SEOUL, Korea – August 27, 2018 – Samsung Electronics has expanded its ground-breaking curved display line-up upon the global launch of the new CJ79 (Model name: C34J791) monitor at IFA 2018.

Compatible with Macs and PCs, the CJ79 features two Thunderbolt™ 3 ports that transmit display, data and power at a superhero processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gpbs), eight times faster than USB 3.0, and simultaneously charges devices up to 85 watts(W), all through a single cable.
“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.”
Working on Multiple Projects Simultaneously
The CJ79 offers a clear and crisp picture quality while providing a seamless dual monitor experience on a single screen. The 3440x1440 ultra-wide curved display with its 21:9 aspect ratio provides all users with the workspace needed to multi-task efficiently and in comfort. With the Picture-by-Picture (PBP) feature, professionals can display two sources and for optimal multi-tasking, the Picture-in-Picture (PIP) feature allows users to resize the second source to up to 25 percent of the screen and position it anywhere for a more readable format.
The industry’s sharpest, 1,500R curved ultra-wide screen, is engineered to follow the natural curve of the eye for a more immersive and comfortable viewing experience. With the height-adjustable stand and tilt functionality, CJ79 lets users customize the positions meeting their most comfortable viewing parameters. Furthermore, the Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity, a new level of capability to charge Mac or PC let users connect to additional Thunderbolt™ 3 or USB devices directly to the monitor.
Supreme Picture Quality and Speed
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 far surpassing conventional monitors and amplifies previously hidden details across the entire screen through pristine shades, deeper blacks and brighter whites.
The AMD FreeSync over HDMI and Display Port synchronizes the refresh rate of graphic cards for the CJ79 to reduce image tearing and stutter, providing seamless gameplay and video playback for uninterrupted viewing.
