According to Samsung, this is the world’s first 4K screen with a 240Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. That means that not only does it have one of the highest resolutions you can find on a monitor, but it also has super-fast refresh rates and response times for gaming performance.

Also for gaming, the monitor supports FreeSync Premium Pro and G-Sync, so you won’t have to worry about any screen tearing or other performance issues.

Of course, there’s more to a monitor than how high the resolution is and how fast it is. Thankfully, Samsung also included a high 2000 nit peak brightness and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

The monitor comes with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1000R curvature, which will help suck you into the content on your monitor. If you’re playing a game, this curvature plus the resolution and refresh rate will create insane gaming experiences.

As far as size goes, the monitor is 32″, so it’s plenty large enough for the demands of modern PC gamers and high-end computer users. It even has lights on the rear that sync with the content on your screen to immerse you in your PC games.

Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t reveal the price or release date for the monitor, so we’re not exactly sure when you can feast your eyes on its beauty in your home. One thing’s for sure: it won’t be cheap.
