed as possible. And that makes all the difference.

You don’t need to look any further than Ghost Recon Wildlands to see proof of that. Thanks to Ubisoft’s incredible AnvilNext engine, the game looks spectacular at all angles, but LG wants to take it to a whole new dimension.

Game mode: LG care about gamers

LG put together the best gaming technology available with one of the world’s most beautiful games, as proof of LG’s commitment to gamers. That’s also why LG has implemented a cutting-edge Gaming Mode and advanced gaming features in the LG 34UC79G-B, letting you quickly optimise monitor settings, enable and disable an array of neat features, with a few presses of a button. That’s just some of the power behind this incredible monitor. Interested? › Home › Consumer Monitors › LG 34UC79G-B
