LG has officially entered the gaming laptop arena with today’s announcement of the 17G90Q, the company’s first gaming laptop.
Boasting the UltraGear label, a brand that was previously reserved for its premium gaming displays, LG’s UltraGear 17G90Q gaming laptop features an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q GPU, dual-channel memory, a dual SSD setup, and a vapor chamber for taming high temperatures. Its display comprises a 17-inch IPS panel that offers a 1-millisecond response time and refresh rate of up to 300 Hz.
“Sharing DNA with LG’s lightweight gram laptops, the 17G90Q has a streamlined, highly-portable design,” the company wrote in regard to its thinness.
“The new, slim laptop packs a large screen and an impressive 93Wh battery while maintaining a thickness of under 21.4 millimeters and a weight of less than 2.7 kilograms. The LG UltraGear gaming laptop features an aluminum casing that offers style and durability, while the winged UltraGear badge on its exterior clearly communicates the power and quality LG’s premium gaming brand is known for.”
“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 maximizes convenience and portability.”
LG’s first gaming laptop will initially launch in early 2022 for the United States and South Korean markets. The company is expected to share more about its upcoming UltraGear products during next month’s CES 2022 event, whose media days will begin on January 3.
