Samsung has introduced a new lineup of curved gaming monitors that use QLED backlighting, similar to the company’s 2017 QLED 4K TVs. The QLED HDR gaming monitor family currently comprises of the flagship CHG90 and the CHG70 models.
The flagship C49HG90 monitor features a huge 49” VA panel with 3840 x 1080 resolution and 32:9 aspect ratio. Thanks to the use of quantum dot nanocrystals, the monitor covers the cinema-standard DCI-P3 color gamut. It also features support for the upcoming AMD FreeSync 2 technology, which promises to deliver a smoother HDR gaming experience. As you would expect from a high-end gaming monitor, the C49HG90 features a high refresh rate of 144 Hz. Samsung hasn’t specified if the monitor supports the HDR10 standard, so we will need to wait for more clarity on the same.
The CHG70 models are significantly more affordable than the C49HG90 and come in two screen sizes – 31.5” and 27”. Both models feature a lower 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution but aren’t very different from the flagship model in other areas. All the three QLED monitors boast a 5000:1 static contrast ratio, LED backlighting with Quantum Dots, 144 Hz refresh rate with AMD FreeSync 2 support, 1ms response time, 600 nits peak brightness, 95% DCI-P3 color gamut, 178-degree horizontal/vertical viewing angles, and an 1800R curvature. Connectivity features offered by the flagship C49HG90 includes 1x DisplayPort, 1x miniDisplayPort, 2x HDMI, and a USB Hub with 2x USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and a USB 3.0 Type-B port. The CHG70 models only feature 1x DisplayPort, and 2x HDMI ports, along with the same USB Hub and 3.5mm headphone/microphone jack.
Samsung has priced the C49HG90 at $1,499, while the 32” C32HG70 will cost $699 at launch. The 27” C27HG70 is the most affordable of the trio at $599. The C32HG70 and C27HG70 monitors are now available for pre-order in the US, while the C49HG70 will be available in late June.
