The Samsung CF791 is one of the company’s newly announced curved gaming monitors. The sleek, ultra wide 34-inch gaming monitor will go for $999 and according to Samsung, the CF791 is the curviest monitor in the world. It apparently out-curves other curved monitors with a sharp 1500R curve.
It’s a 34 inches, with 3440×1440 max resolution and quantum-dot technology to deliver the startling color accuracy and an impressive 3000:1 contrast ratio.
The CF791 is not a 4K monitor, but it is very curvy and according to the company the monitor is ‘bezel less’ on three sides, making it an attractive choice for a multi-monitor setup. This monitor boasts a vivid VA LCD panel, instead of a more typical IPS panel, which Samsung claims it will reduce light leakage on the CF791 compared to similar monitors using IPS panels
The Samsung CF791 has a 100Hz refresh rate, and falling short of the more established 144Hz refresh rate. An upside however is that it has AMD FreeSync tech meaning stuttering and screen tearing will be eliminated. The monitor is able to use FreeSync both via DisplayPort and HDMI. The FreeSync over HDMI ability is a fairly recent development as it was only late last year that the AMD had announced the advancement and this is one of the first monitors to come out and include it.
Additionally, the CF791 will support advanced picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture modes, allowing users to view images from two inputs simultaneously – like dual monitor setup. It’ll also include optional plastic plates which can snap-on to disguise unsightly wiring.
There is no word on the pricing just yet, the video showed off the capabilities of the monitor, but not its price tag.
