Pre-orders are now live for both displays.
Samsung has announced the launch of its C34J791 and C43J890 monitors. Both models feature curved-screen designs and VA LCD panels.
"Over the years, Samsung has revolutionized the viewing experience for professionals alike," said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "The CJ79 is our latest endeavor in taking curved monitors to the next level that highlights our commitment to innovation. The addition of Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity aligns to that vision and connects customers to infinite possibilities."
The C34J791 features a 34-inch QLED LCD panel with an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio, a 1,500R curvature, a 178-degree viewing angle, a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, and a QHD resolution of 3440×1440. In addition, the display offers support for 125 percent of the sRGB color spectrum.
Likewise, the monitor is the first curved model to include Thunderbolt 3 which supports processing speeds of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) for connectivity across an array of docks, displays, and peripherals like Macs, USB type-C laptops, storage drives, and external graphics cards. Up to 85 watts (W) of laptop charging power can also be enabled via the Thunderbolt 3 connection. Finally, the screen also offers a few features geared toward gamers, including a four milliseconds (ms) response time, and a Game Mode with a dynamic gamma setting.
"The Thunderbolt™ 3 ecosystem continues to expand and deliver innovative products with outstanding performance." said Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel. "It is timely that Samsung, a leading manufacturer, is featuring their CJ79 QLED Monitor with Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity. This new CJ79 QLED Monitor delivers the performance while enabling a powerful new display with integrated docking capabilities for a simple and easy to use solution."
Meanwhile, the C43J890 features a 43-inch panel with a super ultra-wide 32:10 aspect ratio, a 1,800R curvature, and a resolution of 3840 x 1200. In addition, the display includes a built-in KVM switch, USB-Type C ports, and integrated stereo speakers.
