Samsung CRG9 Overview

  • 1Description

Built to deliver a wide and immersive gaming experience, the C49RG9 49" 32:9 120 Hz Curved FreeSync HDR LCD Gaming Monitor from Samsung features a 49" Vertical Alignment (VA) panel with a native resolution of 5120 x 1440, a 32:9 aspect ratio, an 1800R curvature rating, a 120 Hz refresh rate, DisplayHDR 1000 with a peak luminance of 1000 cd/m2, and AMD FreeSync II.

The 1800R curvature rating helps your eyes to maintain a constant focus distance from the screen. This reduces focus shifts your eyes make when viewing a flat screen, which helps result in less fatigue and more comfortable viewing over extended periods. Additionally, the 120 Hz refresh rate means the display shows a new image 120 times per second for less delay between each individual frame and therefore less input lag. Rounding things out is AMD FreeSync II, which helps remove stuttering delays and screen tearing by dynamically adapting the display's refresh rate to variable frame rates.

Samsung has also equipped this display with support for 1.07 billion colors, a static contrast ratio of 3000:1, a 4 ms (GtG) response time, and coverage for 95% of the DCI-P3 and 125% of the sRGB color gamuts using Quantum Dot technology. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. This display has one HDMI 2.0 output and two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs for connecting to your system. For connecting peripherals, there are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports.

Please note that DisplayHDR 1000 requires HDR10.

    Samsung CRG9 Reviews

    C49RG9 49- 32:9 120 Hz Curved FreeSync HDR LCD Gaming Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy I love this monitor. Ive done quite a few reviews of it on my youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5xugFoSRQ8&t= So the pros: 1. HDR is wonderfull 2. The 108ppi makes words much more sharp and less grainy then the CHG90 3. The colors overall are very nice. 4. NO ghosting. So many people told me VA panels suffer from ghosting. Samsung must have found a way to fix it. i have run tests and everything has been clear. 6. Easy settings box has made it very easy to multi task ont he monitor 7. Freesync II works extremely well with my RTX2080 video cards. Cons: 1. This thing can really tax a GPU. i wouldnt recommend this to anyone who has a GPU with less power then RTX2080. I think a rule of thumb is, if you cant play games in 4K, max settings, between 40-60fps with your current GPU, dont bother with this monitor. 2. 10bit color will only work at 120hz if you are subsampling. to use the RBG uncompressed, you have to drop your refresh rate down to 100hz. 3. The screen size option some times makes the font on your screen look like it being squished. Some notable mentions: 1. You can only split this monitor in to 2 independent screens 2. the screen can either be set to 16:9/16:9 or 21:9/11:9 3. there is no way to have a 21:9 screen in the middle of the monitor space and be able to use the the surrounding space natively.

    Can you use this as a dual monitor from same computer? If i wanted to game in one half and keep the other open ( like a dual setup)?
    Asked by: Ozwaldo
    Yes, but you will lose FreeSync in that mode (called PBP, picture-by-picture) Which was the deal-breaker for me

    Is this panel edge lit? Does it support local dimming? If so, how many zones?
    Asked by: Tyler
    This is a QLED screen. They use traditional LCD panels lit using LEDs. Between the LCD layer and the backlight, a filter with energy reactive nano-particles filters the light to produce more pure and saturated colors. It hits a sweet spot between traditional LED panels and OLED panels with. A good technical overview can be found here: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/by-type/qled-vs-oled-vs-led

    Can I run this on an ASUS Strix GEFORCE GTX 980?

    Can I run this on an ASUS Strix GEFORCE GTX 980?
    Asked by: James
    Yes it will work. However, be aware that it will take a more powerful GPU to run some games at 32:9 at comfortable frame rates. This display is just ~11% shy of the pixel count of a 16:9 4k display. You're not restricted to play at 32:9 though. You can play games at 16:9 either centered with black bars on either side or on either side of the screen using picture-by-picture mode.

    Will this run similar fps to a 27 inch 4k monitor? I have an rtx 2080ti and had the first 49 inch monitor from samsung and loved it but needed more vertical pixles. Will 2080ti push 60fps on mostly maxed settings?
    Asked by: Dan
    I'm running a 2080ti and I see constant FRs in the low 50s to high 80s in AAA titles with things pretty maxed out. Games I've tested so far are: SotRT Prey Hellblade Div 2 I'm very happy with the monitor paired to a 2080ti. Hope this helps

    Yes, but not enough to handle 60fps. Better find something else like a better GPU first.
