THE increasing sophistication and complexity of games has seen gamers demanding the very best in monitors in order to exploit every nuance of a game.
Rising to the challenge is Samsung Malaysia Electronics as the company launched its first curved gaming monitor, CFG70.
Available in 24-inch and 27-inch sizes, Samsung said the CFG70 is designed from the ground up for gamers with a curved shaped design that offers a 178-degree ultra-wide angle viewing angle that is optimised for games.
It utilises the company’s Quantum Dot technology, which is normally found on its high-end consumer TVs, to express brilliant and accurate colours across a 125% sRGB spectrum.
“Optimised to bring lifelike picture quality, the CFG70 is an incredible display for gamers whether they are casual or competitive, given the growing popularity of e-Sports,” said Samsung Malaysia Electronics president Lee Sang Hoon.
The CFG70 amplifies players’ gaming experience with a high 3,000: 1 constrast ratio that is said to be three times darker than conventional monitors, delivering deep blacks that immerse gamers deeper in the game.
Catering to games across different genres, the CFG70 boasts a super quick one millisecond (ms) response time that allows it to handle fast-moving action in games be it a racing or action game.
The CFG70 also leverages on integrated AMD FreeSync technology over HDMI to synchronise the screen’s blazing quick 144Hz refresh rate with user’s AMD graphics cards to minimise image tearing.
The monitor has a dual-hinge arm that allows gamers to freely adjust its height, swivel and pivot it to an optimum viewing angle, allowing them to better enjoy their game.
Samsung’s CFG70 curved gaming monitor will available at select retail outlets starting Jan 27. The 24-inch variant retails for RM1,699 while the 27-inch model will retail for RM2,099.
