Samsung Electronics Canada has added a new curved QLED monitor to its line-up, its first to include Intel Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
The new 34-inch CJ791 monitor is intended for both entertainment and business audiences. A single Thunderbolt 3 cable can link and dock the monitor to a laptop, offering throughput up to 40Gbps (gigabits per second)., nearly 4 times faster than USB 3.1 (rated at 10Gbps). The Thunderbolt 3 interface also allows the CJ791 to provide up to 85W of laptop charging power.
The design of the CJ791 is described as "clear" and "detail-rich." The screen has a 21:9 aspect ratio, with 3440x1440 ultra-wide QHD resolution giving nearly 2.5 times the pixel density of Full HD displays. The thin depth and narrow bezel design should suit multi-display setups, while a height- and tilt-adjustable stand provides good viewing ergonomics.
Curvature is rated 1,500R, with a viewing angle of 178 degrees. The QLED display panel delivers 125% of sRGB color gamut.
Gamer-oriented features include a Game Mode, with dynamic adjustment of gamma, color and contrast for each scene, to ensure a "true-to-life" view. Rated at 4ms response, the display should give lag-free performance in fast action games.
"Whether for gaming or professional use, the CJ791 aligns Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with our immersive curvature and QLED picture quality, pushing the envelope of innovation and intuitive design," said Pat Bugos, Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung Canada.
