Samsung super ultra-wide 49-inch CRG9 monitor

Share

"The second monitor is the "CRG9 49" Gaming Monitor" and is the world's first high-resolution super ultra-wide monitor, as Samsung calls it. Samsung goes the extra mile to use this long, wide arm to hide power cables and HDMI cables too, giving you a monitor that's just simply attractive and keeps your workspace empty and clean.

We have seen large gaming monitors from Samsung before so it's just more of the same. And the name Space Monitor is not referring to where it could be used but because it gives you space.

On top of the increase in resolution, this 32:9 ultra, ultra-wide monitor features a 120Hz refresh rate, 1,000 nit peak brightness, HDR10 support, FreeSync 2 HDR technology and 1,800 R curvature that feels as if it threatens to engulf you as you sit in front of it. But again, we've run into that "only so many different ways to talk about monitors problem".

It's created to save the space that a regular monitor stand takes up.

Samsung's Space Monitor isn't the only screen the company is unveiling, though, but it is the only one with a stand that won't get in the way.

We briefly tested this ourselves, and while there are some articulation limitations with this type of arm, it's a uniquely clean and minimalistic setup that should attract users looking for clean lines on their desk.

"After the CHG90 model released previous year, Samsung is adding a new model to the 49" Ultrawide 32:9 Gaming Monitor line with the newly announced CRG9. The arm can be adjusted to lie flat against a wall, tilted toward you, or totally hidden when the monitor is pulled down to the desk's surface. The CRG9 includes one HDMI port, two Display Ports, USB 3.0 and headphone connectivity options and is designed with. a smaller stand size for convenience and flexibility in every gamer's space.

Beyond aesthetics, the Space Monitor 27-inch model offers WQHD resolution, while the 32-inch model can display content in 4K UHD. Its 3-sided bezel-less screen is attached to a slender yet sturdy V-slim metal stand with two-prong base that encases cables and reduces its footprint on work space. All three monitors will be on display at the show, though they don't yet have release dates or price information.

If the UR59C isn't your cup of tea, Samsung is also producing an ultra-wide gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio, 120Hx refresh rate, 4ms response time across a 49-inch panel.

The display is available in dark blue-grey, and features a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm.
