Samsung's 49-inch Gaming Monitor First to Be HDR Certified

Samsung CHG90 Gaing Monitor

If you're in the market for a new TV today, then "4K" and "HDR" are both things you want your TV to have, but what if instead your want a new monitor? 4K resolution is already the norm, but HDR? Not so much. However, Samsung's huge CHG90 monitor not only supports HDR, it's the first gaming monitor to receive VESA certification for it.

The CHG90 is the widest gaming monitor you can buy at 49-inches, offering a 32:9 aspect ratio and 3,840-by-1,080 resolution on its QLED panel. It also supports AMD's FreeSync 2 and HDR as standard. But from today, Samsung can also claim the CHG90 is VESA certified using the DisplayHDR standard.

DisplayHDR specifies the quality of the HDR offered by a monitor rating it by luminance, color gamut, bit depth, and rise time. There are three levels: DisplayHDR 400, 600, and 1000, with the CHG90 achieving DisplayHDR 600 certification. Samsung conveys this as meaning HDR content can be "enjoyed in bright indoor lighting conditions."

For anyone considering a new monitor purchase, this certification makes the Samsung CHG90 a tempting proposition. Not only will it handle any HDR-enabled games on your PC, but you can also hook up a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X and enjoy the HDR-enhanced visuals either console outputs.

When the CHG90 was originally released back in June, the price was set at $1,499. However, that's no longer the case with Amazon listing it for just $999 right now. That's not bad considering just how big this monitor is.
