Samsung releases a 49-inch gaming monitor!

Samsung is offering a PC monitor bigger than a lot of TVs: nothing less than 49-inch wide that, along with its curves and an aspect ratio very different from the usually used, gives it an outstanding look.

The Samsung LC49HG90DMNXZA just exceeds every standard parameter for monitors. Besides its incredible size (120 cm in width), it has a 32:9 aspect ratio, a native 3840 X 1080 pixels resolution and a 1800R curved QLED panel with the quantum dot technology that Samsung uses in its latest-gen displays.

It terms of gaming, there is the AMD’s FreeSync synchronization technology support, a 144 Hz refresh rate, a 1 ms response time, a 20-step “Black Equalizer”, a technology to limit blue light emissions for when the monitor is used during long periods of time, and factory-calibrated optimized adjustments for any gaming genre.

Additionally, the monitor features support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), a height-adjustable stand and an OSD dashboard for display settings.

It is available via retailers like Amazon at $1,499. A truly amazing monitor that can perfectly replace dual monitor setups, but it requires a huge investment and both the resolution and the aspect ratio are evidently not for general users.
