The CFG70 is Samsung’s latest Australian contender in the world of computer monitors, this time targeting the gaming industry with a range of products that marry an immersive curved display with contrast-rich Quantum Dot technology.
This line of monitors will be the first to boast Samsung’s coveted Quantum Dots – the same technology that it incorporated in its latest range of top-tier TVs – which provides accurate colour over an improved spectrum (125% of standard RGB) as well as an incredibly dynamic contrast ratio of 3000:1, for deep detail across lighter and darker scenes.
The Full HD monitors pack some reasonably high-performance features, making them ideal for today’s hefty gaming requirements. A response time of 1ms helps reduce motion blur and ghosting, while the FreeSync models (a G-Sync version is set to come at a later date) all but eliminate image tearing and stutter by synchronising your GPU with the monitors 144Hz refresh rate.
If you’re sporting an AMD graphics card, 24-inch and 27-inch models are currently available with FreeSync compatibility for $599.95 and $849.95 respectively, while a 27-inch G-Sync model has been announced for GeForce users but does not yet have a release date or price.
