Samsung Unveils 49-Inch Curved Screen Monitor for Gamers

"Samsung will offer up CHG70 displays in 27" and 31.5" sizes, both sporting 2560x1440 resolutions.

Samsung introduced the new line, with all three offering a one millisecond refresh rate and 1800R wraparound curvature. They are also among the very first gaming monitors to support AMD FreeSync 2 technology. It also promises "deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more vivid colors". Combine this with HDR, Samsung's new curved monitors should be able to deliver twice the brightness and color than the sRGB standard.

To avoid screen tearing, the CHG90 also incorporates AMD FreeSync 2 technology.

The CHG90 boasts a stunning double full HD display (3840 x 1080) and a 32:9 aspect ratio, and it's ideal for gamers who want to eliminate the bezel from their current dual-monitor setup. It now looks like the company has broken out the wrack and stretched an ultra-wide screen to within an inch of its life.

Make room on your desk (and in the airspace on either side of your desk) for what may be the most over-the-top gaming monitor of 2017. The monitor delivers a dramatic 1,800R curvature and an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle, ensuring that content is clearly visible from almost any location within a given space. This helps in making sure that gaming content is clearly visible regardless of where the user is. The two CHG70 displays are not ultrawides, but more common 1440p displays, just with the FreeSync 2 update, HDR, curved, 144Hz refresh, and of course QLED. All the monitors have stands with adjustable height, pivot and angle, along with audio/microphone, HDMI, DisplayPort and USB 3.0 ports. This is absolutely an outlandish gaming monitor in a very astounding way and apart from being huge; the pretty dazzling colors of the monitor are quite catchy.

"The new models run $599 for the 27", $699 for the 32", and a gaudy $1,499 for 49".

The Samsung CHG90 is available for pre-order today on Amazon for $1,500, and is set to be released on June 30.
