The 49″ Samsung CRG9 Super-Wide QLED Monitor Revealed!

At CES 2019, Samsung revealed a 49-inch super ultra-wide gaming monitor with a QLED panel – the Samsung CRG9 gaming monitor! Let’s take a look at the key features of this amazing new Samsung gaming monitor!

 

The 49″ Samsung CRG9 Super-Wide QLED Monitor

The new Samsung CRG9 is the world’s first super ultra-wide gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio. As it represents the leading edge of Samsung gaming monitor capabilities, it is filled with the latest gaming technologies.

Super Ultra-Wide Curved Dual QHD Display

The Samsung CRG9 most noticeable feature is its super ultra-wide display, which has a 32:9 display ratio and a Dual QHD resolution of 5120 x 1440 pixels. That is equivalent to two 27-inch QHD displays placed side-by-side. To make it even more immersive, the panel has a 1800R screen curvature.

QLED Panel With HDR10 Support

The use of Samsung QLED technology allows the Samsung CRG9 monitor to deliver 95% of the DCI-P3 colour space. The panel also supports HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1000 nits, and local dimming capabilities.

AMD Radeon FreeSync 2

Samsung CRG9 has a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, with a 4 ms response time.. It supports AMD Radeon FreeSync 2, which reduces stuttering, screen tearing and input latency. It also features Low Framerate Compensation (LFC) for smoother gameplay.

PBP + Eye Saver Mode

The Samsung CRG9 has Picture-by-Picture (PBP) capability, allowing you to simultaneously view two video sources at the same time. This means, you can display a movie (or CCTV feed), while playing a game at the same time!

To help ensure your comfort, the CRG9 has an Eye Saver Mode and Flicker Free technology to minimise blue light emissions and screen flickering.

 

Samsung CRG9 Price + Availability

Unfortunately, Samsung has NOT announced the price and availability of the CRG9 gaming monitor. We will update this article, as and when we get more details from Samsung.

While two other Dell S-Series monitors also support HDR, the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) is the only model to meet the minimum requirements for the VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard. We will tell you more on this later in the article.

 

Dell S2719DM Price + Availability

The Dell S2719DM is available with immediate effect with a recommended retail price of RM 1,889 / US$499.99. If you are in the US, it’s currently on offer :

Unboxing The Dell S2719DM

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) may be ultra-thin, but it comes in a large box that weighs just over 8 kg. Typical Dell packaging – designed to take the worst of abuse by delivery services.

Inside the large box, you will find the following items :

  • One Dell S2719DM monitor with stand
  • Dell S2719DM User Guide and Safety and Regulatory Information
  • One 45 W Dell compact power adaptor with power cable
  • One HDMI 2.0 cable (1.8 m)

Note that the HDMI 2.0 cable is no different from your usual HDMI cable, just certified to support 4K video at 60 Hz. You can also use regular HDMI 1.4 cables just fine. More on this later in the article!

The Dell S2719DM Up Close!

In this review, we prepared two different videos. Our traditional hands-on look, and a more stylised feature overview. Do let us know which is better by liking the video you prefer!

In this video, we give you a quick look of the key features of the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) monitor.

As you can see, the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) is a very stylish ultra-thin monitor. Every aspect – from the sleek silver back to the gracefully curved stand – was designed with aesthetics in mind. This is not a monitor to be hidden in the back room!

 

The Dell S2719DM Key Features

In this video, we highlight the key features of the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) monitor. Do let us know if you prefer this video, or the one above!

 

InfinitiEdge Display

Dell calls it an InfinitiEdge display. Its bezel is just 7.1 mm at the top and sides, and only 8.1 mm at the bottom.

Concealed into the lower right edge are Power and OSD (On-Screen Display) control buttons. From left to right, they are :

  • Preset Modes : Use this button to choose from a list of preset colour modes
  • Brightness / Contrast : Use this button to directly access the Brightness and Contrast bars.
  • Menu : Use this button to launch the On-Screen Display (OSD) and select the OSD menu
  • Exit : Use this button to go back to the OSD main menu, or to exit the OSD main menu.
  • Power : Use this button to turn the monitor On or Off.

The Power button also doubles as a power mode indicator. A white LED light indicates the monitor is turned On and fully functional. A glowing white LED light indicates the monitor is on the DPMS Power Save Mode.

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

HDMI 2.0 Connectivity

If you need a plethora of connectivity options, the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) is NOT the monitor for you. To maintain its elegant design, and to keep costs low, there are only four ports – all centrally aligned right behind the stand.

For display input, you have only two HDMI 2.0 ports, so you will need adaptors if you have devices with DisplayPort or DVI output. Above these two HDMI ports are a 3.5 mm audio output port, and below them – the power port.

A HDMI 2.0 cable is included in the package. It is certified to support the higher 18 Gbits/s bandwidth necessary to support 4K video at 60 Hz. However, older HDMI 1.4 cables will work just fine because the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) only delivers 2560 x 1440 pixels at 60 Hz.

