Samsung Reveals Super UltraWide Gaming Display More Monitors

first_img Monitors are important. Having a powerful desktop PC doesn’t do you that much good if you don’t have a good window into what’s going on in there. If you’re a professional, digitally illustrating or editing video footage, obviously you need a great monitor. But really anyone can benefit from a nice, crisp display.However, despite our appreciation for monitors, covering them isn’t always the most exciting thing in tech journalism. There are only so many different ways to describe how a rectangular screen packs in more pixels. That’s why we appreciate the more ridiculous monitors at shows like CES, monitors that might not be that practical in reality but sure are nifty to look at. In that spirit, check out “the world’s first high-resolution, super ultra-wide gaming monitor” from Samsung’s CES 2019 lineup.The Samsung CRG9 is an absurd, absurdly gorgeous curved gaming monitor. With a 49-inch diagonal, 5120 x 1440 resolution, and 32:9 aspect ratio, it’s basically two QHD 27-inch monitors slapped together. The generous real-estate allows for plenty of multi-tasking. So maybe if your game can’t stretch out to the full size you could use the rest of the monitor for your streaming or community software. The single HDMI port and two display ports, along with “Picture-by-Picture” functionality, let you view two video sources on the screen at once.Beyond the sheer size of this boy, the CRG9 is also just a solid monitor spec-wise. It has a 120Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, and AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR to optimize gaming performance. 1,000 nits of brightness and “Quantum dot technology” improve visibility. And the curvature is 1,800, if you still care about that sort of thing. It even includes different stand sizes.Samsung has more monitors to show off at CES 2019. The UR59C is 32-inch curved 4K display “designed from content creators.” Meanwhile, the Space Monitor, available in multiple sizes and resolutions, uses arms clamps to attach to desks and fold up flat against walls in different space-saving ways. But again, we’ve run into that “only so many different ways to talk about monitors problem.” A long boy like the CRG9 is just so much more interesting. However, you can pre-order those other monitors now, while the CRG9 won’t be available until later in 2019.For more monitors check out how Asus stitched three displays into one, gawk at another ultra-wide Samsung display, and look back on the daring heist of Razer’s three-screen laptop.
