While 32-inches may not be as large as some of the best OLED gaming monitors heading our way, it provides a larger, alternative option to similar displays such as the ASUS TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A.

The new monitor from LG also boasts VESA certified DisplayHDR 1,000 which means this display should offer a dynamic contrast with brighter whites and deeper blacks and up to 1,000 nits of peak brightness.

Interestingly, the Nano IPS display is set to feature ATW Polarizer technology which should help improve colour fidelity and enhance the clarity of darker content.

While this monitor may seem akin to the upcoming ViewSonic ELITE XG321UG which offer similar specs via a DisplayPort 1.4 connection, this display also includes HDMI 2.1 capabilities.

This means the LG UltraGear 32GQ950 could be an excellent choice for next-gen console gamers and allows you to play in 4K at 120Hz when playing on the PS5 or Xbox Series X.

LG has also stated in their announcement of the monitor that it will include variable refresh rate technology, which should help reduce screen tearing and help deliver fast fluid gameplay.

For those looking for high speed, smooth gameplay alongside stunning visuals, we think this could be an excellent choice to consider.
