[H]ardOCP: Samsung Announces New Monitors for Gaming and Content Creation

Samsung has come up with a fresh new design for monitors that should've been done years ago. I had the pleasure of checking these new monitors out for a short time and let me tell you, they're impressive.

As the name suggests, the Samsung Space Monitor is about maximising space itself, and that potentially means a nicer, cleaner desk made for folks who might get a little OCD or anxiety when they see a desk with more than what's needed sitting where they plan to work.

"After the CHG90 model released a year ago, Samsung is adding a new model to the 49" Ultrawide 32:9 Gaming Monitor line with the newly announced CRG9. Yes, it is that wide, with a 32:9 screen.

"Samsung's latest monitor lineup is incredibly versatile, and demonstrates our commitment to continued innovation and leadership in the category".

Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

You can position Samsung's Space Monitor against the wall, hovering in the air, or flush against your desk. The clamp is also surprisingly elegant, with curves and angles that don't look anything like the vice-style clamps used on aftermarket monitor arms.

Since Tuesday's close approach, New Horizons is already more than 3 million miles deeper into that mysterious region. The picture has been taken with a resolution of 140 meters per pixel and is taken from a distance of 17,000 miles.

The company is also set to unveil the Space Monitor, which is optimised for office workers. Samsung will also sell a 32-inch version, which raises the resolution to 4K at 3,840 by 2,160 pixels. When not in use, the monitor can be pushed back and store flat against a wall.

It will also show off a 49-inch curved QLED gaming monitor dubbed DRG9 at CES. FreeSync 2 HDR includes features like direct tone mapping to reduce latency and improve color fidelity, alongside the smoother frame display that's a hallmark of FreeSync panels. It offers a peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits, meaning the same brightness of 1,000 candles glowing on a square-meter site. HDR10 delivers outstanding local dimming, and high-contrast HDR offers advanced spectacular highlights not available in non-HDR monitors.

The Korean tech giant said it will showcase the 49-inch CRG9 monitor that comes with a curved screen sporting a 32:9 aspect ratio. One HDMI port and two DisplayPort connections are provided.

Samsung thinks its curved UR59C 32-inch monitor will appeal to content creators. The UR59C is specifically aimed at content creators.

Samsung will release two variants of the Space Monitor: a 27-inch QHD model and a 32-inch UHD (4K) model. The 1500R curvature is claimed to give users an immersive experience for creating content and watching videos while reducing the eye strain typically associated with long periods of traditional monitor use.
