Ultrawide and curved

Samsung announced two new curved gaming monitors, including this 34-inch stunner, the CF791.

Committed to the curve

The CFG70 is a more subdued model, but it features AMD FreeSync technology and a 1ms response time.

34-inches wide

But back to the CF791. Did I mention it's a whole 34-inches wide?

Not a wireless charging station

It has a flat base, which deceivingly looks like it could be a wireless charging station, but it's not.

Plenty of ports

There are two HDMI ports to sataisfy your HD needs.

1500R curvature

It's one of Samsung's curviest monitors ever.

Average aesthetic

In comparison, the CFG70 looks a little boring, however it has an advantage over the ultrawide model thanks to its faster response time.

Ergonomic design

The monitor can swivel and pivot.

Two versions

Even when rotated vertically, the monitor's curves are obvious.
