Samsung Launches Two New Curved Gaming Monitors

CFG70 and CF791 Gaming Monitors Combine Quantum Dot Technology with
Enhanced Features for a More Immersive Gaming Experience

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Samsung Electronics extends its innovation in displays with the
release of its most powerful and visually compelling curved gaming
monitors to date. The CFG70 (available in 24 and 27 inch) and CF791
(34-inch) monitors provide distinguished curvatures of 1800R and 1500R,
respectively. Other best-in-class features include interactive LED
lighting, an intuitive user dashboard, and AMD FreeSync™ Technology for
the ultimate gaming experience.

“Incorporating the same quantum dot technology found in our incredible
TV lineup, the CFG70 and CF791 monitors are poised to deliver the most
realistic experience for gamers and consumers alike,” said Andrew
Sivori, Vice President, Consumer IT Marketing at Samsung Electronics
America. “In addition, we’ve bolstered color accuracy, refined the
display curvature and significantly reduced MPRT (Moving Picture/Pattern
Response Time).”

Quantum Dot Technology

The visual power of quantum dot technology found in Samsung’s
award-winning, industry-leading UHD televisions is now integrated into
the CFG70 and CF791 monitors. By incorporating quantum dot technology,
the monitors display a wide range of vivid and crisp colors, while
requiring less energy to do so. Both monitors express brilliant color
across a 125 percent sRGB spectrum, giving greater depth to blacks and
sharpening color intricacies. These color distinctions increase the
nuances of game play and far surpass display offerings available in
conventional monitors. In addition, the monitors are the first quantum
dot curved displays to feature a cadmium-free design, similar to all
Samsung 2016 SUHD TV’s.

Stunning Visual Experience

The CF791 and CFG70 leverage AMD FreeSync Technology over HDMI to
synchronize screen refresh rates (ranging from 100 Hz for the CF791 to
144 Hz for the CFG70) with users’ AMD graphics cards. This compatibility
reduces input latency, stutter and lag to produce a uniform full-screen
game display.

Each monitor features exceptional curvature (1,500R for the CF791 and
1,800R for the CFG70), which envelops users to create the feeling that
they’re part of the game. With a 1 m/s MPRT rate, the CFG70 display also
ensures seamless transitions between frames and settings during gameplay.

In addition, both monitors are designed to reduce eye strain and empower
a more comfortable long-term gameplay environment. To accomplish this,
the CF791 and CFG70 include blur reduction technology that activates
backlights when images appear. While this is happening, integrated line
scanning technology divides the backlight into four channels and
sequentially organizes its positioning to match featured on-screen
content. This synchronization minimizes visible blur and maintains
users’ focus on a continuous, distortion-free picture.

Enhanced Features

Beyond its on-screen visual enhancements, Samsung’s new CF791 monitor
features a sleek composition that adds ambience and style to any
environment. The display’s three-sided boundless design removes visual
distraction and keeps gamers focused on the screen rather than the
display itself. Players may also customize the monitor’s alignment to
match their unique ergonomic needs through both a tilt and height
adjustable stand.

To support convenient game management, the CFG70 includes Samsung’s
user-friendly Gaming UX OSD interface. Gamers engaged in competition can
access the interface’s intuitive dashboard to view all essential
settings, ranging from response time to refresh rate, in a single
glance. Gameplay settings can be easily adjusted through shortcut hot
keys located on the front and back of the monitor. Additionally, the
monitor has an innovative ball-and-joint mechanism that allows the neck
to seamlessly tilt, adjust height, rotate, and pivot, all without moving
the base. The CFG70 also incorporates interactive LED “Arena Lighting”
to provide a richer gaming experience.

Upcoming Previews

Samsung will be showcasing the new curved gaming monitors at IFA 2016 in
Berlin, Germany from September 2-7. Samsung’s booth will include
stations where visitors can sample several of today’s leading video game
titles on the CFG70 and CF791 monitors, with supporting large-format
SMART LED displays broadcasting the competition – and visual
presentation – to the wider IFA audience. Following IFA, the CFG70 and
CF791 monitors will be available in the U.S. in Q4 2016 at select
retailers. Pricing for the CFG70 will start at $399 (24”), and $499
(27”), while the CF791 will be $999.
