Samsung unveils new curved gaming monitors at CES

If you're a gamer CES 2016 has been quite the convention, but the show isn't done for those who enjoy booting up titles and blowing things up on-screen. Samsung has unveiled new 27-inch curved gaming monitors, offering an immersive experience for those who enjoy getting lost in the action and adventure. The new CF591, CF391, CF390 and CF398 displays curve with a radius of 1.8 meters, wrapping around the owner.

As well as featuring curves in all the right places, Samsung's new screens also help prevent eye strain and fatigue from those long sessions with embedded flicker-free and Eye Saver technologies. Better yet, the company has worked with AMD to include the latter's FreeSync over HDMI, which should also help reduce input latency, stutter and lag when coupled with a supported AMD graphics card.

Overall, these new displays certainly look and sound awesome. We'll have to see when they're eventually released. Unfortunately, Samsung mentioned no word on pricing or availability.

  • Gaming monitors are launching at vey fast pace.
  • If only they would advance the tech without raising costs for some good products.
  • "curves in all the right places"... Wish this world didn't stereotype women at every chance it gets
  • I really just interpret the comment to say that it is a really sexy/well built hardware. For some this comment may bring to mind their perception of a sexy woman, for others the same may imply for a man. I see no issue with this.
  • What I'm referring to is society's label on women that in order to be a "good woman", she needs to have all the right curves in all the right places. It's placing pressure on women to look a certain way to please the masses, other than having women be happy with who they are and how they look. The "expectation" that women need to look that way is what I have the issue with. Naturally thin women should feel just as happy with their bodies as naturally thicker women, the same as naturally curvy women. I'm not saying that having a fit and toned body is not something to strive for, but "fit and toned" will be different for a 90lbs woman vs one who is 150lbs. 
  • where did a woman come in dude. cant a monitor have 'curves in the right places'. Its your kind of mentality that see's negative in every normal stuff thats ruining the world. there certianly was no woman refered here and you don't need to make unnecessary referances.
  • I got plenty of curves. Am not a woman.
  • Right
  • These curved displays should all be in 21:9, rather than 16:9/10.
  • Exactly. 21:9 is the way to go for curved. I was hoping to see some new ultrawides at CES but haven't seen any yet.
  • Just an excuse to charge more for monitor tech which is actually quite cheap these days.
  • Specs?
