LG's 32-inch gaming OLED monitor with 480Hz refresh rate is imminent, with pre-orders live now

Darren Allan | Apr 26, 2024 2:30 PM CDT

LG revealed its 32-inch OLED sporting a 480Hz refresh rate back at CES 2024 in January, and the gaming monitor is now imminent, with the manufacturer having announced that it's in mass production.

LG's 32-inch gaming OLED monitor with 480Hz refresh rate is imminent, with pre-orders live now

The monitor offers a 480Hz refresh rate - providing your GPU can cope with that - at 1080p (which that lower resolution will help your graphics card with, of course). However, this is a switchable monitor, allowing you to transform it to 4K resolution with a 240Hz refresh rate for when you want detail rather than superfast frame rates.

While LCD monitors have gone as high as 540Hz, LG notes that at 480Hz an OLED panel complements that refresh rate with a faster response time and smoother overall feel to the picture as a result. That response time is rated at 0.03ms (GtG).
