Samsung’s New 49 Inch Super Wide Monitor (ARCHIVED)

We had some issues with our webhost and lost most of our old site, but this article was recovered. We were unable to recover the images… sorry for any inconvenience.

 

Yesterday Samsung launched the CHG90 display, an ultra wide 49-inch monitor. It features High Dynamic Range (HDR) and quantum dot technology that enhances the picture. It is also one of the first monitors to support AMD’s FreeSync 2 technology that “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” according to Samsung.

My favorite thing about the CHG90 has to be it’s 32:9 aspect ratio and 3840×1080 double full HD (DFHD) resolution. That is the equivalent of putting two normal 16:9 monitors next to each other and removing the bezel. You can pre-order this amazing 49-inch display on Amazon and at Micro Center retail stores for $1499.
