Samsung Electronics today introduced what it is calling the future of gaming by unveiling its new CHG90 and CHG70 curved monitors. The monitors feature the powerful High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture enhancement technology typically reserved for televisions.
When combined with the CHG90’s ultra-wide design and the CHG70’s quantum dot composition, Samsung says this HDR integration produces a realistic, detailed picture that showcases games exactly as developers intended, and dramatically improves gameplay with crisper colors and sharper contrast.
“Gamers want to feel completely immersed in their favorite games, and our new monitors provide the most stunning visuals and realistic content to deliver the ultimate gaming experience”, said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Business at Samsung Electronics. “These QLED gaming monitors are the gateway to the future of gaming for casual, enthusiastic and competitive gamers alike, and we’re looking forward to building upon these game-changing technologies to further meet the needs of gamers, developers, and partners in the coming years.”
Samsung’s CHG90 sets the new visual standard for gaming displays by projecting a 32:9 aspect ratio and 3,840×1,080 double full HD (DFHD) resolution across a 49-inch screen. The CHG90 literally extends the playing field for gamers, with its broad design surpassing industry standards while simultaneously representing the widest monitor in the company’s gaming portfolio. The monitor delivers stunning 1,800R curvature and an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle, maintaining content visibility from any location within a given space. As a result, gamers no longer have to worry about the logistics, expenses and central bezel interference that occur when combining multiple smaller monitors together for an expanded view.
The CHG70 which is available in 27- and 31.5-inch variations, on the other hand, integrates HDR and quantum dot technologies, with a 144Hz refresh rate further helping to bring out the best in gaming content. This combination offers gamers a viewing arena that is brighter (600nit peak brightness), clearer (2,560×1,440 WQHD resolution) and more luminous, and which brings the slightest visual nuances to the forefront in extremely light or dark environments.
Both monitors arrive as the first Samsung gaming monitors to feature AMD’s new Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology. This frontline functionality eliminates the stuttering and tearing that often disrupt gameplay to drive seamless frame transitions. Likewise, Radeon FreeSync™ 2 supports a wide color gamut to showcase HDR content with twice the perceivable brightness and color than that offered by the sRGB standard. As a result, users can enjoy a smooth, low-latency plug-and-play HDR gaming experience without having to frequently readjust software or monitor settings.
Well, this is something every gamer should be really happy about as they wait for this latest Samsung gaming monitors to hit the market. We will have more details including the specs and price in the coming days.
