The line-up of 4K monitors are slowly starting to build up and LG has made it better with a monitor that comes with an integrated Thunderbolt 2 port.
So far, only Apple Macs have sported this port and as with the tradition, other companies take time to adopt everything that the Cupertino company has done. But, things to be changing now because when they launched a Macbook with USB Type C, other companies are already following suit by launching their own version of motherboards, laptops and computers with the same port.
LG has taken the first step this time by launching a 4K resolution monitor which comes with an all new Thunderbolt 2 port. The device is now being displayed at the NAB show which is being held in Las Vegas.
For high quality video lovers and gaming enthusiasts, the resolution is a mammoth sized one at 4096 x 2160 pixels which is what the technology buffs love. Besides, users no longer have to rely on HDMI or display ports but can directly plug into the Thunderbolt port to connect their computers.
The company didn’t confirm whether this will be compatible with Mac systems but it should most probably be compatible. Many were complaining that they couldn’t find a 4K monitor which works with their Mac Pro for video editing among other applications which should now be solved with the launch of this LG monitor.
It supports 10-bit color depth and also has two internal speakers that could output at 5-watt powered by Maxx Audio. Thunderbolt 2 is a great port that could transfer content at 20 Giga bits per second and is much faster than the existing USB 3.0.
The problem is that this is a pricey port that can’t be integrated into every computer yet. LG didn’t reveal a price or release date for this monitor so far.
