Like several other electronic brands, LG is certainly no stranger to laptops. At CES, the company almost always shows off the new LG Gram series of laptops, but this year, it looks like LG is heading in a slightly different direction with its laptop line, as they recently unveiled the LG ULtraGear 17G90Q, the company’s first gaming laptop.
If you’ve seen LG gaming monitors before, you’re probably familiar with the use of the UltraGear brand. With the UltraGear 17G90Q, this laptop will feature a 17.3-inch WQXGA IPS display with an aspect ratio of 16:9, and a resolution of 2560×1600, and will support a refresh rate of up to 300Hz, a very impressive spec, since desktop monitor specs are usually not that high.
Oddly enough, LG will be using an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H Core processor, a pretty odd choice actually since Intel recently announced the 12th Generation series for laptops. As for the GPU, this laptop will use the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q and will support up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of M.2 NVMe SSD storage.
The LG UltraGear 17G90Q will also come with a vapor chamber cooling system, a built-in fingerprint scanner, 6E WiFi support, and some ports from USB-A to USB-C, HDMI, Ethernet, and a headphone jack. It is not known how much this laptop will cost but is expected to be available in the global market early to mid-2022.
