Samsung CF791: 100Hz 34-inch FreeSync VA Curved Gaming Monitor

Samsung CF791

The Samsung CF791 or Samsung C34F791 is one of the company’s many newly announced curved gaming monitors. The 21:9 ultrawide monitor has an 1800R curve which is what curvature the other widescreen monitors in the series, the Samsung CF591 and Samsung CF39, also have. The 34-inch monitor has a 3440 x 1440 resolution which gives it a very good pixel density of 110. The quantum dot technology gives the monitor a 125% sRGB color gamut meaning that colors will be more vivid and simply look better.

The Samsung CF791 has a 100Hz refresh rate, falling short of the more established 144Hz refresh rate. An upside, however, is that it has AMD FreeSync technology meaning stuttering and screen tearing will be eliminated. The monitor is able to use FreeSync both via DisplayPort and HDMI. This FreeSync over HDMI ability is a fairly recent development as it was only late last year that AMD had announced the advancement and this is one of the first monitors to come out and include it.

It does not have an IPS or TN panel, but rather the more uncommonly seen VA panel and in doing so allows for much deeper blacks and less light leakage in corners. In spite of this Samsung has gone even further and developed a Game mode that even further enhances the blackness. The gaming monitor has a 3000:1 contrast ratio which is three times as strong as we typically see. This monitor can also be used for business purposes as it also allows for:

  • Picture-By-Picture (PBP), meaning you can connect and view image outputs from two different devices
  • Picture-In-Picture (PIP), meaning you can display media with another at the same time

The display has a unique silver and white color combination. It is nearly bezel-less and is also VESA compatible meaning you can easily use a monitor arm if you so choose. Ergonomically the monitor is limited, but has a unique Swing HAS design that lets you smoothly adjust the height. Two 7 watt speakers are integrated into the monitor for convenient listening.

The monitor is expected to be released in the second half of 2016. No word on pricing.

    yup “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!” rolling xfire 390’s here i think display port 1.2a can handle this res at 100hz right? two worries from perfect

    1- will the va panel ruin the color accuracy as i do photo/render work??
    2-what will the freesync range be on this thing if like (30-100) and better golden, 40-100 is ehh, 50,60 -100 I pass as that is still one hell of a gpu load to stay above 50 60 fps at all times.

    if 1 and 2 are ok I WILL CHASE YOU DOWN SAMSUNG AND THROW MY MONEY AT YOU!!!
