Samsung has been on a streak this week when it comes to Thunderbolt 3 tech, announcing new products like the their external NVMe drive, and now also with a new QLED curved monitor (model C34J791). The new monitor features a giant 34-inch display with a 3,440×1,440 resolution (21:9 aspect), with a 1,500R curvature, and allows you to operate a dual screen experience in a single monitor using Picture-by-Picture (PBP)–or simply run it as one giant screen.
Using Thunderbolt 3, you can run everything on a single connection, and then use the passthrough to also connect additional devices to the monitor, including USB. It supports AMD FreeSync and has plenty of inputs on the back that also include HDMI, DisplayPort, and two USB 3.0 ports (in addition to two TB3 ports).
With 32-inches, you are going to get the effect that curved is meant to deliver, yet typically fails to on smaller displays or TV’s under 65-inches at a distance–in our experience. It will be sure to be a hit for professionals and gamers looking for a true beveless experience.
You won’t be able to be able to get your hands on one just yet–unless you live in Europe, as Europe has the only availability at the moment. However, Samsung says they will be shipping out worldwide “soon”. Maybe we’ll have a link for you when that time comes.
