Three new HDR displays geared toward gaming have been detailed.
Samsung has announced the latest additions to its gaming monitor lineup. The new QLED display collection includes the ultra-wide 49-inch CHG90, the 27-inch CHG70 , and the 32-inch CHG70.
"Gamers want to feel completely immersed when they play, and our new monitors provide the most stunning visuals to deliver the ultimate gaming experience," said Andrew Sivori, VP, Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "These QLED gaming monitors represent the future of gaming for both casual and dedicated players alike, and we're confident that our innovative design and state-of-the-art features will enhance the entire gaming arena."
All three displays use QLED Quantum Dot technology (also available in the company's 2017 QLED Ultra HD TV lineup) with a new metal core and support for 125 percent of the sRGB color space and 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. Likewise, the monitors all offer HDR (high dynamic range) capabilities with 600 nits of brightness, AMD's new Radeon FreeSync 2 technology, a curvature of 1,800R, a 178-degree viewing angle, a rapid 1ms response time, and a 144hz screen refresh rate. In addition, the 49-inch CHG90 model features a resolution of 3,840x1,080 and an ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio, while the CHG70 models feature a resolution of 2560x1440 and a 16:9 aspect ratio.
The 49-inch CHG90 is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com and at local Micro Center retail stores for an MSRP of $1,499.
