Samsung Unveils The World’s First Quantum Dot Curved Gaming Monitor
John Williamson / 4 years ago
Samsung has been at the forefront of innovative display technologies for a considerable time and continues to push the boundaries even further. The company’s latest creation is the world’s first curved gaming monitor based on quantum dot technology. Samsung has compiled two models, a 24-inch and another 27-inch version which provide a stellar gaming experience. In particular, the quantum dot panels are capable of a 125 percent sRGB colour spectrum and 3000:1 contrast ratio. Not only that, the CFG70 curved monitor employs an environmentally safe, cadmium-free design. Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said about the new monitor range:
“With the introduction of quantum dot technology to our pioneering curved monitors, Samsung offers a look into the future of gaming, along with a level of picture quality like the industry has never seen before,”
“The CFG70 makes gamers feel as if they are part of the action, and represents Samsung’s most powerful and visually-compelling curved monitor to date.”
Fast Speed and Smooth Game Play
By combining Samsung’s advanced motion blur reduction technology with its VA panel, the CFG70 is the first curved monitor to produce a 1 ms moving picture response time (MPRT). The rapid MPRT rate reduces display transitions between moving and animated objects, and in turn eliminates potential visual distractions.
The CFG70 also leverages integrated AMD FreeSync Technology over HDMI functionality to synchronize the screen’s 144 Hz refresh rate with users’ AMD graphics cards. This connectivity minimizes image tearing, input latency and stutter that can disrupt gameplay and escalate visual fatigue.
Optimized Gaming Experience
Samsung has equipped the CFG70 with a range of user-friendly gaming UX that drives more convenient and easily-accessible game management. The CFG70 includes a dedicated gaming interface with an intuitive settings dashboard to better allow gamers to modify and personalize their gameplay settings. Each CFG70 monitor also offers a series of hotkeys on the front and back of the display for users to easily adjust gameplay settings.
To further inspire gamer immersion and bring out the best in even the most complex game designs, including compatibility with the FPS, RTS, RPG and AOS genres, each CFG70 monitor undergoes rigorous pre-shipment factory calibration. This process optimizes various settings, including contrast ratios, black gamma levels for enhanced brightness and white balance levels for temperature management. As a result, gamers can enjoy a sharp and brilliant picture regardless of the game in play.
Comfortable and Immersive Viewing with the Curved Design
The CFG70’s “Super Arena” design, featuring industry-best 1,800R curvature and a 178-degree ultra-wide viewing angle, is formatted to match the natural curve of the human eye. Complementary sound-interactive LED lighting further creates a lifelike presentation and keeps users focused during the most paramount moments.
Additionally, the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP) recently named the CFG70 as a recipient of its annual Good Design Awards, which honor technologies that “improve the quality of life, industry and society.” The JDP acknowledged the efficiency and performance of the CFG70’s advanced gaming interface and convenience-driving composition.
Quantum dot technology is an exciting development and provides a significantly better image with a better colour range and enhanced contrast ratio. When coupled with the curved screen, the viewing experience is bound to be superb and I cannot wait to see this combination first hand.
