Gamers, forget about multi-monitor setup just to get the dream 170-ish field of view because Samsung has the one monitor that will have 178-degree viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, covered. Meet Samsung CHG90 QLED Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor, the current world’s largest OLED gaming monitor that stretches a whopping 49-inch diagonally. CHG90 offers an insane 32:9 aspect ratio, in High Dynamic Range, no less, and boasts a 3,840 x 1,080 resolution and an 1800R curvature to ensure a seamless, immersive gaming experience.
Samsung Electronics said CHG90 not only provides larger field of view, but also greater depth perception over other gaming monitors money can buy today. With CHG90, you will be treated to unhindered view of the gaming world, which sure sounds like the perfect piece of hardware to include in a home simulator setup. Just imagine this: no bezel in between. That, my friends, is without doubt a pure visual bliss. With 49-inch ultra-wide screen at your disposal, it is as good as having two larger 27-inch 16:9 A.R monitors side-by-side, but obviously, unlike multi-monitor setup, there’s only a single power cable to deal with.
Besides immersive gaming, the crazy screen real estate affords ultimate multitasking flexibility which, thanks to Easy Setting Box, you can do so by choosing to partition the screen or display multiple screens of different sizes. And then there’s the Picture-by-Picture feature that lets you connect and view input sources “without degrading the original image quality,” Samsung adds. Speaking of input, CHG90 gets two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, and audio out connectivity options, so CHG90 pretty much has the connectivity covered.
Other key notables include a rapid 144 Hz screen refresh rate, 1 ms response time, realistic and lifelike colors with Quantum dot and HDR technology, multitude of positioning including height adjustments with VESA mounting to boot, and finally, it will, of course, have a game mode option. Samsung CHG90 QLED Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor was unveiled at Gamescom 2017, in Cologne, Germany, which runs from August 22 through to August 26.
The monitor will be available to EU markets after Gamescom 2017. As for the price, it is a bank-breaker, commanding an asking price of $1,499.99 in Stateside. Ouch.
