Samsung unveils curved gaming monitors at CES 2016

With plenty of curved TVs on the market, Samsung is now pushing the curved screen goodness to the PC gaming market. At CES 2016 Samsung is showing off curved gaming, monitors include the CF591, CF391, CF390, and CF398. These monitors have the tightest curvature on the market with a radius of 1.8-meters.

Samsung says that the tight curve radius helps to give players a sense that the screen is surrounding them and pulling them into the action. Along with the cool curved screens, the monitors also support AMD FreeSync technology via HDMI. That tech synchronizes screen refresh rates with AMD graphics cards to reduce lag and stutter during gaming.

The CF591 is a frameless curved monitor with integrated 5W stereo speakers and a 178-degree viewing angle. It has a 27-inch screen and 1920 x 1080 resolution. The CF390 and CF391 monitors have 27-inch and 32-inch screen sizes respectively and have the same screen curvature as the previous monitor and the same resolution.

They also feature tilt and swivel bases and 16:9 aspect ratios. The 32-inch unit has a 5000:1 contrast ratio with both the other offerings with 3000:1. Pricing and availability for the monitors is unknown at this time.
