Samsung has unveiled a 49 inch gaming monitor which looks to take gaming visuals to a new level.

We will see them in action during our Ubisoft meeting next week. They sound great.

Cool, also one at E3 for those fortunate to go:

Attendees of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 next week will get an early look at the 32-inch CHG70 display at the Ubisoft Booth 1623.

Edit: Doh it was already in the article :(

The resolution is jacked up. Too few games support ultra wide or in this case ultra ultra ultra ultra wide.

Goldby529d ago

I like the idea of Ultra Wide, but with spotty support, it makes hard to want to chose it over wide screen (would be nice if the next gen consoles supported Ultra Wide). It just leaves too much screen real estate unused.

A lot of modern games do support ultra wide though, in fact I haven't played a title without ultra wide support in quite a while

The article doesn't even include a picture of the damn thing.

What's the point of having a screen this wide? You'd have to turn your head back and forth to see both edges, that seems really awkward and weird.

I mean, I have a 75 inch TV, but I sit 12 feet away not at a desk right in front of it.

kent80082007528d ago

I think it's like having a duo or triple screen setup without the frame in between, it gives you more immersion. I for one am definitely gonna pick one up.

Articuno76528d ago (Edited 528d ago )

The difference with a TV is it is uncomfortable to view up close as you can't take it all in vertically (meaning pertinent things you are supposed to see require you to keep craning your neck). But an ultra-wide (or ultra-ultra-wide) monitor maintains a vertical size that is comfortable, whilst filling your peripheral vision with visuals from the game (instead of those nice curtains you have behind the screen, or your wall).

Samsung and their QLED name trying to confuse people it's OLED lol.

Plus I rather have a full UHD monitor with HDR than a 3840X1080 one.

Garethvk529d ago

That is always the point with the 4K monitors and large monitors but Some just prefer a monitor. I saw Westinghouse 56 in Smart TVs 4K at 369.99 at Best Buy yesterday. I am sure for most that would work just fine for gaming.

The 10th Rider529d ago

Not really. Input lag is the issue with TVs. Most PC gamers that are invested enough in PC gaming to be interested in such a large screen would be turned off by the input lag. For PC gaming you'd be far better off with a similarly priced monitor than a TV.

ImGumbyDammit529d ago (Edited 529d ago )

No. The lag on those really cheap TV's would make playing on 4K, like a FPS for example, unbearable and not worth the experience. Not saying all low priced TV's just double check when a dealing with a low price of $369 for a large 56" 4K TV. It most likely has cut corners and the first thing I would look at would be the lag. Does it have built-in game mode? Plus that 56" probably doesn't even have HDR (and that makes great big difference playing games on 4K). Even a much smaller gaming monitor, say 27", that sells for $369 I would be suspicious of it as well. Any good 27" 4K gaming monitors are just not naturally that cheap. You have to be even more careful about dedicated computer monitors than you do TV's.

Takwin529d ago

Nope, I've tested them out. Cheap 4K TVs (read: almost all of them except Samsung and LG) have really bad lag, which is bad for consoled and unbearable for PC gamers used to 60-144+ hz monitors.

nX529d ago

^I'm gaming on a 65" QLED for 3 months now and didn't have any problems with input lag yet.. and I'm playing a lot of different games including racers and FPS.

Only professional gamers should feel a difference between a good TV (there are bad ones, of course) and a good gaming monitor.

I have a 3440x1440 and I love it. I still get the black bars on the side for some games, but it doesn't bother me. However, 3840x1080 is really stretching it for me(pun intended). There's not going to be that much support for such a wide screen.

ninsigma529d ago

Almost may as well be a TV!

MegamanXXX529d ago

$1499? I got a 55 inch Samsung ks8000 for 950.

ninsigma529d ago

Good price you got!
Paid 1999 euro for an lg 55ugh950v. Good bye money :(

Ashunderfire86529d ago

Same here love that tv! I have it too.

ziggurcat528d ago

The KS8000 in Canada is still $2000... consider yourself lucky.

MegamanXXX528d ago (Edited 528d ago )

@ninsigma @Ziggurcat

It was a spring sale on BH photo a few months ago I didn't hesitate

This would be great for racing sim setup.

KickSpinFilter529d ago (Edited 529d ago )

Wow input lag of 1 that's nice I picked up the 55 Samsung K8000 and that had 18 input lag (I think), and that was one of the better ones at the time. OLED's was not even worth looking at due to high Lag, nice to see that really fixed.

InTheZoneAC529d ago (Edited 529d ago )

people need to calm down a bit with "input lag" issues, they are greatly exaggerated.99.999999999999999 99999999998% of the time you won't even notice.

Dmagic529d ago

spoken like someone who has never played and seen/felt the difference of 1ms and 20ms

starchild529d ago're just imperceptive. I can feel the difference in input lag between different monitors and I appreciate and prefer the ones with lower input lag.

nX529d ago

I did have a 65" OLED and it was easily noticeable in HDR mode.

Not sure how it is now since it was updated, but mine also had some issues with motion handling so I sent it back.

iiorestesii529d ago

Even on 'game mode', the difference between my 52' OLED and my regular PC monitor is huge, even just flicking back and forth in the XMB is much more responsive. And it's just a standard Dell monitor

iiorestesii529d ago

I might play GoW on a TV. But anything multiplayer is getting done on a PC monitor. I will literally never play multiplayer on a HDTV again.

Input lag and pixel response time is not the same thing. 1ms is the pixel response time.

KickSpinFilter527d ago

I thought I read input lag somewhere? The site before led me to believe this?
Then what is the Input Lag anybody know?
