About this deal

The CRG90 is better in virtually every way, but it does come with caveats. The huge resolution and 120Hz FreeSync rate mean you’ll need a powerful graphics card to run games effectively – if you have a lesser GPU or want a 144Hz panel, the Asus is better.

It covered 89.5% and 82.8% of the DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB gamuts, too. The former figure is fine for HDR and only half a percent behind what DisplayHDR 1000 demands, but the latter is a little low and precludes this screen from the most demanding colour work. The Samsung’s huge resolution also means that you’ll need a beefy graphics card for gaming. The CRG90 uses 7.3 million pixels, which is less than 1 million behind a 4K screen and far more than the 4.1 million needed by the Asus. Graphical demands will also increase if you want to use AMD’s FreeSync adaptive sync software. It’s miles better than the DisplayHDR 400 standard seen on the Asus XG49VQ and many other screens: that entry-level protocol only requires brightness levels of 320 nits and 400 nits, and it makes no demands regarding DCI-P3 coverage.

The display comes with a VESA 100x100 adapter for mounting it on a monitor arm. You will need a heavy duty one due to the screen's weight and size. The width can also boost productivity. It’s great for apps where horizontal real estate is helpful, as the Samsung CRG90 is effectively two 1440p screens without a bezel – and its picture-by-picture modes can force the screen to actually function like this.

The CRG90’s protocols demand a consistent brightness level of 600 nits and a peak of 1000 nits, and this screen can frequently manage that: it got beyond 600 nits in full-screen white tests while sometimes dipping to 592 nits, and it managed to hit burst levels at 1000 nits – although in some areas it did occasionally dip to 958 nits.
