Samsung launched their CFG70 144Hz HDR FreeSync monitors

 
Samsung launched their CFG70 144Hz HDR FreeSync monitors, using Quantum Dot display technology for enhanced image detail.
 
Samsung's CFG70 monitors will come in 24" and 27" sizes and come with an 1800R curvature, making these displays the world's first Quantum Dot curved screens to hit the consumer market. 
 
These displays will come with a 3000:1 contrast ratio and a Moving Picture Response Time (MPST) of 1ms, wich combined with this display 125% sRGB coverage will allow this monitor to offer enthusiast-grade display performance for both gamers and professionals.  
Below is a quote from Samsung's Vice President of Visual Displays, Seog-gi Kim, who states that this is Samsung's best gaming display to date.   

  

    With the introduction of quantum dot technology to our pioneering curved monitors, Samsung offers a look into the future of gaming, along with a level of picture quality like the industry has never seen before,

The CFG70 makes gamers feel as if they are part of the action, and represents Samsung’s most powerful and visually-compelling curved monitor to date.

 

This display's only downside is that it operates at a resolution of 1080p, though Samsung is currently working on a 21:9, 100Hz 3440x1440p variant called the CF291. All of these displays should arrive at retailers soon, supporting DisplayPort 1.3 and offering unparalleled levels of colour accuracy in the current gaming display market.

Right now the CFG70 has a price of $399 for the 24" version and $499 for the 27" version.

The only thing I want to know is what is the FreeSync range? Does it actually go all the way to the 144Hz refresh rate or does it cap out at say 90? But I would probably buy this if I had the money on hand and if reviews say it is good as a gaming monitor.

Also for anyone curious the specs say it is a VA Panel Type.Quote

Weirdly the article says HDR but nowhere in the product video or the official product page does it mention support for an HDR standard such as HDR-10 or Dolby Vision.Quote

Their quantum dot stuff is HDR. They have the wider colour gamut of 125% sRGB and their max luminance is much higher than non-HDR offerings. The HDR rec2020 spec is very high and manufacturers are only just starting to enter this range, so the HDR stuff on display today is still very entry-level.Quote
