Forget three-screen setups, Samsung parted the skies for a big solution: The ultra-wide curved screen display.
At 49-inches, the display is massive. Its curved design allows for excellent viewing angles. With a display this big, there’s a lot of room for you to run multiple tasks to your desktop’s limit.
It features HDR, 144Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync 2, which gives you great gaming experience. Aspect ratio measures at 32:9.
Angelo Mendoza, Samsung PH’s Display Solutions Product Manager said in a previous event that, “The curved gaming monitor is the gateway to the heart of exciting action, providing intense gameplay that engages the senses and broadens horizons.”
In many ways he isn’t wrong. The large screen format provides more details in the games you play. First, we tested the monitor with some of best games the decade has the offer: BioShock Infinite and Witcher 3, along with newer games like Far Cry 5 and the more recent God of War in the PS4. The experience was nothing short on being spectacular, as we were able to get a much wider view of the screen, seeing angles that are not normally seen on a smaller display. It’s far efficient than having three monitors in front of you as the 49-inch display offers seamless viewing.
Samsung’s QLED technology enhances the Curved Gaming Monitor, arming it with the new Metal Quantum dot. This provides traditional dots with a metal core to make the color on screen more stable. Games will appear more realistic as it delivers a spectrum of accurate hues and tones.
There would be no need to constantly adjust the brightness to see the deepest shadows and silhouettes of the game as the Curved Gaming Monitor supports High Dynamic Range (HDR). It also supports Radeon FreeSync 2 technology that provides low latency while supporting high-brightness pixels, excellent black levels, and a wide color gamut for smooth gameplay and advanced pixel quality.
Its vertical alignment (VA) panel is built for speed with a super-fast 1ms motion picture response time and 144Hz screen refresh rate versus a conventional monitor’s 60Hz. This allows the screen to keep up with rapid movement and give a crucial split-second advantage to the player. You can now spot your enemies faster as it provides a quicker transition of image.
Take multitasking to the next level with the Easy Setting Box, which lets you split your screen into multiple displays of different sizes. You can watch a gameplay tutorial in one half of the screen while playing it out on the other one, thereby maximizing the massive screen real estate.
Enjoy all of these features and play all you want with the eye-saver mode that helps reduce eye strain. It also cuts down on penetrative blue light, providing you with greater visual comfort.
