The new LG UltraGear 32GP850B gaming monitor is the perfect compromise between frame rate, performance, and graphic details. There are faster displays with higher refresh rates. There are panels with more pixels and monitors that are more inches. As a gaming suggestion on paper, LG’s latest version looks pretty compelling.
The basic recipe provides for a fast 32-inch IPS panel with a 1 ms response time, 180 Hz image repetition, and 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
There have been a lot lately.
Noise in high frame rate 4K games. , also with the new generation of consoles from Microsoft and Sony. But the LG UltraGear 32GP850B’s 1440p and 180Hz combination is almost certainly a better option for most PC gamers.

it’s all very good, no doubt about it. But in the current context of incredibly inflated graphics card prices and poor availability, good luck with handling this type of display correctly.
Admittedly, you can’t say that on the desktop, especially since this is a 32-inch panel and not a more common 27-inch 1440p.
The pixel density of 92 DPI is not exactly impressive. Hence, the main appeal of this panel lies in the balance of priorities: gaming versus general computing.
On the plus side, this 1ms pixel response represents the real gray-to-gray problem rather than the normally less reliable MPRT metric.
There is also AMD FreeSync Premium certification along with Nvidia GSync support. LG also claims to cover 98 percent of the IPS panel’s DCIP3 digital cinema color space. In addition to being fast, the LG UltraGear 32GP850B is also a precision tool. a rather sleek client with slim bezels and a stand that offers height, tilt, and vertical rotation.
Twist only is not supported; You have to physically rotate the entire monitor. If there is an obvious weakness on paper, it indicates HDR performance.
Decoding of HDR10 signals is supported, which is useful and means that you can watch HDR videos or play HDR games and see the correct colors.
However, there is no VESA HDR certification and the maximum brightness reaches a relatively modest level of 350 cd / m².
Also, the IPS panel has a minimum rating of 700: 1 for static contrast, which won’t help you get high peaks and deep valleys at the same time. Anyway, if that’s the theorists, how does the LG UltraGear 32GP850B actually look in practice? It’s not the most shocking or vibrant gaming panel we’ve ever seen.
Mediocre backlighting performance and mediocre contrast performance do not help here. There is also some old IPS sheen, which results in a faint and slightly watery overall look.
Unsurprisingly, the HDR content isn’t impressive.Does a game like Cyberpunk 2077 look better in HDR mode than in SDR on the LG UltraGear 32GP850B?
It’s probably a little more shocking, but it’s a much closer decision than what it should or would be on a monitor with true HDR capability.

It’s just not as vibrant as you are.
Benefit from most modern IPS monitors, let alone a VA monitor with a full array, MicroLED local dimming, and all the innovative Shizzle.
What is more impressive, however, is the speed of the LG UltraGear 32GP850B. LG has designed three levels of pixel overdrive in the OSD; the middle setting offers a really fast response with little or no visible overshoot.
Assuming you have a pretty fast GPU, the 180 Hz update also produces super-low latency – by the way, the full 180 Hz is only accessible via an “overclocking switch” in the OSD menu, which is a pretty silly trick and boring we do not want monitor manufacturers.
This is a 180hz monitor, the whole “overclocking” thing is bullshit. Speaking of access to the full 180 Hz, the c
