LG’s UltraGear Range Expands With The 17G90Q Gaming Laptop

Gone are the days when high-end gaming is confined to the desktop. Nowadays, laptops are capable of being portable while delivering high-quality performance as well, and LG is throwing its hat into the ring with the first-ever UltraGear gaming laptop.

This isn’t the company’s first foray into gaming gear, however, as it has previously released the UltraGear 34GN850 gaming monitor before.

The 17G90Q gaming laptop is a 17-inch machine with 21.4mm of thickness and weighs 2.7kg. The display is an IPS panel with a 1ms gray-to-gray response time and 300Hz refresh rate. No OLED? ASUS has that tied down. The laptop also comes with what gamers would expect from an upcoming gaming laptop – 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, dual-channel memory, and dual SSD setup.

With Intel’s 12th Gen processors already hitting the market, this model might be slightly behind the curve.

And finally, of course, there’s RGB lighting for the keyboard.

Gaming laptops, at this point, aren’t new. Lenovo, ROG, and Aftershock have all made their claim in this niche. Thus, while the specs on the 17G90Q are great, it’s par for the course for something labeled as gaming gear. The most important aspects for the 17G90Q will be its price, and how it performs in practice. However, LG has not announced that yet, so it remains to be seen if this gaming laptop is one that will wow the gamers.

For those looking for a potential upgrade, keep an eye out for LG’s CES 2022 world premiere on 4 January 2022.
