LG Mobile devices are gone as the company decided to quit this particular segment after consecutive rounds of losses. However, the LG Electronics division is alive and kicking as ever. One time that the company has lost one of its divisions, it’s not a big surprise to see it exploring other areas. LG is known for launching laptops, even though they don’t come in the same pace as other companies. Now, it is going in a particular niche inside the computer segment – the range of gaming laptops. LG has unveiled the LG UltraGear 17G90Q today joining a trend dominated by other companies like ASUS, ACER, and Lenovo.
LG UltraGear 17G90Q specifications
For starters, the LG UltraGear 17G90Q arrives as a premium gaming laptop. So it offers some of the better specs you see on a gaming laptop. For instance, it brings a 17.3-inch IPS LCD screen which is big when we compare it to common-user laptops. It boasts a Full HD+ resolution with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. That may be a problem for 2K or 4K games, but the panel at least brings a 300 Hz refresh rate with claimed 1 ms response time and 99 percent of sRGB coverage.
Under the hood, the laptops come with an unspecified 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake – H CPU. It also boasts the flagship NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q GPU. Users can select a variant with 16 GB or 32 GB of DDR4 memory with up to 1 TB of M.2 NVMe storage. The LG 17G90Q comes in a dark Purple Gray Color. The device measures 21.4 mm and has a weight of 2.64 kg. It draws powers from a 93Wh battery.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the laptop comes with 1 x USB 4 Gen, 3×2 Type-C with USB-PD and Thunderbolt 4, 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2×1 Type-C, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2×1, headphone out, HDMI, Ethernet, MicroSD slot, and DC-in for power.
Other expected features include a fingerprint reader on the power button, and FHD webcam with a dual microphone, and an IR camera for Windows Hello. There is also Wi-Fi 6 with Intel Killer Wireless, Stereo Speakers with DTS X Ultra, vapor chamber cooling system, and UltraGeart Studio software for controlling system performance, fan speed, and per-key RGB lighting.
The new LG UltraGear 17G90Q will go on sale in the US and South Korea in early 2022. Unfortunately, pricing details are still unavailable at this point. We expect more details to emerge during the CES 2022.
