Samsung unveils three new swanky QLED gaming monitors with support for HDR and FreeSync 2
After launching high-end QLED TVs earlier this year, Samsung is ready to debut its second-generation gaming monitors based on QLED technology. The company has unveiled three new gaming monitors: C49HG90, C32HG70, and C27HG70. All these QLED monitors have curved VA panels with support for High Dynamic Range (HDR with 600 nits brightness) and AMD’s new FreeSync 2 technology. They have height adjustable stands as well, with support for swivel, tilt, and wall mount.
The C49HG90 (CHG90 series) is a 49-inch ultrawide QLED gaming monitor with 32:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 3840 x 1080 pixels. The CHG70 series consists of two monitors – C27HG70 (27-inch) and C32HG70 (32-inch) – with 16:9 aspect ration and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. All these monitors have a curvature of 1800R, 1ms response time, an ability to reproduce over a billion colors, and a refresh rate of 144Hz with four-channel scanning technology.
All three monitors have a 95% DCI-P3 coverage and 125% sRGB coverage. They also feature Eye Saver and Flicker Free display modes. Similar to Samsung’s previous generation curved gaming monitors, these new models support various Game Color Modes (FPS, RTS, etc). The 49-inch monitor has one Display Port, one Mini-Display Port, two HDMI ports, one audio in port, and one headphone jack. There’s one USB 3.0 upstream port and two USB 3.0 downstream ports.
“These QLED gaming monitors are the gateway to the future of gaming for casual, enthusiastic and competitive gamers alike, and we’re looking forward to building upon these game-changing technologies to further meet the needs of gamers, developers and partners in the coming years,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Business at Samsung Electronics. The company has also worked with EA studio DICE and Ghost Games to ensure optimal viewing experience while playing Star Wars Battlefront II and Need For Speed Payback.
“We applaud Samsung Electronics for launching the first FreeSync 2-capable displays, and believe these gorgeous monitors should be on every gaming enthusiast’s must-have list,” said Scott Herkelman, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Gaming, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. Additionally, all these monitors have recently received validation to support HDR using Nvidia’s graphics cards. Hit the source link to see detailed specifications of these three monitors.
