We all know Red Dead Redemption 2 is a gorgeous looking game (at least when it’s not crashing and freezing), but holy moly does it look stupidly good in ultrawide. Specifically, the kind of ultrawide made possible by Samsung’s new CRG9 monitor, which is an even higher specced version of last year’s ludicrous 49in, 32:9 CHG90.
Whereas the CHG90 had a resolution of 3840×1080 (making it effectively two 1080p monitors stuck together), the CRG9 bumps that up to 5120×1440, increasing its pixel count to the equivalent of two 1440p monitors strapped together instead. It’s a mad thing to behold, and man alive if there was ever a screen tailor-made for Red Dead 2’s cinematic cowpoke antics, this is the one. Let me tell you, it is stunning.
