CES 2019 - Lenovo announced its new Legion gaming brand at CES 2019 this week, with a new flagship 43.4-inch UltraWide monitor that rolls out with an interesting native resolution and super-fast 144Hz refresh rate.

The new Lenovo Legion Y44w rolls out with a 43.4-inch panel with a super-wide 32:10 aspect ratio which results in a native resolution of 3840 x 1200, which is a big deal in 2019. It feels like a decade ago because it was, that 1200p monitors were a thing. I remember my beloved HP LP3065 monitor, a 30.5-inch 2560 x 1600 panel which felt huge thanks to its 1600p versus 1440p vertical pixels at the time. This was thanks to the 16:10 aspect ratio versus the 16:9 mainstream ratio at the time.

 

Lenovo will have quite a few fans that will think twice now when buying a display thanks to the 32:10 aspect ratio, it won't feel so super-wide as it'll also be noticeably taller. The 3840 x 1200 resolution is joined by a fast 144Hz refresh rate, with support for AMD FreeSync 2 technology.

 

The new Lenovo Legion Y44w will be available for purchase in April 2019 for $1199.
