Wonder about device driver support from AMD, and how good that 49" might be for photography - my two EIZOs are getting long in the tooth ... like me

OK, I'm getting really senile, since device drivers are for the graphics card ...

Hopefully calibration will be supported by CalMAN.

I've been using Photoshop for 25 years, plus shooting digital photos and video for 20 years, so that's pretty much the first thing I'm gonna check is how these displays look when editing photos and video.

What happens if you connect a 16:9 source like a PS4 Pro? Pillar boxes I guess? Kind of a weird AR even for PCs. Cool though.

Looks nice. I wonder how this will stack up against the ASUS 4k 144hz HDR FALD gaming monitor. I know that one was announced earlier this year but don't know if it's in the wild yet...

How would a 2.35:1 movie look on this?

Would it be letterboxed

It would be pillarboxed on a 32:9 display. 2.35:1 is about the same as 21:9.

At first I thought "awesome!" and then realized that the screen on the 49-incher will only be like 13-inches high and 1080... meh. I'm sure there's a market for it though.

*ahem* bring on the 240Hz OLED monitors! Nevermind...

These definitely aren't for everyone but the CHG90 occupies a unique niche. Pair that with one of the new AMD Vega GPUs and FreeSync, could be part of a really nice gaming setup.

I'm glad to see these are VA, too. I'm over IPS for PC gaming monitors, it's not desirable, at all.

I'm typing this right now on my 3440x1440 display. I love the thing. Any wider though and it wouldn't fit as well on my desk. Then take away a bunch of vertical pixels? Yeah no thanks. I think they should have made this a wee bit higher in vertical resolution. Of course if they doubled the height res then you just have a 4k tv. Which is better for anything I would want to use it for anyhow..

If AMD's Vega GPUs are decent I'd think about one of these in a 27", seeing as they have Freesync. I'm still using an HP LP2475w IPS that has a standard backlight, though the stand on mine is more adjustable than the CHG70 models. A nice VA panel with more color range than I have now does sound nice.

Think of it as a near field visual monitor.

I'd be interested in something like this around $500-700, even if it was used.

Hopefully Vega delivers. Right now you're stuck with mid-range at best for FreeSync. If Vega can deliver 4K gaming around 60 fps then it's a game-changer.

The 27" looks like a solid value, depending on how the backlight works, hopefully it's pretty uniform and not a hot mess like the Q7.

It's a shame that everyone seems to be going to 16:9 on monitors instead of 16:10. I'd rather have a 2560x1600 display, but the ones out there are all much higher priced than the 16:9 options.

I had the 34' LG 34UM95 21:9 3440 x 1440 Ultrawide and their 29'' 21:9 1080p ultrawide. the 34'' was incredible for movies but the horrible backlight bleed made it a deal breaker for me. and their newer models have the image retention issues so i gave up on ultrawides. OLED is what i am waiting so i hope someone makes the jump.

What games support 3840x1080? I can't recall any that I have played (mostly RPGs with the occasional FPS).

The monitors are marketed for GAMERS. The 49" is crazy expensive at $1.5K

Same height as a 27" 16:9 display, which is the maximum I would go for 1080P (text isn't great but video and gaming is fine). 806,400 less pixels to drive compared to 3440x1440, which is also 13" high for a 34" display. Any higher res would be brutal on the GPU so I guess they are trying to make it fit with current tech without having to build a monster rig. Nice that it goes 144Hz... can't go back to 60.

Lot's of games old and new, particularly FPS. You'd have to have the resolution set on your desktop before it became active in game. Don't play many RPG's but they could be limited, also RTS games like StarCraft. If not, there's always Flawless Widescreen...

the first problems is the number of HDR games which is pretty low on the PC. but someone has to start with HDR PC gaming screens and the 600 bucks for the 27 sounds fair.

the real specs need testing anyway...

I agree with you fully, I have a S2716DG and it's a terrible panel. But the technology itself is great, and there's no technical reason why there can't be G-Sync panels, but as you say the pricing...

That being said there's a market for it, I'd pay $1k for a 32" G-Sync panel with good image quality.

According this article 1%-3% of all monitors produced per year are gaming monitors with Asus ROG 35%, BenQ 22%-24% and Acer 17%-19% having the most market share. With the other brands like Dell, LG, Samsung, AOC, HP etc.. fighting over the remaining 20%. Dispite all the media attention it gets the curved Samsung 32:9 ''Gaming Monitor'' looks like a niche product to me.

do you really think there is a higher number than 1-3%?
most produced displays are cheap office screens. but that doesn't mean this market isn't worth it.
gaming is a gigantic market and e-sports is growing and growing.

and of cause the 32/9 is a niche product the price alone makes it one. but most games doesn't have any problem with 32/9 at least.

for a high FPS gaming screen you need really expensive hardware to use them properly on top of it gaming monitors are expensive too and usual useless for everything else than gaming this may change with these screen but that's how it is right now.

and i'm not 100% sure i would see these new Samsung screens as pure gaming screens. HDR is utterly useless and counterproductive for competitive gaming and slow VA on top of it even TN panels have a overdrive problems.
