LG UltraGear 17G90Q, the new lightweight and powerful gaming laptop

LG UltraGear 17G90Q

The South Korean company has surprised us with the LG UltraGear 17G90Q, a 17.3-inch gaming laptop that combines an elegant and discreet design with a high-quality premium finish, and a very powerful hardware configuration. We will talk a little later about its components, but I already told you that we are before a team that will be able to move any current title with maximum quality and ray tracing activated.

Externally, the LG UltraGear 17G90Q is emerging as fairly light equipment for the category, and the format, in which it is framed since, as we have anticipated, it mounts a 17.3-inch panel and has a configuration of high-end hardware. This requires integrating a high-performance cooling system, with all that this implies in terms of occupied space and weight. Its weight is 2.64 kilograms, and it measures 400 x 271.6 x 20.9 ~ 21.4 mm.

As we can see in the cover image, the LG UltraGear 17G90Q has a metallic finish and adopts a very angular line, a finish that I particularly like a lot. The keyboard features individual per-key RGB LED lighting, which means it offers a high degree of customization, and the touchpad is integrated right at the bottom (in the center position).

On the lid of the LG UltraGear 17G90Q, we can see the LG logo, which seems to also have an RGB LED lighting system. The chassis is made of aluminum, a material that, as many of our readers will know, is considered “premium”, not only because of the sensations it transmits to the touch, but also because it is light and resistant.

As we anticipated, the LG UltraGear 17G90Q ranks at the top of the industry, thanks to that combination of Intel Tiger Lake-H CPUs and GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile Max-Q GPUs, although LG has not given exact details on the exact models it thinks. mount and we do not know the specific TDP of that GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile Max-Q. They are important nuances since, in the end, they will determine, to a large extent, the performance that they will be able to offer.

We also do not know the price that the LG UltraGear 17G90Q will have, but we do know that it will arrive first in the United States and North Korea during the first quarter of 2022 and that from that date it will be extended to other markets.
