Samsung steps up its gaming monitor offerings with a curved model that has a speedy 1ms response time.
Samsung announced two new gaming monitors at IFA 2016.
The sleek, ultra wide 34-inch CF791 will go for $999 (converts to AU$1,330 and £760), and the CFG70 monitors, which come in 24-and 27-inch variants, are priced at $399 (roughly AU$530, £300) and $499 (around AU$660, £380), respectively. The new monitors notably have curved edges, a design trend Samsung is fully embracing.
The CF791 is a flashy white and silver 34-inch model, but the more subdued CFG70 works better for gaming purposes. It has AMD FreeSync Technology and a speedy 1ms response time. It's also competitively priced in comparison to other 24- and 27-inch gaming monitors.
As an electronic giant that makes a little bit of everything (TVs, tablets, smartwatches, fridges, baby monitors, the list goes on) Samsung is no stranger to computer monitors, but gaming monitors are not something the company has focused on much, until now. Samsung is committed to curved gaming monitors with fast response times and has plans on making UHD models as soon as next year. If you can't wait that long, the CF791 and CFG70 are expected to hit stores in Q4.
