The upcoming CES 2017 which will be held from January 5 to January 8 at the Las Vegas Conventional Center will see a whole lot of new gadgets rolled out by the tech giants in the industry. From smartphones and wearable to the latest desktops, the event will also see the unveiling of the much-awaited flagships of the big consumer electronics manufacturer. Samsung is reportedly one of those companies whose device line-up is the largest and among all these gizmos, there is a product which gaming enthusiasts would kill to get their hands on. The South Korean company is all set to launch the new CH711 and CFG70 quantum dot curved monitor at the upcoming event targeted at hardcore gamers and people who want a next-to-real visual entertainment experience.
For those unaware of Quantum Dot technology, they are actually semiconductor nanocrystals, which are quite similar to traditional OLED displays. However, they allow the display to become brighter, have better visual fidelity which includes improved colour accuracy and saturation.
The first monitor Samsung is set to showcase is the Samsung CH711 Quantum Dot Curved Monitor. It is available in 27″ or 31.5″ sizes and has a 1,800R curvature. Both of these models will feature a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440px and support 125% sRGB colour coverage. The company promises a 178-degree viewing angle, anyway, and says the monitor gives a “richer and more vibrant colour from any viewing distance.”
Another monitor introduced by Samsung is the more gamer-centric Samsung CFG70 which has a 144Hz refresh rate, 1080p resolution, 1ms response time and AMD FreeSync support. It has a ‘Gaming UX’ user interface and ‘advanced calibration options’ which allows the monitor to optimise the image output depending on the types of games you play.Samsung also adds that it features HDMI ports, but there are not many other details at this stage. There appears to only be a single colour option, which is white. The CH711 will be released early in 2017, according to Samsung.
