It’s a great time to be a PC gamer – Steam sales, better graphics than on consoles, and today’s gaming monitors are sleek and ferociously spec’d.
Take this new gaming monitor which Samsung just announced yesterday, for instance. With an aspect ratio of 32:9, the Samsung CHG90 is the first “super ultra-wide” monitor in this new category, and it’s also a curved type display.
Most ultra-wide monitors have an aspect ratio of 21:9, while standard ones are generally 16:9. At 32:9, that’s insanely wide for a gaming monitor. I have no doubt that playing first person shooters or space battles in Star Wars games on this will feel extremely immersive, especially with that curved design.
The CHG90 is a massive QLED display too, measuring a whopping 49 inches and packing a 3,840 x 1,080 “double full HD” resolution. That’s like two Full HD TVs stacked side by side, so you can just forget about setting up dual monitors when you get this one.
This gaming monitor also supports HDR and has a high refresh rate of 144hz. It even uses AMD’s FreeSync 2 technology, which should provide smoother graphics performance for PCs running on AMD graphic cards.
However, with a hefty price tag of US$1,499 (around B$2,100), the Samsung CHG90 is undoubtedly for gamers with big wallets.
