Samsung has unveiled the world’s first “ultra-wide 49-inch monitor”, the company announced.
The 49-inch CHG90 display features QLED technology, HDR support, and is aimed at high-end users and PC gamers.
“These QLED gaming monitors represent the future of gaming for both casual and dedicated players alike,” said Samsung.
The new monitor will “leverage” Samsung’s QLED Quantum Dot technology to allow for “an exceptionally wide range of accurate colour reproduction”.
The CHG90 will also support AMD’s Radeon FreeSync 2 technology, for “smooth, stutter and tear-free gaming with low latency”.
Resolution comes in at 3,840 × 1,080 at an aspect ratio of 32:9 – which Samsung calls double full HD (DFHD).
“The CHG90 also boasts a 1ms response time, 144Hz screen refresh rate, and four-channel scanning technology to deter motion blur.”
