LG has taken the wraps off a pair of new 21:9 monitors that it will show off at the IFA conference in Berlin. Its latest three additions are something to behold and ready to debut at IFA and coming to the US this fall, they include the ‘world’s largest’ 38-inch curved 38UC99 that goes on sale in September for $1,500, a 34-inch curved 34UC79G due in October for $700, and the flat 34-inch 34UM79M model coming in November for $600.

The biggest of the bunch, the 38UC99, is capable of 4K-quality video, and producing ultra-wide images at a resolution of 3840 x 1600. In addition to being the world’s largest curved ultra-wide, this monitor is also the first of its class to feature a USB-C port, and comes with two Bluetooth speakers packed inside its body. It is also got the price tag to match — the 38UC99 will cost $1,499 when it launches in mid-September.

Next up is the 34-inch 34UC79G that LG is says is the world’s first 144Hz IPS gaming monitor. Touting it as a gaming monitor, LG says that a variety of enhancements have been made to ensure that gamers have the best experience possible. In addition to 144Hz refresh rate, LG has implemented things like Dynamic Action Sync and Black Stabilizer to ‘meet the needs of today’s gamers.’

The 34UM79M has integrated Google Cast support (plus built-in support for the multitasking, so you can Netflix while you work without giving up any screen space).
