Samsung has just introduced a new and improved gaming monitor that comes in QHD resolution and it looks awesome.
The CRG9 is a 49-inch, curved desktop monitor that promises some of the best visuals in PC gaming. Compared to the old CHG90 model, the new CRG9 has some significant tune-ups. The CHG90 clocked in at a 3840 x 1080 resolution, where the CRG9 offers 5120 x 1440 resolution. This is sure to give a nice extra graphical boost to some of your favorite PC games.
Samsung will have some competition when it comes to 49-inch QHD gaming monitors, though. Both Dell and Philips have plans to release similar desktop monitors in QHD as well, so the CRG9 will have to match them to stay competitive in the PC gaming market.
The CRG9 is specifically built with gamers in mind. The model boats a 120Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, and AMD’s Radeon FreeSync 2 technology. The CRG9 will also offer HDR10 support, as well as a UDB jack, two DisplayPorts, and an HDMI port.
In addition to the new gaming rig, Samsung also announced the release of the UR59C. The UR59C is also a curved monitor like the CRG9 but comes in at 32 inches with a 3840 x 2160 4K resolution. Samsung has gone on record calling this an “industry first”.
No information has been released on the price or release date for the two new products, but we will probably know shortly as CES 2019 is right around the corner.
