LG has a solid reputation when it comes to building sleek and light laptops, but today, the company has also ventured into the domain of gaming laptops for the first time with its new UltraGear 17G90Q.
LG's first gaming laptop is powered by an 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake H CPU, paired with Nvidia's RTX 3080 Max-Q GPU, a 93Wh battery, and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. It also features a vapor chamber cooling system and up to to 1TB of SSD storage via M.2 NVMe slots. Other notable specs include a 17.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080 and a 300Hz refresh rate.
LG claims that its latest piece of hardware borrows from its learning with gram laptops, which are very light by design. As such, its gaming laptop boasts a thickness of 0.84 inches and a weight of just under 6lb (2.72kg). As is common with gaming laptops, the keyboard is RGB too.
Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics, noted that:
The LG UltraGear gaming laptop has everything needed to tackle the latest high-spec games, delivering the smooth, responsive gameplay that all gamers want. 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 UltraGear 17G90Q will be available in the U.S. and South Korea in the first quarter of 2022. The firm will likely reveal more details about this laptop and its other products at CES 2022 on January 4.
