The first LG gaming laptop packs a punch, but is probably very pricey

TL;DR

  • The first LG gaming laptop has been announced as part of the company’s UltraGear series.
  • The laptop sports a large 17.3-inch display with a fast 300Hz refresh rate, along with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card.
  • No price has been announced, but it is expected to go on sale in the US in early 2022.

The LG gaming laptop will be marketed as part of its UltraGear gaming brand, but it doesn’t really have a cool name of its own; just a boring model number (17G90Q). However, the purple-gray colored notebook has some impressive hardware specifications. It will feature an undisclosed Tiger Lake-based 11th-generation Intel Core processor, along with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card. It has dual memory slots for 16GB or 32GB of memory, a 1TB SSD for storage, and a vapor chamber cooling system to keep everything running inside. The device is powered by a 93 Wh battery. We suspect it won’t last as long as LG’s Gram laptop series.

While not exactly an ultralight laptop, the LG gaming laptop is still relatively thin at less than 21.4mm, weighing in at 5.82 pounds. It also has a two-way speaker system and Intel’s Killer wireless hardware with support for Wi-Fi 6E. It also has an RGB backlit gaming keyboard. Each key can be given its own color with the LG UltraGear Studio gaming software. It can also provide real-time hardware performance statistics such as CPU clock, GPU TDP and clock, and memory share speed.

The laptop is slated to launch in the US and South Korea sometime in early 2022 and launch in other markets at a later date. There is currently no work on the pricing, but you should expect it to be on the expensive side.
