The Samsung Ultra Wide Monitor: The Widest Curved Laptop Monitor On The Market
Samsung Geeks | On 06, Jul 2017
Samsung have excited, delighted and surprised fans recently with the revealing of their new ultra wide monitor, the CHG90.
There’s no kidding around with this thing, it is huge and on first appearance, you’re taken aback by the sheer size of the thing. However, it makes perfect sense for this tech giant to release something like this because, a lot of people have already been doing the same thing for years but with two screens. Samsung have simply created the obvious, but in a really awesome way. The giant VA LCD Panel monitor just makes your double computer monitor situation, into a seamless giant one screen reality.
Here are the Samsung Ultra Wide Monitor’s specs:
- Uses a superfast VA LCD panel which has a response time of 1 millisecond
- Has a 144 hertz refresh rate
- Uses quantum-dot technology providing superior brightness and colour compared to a standard LCD screen
- Uses HDR10 for superior contrast and colour
- Features AMD FreeSync 2 which ensures better communication between your graphics card and the monitor
- 32:9 aspect ratio
So Samsung has taken the idea of a double screen, ran with it and made it into a game players dream. At 49 inches across, gamers can feel truly immersed in their game, without any gap in the middle, and with the support of features like the AMD FreeSync2 and the super quick response time to make it a smooth gaming session every time. The fact it is also curved at the sides, means you have complete peripheral vision engagement, no need for head turning, just an amazing 178-degree viewing angle to enjoy.
Gaming isn’t the only benefit of this great new piece of kit though, you can split the screen layout using the software of the monitor so it is suitable for work and general use. Multitasking is really easy on this monitor, you could easily game on one screen and chat or browse on the other. When doing this, you don’t lose out on any of the beautiful HD graphics either because the entire resolution sits at 3840 x 1080 so you’re getting double HD.
CHG90 Monitor’s Software
The software that comes with the screen is a real plus, helping you manage applications during use, essentially supporting the usefulness of the screen beyond gaming. The software helps you to have up to six windows on the go all at the same time, which is a real novelty on such a huge screen. There is also a Displayport, Mini Displayport, HDMI Ports X 2, and USB 3.0 Ports X 3.
How much does Samsung’s Ultra Wide Monitor Cost?
If you are looking to buy the CHG90, then you’re looking at a meagre $1500 dollar price tag and a need to pre-order ASAP to get it any time soon. If you are happy to enjoy the same technology on a smaller scale, there is the CHG70 line which sits at a smaller 27 inches for $599 dollars or 31.5 inches at $699 dollars.
So whether you are looking to work on six spreadsheets at the same time, or have the most epic and immersive gaming session you’ve ever had, the Samsung’s Ultra Wide CHG90 Monitor is the perfect choice. If you have the funds to indulge in it, that is…
