CES hasn't officially kicked off, but you can't tell that from the emails! As the ball starts rolling we are seeing some hints about the products which companies will be showing off, such as Samsung's new CRG9, UR59C gaming displays as well as the Space Monitor.
First off is the CRG9, a 49" 5120x1440 FreeSync2 display with a 32:9 aspect ratio with a top refresh rate of 120Hz and an HDR 10 rating. It sports an 1800mm screen curvature and a quoted 4ms response time to help with motion blur in addition to the features offered by FreeSync2. The monitor is actually designed as if it were a pair of 27" 1440p 16:9 displays, which allows you to toggle to a PIP mode which allows you to display two completely separate video sources on the display simultaneously at that size and resolution; or go full screen for gaming.
The UR59C is somewhat smaller, a 31.5" 4K display with a 1500R curvature; no idea about the inconsistent curvature description. With a total depth of 6.7mm this monitor should be able to fit on desktops which don't have the space for the CDG9.
Last, but not least is the Space Monitor series, which offers an interesting stand that clamps to your table. It allows you to lower the monitor to be flush with your desktop or raise it completely vertically to give you more desk space. It will be available in 27" 1440p or 32" 4K models, both with the Zero Height Adjustable Stand.
