LG introduces company’s first-ever UltraGear gaming laptop

LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled the company’s first gaming laptop (model 17G90Q), expanding the premium LG UltraGearTM lineup and bringing exciting news to gamers worldwide. Bringing powerful performance with a sleek design, the CES 2022 Innovation Award-winning laptop delivers impressive gaming experiences and the freedom to enjoy them wherever avid gamers like.

The new gaming laptop from LG features an 11th Gen Intel® Tiger Lake H processor, NVIDIA GeForceTM RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, dual-channel memory and a dual SSD setup. In addition to a 17-inch IPS panel that delivers a 1 millisecond response* time and a 300Hz refresh rate, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop delivers immersive, fluid gameplay for PC games with complex graphics thanks to the latest hardware. Also, the laptop’s cooling system features a vapor chamber that keeps it running cool.

Sharing similar design cues with the lightweight LG gram laptops, the 17G90Q is portable and slim, with a large screen and a 93Wh battery, while maintaining a thickness of under 21.4 millimetres and a weight of less than 2.7 kilograms. The LG UltraGear gaming laptop features an aluminium casing that offers syle and durability, while the winged UltraGear badge on the exterior is a nod to the premium gaming products LG is known for.

The LG gaming software feature on the 17G90Q, LG UltraGear Studio, optimises the gaming experience by allowing users to customise gaming-related options and track a variety of performance data – including CPU clock, GPU TDP and clock, and memory share rate – in real-time. Additionally, users can choose and apply a different colour to each key of the laptop’s RGB keyboard.

Along with personalisation options, speed and premium picture quality, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop delivers realistic, three-dimensional sound with a built-in two-way speaker system. Supporting DTS:X Ultra, the speakers are designed to accurately convey the directionality and location of sounds in the gaming environment, helping players to find their teammates and track down their enemies with ease. What’s more, the 17G90Q comes with Intel® Killer Wireless, which helps deliver a fast, stable network connection for frustration-free online gaming experiences.

“The LG UltraGear gaming laptop has everything needed to tackle the latest high-spec games, delivering the smooth, responsive gameplay that all gamers want,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Our first-ever gaming laptop, the 17G90Q differentiates itself from competing products with its premium hardware, generous, high-quality screen, and a sleek, lightweight design that maximises convenience and portability.”

The first gaming laptop from LG will initially be available in the United States and South Korea from early 2022 with other markets to follow. To learn more about the LG UltraGear lineup, visit starting at 08:00 PST on January 4 / 03:00 AEDT on January 5.
