HDR Enabled QLED Monitors Arrive in 27″, 32″ and 49″ Screen Sizes for Gamers
At the end of the month (June 2017), Samsung will release a massively big 49-inch (CHG90) curved gaming monitor for $1500, and two smaller sized models (CHG70) in 27- and 32-inch screen sizes that are each less than half the price. All three monitors feature High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture enhancement technology and QLED Quantum Dot technology first made available in the new QLED TV lineup launched at CES 2017.
The CHG90 delivers 32:9 aspect ratio and 3,840×1,080 double full HD (DFHD) resolution across an ultra-wide, 49-inch screen. This unique combination helps deliver game scenes in their entirety, with deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more vivid colors. The CHG90 also boasts a rapid 1ms response time, 144hz screen refresh rate, and advanced, four-channel scanning technology to deter motion blur throughout the entire screen, making the monitor ideal for first-person shooting, racing, flight simulation, and action-heavy games.
Samsung’s 49-inch CHG90 monitor delivers a dramatic 1,800R curvature and an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle, ensuring that content is clearly visible from nearly any location within a given space. The monitor boasts 125 percent of the sRGB color space and 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, for an exceptionally wide range of accurate color reproduction — especially dark reds and greens — that stay crisp and clear even in bright light.
The CHG70 (27″ & 32″ models) joins the CHG90 (49″) as the industry’s first gaming monitors to feature AMD’s new Radeon FreeSync 2 technology. This frontline functionality combines smooth, stutter- and tear-free gaming with low-latency, high-brightness, high-contrast visuals, as well as excellent black levels and support for a wide color gamut to showcase HDR content with twice the perceivable brightness and color of that offered by the sRGB standard. As a result, gamers can enjoy a smooth, plug-and-play, low-latency HDR gaming experience without having to frequently readjust software or monitor settings.
The new CHG90 monitor includes a height adjustable stand (HAS), allowing flexible height adjustment for improved viewing comfort. Designed for the most demanding games, the CHG70 monitor goes a step further with a dual-hinge stand that provides users more precise control over how the display panel is positioned.
In addition to Game Mode, a feature that optimizes image setting for playing games when connected to a PC or a game console, each of the new monitors include a game OSD dashboard, designed to blend seamlessly into game interfaces.
