LG will introduce the world’s first 21:9 gaming monitor compatible with AMD FreeSync technology at CES this year, says the company. The UltraWide Gaming Monitor is the company’s first 21:9 monitor specifically developed for graphics-intensive gaming, says LG. AMD’s FreeSync technology reduces the screen tearing that occurs when the monitor and graphics card are out of sync. Games that currently support support 21:9 resolution include Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and ArcheAge .
