LG has officially announced its “first gaming laptop,” the UltraGear 17G90Q. This first gaming laptop by LG has a combination of an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card with configuration up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage
The company’s focus has been on office productivity rather than offering a top-of-the-line gaming experience.
Some Specs of LG’s “First Gaming Laptop”
LG lists two laptops on its website equipped with Nvidia GPUs, but both have the lower-powered GTX 1650. However, the RTX 3080 found inside the new UltraGear 17G90Q is the fastest GPU Nvidia currently offers for laptops including a 1080p IPS display with a 300Hz refresh rate, a 93Wh battery, an RGB keyboard, a fingerprint sensor on the power button, and a 1080p webcam. Its casing is made from aluminum, and the laptop comes in a fetching purple-gray color.
Even though the LG UltraGear 17G90Q is meant for gaming, it’s still equipped with a bevy of physical ports. There are two USB-C ports (including one USB 4), two USB-A ports, a headphone jack, an HDMI port, and Ethernet. Even there’s a microSD card slot for good measure. The Charging is done via a dedicated DC input.
Yet the Price of the 17G90Q is to be announced, but LG will be announcing more details at CES on January 4th. hence this first gaming laptop by LG will first release in the US and South Korea in early 2022.
