Samsung recently announced three brand new displays, including a gigantic 49-inch beast that is pretty much two 25-inch displays fused together.

The 49-inch CHG90 model comes with a gorgeous ultra wide screen that features a resolution of 3840 by 1080, and Samsung is marketing it specifically with gamers in mind.

Samsung equipped it with an LCD display, 1.07 million color palette, one millisecond refresh rate and 1800R curvature that surrounds the viewer. The LCD panel is lit up by LEDs that use Samsung’s quantum dot technology meant to get the most accurate colors and lighting. This means it can light up somewhere between 1,500 and 2,00 nits and can display color at 100 percent DCI-P3 color volume. It also comes with 144GHz refresh rate and four-channel scanning to limit motion blur.

The two other displays Samsung unveiled were 27-inch and 32-inch CHG70 models. These models come with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 and feature the same internal specs found in the 49-inch model.

During the development of the displays, Samsung worked with game developer studio Dice and Ghost to enable HDR, further enhancing their gaming capabilities.

Samsung is pricing the 27-inch model at $599, 32-inch model at $699 and the 49-inch model at $1,499. The company didn’t reveal when the displays would be available for purchase, but most likely will reveal more news about them during E3 next week.
