LG 34″ 34UC98 with a 3440×1440 resolution and FreeSync Support

 

LG are set to release their new 34UC98 monitor soon, offering a resolution of 3440×1440, an IPS panel offering 8-bit + FRC colour support, view angles of up to 178/178 and FreeSync Support, specifications that would no doubt keep any gamer or professional user happy. 

This monitor if fully calibrated out of the factory, classing this monitor as a professional product, offering a flicker free backlight and low blue light modes to combat eye strain or fatigue. There are DisplayPort 1.2a, 2x Thunderbolt 2, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0 ports included for connectivity, with all video ports supporting the full resolution of 3440×1440.

Sadly the specification of this monitor specify a unimpressive FreeSync range which is 55-75Hz, giving gamers a mere 20FPS of wiggle room where FreeSync can operate, which in simply not good enough for gaming.

Ideally we would want a FreeSync range that is at least 40-75, or better still from 30-75 so that Radeon GPUs can use their Low Framerate compensation (LFC) technology, which allows displays with a max FreeSync limit of 2.5x or higher than the minimum to effectively change the limits from 1-max refresh by multiplying frames that are below the limit. A more in depth explanation of AMD’s low framerate compensation (LFC) technology here. 

This monitor is expected to be available soon in the US with a suggested retail price of $1199.99 in the US.
