GRL Certifies LG’s New 40-inch Thunderbolt 4 UltraWide (TM) Monitor
Thunderbolt ™ 4 leverages the innovation of Thunderbolt ™ 3 technology to deliver a truly universal wired connectivity experience. Thunderbolt 4 delivers consistent 40 Gbps (Gigabits per second) connection speeds, allowing users to view simultaneously 5K video, transmit USB SuperSpeed data, and charge their computer via a Thunderbolt 4 (or USB4) cable. It is the most comprehensive Thunderbolt specification to date, conforming to the broadest set of industry standards including USB4, USB 3.2, DisplayPort, and PCI Express, and is fully backward compatible with previous generations of Thunderbolt and USB products.
LG UltraWide ™ 40WP95C monitor features 21: 9 aspect ratio, HDR (High Dynamic Range), Nano IPS™ technology for richer color expression at virtually any viewing angle, and 5K (5120×2160) resolution. Interfaces include 2 Thunderbolt ™ 4 ports, a single DisplayPort, 2 HDMI ports and 2 USB Type-A ports. One of the Thunderbolt 4 ports can deliver up to 96 watts of power, so users can connect to the display and charge their computer without the need for a separate power cord.
“GRL has contributed to the success of many LG products, including the new UltraWide ™ 40WP95C, by testing, certifying and publishing their compliance,” said Sang Hyun Kim, Head of IT Customer eXperience Department for LG Electronics. “Based on their proven track record and experience, we are confident that GRL will help us assure customers that LG’s current and future Thunderbolt ™ products will deliver the performance and compatibility they expect.
“Since GRL was selected by Intel as the first Thunderbolt™ ATC in 2012, we worked closely with Intel to help hundreds of companies successfully adopt the latest Thunderbolt™ technology, ”said Holger Kunz, president of GRL world services. “We are delighted that LG has chosen to leverage GRL’s technical expertise in Thunderbolt ™, USB, USB Power Delivery, PCI Express, and DisplayPort to ensure their products meet rigorous compliance and interoperability requirements and capture a greater share of a rapidly changing and extremely competitive market. “
