LG Unveils Nano IPS HDR, 5K Ultrawide Monitors

From ExtremeTech: LG is taking a pair of gorgeous monitors to CES, and they’re both loaded with goodies. The first is a 4K 32-inch display (32UK950) with LG’s new Nano IPS technology. LG defines Nano IPS as “the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen’s LED to absorb excess light wavelengths. This greatly enhances the intensity and purity of on-screen colors for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience.”

Other features include support for 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color space and the VESA DisplayHDR 600 standard (meaning the monitor’s brightness is as high as 600 nits and can display HDR content even in bright indoor lighting). It looks like a gorgeous monitor, with Thunderbolt 3 support and 4K daisy chaining as an option as well. LG notes that the 32UK950 can provide up to 60W for laptop charging, which should handle most laptops.

But while the 32UK950 is nice, it’s not the heavy hitter. That honor goes to the 34WK95U (pictured top), a 34-inch monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio and what LG is calling a 5K panel (5120×2160). That’s stretching the definition of 5K, which is normally defined as 5120×2880, and the ultrawide panel doesn’t have the same pixel density (11MP as opposed to 14.7MP).
