LG and a few Twitch stars have partnered up to promote LG’s newest UltraGear Gaming monitors. The company is showcasing its latest hardware with Twitch streamers Imane “Pokimane” Anys, Celine “Starsmitten” Cheung, Angela “AriaSaki” Don, and Alena “AngelsKimi” Kim, and the 27″ model is already available online.
The new models are the 27GL850 and 38GL950G, and they are the world’s first Nano IPS gaming monitors, according to the company. They offer 1ms response time and NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, which is a fantastic feature that usually comes with a premium price tag. The 27″ monitor has an MSRP of $499, while the upcoming 38″ version costs $1,999. A rundown of the top specs on the 27″ model includes 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut with a factory color-calibrated display, HDR10, G-Sync and Freesync compatibility, and a 1440p 144hz display. The curved 38″ model offers the same specs on an IPS 1600p display, and it’s rated at HDR400. This model runs 144hz stock but boasts an overclock of 174hz.
The streamers will face off with opponents for a live-streamed, two-hour broadcast featuring their new set-ups. Fans can watch and interact by visiting twitch.tv/pokimane during the live-stream. Fans know “Pokimane” for her popular streams playing “Fortnite” and “League of Legends,” and she is one of the most popular streamers on the Twitch platform. She will be joining her Twitch friends to promote the hardware.
“Anybody can enjoy games,” said Pokimane. “There is a place for everyone on Twitch and products like LG’s monitors help make streaming possible. I’m excited to use these monitors and play with some of my best friends.” Throughout the live-stream there will be Twitch subscription “sub-bombs”, rewarding both the broadcasters and their fans for their victory.
“Gaming has given people from all walks of life the chance to both learn and express themselves through a unique outlet like no other,” said Michelle Fernandez, head of home entertainment consumer marketing at LG Electronics USA. “This is why LG UltraGear, in association with Twitch, is excited to have Pokimane show streamers how their monitor can provide an ultra-immersive gaming experience that allows personal expression to be displayed through this game-changing display.”
