Samsung's gaming display first to be crowned DisplayHDR compliant

Samsung’s CHG90 gaming display, which was unveiled in June and finally released in August, has received the Video Electronics Standards Association’s (VESA) certification that it is DisplayHDR compliant. The Super Ultra-wide 49-inch curved gaming display is the first display to be certified as compliant with the DisplayHDR 600 performance standards.

In a statement, Samsung said:

“When granting DisplayHDR 600 certification to the CHG90, VESA cited the monitor’s use of HDR to elevate contrast ratio (3,000:1), colour accuracy and overall presentation vibrancy as an industry standard-setter. The certification further validates the CHG90’s ability to provide the optimal gaming and entertainment viewing environment, but is just the latest in a series of recent accolades for the monitor.”

VESA introduced the standards spec for HDR performance of PC monitors and laptop computer displays earlier this year. The fully open standard specifies HDR quality, including luminance, colour gamut, bit depth, and rest time. It consists of DisplayHDR 400, 600, and 1000.

The CHG90 has a 32:9 aspect ratio with a ‘Double Full HD’ (3840x1080px) resolution and is effectively two monitors fused into one. The monitor retails for $1,499, which is seemingly quite low for what it is that you’re getting.
