LG’s Gram computers have managed to carve out a niche in the market thanks to their extreme lightness. These ultrabooks offer a good technical set in a body made of magnesium alloy that allows it to weigh only 1 kg. However, for more demanding tasks they may be a bit short. That is why the Korean manufacturer has launched the new LG Ultra, a series of computers specially designed with creators and designers in mind.

The new LG Ultra laptops offer a similar design to the Gram range, but with higher performance. They incorporate an NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card, a high resolution 16:10 IPS screen, and a battery life of up to 16 hours. It features 10th generation Intel processors, up to 16 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of storage. Let’s take a look at everything the new LG Ultra offers.

But the most interesting feature of the new LG Ultra is undoubtedly its graphics section. On the one hand by the addition of a graphics card focused on high-performance applications, such as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 and 1050, with 4 GB and 3 GB of dedicated VRAM respectively.

To take advantage of these graphics the LG Ultra is equipped with a high-resolution screen. The 15U70N has a 15.6-inch IPS panel with an FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. On the other hand, the 17U70N has a 17-inch screen with 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution. This translates into twice as many pixels as a standard Full HD screen, offering higher quality images. The panel format covers up to 96% sRGB and has a 16:10 aspect ratio.

The new models have a 72W (9,360 mAh) battery which, according to the manufacturer’s data, allows autonomy of up to 16 hours with only one charge cycle. On the other hand, the LG Ultra maintains a design similar to that of its Gram range siblings, with a chassis that this time is made of aluminum but has surpassed strict military durability criteria MIL-STD-810G of the United States.

In terms of connectivity, the new LG Ultra has 3 USB 3.1 ports and one USB-C 3.1 gen2 port for charging devices, transferring files, and displaying content through a single port. They also have a high-precision touchpad and a backlit keyboard with two brightness settings.