You may see new 48G HDMI cables being introduced. Those are only required to support HDMI 2.1 features, like increased bandwidth to support 10K video at 120 Hz and dynamic HDR. This monitor does not support those features, so there is no need to invest in the new, expensive 48G HDMI cables.

 

Ultra-Thin Design

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) was designed with aesthetics in mind. It has a very sleek design with ultra-thin edges that slope gently across the back. Even the stand uses the same elegant design language.

It thinnest at the sides – just 5.5 mm, and gently curves to 10 mm at the top midpoint, and 29 mm at the bottom. This clever design makes the S2719DM look exquisitely thin.

 

Fixed Hinged Stand

For what we believe are aesthetic reasons, the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) comes with a fixed hinged stand. If you are planning to mount your monitor on the wall, or a multi-monitor stand, you will have to consider another monitor.

The fixed hinged stand can tilt downwards by 5°, and upwards by 21°. However, it cannot swivel, and does not allow height adjustments. That’s the price you pay for such a slim and elegant curved stand.

Corning Iris Glass Light-Guide Plate

Edge-lit LED displays use a light-guide plate (LGP) to distribute light uniformly throughout the panel, Usually they are made up from pure PMMA resin, but such polymer LGPs can warp and expand with changes in heat and humidity. They therefore require a wider bezel, greater thickness and an air gap to account for movement and expansion.

To keep it thin and reduce the bezel size, the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) features the Corning Iris Glass Light-Guide Plate technology.

Because it’s made from glass, the Corning Iris Glass Light-Guide Plate is rigid. This removes the need for an air gap, and a thicker backlight, greatly reducing the thickness of the display. Its dimensional stability also ensures reliable transmission of light from the LED edge lighting.

 

Extra-Bright QHD Panel

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) has a QHD panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 – a popular resolution for both gaming and work. That is nothing special, of course. What lifts it above the crowd though is its brighter panel.

Many monitors of its class have a typical brightness of 250 to 350 nits. The Dell S2719DM (Price Check) boasts a typical brightness of 400 nits, with a peak brightness of 600 nits.

The increased brightness is not only about a brighter panel. Higher brightness is a critical aspect of the monitor’s HDR performance.

 

DisplayHDR 400

Many HDR-ready monitors support the open HDR10 format, but this does not mean that they are necessarily “true” HDR monitors. This is where the VESA DisplayHDR program comes in. It is a set of standards that HDR monitors should comply with, so that consumers can be guaranteed of certain levels of HDR performance.

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) is a VESA DisplayHDR 400-certified monitor, which means it has to meet or exceed these requirements :

  • Deliver true 8-bit image quality – on par with top 15% of PC displays today
  • Support global dimming for better dynamic contrast ratio
  • Have a peak luminance of 400 cd/m2 or better – up to 50% higher than typical SDR
  • Minimum requirements for color gamut and contrast exceed SDR (95% of sRGB)

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) exceeds those requirements with a peak luminance of 600 cd/m2, and a colour gamut of over 99% sRGB. However, it does not support local dimming, and is thus considered to be an entry-level HDR monitor.

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

sRGB Colour Gamut

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) supports a colour gamut of over over 99% sRGB, and 85% DCI-P3. What’s the difference between the sRGB and DCI-P3 colour spaces? Take a look.

Don’t get confused by the two numbers. What they basically mean is that the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) is essentially an sRGB monitor. It may offer an almost 100% sRGB coverage, which is better than many sRGB monitors, but you will need to look elsewhere if you need your monitor to support a wider colour gamut like Adobe RGB.

 

AMD FreeSync

Dell does not mention this, but the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) monitor supports AMD FreeSync. When used with AMD graphics cards and APUs, the monitor will dynamically adjust the refresh rate to prevent tearing and stuttering.

While the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) has a vertical scan range of 48 Hz to 75 Hz, it is limited to 60 Hz at its native 2560 x 1440 resolution. As long as the frame rate of your games are 48 fps or higher, FreeSync will ensure that they are tear-free.

Our Verdict

The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) is a work of art. It is not only incredibly thin, it is really sleek and sexy. Quite unlike the utilitarian design of the traditional Dell monitors. It was obviously designed to be proudly displayed in public, not hidden in an office.

In addition to its slim form factor, the S2719DM also has very thin bezels, qualifying it as an InfinityEdge display. This allows for a more immersive working or gaming experience, especially when you plan to use two or three of them together.

The Dell S2719DM has some gaming chops, even though it is not a gaming monitor. It supports AMD FreeSync, albeit with a maximum refresh rate of 60 Hz at its native resolution. It won’t match the high refresh rates and low response time of gaming monitors, but it will do just fine for gaming after a hard day’s work.

It is also a VESA DisplayHDR 400-certified monitor, although this is the most basic HDR certification. It lacks local dimming capability, which is necessary to deliver deeper blacks.

