LG has announced the Ultragear GR65DC and GR75DC ultrawide gaming monitors boasting dual QHD resolutions and high refresh rates. It combines the multi-screen benefits without the hassle of managing two individual displays. Just don’t call it a two-in-one because that’ll get confusing with laptops.
Both models boast a 5,120×1,440 DQHD resolution based on a 1,500R curved VA panel. Their 45in – 44.5in to be exact – size is equivalent to two 24in 1,440p displays set side by side, meaning a large workspace for the multi-taskers out there and improved immersion for gamers – especially those into racing.
Gamers can simultaneously stream content while enjoying console gaming, thanks to the picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture modes. Regardless of the use case, text and video should look crisp and clear with their 119ppi pixel density. But that’s not all – it’ll take the best graphics card to push it to its limits, though.
These monsters carry a high 200Hz refresh rate alongside a 1ms GtG response time for a smooth and quick gaming experience. This is only accentuated by the immersive curved design. While the 3000:1 contrast and 400nits are not ground-breaking compared to the latest QD-OLED monitors, they’re precisely what you can expect from 10bit VA panels.
Interestingly, both are VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified, indicating higher brightness and possibly better contrast if there are many dimming zones. Other than that, we have 95% DCI-P3 gamut coverage and FreeSync Premium Pro support.
On the I/O side, again, both have a similar set, including a 4-pole 3.5mm audio jack with DTS Headphone:X support, two HDMI 2.1, one DisplayPort 1.4, one USB 3.0 Type-B, and two USB 3.0 Type-A ports. The only difference here is that the GR75DC houses an extra USB 3.0 Type-C with 90W power delivery and DisplayPort Alt mode.
Lastly, both seem to support 100x100mm VESA mounting, which is excellent since the stand’s adjustments are very limited on these kinds of large displays.
The LG Ultragear GR65DC is available now at $799.99, with pre-orders for the GR75DC priced at $899.99. For a limited duration, the latter comes with an UltraGear GP9 gaming speaker worth $399 when purchasing from LG’s store.
