Samsung launches three 100Hz+ HDR FreeSync displays

 

In the past, the world of PC monitors lacked true innovation allowing a high-quality display to easily outlast all other components in a PC, whether the monitor be for use in gaming or work related tasks.

Now the landscape is very different, with increasingly high-resolution displays becoming commonplace, with technologies like FreeSync and G-Sync eliminating unwanted shuttering and tearing and HDR compatibility bringing with it higher quality colour as well as deeper blacks and more true to life image quality. 

Today, Samsung has officially announced three new PC displays which feature quantum dot technology, HDR support, AMD FreeSync and support for refresh rates of 100-144Hz depending on the chosen display. 

First, we have the Samsung CF791, a 34" 3440x1440 VA display that offers 100Hz refresh rates and a sexy 1500R curve, which alongside this monitor's HDR support makes this one of the highest-grade displays that are available today.  

Samsung has also launched their new 1080p CFG70 monitors, which will be available in sizes of 24" and 27" and come with an ultra-low 1ms response time and 125% colour gamut support.  These displays will come with a curve of 1800R.

 Below are the full specifications of these new displays, which will come in at $999 for the 34" 3440x1440 CF791 and $399 and $499 for the 24" and 27" CFG70 displays respectively.

 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.

Looks interesting, but nothing big enough for my system. I play from the sofa so I need at least 40".Quote

That CF791 would be splendid. I don't think I'm ready for that kind of screen yet, though. I might wait for the technology to improve and the prices to drop over the next two years and then upgrade.Quote

You'll be wanting to look at TVs not monitors then. As far as I know this is one of the first HDR monitors, but there's been a few HDR TVs.Quote

Yeah. It's frustrating because I don't have a TV license which means all that SMART stuff that makes TV's expensive is either completely useless or already handled by my PC (not to mention the legal grey area of having receiving equipment on the UK without a license).

There's a 43" 4K monitor from Philips I've had my eye on. No HDR or Freesync though but it's the cheapest non-SMART panel I can find at a decent size these days.Quote

The TV licensing issue you're referring to affects me here in Ireland as well. There was talk for a while of taxing smartphones and PC's as people stopped using televisions and were migrating to Netflix, Hulu, YouTube etc., but it fell flat. It was initially discussed around the same time as the water charges were being introduced, which has been the most controversial thing in Ireland for many years. I can't remember the last time the Irish people were this mad. I think that's partially why they dropped the smartphone taxation; the people would quite literally storm the Dublin's head buildings in protest.Quote
