Eyes On With Samsung’s 34-Inch Curved Gaming Track

BERLIN—Avid gamers need the most efficient graphics, delivered on the quickest speeds, at the sharpest displays. And now they are able to have all of it with curves. On Thursday at IFA, Samsung unveiled 3 curved gaming displays: the CFG70, to be had in 24 or 27 inches, and the CF791, a 34-inch style. All 3 displays use Samsung’s quantum dot era. I were given to try Samsung’s sales space.

The 34-inch CF791 packs a three,440-by-1,440 show, whilst the smaller CFG70 fashions are available in at 1,920 by means of 1,080. Design-wise, the CFG70 displays are black, whilst the CF791 is available in white. All of them game very skinny bezels, and feature ball-and-joint mechanisms within the neck that you’ll tilt and rotate to regulate peak with out transferring the bottom.

Samsung’s quantum dot era is already to be had in its line of Extremely HD TVs. In line with the corporate, it makes for higher colour accuracy and a sharper image. That for sure seems to be true according to what I noticed on the display. The newest Name of Responsibility and a few sports activities titles actually popped. At the wider CF791 I additionally were given to take a look at Reflect’s Edge: Catalyst, which is a peculiar recreation to make use of to show off stunning graphics, since it is lovely bland.

With AMD graphics playing cards that use FreeSync, the displays have display refresh charges starting from 100Hz for the CF791 to 144Hz for the CFG70. And each and every CFG70 track has enter prolong of handiest 1ms. Mainly, that suggests video games performed at the smaller monitors (with AMD playing cards) can have much less enter lag and stutter (the bigger CF791 has 4ms of lag).

A consumer interface referred to as Gaming UX, which pops up over the display’s symbol with the click of a button (in the back of the bezel), has choices for image modes, black equalizers, and movement blur. However this selection seemed incomplete at the displays I noticed, and it is just to be had at the CFG70 fashions.
