Samsung Malaysia has announced the arrival of the CHG90 Curved Gaming monitor. This monitor combines technologies like HDR, Quantom Dot composition, and high refresh rates to provide what Samsung believes will be the ultimate gaming experience.
The monitor is basically a 49-inch screen set in a 32:9 aspect ratio, with a 178-degree viewing angle. The massive size allows it to have an unusual 3840 x 1080 resolution; which is effectively two full HD displays stacked on each other (and called double full HD in this case). Then again, this isn’t quite 4K resolution yet.
As far as performance goes, the CHG90 brings with it a 144Hz refresh rate, allowing gamers to get the most from their gaming rigs. Especially when combined with AMD’s Free Sync to prevent screen tearing. It also ships with 1ms response time; reducing the amount of input lag during games.
In the event that the user would rather have two monitors, the CHG90 can engage Picture-in-Picture mode. Allowing it to function as two independent displays, each with a separate input. Even if those two inputs come from different devices.
All this doesn’t come cheap, as the Samsung CHG90 Ultra-wide Gaming Monitor sells for RM6,499. It’s set to appear in stores on 15 December 2017; just in time for some last minute shopping.
