As the gaming market continues to enjoy rapid growth worldwide, gamers expect advanced display technologies that can bring out the latest video game features, which is exactly what Samsung’s new CFG70 curved gaming monitor aims to do.
With embedded Quantum dot technology and an ultra-fast responsetime, the company’s first dedicated hardcore gaming monitor allows for a truly optimized gaming experience. Other best-in-class features include interactive LED lighting, an intuitive user dashboard and AMD FreeSync™ technology.
Fast and Smooth Game Play
The CFG70 is the first curved monitor on the market that provides a 1ms Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT)—the response time that can be recognized by the naked eye—thanks to Samsung’s advanced impulsive scanning technology. This technology synchronizes the LED backlight with the actual image frame, which nearly eliminates motion blur across the entire screen.
This is especially beneficial for gamers who enjoy playing action-packed first person shooter (FPS) and racing games, where superfast scene transitions are especially essential for efficient gameplay.
The CFG70 also provides an industry-leading 144Hz refresh rate (the number of times that a monitor refreshes its displayed image per second) to ensure a seamless and uninterrupted presentation.
Furthermore, the CFG70 lets users take full advantage of AMD’s FreeSync™ feature, which dynamically synchronizes the monitor’s refresh rate to match the output of the graphic card. As a result, users can enjoy playing games with a smoother, more uniform frame display without tearing or stuttering for a far more fluid gaming experience.
Vivid, Crisp Colors
As one of the first curved Quantum dot monitors (along with Samsung’s CF791), the CFG70 expresses brilliant colors across a 125-percent sRGB spectrum while employing an environmentally-safe, cadmium-free design. This luminance emphasizes a range of otherwise-hidden game details in both light and dark settings, bringing unprecedented visual realism to captivate even the most hardcore gamers.
Thanks to the CFG70’s VA panel, the monitor also boasts a 3000:1 contrast ratio, which means that users can enjoy deeper blacks, more pristine whites and sharper detail. The VA panel also has minimized light leakage, so that darker scenes appear more uniform in low-light environments.
Comfortable and Immersive Viewing
The CFG70 (available in 24- and 27-inch models) provides a distinguished curvature of 1800R, which envelopes users to create the feeling that they’re a part of the game.
Not only does the monitor’s curve allow for a more immersive experience, but it also optimizes viewing comfort. In fact, according to clinical studies, a curved monitor is more effective at reducing eye strain than conventional, flat monitors.
Likewise, Eye Saver Mode improves viewing comfort by reducing harmful blue light emissions, and the CFG70’s Flicker Free function protects users’ eyes from the strain associated with flickering screens.
Optimized Gaming Experience
To further amplify the details of today’s hottest games, each CFG70 monitor undergoes meticulous pre-shipment factory calibration to optimize contrast and color presentation for even the most complex game designs, including compatibility with FPS, RTS, RPG and AOS genres.
This calibration fine-tunes a variety of display settings, including black gamma levels for enhanced brightness and white balance levels for temperature management, while ensuring a sharp, brilliant picture regardless of the game in play.
For added game management convenience, the CFG70 includes Samsung’s sophisticated yet user-friendly Gaming UX on-screen display (OSD) interface. Gamers can access the interface’s intuitive dashboard to view all essential settings, from response time to refresh rate, at a glance. Users in turn can adjust gameplay settings easily through shortcut hot keys located on the front and back of the monitor.
The CFG70 also incorporates Arena Lighting which aligns the monitor’s 1800R curvature with sound interactive LED lighting, located at the bottom of the display. These lights become more vivid as the game’s sound increases, keeping users focused during the most paramount moments, all the while enhancing the thrill of victory.
Additionally, the CFG70 comes with a dual-hinge stand that enables players to adjust the height of the monitor freely. Its innovative ball-and-joint mechanism allows the neck to seamlessly tilt, rotate and pivot—all without the base having to be moved. It is VESA supported, and boasts a DP and two HDMI ports.
