Sam­sung is lead­ing the charge for Thun­der­bolt 3 con­nec­tiv­ity to mon­i­tors with a 34-inch QLED curved UHD mon­i­tor.

The CJ79 will be launched at IFA and is aimed at both creative and busi­ness au­di­ences by de­liv­er­ing am­ple screen real es­tate sup­ported by a high data rate and large power de­liv­ery ca­pac­ity.

The two Thun­der­bolt 3 ports on the mon­i­tor each trans­mit dis­play, data and power at 40 Gi­ga­bits per sec­ond while charg­ing de­vices up to 85 watts.

Multi-task­ing is en­abled via Pic­ture-byPic­ture and Pic­ture-in-Pic­ture fea­tures, al­low­ing for two sources to dis­play side by side or for a 25 per cent scaled source to be shown within a full screen dis­play of an­other source re­spec­tively.

At 3440 x 1440, the mon­i­tor has an as­pect ra­tio of 21:9 and a 1500R cur­va­ture, de­signed to be close to the cur­va­ture rep­re­sented in the hu­man eye for de­liv­er­ing rich de­tail and com­fort­able view­ing.

Good pic­ture qual­ity in the CJ79 is re­alised through Quan­tum Dot tech­nol­ogy, pro­vid­ing for de­tail across 125 per cent of the sRGB colour spec­trum. Curved VA tech­nol­ogy pro­duces a 3000:1 con­trast ra­tio to de­liver deeper blacks and brighter whites.

The mon­i­tor is also AMD FreeSync en­abled, syn­chro­nis­ing the re­fresh rate to the graph­ics card of your com­puter to con­trol im­age tear­ing and stut­ter­ing dur­ing game play or video play­back.

Sam­sung will also be launch­ing the CJ89 at IFA too. This model is con­nected via USB 3 as op­posed to Thun­der­bolt 3, how­ever it is sig­nif­i­cantly larger at 3840 x 1200 with a wider as­pect ra­tio of 32:10.

The CJ89 comes with a built-in KVM switch which gives it the abil­ity to run mul­ti­ple in­put de­vices.

Sam­sung’s Thun­der­bolt 3 QLED curved mon­i­tor, the CJ79 will be avail­able in Aus­tralia from Septem­ber 3 with an RRP of $1,599.
