LG today unveiled two new IPS monitors.

The first, dubbed the EA93, is a 29-inch panel with 2,560x1,080 resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio. In terms of connectivity, the EA93 holds up quite well, offering one DVI-D Dual port, as well as two HDMI ports. It also comes with USB 3.0.

Whereas the EA93 is being marketed as a product for entertainment-seekers looking for high-quality visuals and a movie-friendly experience, the EA83 is specifically designed for "graphics-intensive applications" required by filmmakers, photographers, and designers.

The EA83 has a 27-inch screen and a 16:9 aspect ratio. According to LG, it will come with 2,560x1,440 resolution and a host of ports, including one DVI-D Dual, HDMI, and USB 3.0.
