Samsung's CHG90 has become the world's first VESA DisplayHDR 600 monitor

VESA's DisplayHDR standard was unveiled last week, bringing with it absolute requirements for High Dynamic Range (HDR) TVs and monitors, clearing up a lot of the confusion that surrounds today's high-end display hardware. 

Samsung has proudly revealed that their CHG90 and CHG70 series of QLED (Quantum Dot) displays all comply with VESA's DisplayHDR 600 standard, meeting the standard's luminance, colour gamut, bit depth and rise time requirements. Right now VESA's DisplayHDR standard has three levels, DisplayHDR 400, 600 and 1000. 

These displays also sport support for what AMD calls FreeSync 2, meeting AMD's HDR requirements while also supporting FreeSync with Low Framerate Compensation Technology (LFR). DisplayHDR 600 certification further demonstrates the capability of Samsung's QLED gaming displays, with VESA citing this display's use of HDR as "an industry standard-setter".  

Samsung's CHG90 QLED display comes with a screen size of 49-inches, a resolution of 3840x1080 and a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. This monitor is a 32:9 Super-Ultra-Wide screen.

VESA's DisplayHDR standard is designed to clear up the confusion surrounding what defines a "good" or a "bad" HDR display, setting strict requirements for each of the standard's three levels of HDR support. Some screens marketed with HDR support do not meet these display requirements, showcasing exactly how misused the term HDR is in today's display market. 

A summary of VESA's DisplayHDR 400, 600 and 1000 standards is available to view here
