Samsung’s New QLED Gaming Monitor Is Massive
Samsung has unveiled a new gaming monitor at Gamescom 2017 and it’s absolutely massive. The Samsung CHG90 QLED has actually been described by the company as the world’s largest gaming monitor that provides an IMAX-style cinematic viewing experience. It has been unveiled at Gamescom which is one of the largest gatherings of the gaming industry. The event is taking place in Cologne, Germany.
“This is the latest in our series of innovative gaming monitors designed to delight users and give them an edge over competitors while also increasing their comfort,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung.
Samsung CHG90 is a 49-inch ultra-wide 32:9 HDR gaming monitor with 3840 x 1080 resolution and an 1800R curvature for an immersive experience. The rapid 144Hz screen refresh rate can also be adjusted to 60Hz/120Hz when needed. It also boasts a 1ms response time, more realistic colors courtesy of Samsung’s Quantum dot and HDR technology as well as a dedicated game mode.
Samsung says that its new gaming monitor is equivalent to two 27-inch 16:9 monitors side by side. This means that users get impressive multitasking flexibility without having to deal with multi-monitor setups.
The design itself is minimal with a matte black body placed on a circle stand. It has a hinge with height adjustments, swivel, tilt and VESA mounting. Connectivity options include two HDMI ports, DisplayPort, and audio out ports.
Samsung will release the CHG90 next month.