It is also important to point out that the Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) has a typical brightness of 400 nits, with a peak brightness of 600 nits. This is much brighter than typical WQHD monitors, which is not only important for HDR, but also allows for better image quality in bright environments.

Its sleek design comes with some disadvantages though. The fixed hinged stand, which looks great, does not allow for changes in the display height. Heck, it doesn’t even swivel. All it can do is tilt downwards by 5°, and upwards by 21°. This is the price you have to pay for such a sleek design.

[adrotate group=”2″]

The other problem – its limited connectivity options. It only comes with two HDMI ports. While HDMI is, no doubt, common and supported by practically all computers and media players, a DisplayPort or a mini-DP port would have been most welcomed.

This is particularly important for those who intend to use two or more of these monitors – most graphics cards come with just one HDMI port, but two or more DisplayPorts. With only HDMI input, you will need a DP-to-HDMI converter for the second and third monitors.

But if you can live with these relatively minor disadvantages, you can literally have your cake and eat it too. The Dell S2719DM (Malaysia | US | UK) offers a great combination of features and capabilities in a beautiful package.

As such, we feel it deserves no less than our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Great job on the S2719DM!

The BenQ Eye-Care Monitor Technologies Explained!

BenQ just revealed a slew of new Eye-Care monitors with new Eye-Care technologies built-in. But what do the new Brightness Intelligence Plus and Low Blue Light Plus technologies mean to you – the user? Read and find out everything you need to know about the BenQ Eye-Care monitor technologies!

 

The BenQ Eye-Care Monitor Technologies

BenQ’s Brian Lee and Jim Y Yang explain the new BenQ Eye-Care monitor technologies, and why they are important for those who want a comfortable viewing experience.

Brightness Intelligence and Brightness Intelligence Plus

The BenQ Brightness Intelligence (BI) technology automatically detects the brightness of the ambient lighting, and automatically adjusts the display brightness to match. This not only helps to ensure a comfortable viewing experience, it also helps to reduce power consumption.

The Brightness Intelligence Plus (BI+) technology improves on that by also detecting and adjusting for colour temperature. This takes care of mixed-colour lighting, as well as the changing colour temperature of natural sunlight.

Low Blue Light and Low Blue Light Plus

BenQ’s exclusive Low Blue Light technology eliminates blue light in the 420-480 nm spectrum to reduce damage to the eye.

The Low Blue Light Plus technology takes that up a notch by reducing blue light in the 420-455 nm spectrum, while preventing a colour shift to yellow, allowing for more accurate colour reproduction.

Flicker-Free

The BenQ Flicker-Free technology is certified by TÜV Rheinland to eliminate the monitor flicker that is present in other monitors. Even though other monitors may refresh at very high rates, they still result in imperceptible flicker that cause stress to the eyes during long use.

AMD FreeSync

This is an AMD technology that eliminates image tearing, broken frames and choppy gameplay for a smoother gaming experience, when used with AMD graphics cards.

NVIDIA Computex 2018 – GeForce Updates + Demos

Right after the NVIDIA Computex 2018 press conference, they gave us a private briefing on the latest GeForce updates, as well as demos of real-time ray tracing with NVIDIA DGX Station, the NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD), and NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR.

Again, if you are looking for news on NVIDIA Turing, we will have to disappoint you. As NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang mentioned in his Q&A session, “it’s a long time from now” before Ampere is released. Still, there are a number of interesting GeForce-related technologies to check out…

 

NVIDIA Computex 2018 GeForce Updates

The session kicked off with a 34-minute long briefing on the latest GeForce updates.

Here’s a summary of the key points :

  • Since the latest Intel Coffee Lake mobile CPUs were introduced, there are now 85 new gaming laptops with GeForce GTX GPUs.
  • A year after NVIDIA Max-Q was introduced, there are now 25 laptop models built from ground-up with Max-Q design in mind.[adrotate group=”2″]
  • The Hunt Effect – increasing brightness increases the perceived colourfulness.
  • The Stevens Effect – increasing brightness increases apparent spatial resolution.
  • sRGB and DCI-P3 cannot display all of the colours in nature (represented by Pointer’s Gamut). Ultimately, the best possible colour gamut is Rec. 2020.
  • The first two NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR monitors are the Acer Predator X27 and the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27UQ, and feature 4K HDR panels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, that can be overclocked to 144 Hz.
  • Both G-SYNC HDR monitors have a panel with 384-zone full-array direct backlight capable of 1000 nits brightness, with a DCI-P3 colour gamut with Quantum Dots.

 

NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR Demo + Comparison

Here is a demo and comparison of the Acer Predator X27 G-SYNC HDR monitor, with a “regular” Acer Predator XP1 G-SYNC monitor.

 

Real-Time Ray Tracing On NVIDIA DGX Station

NVIDIA also showed off real-time ray tracing on an NVIDIA DGX Station.

 

The NVIDIA BFGD (Big Format Gaming Display)

We also had the opportunity to check out the 65″ NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display, which also features G-SYNC HDR.
