As we eagerly anticipated the next big technological advancement in the gaming monitor space, LG has decided to drop two huge ultrawide monitors – the GR65DC and GR75DC – with high refresh rates and picture-in-picture functionality.
LG is already well-established in this field, producing one of the best gaming monitors on the market in the 27GP850-B, but these latest models are targeting far more real estate in your gaming setup.
It’s easier to first point out the only difference between the LG GR56DC and GR75DC. On the GR75DC – which is $100 more expensive – you get an expanded I/O that features USB-C video input and the option to power connected USB-C devices with up to 90W.
Beyond this, both LG gaming monitors are the same. They feature a whopping 45-inch Dual QHD display, with a 5120×1440 resolution and 200Hz refresh rate via a curved VA panel. They also feature both picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture should to wish to connect multiple devices simultaneously. This means you could hypothetically run Baldur’s Gate 3 on both Steam and through your PS5 on the same monitor, at the same time, but who would do such a thing?
On the topic of gaming, another key feature is the GtG (grey to grey) response time, which in these LG monitors sits at 1ms, but this is on the ‘Faster’ setting, so may require a bit of legwork to set up rather than being the out of the box configuration. One feature that is set from the moment you turn it on, is the 119ppi, which is a figure that is on par with typical 27″ displays with 1440p resolutions.
The LG GR56DC retails for $799.99 while the GR75DC comes in a $899.99 and both are available right now.
