Samsung launched three new gaming monitors just ahead of E3 this year. All three are curved, and come with QLED displays with HDR10 technology.
The monitors come in three sizes, 27-inch Samsung C27HG70 for $599 (about £470, AU$795), 32-inch C32HG70 for $699 (about £548, AU$928) and finally the large 49-inch Samsung C49HG90 for $1,499 (about £1,177, AU$1,990).
The 27-inch and 32-inch gaming monitors come packing a 2,560 x 1,440 QHD resolution through the firm’s Quantum Dot LED technology (i.e. QLED) in a curvature of 1800R. The screens also boast a response time of 1 millisecond and a refresh rate of 144Hz. Both screens also cover a whopping 125% of the sRGB color gamut as well as 95% of the DCI-P3 gamut, aiming to please both gamers and media creators. Both screens come packing AMD’s latest FreeSync 2 to match frame refreshes with the frame rate put out by the given graphics chip inside your PC, and can pivot on their axis for vertical orientation.
The 49 inch variant however, comes with what Samsung calls a “Double HD” resolution, or 3,840 x 1,080. This display comes with a proprietary windows management tool that goes beyond what Windows 10 or macOS Sierra can provide, the Easy Setting Box. This can split all open windows in not just a grid of four, but in all sorts of combinations up to six windows at a time. Apart from not being able to pivot vertically, this screen is the same as the 27 and 32 inch variants on other aspects.
For ports, all three screens offer up one DisplayPort connection, two HDMI ports and three USB 3.0 ports, and are VESA wall mount ready.
Samsung is yet to announce a release date for the monitors, but the 27-inch screen is available now for pre-order on Samsung’s website, while the 32-inch version is taking pre-orders exclusively on NewEgg. Finally, the 49-inch beast is up for pre-oroder on Amazon and Micro Center.
