LG launches 10-bit (8+2) FreeSync UHD Display with USB-C

Discussion created by black_zion on Apr 2, 2016

This is a successor model to the LG 27MU67 with gamer oriented features such as a black stabilizer, motion stabilizer, and a suite of other features including FreeSync, but with an improved panel (AH-IPS), increased color depth (10 bit vs 8 bit), HDMI 2.0, and support for USB-C. Why is this important? Because a quick look at Amazon and Newegg shows there are only, currently, two UHD FreeSync monitors on the market. One is the Viewsonic XG2700-4K, and the other is the LG 27UD88-W, the latter of which brings USB-C connectivity as well as increased color depth over the former while also being less expensive. It's also better spec'd than any G-Sync display I've seen, and less expensive due to FreeSync being, well, free.
