LG Launches 27GK750F-B Gaming Monitor with a 240Hz Refresh rate and FreeSync

LG has added another gaming monitor to its line-up with buttery-smooth 240Hz refresh rate. The new LG 27GK750F-B features a 27″, 16:9 ratio TN panel and a 1080p resolution. The primary focus of this monitor is high refresh rates and low as possible response times, which likely won’t deliver the kind of color accuracy, image clarity, and vibrancy as some other panel technologies and higher resolutions. NTSC color coverage stands at an acceptable 72%.

This is better than most other competing technologies, and the 1080p resolution will help users’ graphics cards to deliver up to the 240 frames per second that this display can, well, display. Max brightness of the display stands at 400 cd/m², which is higher than the usual with this kind of panel. To add to the monitor’s gaming and smoothness chops, there’s also AMD’s FreeSync tech at play here, though it’s unclear if there’s a range in which it can be made available, as has been the case with most implementations of the technology.

The LG 27GK750F-B’s stand features height, tilt, swivel and portrait mode adjustments. Connectivity-wise, we’re looking at 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x DisplayPort 1.2a, and 2x USB 3.0 ports with quick-charge capabilities. The LG 27GK750F-B is priced at $550. Although of course, users need to have an RX Vega graphics card to take advantage of FreeSync.
