I'm one of the biggest advocates of UltraWide monitors, so when Samsung announced they're working on 32:9 aspect ratio gaming displays, my excitement meter reached its end - and luckily I also have an UltraWide excitement meter.

Samsung teases its massive 49-inch 'mega-wide' panel with its 32:9 aspect ratio, something the company refers to as the "Grand Circle" format. It will rock a 3840x1080 resolution (which Samsung refers to as DFHD, or double full HD), on VA panel technology and a super-curvy 1800R curvative. The new 3840x1080 resolution panels will support up to 144Hz, with options for both AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync.

The next monitor Samsung announced was the 'double 24.7-inch' which comes in at 44 inches, and a 29:9 aspect ratio. It is built from 2 x 24.7-inch displays, which end up being 44 inches in diagonal size. This new 44-inch monitor is meant to replace dual 24-inch displays, offering the higher 3840x1200 resolution.

We will see the displays reaching a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz, which is absolutely fine for all first-person shooters - and even twitch shooters like CS:GO, and all other eSports games.

Samsung has production set for September 2017 - meaning we'll see them teased later this year, and most likely at CES 2018 in early-January.
