Earlier this year, Samsung dropped details of its world-first Thunderbolt 3 QLED curved monitor capable of speeds up to 40gb per second. That’s eight times faster than USB 3.0. Well, this beauty has just released in Australia, and you can get your hands on one for AUD $1,599.
The CJ79 is a 34-inch curved monitor perfect for creatives and IT professionals who seek a powerful connection. Compatible with Macs and PCs, CJ79 features two Thunderbolt 3 ports that transmit display, data and power all through a single cable.
CJ79 incorporates Quantum Dot technology for realistic detail across a 125 percent sRGB colour spectrum. The curved VA panel produces a 3,000:1 contrast ratio that amplifies details for deeper blacks and brighter whites. AMD FreeSync synchronises the refresh rate of graphics cards to reduce image tearing and stutter.
Samsung claims its new QLED monitor is the industry’s sharpest, 1,500R curved ultra-wide screen, engineered to follow the natural curve of the eye for a more immersive and comfortable viewing experience. The height and tilt can be adjusted to improve comfortable viewing parameters. Users familiar with dual monitors can make use of the Picture-by-Picture (PBP) feature and display two sources on the one screen.
Samsung also revealed details of its CJ89, a 43-inch super ultra-wide curved monitor with impressive 3840 x 1200 resolution. This one is currently available only in Europe and will reach other territories at a later date.
In other Samsung news, the tech giant also revealed a QLED TV capable of upscaling content to 8K. It launches in Australia at the end of September. Although there’s currently no word on a price.
