Samsung has been busy with announcements over the past few weeks and their latest was at IFA 2018. They just announced their new Thunderbolt 3 QLED curved monitor, the 34″ CJ79 and 43″ CJ89. Samsung says the CJ79 is the first-of-its-kind QLED monitor that “maximizes productivity for streamlined performance.”

Compatible with Macs and PCs, the CJ79 features two Thunderbolt 3 ports that transmit display, data, and power at a processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps), eight times faster than USB 3.0, and simultaneously charges devices up to 85 watts(W), all through a single cable. This Thunderbolt 3 QLED monitor is designed for creative and business audiences who seek a comfortable and efficient work experience through powerful connectivity.

“Over the years, Samsung has revolutionized the viewing experience for professionals alike,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The CJ79 is our latest endeavor in taking curved monitors to the next level that highlights our commitment to innovation. The addition of Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity aligns to that vision and connects customers to infinite possibilities.”

“The Thunderbolt™ 3 ecosystem continues to expand and deliver innovative products with outstanding performance,” said Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel. “It is timely that Samsung, a leading manufacturer, is featuring their CJ79 QLED Monitor with Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity. This new CJ79 QLED Monitor delivers the performance while enabling a powerful new display with integrated docking capabilities for a simple and easy to use solution.”

Check out the key specifications of both Thunderbolt 3 QLED monitors below:

Samsung’s CJ79 incorporates Quantum Dot technology with brilliant and realistic detail across a 125 percent sRGB color spectrum. The curved VA panel technology produces a 3,000:1 contrast ratio surpassing conventional monitors and amplifies previously hidden details across the entire screen through pristine shades, deeper blacks, and brighter whites.

The AMD FreeSync synchronizes the refresh rate of graphics cards for the CJ79 to reduce image tearing and stutter, providing seamless gameplay and video playback for uninterrupted viewing.

The CJ89 is a 43-inch super ultra-wide curved monitor with remarkable 3840 x 1200 resolution — a 32:10 aspect ratio — which creates a larger and more vibrant workspace. If you’ve never used one of these super wide monitors before, let me tell you, they are awesome! The robust design includes a built-in KVM switch, USB-Type C ports, and built-in stereo speakers for greater functionality.

Samsung’s CJ79 and CJ89 monitors are currently available in Europe and will be also available worldwide soon. Check out Samsung’s website for more.
