Ultrawide gaming monitors are undoubtedly the future of gaming and productivity. They offer much more immersive visual experience than the standard 16:9 aspect ratio monitors and even the multi-screen setups. The traditional 16:9 aspect ratio monitors can't justify and deliver the kind of graphics performance that the new 21:9 ultrawide screens offer. Once you have shifted to ultrawide screens, there's no going back because you'll be spoiled for all other monitors in the market. Even the sharpest ones will seem inadequate to your needs once you step into the world of ultra wide screens.
For individual gamers, the ultrawide screens are nothing short of a gateway into a world full of fantasy and stunning visuals. These wide displays offer a huge unhindered field of view which dual monitors and even multi-screen layouts cannot achieve. If you are an avid gamer but still stuck on the standard 16:9 aspect ratio monitors, you are missing a whole lot of exciting things in the world of serious gaming. To step up your gaming experience, you really need to experience what the ultra wide gaming monitors has to offer.

Ultrawide monitors: For bigger and better gaming experience
Gaming is all about immersive visuals. For years the world has witnessed tremendous development in the standard 16:9 aspect ratio displays, but they are just not sufficient as per today's gaming standards.

Ultrawide displays offer much wider field of view and let you see more content during the gameplay. The enhanced vision with ultrawide displays let you see more of the gaming content that you never knew was there in the game. Moreover, the ultrawide displays with wider field-of-view also give you an advantage over opponents that are playing games with a 16:9 monitor.

Let's find out what these ultrawide screens have to offer in terms of technology and more than just the flagship specifications.
LG’s ultrawide monitors: Cutting edge display technologies for immersive gaming
While we have several ultrawide monitors in the market, LG's wide screens offer the best combination of latest display technologies required for immersive gameplay. The LG ultrawide monitors come equipped with Adaptive Sync Technology that balances the rate of frame transfer between graphics card's frame rate and monitors refresh rate by synchronizing the number of frames. This prevents the unwanted higher input lag that can hamper the overall gaming experience. And while the input lag is not entirely unavoidable in nature, it can be minimized to a great level with FreeSync technology for a tear-free gaming experience.
The monitors without the Sync technology are not actually suitable for gaming and high-end graphical intensive tasks. They do not feel responsive and are often affected by slower and lower response time that causes blur, tearing and stuttering. With LG Ultrawide monitors, you will not face such issues as the monitors are especially designed to cut down the input lag for a smooth stutter and rear-free gaming experience. With LG's high-end ultrawide monitors, things will not go out of sync while you tune in to most demanding gameplay sessions.
1ms Motion Blur Reduction and 144Hz refresh rate for unstoppable smooth game play
A monitor's response time is very critical for a smooth game play which is enhanced while 1ms Motion Blur Reduction is ON. With the featured activated, LG's ultrawide screens will help you attain the precision and skill needed to play at high level gaming sessions. The cutting edge technology produces a black image insertion with backlight blinking effect which reduces motion blur during the intensive gaming sessions. The technology makes the graphics smoother by cutting down the blurring and ghosting during the fast paced game plays. This results in precise gamers' reactions and let you response quickly during an intense car chase or a fighting sequence in an ongoing game.
The games you play on the LG 34UC79G with a 144Hz refresh rate seems noticeably smoother when compared to monitors with lower refresh rates. The cherry on the cake is 1ms Motion blur reduction and Adaptive Sync technology that works in synchronization to deliver an optimized and immersive gaming experience. The monitors that lack these features don't stand a chance against the LG's latest ultrawide displays.
Be the first to attack with DAS Mode turned on
The monitors also come with DAS- Dynamic Action Sync mode that allows instant attack methods without experiencing any delays. The mode synchronizes gamers' senses with real-time scenes happening in a fast-paced game by minimizing input lag.
See the hidden details during dark scene with Black Stabilizer technology
Last but not the least, the monitors also feature Black Stabilizer technology that quickly optimizes monitor settings to reveal superior detail in dark scenes. With the feature turned on, the monitor's screens keep visibility intact even in dark scenes. The technology comes handy in action games where monitor senses dark scenes and helps make it brighter to avoid any fatal damage to your character during an enemy chase or a fast paced fighting sequence.
Experience flagship features in affordable price-point
While the above mentioned LG ultrawide monitors offer best-in-class gaming experience, the same can also be experienced with the company's affordable yet feature packed monitors. The range comprises of LG 24GM79 and LG24MP59G gaming monitors. These monitors also feature the above mentioned technologies such as 1ms Motion Blur Reduction, DAS Mode, Black Stabilizer and multiple Game Mode to offer lag free supreme game play.
