The LG 27GN950 is a gaming monitor that has it all: 4K, 144Hz, DisplayHDR 600, adaptive sync, and of course, RGB. But is it a better buy than the 240Hz Samsung Odyssey G7? Depends…

    Does the gtx 1660 suport display stream compression. And if it doesn't what are the limits. Can i run in 1440p with 10 bit color 144hrz. Or will it not do 10 bit, or will it not do 144

  • micah

    I can't wait for 1440p OLED monitors to become the norm (with the necessary GPU power being the norm too).

  • Feuchte Klinge

    Does this mean i can also use this Monitor at 1440p with 144hz without any problems?

    I should have know that they would be recommending $800+ monitors after I clicked on a Linus Tech Tip video

  • thegrimcrimson

    Pc gamers good hardware however monitors are lacking.

  • thegrimcrimson

    Might as well buy a 4k tv for these prices.

  • TechGoggles

    When they say on our unit, you know they got a premium unit

      True, but Optimum Tech said the same thing in his review, and he bought his with his own money.

    HELP! 2 days ago I bought this monitor and after 5 minutes of use I noticed something weird. I upgraded my "old" LG 27UL850 with this new LG 27GN950 and immediately noticed some very subtle horizontal lines/banding. And the weird part is that those lines are not all the time visible but most of the time they are...They include in the box 5k DP cable, tomorrow getting new 8k cable to see if that will help, also tried all the different connections and ports, updated monitors drivers and my gpu drivers,tried all LG software for this monitor and nothing... Does anyone has any idea what that could be? Or I just wasted my 950€?

  • Hanndrius

    LG34GN850 or MSI OPTIX MPG341CQR? Aesthetically I prefer the LG, but the MSI has a VA panel ...

  • ashiha

    Why do none of the reviewers on youtube ever discuss black uniformity or IPS glow?

  • ivartheboneless

    Hey guys i'm looking to buy a monitor (4k preferably) to get back into gaming. I was a huge RTS nerd growing up and i'd like to play some Starcraft, Anno series, Age of Empires and overall perhaps 80% RTS and 20% racing and old FPS (Battlefield1? :) ) games. What would be the best option available, as of now, oct 2020, money not being a consideration, since i'd like to make a top of the line rig to enjoy my last gaming years lol. I'm looking into 27"- 36" range, i don't actually know if the 27" 4k or the smaller res 34-36" widescreen would be a better bet? ive seen a range of monitors in shops but couldn't decide on it. Thank you

    It appears there will not be enough reasonably priced options for new 4k at 120 fps TV's and monitors that will be compatible and include all the new necessary features for the new consoles and new GPU's at 4k at 120 fps. Are there any new TV's and monitor options that will become available soon ... THIS YEAR??? It just sucks to spend all that money on new consoles and GPU's when there's just not very many good options for a reasonably priced TV or monitor to go with to tap all those new features. I wish the consoles and GPU's came with bundle options with new HDMI 2.1 TV and monitor options.

    Now a lot of people have been upset because this monitor doesn't have hdmi 2.1 Yeah it seems bad but I'd bet that this would still be good enough for next gen consoles If it's good enough for an RTX 3090 which is way more powerful than both the next gen consoles combined I don't see how this couldn't handle em

  • Christian05

    Would this be good to buy for the upcoming ps5 or xbox series x???

  • Jonas Griffin

    What would be your recommendation: LG 27GN950 or Acer Predator XB273KGP Which one is the better monitor in your opinion?

    This monitor doesn't seem to exist anymore. It only has "Other Buying Options" which means overpriced on 3rd party resellers and can't find it on Newegg

    Looks like a nice monitor to pair with a 3090 or 3080.

    Hey all.! I need some calrification. When I read on Nvidias website - it says: Gsync compatible: NO validated articfacts not certified for +300 test Not BEST HDR 1000 Nits. But if I buy LG 27GN950 it says it is g-sync compatible with VESA displayHDR 600. So I can Either chose to have gsync on OR display HDR600. How will this effect the experience? As a gamer I would most likely turn g-sync on, but I have no idea what colors I will see. Will it be like SDR or can it still display lifelike colors, but not validated HDR600? What will the downgrade be when I activate gsync? I aim to buy a 4k monitor that goes well with 3080 RTX - but most youtubers dont adress this issue in 2020: "Gsync compatible vs HDR" I hope someone can help me out here. Link to Nvidias explanation:

    I have an RTX 2070 super, i7-9700k & Asus ROG Strix Z390i Mobo. I am looking to get two of these monitors, but im concerned I wont be able to push 144hz @4k... would i most likely need to set the monitor to 1440P? at any one time only one monitor will be running at 144hz, but if they are both on and set to 4k while one is also pushing 144hz, will it be an issue?

    If this monitor had HDMI 2.1 I would buy in a heartbeat

      @Noah Miller 4K 120fps is what is being promised for the series x. They've already shown the less powerful series s running Gears 5 at 120fps.

    • Noah Miller
      Noah Miller

      @coolgamer17 it's a next gen console thing. People believe the console company claims that some games will get 4k 144fps. I'll believe it when I see it.

    • coolgamer17

      Joe I was replying to “Jon” not your comment

    • Joe

      coolgamer17 Ik it can’t but I never said it could?

    • coolgamer17

      Joe I don’t believe the series x can run games at 4k 120 FPS unless they really mess up 4k

  • Olly

    This at 32" and HDMI 2.1 would be perfect

    • Olly

      Direct linkrexx yeah but it’s for those who want to use an Xbox Series X/PS5 with a monitor, sure you can get an adapter but there’s only so many ports

    • Direct linkrexx
      Direct linkrexx

      @Olly display port 1.4 v2 exists

    • Olly

      Direct linkrexx it supports 4K at 120hz, rather than just 4K at 60hz on hdmi 2.0

    • Direct linkrexx

  • seppy

    If i downscale to 1440p on this monitor does that mean i can up the graphics to lets say high on a 1440p monitor and get the same frames?
