LG Electronics (066570.KS) has unveiled the latest addition to its UltraGear gaming monitor series, the 49GR85DC.

The 49-inch curved display with a 32:9 aspect ratio features an exceptional 240Hz refresh rate, giving gamers an immersive experience like having two 16:9 monitors side by side.

The 49GR85DC is more than just a gaming monitor. Its advanced multitasking capabilities and extra-wide screen make it ideal for productivity tasks and content viewing.

The monitor features a 49-inch dual QHD (5,120 x 1,440) panel with 1000R curvature for vibrant images that extend to the user's peripheral vision.

The monitor's widescreen width and high refresh rate enable a more responsive gaming environment.

The 49GR85DC is VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified with a 3000:1 contrast ratio and 1000 nits peak brightness for vibrant colors and deep blacks. Its virtually bezel-less design on three sides helps maintain focus during gaming sessions.

The 49GR85DC's multitasking features include Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture (PBP) modes that take full advantage of the widescreen 32:9 aspect ratio.

These modes allow users to simultaneously display content from a second device or work with multiple open windows.

For connectivity, the monitor offers DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1, enabling smooth gaming at 240Hz in Dual QHD resolution.

The monitor also features LED Hexagon backlighting and DTS Headphone:X support to enhance the gaming experience.

"As the gaming monitor market matures, there is a growing demand for large displays with high refresh rates and excellent picture quality," said Seo Young-Jae, senior vice president and head of the IT Business Unit at LG Electronics. "Our new UltraGear monitor is a testament to our commitment to meeting the diverse needs of today's consumers."

The new UltraGear gaming monitor is currently available in the U.S., with plans to launch in key European markets later this month and in Asia later this year.
