LG has unveiled three new 34-inch 21:9 monitors, including one with FreeSync, developed specifically for gaming. The UC97 is LG’s first curved 21:9-format monitor.

One flat and two curved

At CES 2015, LG will unveil three new 34-inch monitors in the ultrawide 21:9-format. One of the monitors has AMD FreeSync technology, which ensures that the monitor and graphics card stay in perfect sync, thus eliminating tearing.

The FreeSync monitor is called 34UM67 and is flat. LG says that the 34-inch panel has an exceptional wide field of view for a truly immersive gaming experience. It uses an IPS panel with Dynamic Action Sync for minimum input lag.

- “AMD FreeSync technology is an innovative monitor technology, based on free and open industry standards, to eliminate the tearing and stuttering that has plagued PC gaming for 30 years,” said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president of ISV/IHV Partner Group, AMD.

Many popular games, including Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and ArcheAge support the 21:9 aspect ratio.

LG will also release the curved 34-inch model called 34UC97. The IPS panel has a resolution of 3440x1440 pixels. This monitor was announced a few months ago but will soon be available with a Thunderbolt 2 input for Mac users.

Lastly, LG will release a curved 34-inch 34UC87M model for multi-monitor setups. LG is targeting users working with financial analysis and similar tasks that require huge screens.

No words on pricing but we will learn more at CES 2015 next week.
