At IFA this week, Samsung will announce a set of two new curved gaming monitors including the CFG70 and CF791.
“As the gaming market continues to enjoy rapid worldwide growth, gamers expect advanced display technologies that can bring out the latest video game features and optimize the gameplay experience,” said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “By enhancing our pioneering curved gaming monitors with quantum dot technology, our CFG70 and CF791 displays further surround players and make them feel as if they are part of the game. We are excited to demonstrate this futuristic and immersive gaming environment at IFA 2016.”
The CF791 is the higher-end version of the two (pictured above), featuring a 1500R curvature, Samsung say that it is the “most curved gaming monitor currently on the market”. It also features a 100Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync technology inbuilt and an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio.
Samsung has also designed the display with what they call a “boundless design”, they say that this “removes visual distraction and helps gamers stay focused on the screen, rather than the display itself”. Basically, you will be able to customise the monitor’s alignment vertically.
The second of the two monitors is the CFG70, which features a “Super Arena” design, 1800R curvature, sound interactive LED lighting, 1 m/s moving picture response time (which Samsung claims to be the first time such functionality has been included in a monitor), and a 144Hz refresh rate.
This can also be controlled via Samsung’s Gaming UX OSD interface, for customizability.
Samsung has yet to announce any pricing or availability details for the monitors, but if we do hear more we will let you know.
