Samsung is no stranger to producing gorgeous monitors for work and entertainment, but now the company is making a direct bid for your gaming den. The tech giant has taken the wraps off two new curved displays that leverage its quantum dot technology for gamers: the compact CFG70, and the ultra-wide, ultra-immersive CF791. Look for them later this year at $399 and $999, respectively.
The smaller, all-black CFG70 manages to look like a gaming peripheral without relying on extra-sharp angles or jarring red highlights. Its most notable feature is its a big blue LED light underneath the display, which will illuminate your equally colorful gaming peripherals while flickering in sync with whatever you’re playing.
The extra lighting is a nice touch, but I was more taken aback by just how flexible the CFG70 is. The monitor rests on a unique ball-and-joint stand, which lets you pivot it side to side or flip it vertically if you want to use it to keep up with your Twitch chat. Samsung’s $399 curved gaming monitor (a 27-inch model will run you $499) packs a 1080p screen with a fast 1ms response time and AMD FreeSync support, which should mean minimal lag and screen tearing for competitive players.
