Samsung launches first Quantum Dot curved gaming monitor
DUBAI, March 2, 2017
Samsung has announced the launch of its newest industry-leading gaming monitor - the CFG70 curved monitor.
Designed specifically for professional gamers, it includes enhanced picture quality and player-friendly features for a truly immersive gaming experience.
The display was first introduced at the Gamescom 2016 and IFA 2016 conferences.
As the industry’s first curved gaming monitor to feature quantum dot technology, the CFG70 monitor (24- and 27-inch models) expresses brilliant and accurate colors across a 125 per cent sRGB spectrum. This added luminance produces a 3,000:1 contrast ratio and amplifies previously-hidden gaming details in both light and dark settings. The monitor also employs an environmentally-safe, cadmium-free design. It is available at Samsung brand shops and leading retailers for a recommended price of Dh1,499 ($408) for 24 inch screen and Dh1,999 ($544) for a 27 inch screen.
Karan Chopra, head of Display Solutions at Samsung Gulf Electronics added: “The UAE has a booming gaming industry. Gaming is increasingly being embedded into popular culture with events through the year including annual editions of Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC). With the new curved monitor, we are giving gamers an even more immersive experience, enveloping their field of vision in the game, while not straining their eyes. ”
According to Abu Dhabi’s media free zone authority twofour54, the gaming sector in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) is set to grow to $4.4 billion by 2022.
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 and 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 honour 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.
