Samsung Unveils First Thunderbolt 3 34" QLED Curved Monitor at CES 2018
At CES 2018, Samsung Electronics has just debuted its new CJ791 monitor, the first curved monitor to feature Intel’s Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. The 34-inch CJ791 model utilises single-source power and processing speed with impressive picture quality for a more comfortable and productive user experience.
Through a single Thunderbolt 3 cable, the new CJ791 monitor can let users link and dock their laptop to the display without extensive wiring. The Thunderbolt 3 connection provides processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) – a rate nearly four times faster than USB alternatives – allowing users to connect across a full ecosystem of docks, displays and peripheral devices including Macs, USB type-C laptops, and other desktop accessories like storage drives or external graphics cards. The Thunderbolt 3 interface also enables the CJ791 to provide up to 85 watts (W) of laptop charging power.
“As the pioneer of the curved monitor industry, Samsung continues to seek new ways to refine our displays and exceed consumers’ expectations on heightened performance and presentation,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The CJ791 aligns Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with our best-in-class curvature and QLED picture quality to captivate and engage users, while also promoting improved organisation and productivity. We are thrilled to demonstrate the full capabilities of our innovative new display to CES 2018 attendees.”
At 21:9 aspect ratio and 3440×1440 ultra-wide QHD resolution gives users nearly 2.5 times the pixel density of full HD alternatives. In turn, users can view large files, spreadsheets and data tables in a more readable format, and without extensive scrolling or zooming.
The CJ791’s four milliseconds (ms) response time also ensures smooth transitions between scenes, making it ideal for racing, flight simulation and first-person battle games.
Pricing and Irish availability has yet to be confirmed be we expect more info to come once CES 2018 in Vegas wraps up.
