Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has launched the ultra-wide 49-inch CHG90 display and the 27- and 32-inch CHG70 monitors, unveiling the future of virtual competition and expanding its gaming portfolio.
The monitors feature powerful High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture enhancement technology typically reserved for televisions and large-format displays, reports Business Wire.
This HDR integration, when combined with quantum dot composition, produces a realistic, detailed, and colorful presentation that showcases games exactly as developers intended, dramatically improving picture quality and gameplay with crisper colors and sharper contrast.
“Gamers want to feel completely immersed when they play, and our new monitors provide the most stunning visuals to deliver the ultimate gaming experience,” said Andrew Sivori, VP, Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics America.
“These QLED gaming monitors represent the future of gaming for both casual and dedicated players alike, and we’re confident that our innovative design and state-of-the-art features will enhance the entire gaming arena,” he added.
The new monitors all leverage Samsung’s revolutionary QLED Quantum Dot technology, which delivers a new metal core and supports 125 percent of the sRGB color space and 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, for an exceptionally wide range of accurate color reproduction to bring the content, from gaming to web browsing to document work, come alive on the screen.
The CHG70 and CHG90 become the industry’s first gaming monitors to feature AMD’s new Radeon FreeSync 2 technology, enhancing gameplay visuals further, reports Business Wire.
With this frontline functionality, gamers can now enjoy a smooth, plug-and-play, low-latency HDR gaming experience without having to frequently readjust software or monitor settings.
“We’re incredibly proud how far Radeon FreeSync technology has come in the past two years, with well over 150 displays now shipping in the market,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, gaming, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD.
“We applaud Samsung for launching the first FreeSync 2-capable displays, these gorgeous monitors should be on every enthusiast gamers’ must-have list,” he added.
The CHG90 has also set the new visual standard for gaming displays by projecting a sharp 32:9 aspect ratio and 3,840x1,080 double full HD (DFHD) resolution across an ultra-wide, 49-inch screen. This unique combination helps deliver game scenes in their entirety, with deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more vivid colors.
It also boasts a rapid 1ms response time, 144hz screen refresh rate, and advanced, four-channel scanning technology to deter motion blur throughout the entire screen. This makes the monitor ideal for first-person shooting, racing, flight simulation, and action-heavy games.
Samsung has partnered with EA studio DICE and Ghost Games to prepare the CHG90 and CHG70 monitors with rigorous tuning to ensure optimal HDR picture quality to prepare these latest monitors for the larger gaming industry for HDR content.
“We’re delighted to work closely with Samsung’s monitor team to optimise the CHG90 and CHG70 monitors for our games, which is vital so that our new game title Star Wars Battlefront II, which will be released later in the year, can be mirrored on these HDR monitors the way our game developers intended,” said Oskar Gabrielson, general manager of DICE.
“Here at Ghost Games, we always look at the latest technology that helps present Need for Speed™ in the best way possible and constantly look to push the boundaries. Technologies like HDR enable us to deliver an ever-greater emotional and immersive experience for our players. Samsung’s HDR monitors allow Need for Speed Payback to be exactly that,” said Marcus Nilsson, executive producer at Ghost Games.
