Galaxy Book Pro boasts ‘gaming performance’ certification

Gaming, you know it? Yeah, but do you have a certificate? The new Galaxy Book Pro does, apparently, as Samsung officials just revealed this week. And what that means is that global certification authority SGS – formerly known as the Société Générale de Surveillance – deemed the Galaxy Book Pro series worthy of its “Gaming Performance” label.

The said certification is said to be reserved only for the most high-end machines and is solely concerned with display performance. Some of the highlights of the testing process preceding the certificate award is a blur length of only 1.4mm and 15.4ms motion image response time.

Are gamers really the ones the Galaxy Book Pro is aimed toward?

For added context, a typical laptop in this price range averages over 26ms in 2021, as per the Switzerland-based certification authority. Of course, a typical notebook does not come equipped with an OLED panel, a display technology Samsung truly mastered over the years.

The South Korean giant honed its OLED production craft on Samsung, but the Galaxy Book Pro line suggests the time has come for larger screens to enter the picture. It’s available for purchase in the West as of today, though some regional Samsung offices still offer a number of attractive pre-order bonuses until next Tuesday. With that said, it’s debatable whether the new Galaxy Book-series notebooks are truly geared toward gamers. Or rather: whether they can compete with more niche offerings from HP, Dell, and the like.

As for display excellence, the Digital Film Association also honored the Galaxy Book Pro family with its own Cinematic Experience label, praising the infinite contrast, perfect blacks, and wide color gamut coverage spanning 120% of the DCI-P3 color space – that would be the only one Hollywood cares about.
