Gamers have something to look forward to later this year as Samsung has announced that it will be launching an ultra-wide 32:9 monitor later this year.

Dubbed the ‘double full HD’ (DFHD) panel, the monitor will feature a resolution of 3840 x 1080 pixels, with a diagonal width of 49 inches. It also features an 1800R curvature, making it curvier that many other extended monitors on the market to date.

It is expected to have a 144Hz refresh rate, and supports both AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-sync, which is a huge plus if you’re a video gamer. They will also use VA technology with a 5000:1 contrast ratio.

If you’re looking for a slightly smaller but also double widescreen option, they are also working on a slightly smaller 44 inch curved monitor with a 3840 x 1200 resolution monitor. Technically the ratio would be 16:5 but Samsung says it’s going to be 22:9. There will be a 60Hz and 144Hz option, and they both will also have an 1800R curvature with a VA display at a 5000:1 contrast ratio.

These two variants are expected to hit the production line in September of this year, with them hitting store shelves in early 2018. If you’re looking to invest in one of these bad boys, make sure to upgrade to a GPU that supports these extended resolutions.
