Quantum dot curved monitors

This week, Samsung Electronics will reinforce its leadership in the growing gaming market with the release of its most powerful and visually-compelling curved gaming monitors yet - the CFG70 (24- and 27-inch models) and CF791 (34-inch model) displays.
As the first curved quantum dot gaming monitors, Samsung's CFG70 and CF791 express brilliant colors across a 125-percent sRGB spectrum, while employing an environmentally-safe cadmium-free design. This luminance emphasizes a range of otherwise-hidden game details in both light and dark settings, offering unprecedented visual realism designed to capture the attention of even the most hardcore gamers.
To further amplify the details in today's advanced gaming titles, each CFG70 and CF791 monitor undergoes rigorous factory calibration prior to shipment. This treatment includes optimization of various settings, including black gamma levels for enhanced brightness and white balance levels for temperature management, enabling gamers to enjoy a sharp and brilliant picture regardless of the game in play.
"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."
Samsung's quantum dot technology is already featured in the company's UHD televisions and including this tested technology in the new CFG70 and CF791 displays brings the intricacies of today's video games to life.
The new CFG70 curved monitor incorporates a host of user-friendly features to create a premium multi-sensory gaming destination. The CFG70's "Super Arena" design aligns 1800R curvature with sound interactive LED lighting that lets players fully experience the thrill of victory. This format also includes 1 m/s moving picture response time, making it the first curved gaming monitor to offer such functionality. A rapid refresh rate of up to 144 Hz further ensures a seamless and uninterrupted presentation.
With a 1500R curvature (indicating a curvature radius of 1,500 mm) design, Samsung's CF791 is the most curved gaming monitor currently on the market. Combined with a 100 Hz refresh rate and embedded AMD FreeSync™ Technology, functionality that synchronizes screen refresh rates with gamers' AMD graphics cards, the CF791 monitor offers consistent full-screen presentation. Additionally, the CF791's ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio further preserves content quality during multi-screen competition.
