Samsung Electronics has announced the new CJ791 monitor, the first curved monitor to feature Intel’s Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Aimed towards entertainment and business audiences, the 34-inch CJ791 model aligns single-source power and processing speed. Through a single Thunderbolt 3 cable, CJ791 users can link and dock their monitor and laptop 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.
The CJ791’s has a 21:9 aspect ratio that claims to provide more screen real estate for multitasking, while a complementary 3440x1440 ultra-wide QHD resolution elevates content and imagery with nearly 2.5 times the pixel density of full HD alternatives.
In turn, professionals can view large files, spreadsheets and data tables in a more readable format, and without extensive scrolling or zooming. The display’s height-adjustable stand and tilt functionality also enable users to customize positioning and work within their comfortable viewing parameters.
The display’s QLED presentation technology reflects colors across a 125 per cent sRGB spectrum, and offers deeper blacks, brighter whites. This refinement, coupled with 1,500R curvature and 178-degree viewing angle, aims to give users a complete view of their surroundings. It also offers a Game Mode, which contains a dynamic gamma setting that adjusts color and contrast of each individual scene.
