LG has thrown its hat in the ring with its very first gaming laptop. The UltraGear gaming laptop (17G90Q) comes with some serious hardware but is packed in a slim and lightweight chassis. Measuring 21.4mm in thickness and weighing less than 2.7kg, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop packs in the 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H processor with graphics processing handled by Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card. The 17.3-inch screen is an IPS panel that supports a full HD resolution with a 1ms response time and 300Hz refresh rate.
The laptop will come with 16GB or 32GB of RAM and has two M.2 SSD slots for up to 1TB of storage. Understandably, the laptop will also boast some gaming-centric features like the cooling system with a vapor chamber for sustained performance, per-key RGB backlit gaming keyboard, and pre-installed UltraGear Studio software for users to customize gaming-related options and track a variety of performance data – including CPU clock, GPU TDP and clock, and memory share rate.
Rounding up the spec sheet 2 Way speaker system that supports DTS:X Ultra, Wi-Fi 6E & Intel Killer Wireless, fingerprint sensor, an IR camera, microSD card slot, and a host of connectivity options like Type-C ports, HDMI and RJ45.
LG will showcase the laptop next month at the CES and will sell in the United States and South Korea, followed by other markets later.
