Samsung first teased its new Quantum Dot-based monitor at Gamescom and IFA earlier this year, with the CFG70 being the world's first curved gaming monitor with Quantum Dot technology, and a super-quick 144Hz refresh rate, backed by AMD's FreeSync technology.

How does Quantum Dot technology work? It's used to increase brightness, improve color accuracy, and reach higher color saturations - all good things for monitors. It uses nanoparticles that filter light from LEDs into primary colors for LCDs, which provides a much larger range of colors to display. Samsung has been using Quantum Dot technology inside of TVs for a while, but now we have the 24-inch and 27-inch gaming monitors that are the first to use Quantum Dot tech.

Samsung has used a 1920x1080 native resolution on both displays, with 125% sRGB, 3000:1 contrast ratio, and a massive 144Hz refresh rate that's backed by AMD's FreeSync technology. We also have an 1800R curved VA panel with 178-degree viewing angles, and something Samsung calls Eye Saver mode and Flicker Free technology that removes the blue light that as PC Gamer says "throws your body clock out of line when you're on your PC at night".

Samsung also says that this is the industry's first curved monitor with a 1ms response time, and has some awesome customizability with swivel, height, pivot and full dual-hinge arm at the back so that you can adjust the monitor to your specific liking. The company hasn't announced pricing just yet, but that shouldn't be too much further away.
