Samsung has just teased its upcoming 34-inch monitor, with the CF791 featuring a 3440x1440 native resolution and a refresh rate of up to 100Hz. Samsung's upcoming CF791 display will also have support for AMD's FreeSync technology.

Samsung says that the VA panel in its new display offers better contrast, and reduced light leakage when compared to IPS panels, especially when it comes to curved displays. The upcoming CF791 is "the most curved in the world" according to Samsung, with a curve of 1500R. Samsung is using quantum-dot technology, with Samsung explaining that the shift to quantum-dot allows them to reproduce 125% of the sRGB gamut.,

Radeon owners will want to enjoy AMD's FreeSync technology on the Samsung CF791, since it will offer 3440x1440 at 100Hz with FreeSync on top, offering a super-smooth UltraWide gaming experience. Another nice touch is that Samsung has made the monitor "bezel-less" on three sides, with the CF791 looking mighty sharp with its looks.

As soon as this news goes live, I'm shifting to my inbox and sending an email to AMD to see when I can get my grubby hands-on this display - I'll need it to prepare for Vega, right guys?
