Samsung to Globally Launch Their New CJ79 Curved QLED Monitor at IFA 2018 

At CES 2018, Samsung previewed a few curved QLED displays to be released later in 2018. This week Samsung announced it will be launching its CJ79 curved QLED monitor worldwide with distribution to Europe first at IFA later this week. The new CJ79 (Model name: C34J791) 34-inch curved QLED display is the world’s first with Thunderbolt 3 and features a 3,440 x 1,440 quantum dot screen (including a 125 percent sRGB color gamut), a wide 21:9 aspect ratio and a four-millisecond response time.

If you are unfamiliar of Thunderbolt 3 technology, computer ports with Thunderbolt 3 provide 40Gbps Thunderbolt, double the speed of the previous generation, USB 3.1 10Gbps or DisplayPort 1.2. This allows one computer port to connect to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. One cable can now provide four times the data, twice the video bandwidth of any other cable and supply up to 100W of power.

The CJ79 34-inch curved monitor is the first of its kind to feature Intel’s Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity. Per Samsung’s press release, the CJ79 34-inch screen features two Thunderbolt™ 3 ports that transmit display, data and power at a processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gpbs), eight times faster than USB 3.0, and simultaneously charges devices up to 85 watts(W) using a single cable.

The CJ79 34-inch monitor also includes HDMI, DisplayPort and USB 3.0 ports, and a pair of 7W speakers. It is currently compatible for both Macs and PCs.

Samsung’s CJ79 monitor will be available in Europe first and soon after available worldwide. Pricing for the CJ79 monitor has not been published yet. For more information about Samsung’s CJ79 please visit: or click here.
