Samsung's new CRG9 is an impressive ultra-wide gaming display with FreeSync 2 support. This curved VA panel uses a 5120 x 1440 pixels resolution, offers a 120Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, 1000 nits peak brightness, and 178/178-degrees viewing angles.
Just like in case of the previous-gen 49-incher, the new CRG9 display has a LED backlighting enhanced with quantum dots that enable support for the DCI-P3 color space (as well as larger-than-sRGB gamut) and the HDR-focused AMD’s FreeSync 2. Speaking of HDR, the monitor fully supports HDR10 (but Samsung says nothing about Dolby Vision) and bearing in mind that we are dealing with a panel featuring a peak brightness of 1000 nits, it will likely carry VESA’s DisplayHDR 1000 badge.
The CRG9 features two DisplayPorts, one HDMI, a USB 3.0 hub, and a headphone connector. Pricing and availability is unknown. For reference, the 49-inch Samsung C49HG90 with 3840 x 1080 pixel resolution that launched in mid-2017 costs $1,499.
