LG unveils its first gaming laptop, the UltraGear 17G90Q, with NVIDIA RTX 3080 and an 11th generation Intel processor
LG is a brand rather known for its laptops dedicated to productivity, especially through its very light Gram 17. We do not necessarily think of the brand when it comes to models for gaming. Today, the company formalizes a machine that it itself qualifies as “the first portable gaming”, with resolutely top-of-the-range specifications.
The 17-inch LG UltraGear 17G90Q features an Intel Tiger Lake H processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, up to 32 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of storage.

This LG UltraGear 17G90Q also has a 1080p 300 Hz IPS panel and should offer quite an interesting battery life for video games or content creation thanks to its 93 Wh battery.
The connection is, for its part, well supplied, with many ports, including 4 USB Gen 3 × 2 (Type C) ports with Thunderbolt 4, another USB-C 3.2 2 × 1, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 1, one HDMI port, one microSD port, one jack and one RJ45 port. The machine also incorporates a fingerprint sensor in its power button as well as a 1080p webcam.

Regarding its exterior appearance, the LG UltraGear 17G90Q benefits from an aluminum chassis giving pride of place to gray and purple, for 21.4 mm thickness – which is thin enough for a 17-inch gaming laptop – and 2.64 kg on the scale – quite light, but below what the 17-inch MSI GS76 Stealth offers, 2.45 kg with a larger battery -.
LG hasn’t released official pricing for the beast, but this machine could be a good option for those who appreciate the LG brand and its understated style. The LG UltraGear 17G90Q is expected to arrive in the United States and South Korea in early 2022. LG will reveal more details during CES 2022 which opens on January 4 of 2022.
