Excel or Warcraft? It Can Handle Both

Samsung’s Widest Ever Desktop Monitor Combines Productivity and Immersive Gaming


June 9, 2017 Tech By

Lay your eyes on Samsung’s ludicrously wide QLED display: the CHG90 ($1,499). It’s the tech giant’s widest monitor ever and, according to Samsung, it was designed to reinvent the gaming experience.

The CHG90 boasts a stunning double full HD display (3840 x 1080) and a 32:9 aspect ratio, and it’s ideal for gamers who want to eliminate the bezel from their current dual-monitor setup. The CHG90 supports HDR and AMD’s new Radeon FreeSync 2 technology, which allows for low-latency, high-brightness visuals and exceptionally immersive gaming. It’s great playing exploration games, like Mass Effect: Andromeda, but, according to a Samsung rep, might feel like cheating when playing an FPS (because you can see more). Additional specs gamers will envy include a super fast 1-millisecond response time and a 144Hz screen refresh rate.

However, the CHG90 isn’t solely for gaming. It can open at six windows — it’s basically like looking at six monitors all at once. And it can also run two inputs at once, in case you want to play Xbox on one half of the screen and work Excel docs on the other half. The CHG90 is a showstopper. If you don’t have the room — or want to spend near $1,500 — on the CHG90, Samsung also announced 27- and 32-inch CHG70 monitors.

The 49-inch CHG90 is available for pre-order on Amazon — expect it to ship late July or early August. The 32-inch CHG70 is available for preorder exclusively on Newegg.com for $699, and the 27-inch display is available for preorder on Samsung.com for $599.
