Samsung’s 49-inch Gaming Monitor With 4K Res and HDR
4K resolution is already the norm and if you want to buy a new monitor this is the best investment right now. Samsung’s huge CHG90 monitor not only supports HDR, it’s the first gaming monitor to receive VESA certification for it.
The CHG90 is the widest gaming monitor you can buy at 49-inches, offering a 32:9 aspect ratio and 3,840-by-1,080 resolution on its QLED panel. It also supports AMD’s FreeSync 2 and HDR as standard. But from today, Samsung can also claim the CHG90 is VESA certified using the DisplayHDR standard.
DisplayHDR specifies the quality of the HDR offered by a monitor rating it by luminance, color gamut, bit depth, and rise time. There are three levels: DisplayHDR 400, 600, and 1000, with the CHG90 achieving DisplayHDR 600 certification. Samsung conveys this as meaning HDR content can be “enjoyed in bright indoor lighting conditions.”
Samsung CHG90 has an Amazon listing for just $999 right now.
