LG 34UM67 FreeSync Ultra-Wide 21:9 Monitor Specs Teased

By Published January 03, 2015 at 12:00 am

CES officially starts on Tuesday of this coming week, but our meetings with hardware vendors will begin tomorrow. Part of AMD's showcase this year extends through its display partners, who will be exhibiting several new FreeSync-compatible displays following Omega Catalyst's launch.

LG's new FreeSync-enabled display is built under the Ultra-Wide form factor, meaning you've got a 21:9 aspect ratio as opposed to the more standard 16:9 ratio. The screen is 34” wide, but that's about all we know about it right now – resolution and price are yet unknown.

The company also announced a few other monitors, including a 34” curved UW display with a 3440x1440 resolution (34UC97) and 31” 4096x2160 wide display (31MU97) for fans of the 19:10 format. LG markets the 31MU97 more heavily toward artists and Photoshop users.

We may have more news on this at CES.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
