These days, when it comes to gaming monitors, immersion is the name of the game. Whether they’re chasing glory on the battlefield or exploring rich open worlds, gamers want to be able to see more, more clearly. They want a monitor that’s capable of bringing out the most intricate of details, and powerful enough to keep up with fast-paced action.
That’s where Samsung’s new 49-inch CRG9, which won CES 2019 Best of Innovation Award in the Computer Peripherals Product Category and Honoree in the Gaming Product Category, comes in. As you can see in the infographic below, the world’s first high-resolution, super ultra-wide gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio packs in an array of cutting-edge technologies that foster more fun and immersive gaming experiences. Let’s take a closer look at those features here to examine how the CRG9 takes gaming to the next level.
A Super Ultra-Wide 32:9 Screen
The CRG9’s 32:9 aspect ratio creates a wider field of view that allows you to see more content in superfine detail.
An 1800R Curved Panel
Featuring an 1800R (1,800mm) screen curvature, the monitor’s panel wraps around your field of view, completely immersing you in your game.
A Dual QHD Display
The CRG9’s 5120 x 1440 Dual QHD display is equivalent in size to two 27-inch QHD monitors placed side by side and offers a more focused and flexible multitasking experience, without the distracting bezel that divides dual-monitor setups.
HDR10 support allows the CRG9 to offer deeper black levels, outstanding local dimming and advanced specular highlights with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
The addition of Samsung’s QLED technology allows the CRG9 to offer exceptional color reproduction, expressing 95 percent1 of the DCI-P3 color space. This means that colors are purer, brighter and more realistic.

A 120Hz Refresh Rate
The CRG9’s rapid 120Hz (Hertz) refresh rate and 4ms (millisecond) response time minimize image lag and motion blur, enabling the monitor to effortlessly keep up with fast-paced games. In addition, the user-friendly 60Hz settings allow you to quickly and easily optimize performance via the onscreen display, without accessing the display settings menu.
Multiple Game Modes
Multiple game modes allow you to optimize settings like contrast ratio, definition and color based on the type of game you’re playing. Switch to Low Input Lag mode for even faster response times, and target your enemies more accurately with Virtual Aim Point onscreen crosshairs.
The CRG9’s PBP (Picture-by-Picture) functionality allows you to simultaneously view two video sources on the same screen, without compromising image quality. This means that, for example, a user could watch a visually engrossing film while playing a favorite game at the same time. The CRG9 features one HDMI port and two display ports, as well as USB 3.0 and headphone connections.
The monitor’s Eye Saver mode and Flicker Free technology minimize blue light emissions and screen flickering, allowing you to play longer and more comfortably, and with less strain on your eyes.
A User-Friendly Design
The CRG9’s height-adjustable stand swivels and tilts with ease, allowing you to position the screen for maximum comfort, and has been designed to occupy less space on your desk. The panel’s VESA Standard mount also offers the option of mounting the monitor on VESA-compatible arms.
