The maker of OLED panels isn't releasing an OLED monitor, but instead has focused on a new technology it calls Nano IPS, which from the description sounds nearly like it's a shift on how Quantum Dot technology works. This technology involves the use of nanometer-sized particles to absorb excess light wavelengths on the screen.

Unlike the Ultrafine 5K monitor which is 5120×2880, the extra pixels here over a 4K monitor are all horizontal, so it's still only 2160 pixels high, but you do get the 5120-pixel width that make the most difference for a lot of applications.

The first of LG's 2018 monitor lineup is a 32-inch, UHD 4K monitor. Like the 32UK950 above, it will have HDR600 support and Thunderbolt 3. This LG monitor can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, which is the Hollywood standard. The 34WK95U is said to come with HDR 600 support. LG model 32UK950 features the first Thunderbolt 3 docking display to support 4K daisy chaining, allowing a set-up of dual 4K monitors. Moreover, the ultrawide monitor features 4-side edge borderless design and slim Edge-Arcline Stand.

LG is going to showcase many new products at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 next month. Both of these displays will have the ability to charge a connected laptop over the Thunderbolt connection.

He also offered financial assistance to ISIS, offered to travel to Syria if needed, and said he was ready to die for "the cause". The note also seemed to express anger over President Donald Trump's recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Bringing up the rear is the gaming focused 34GK950G which looks to take the same Nano IPS panel technology from the 34GK950 only add in support for Nvidia's G-Sync tech, which syncs a panels refresh rate with the current frame rate being outputted by a Nvidia graphics card to eliminate frame tearing and give a smoother gaming experience. "With these latest premium monitors from LG, we wanted to communicate that LG is absolutely committed to delivering the best possible screen resolution and the best user experience on a desk or workspace", said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG's IT business division in a press statement.

All this and more can be experienced personally at LG's booth (#11100) in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2018.

LG hasn't revealed either availability or price, but don't expect it to be cheap.
