Samsung announces its formal launch of two new curved gaming monitors—the CFG70 and CF791—at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) Berlin 2016.

The monitors make use of the same quantum dot technology present in the company’s UHD television products with a 125 percent sRGB spectrum relative luminance level.

The CFG70 is available in 24 and 27-inch variants and features 1800R curvature, 1 meter per second moving picture response time and a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz.

The CF791 sports a 1500R curvature, which Samsung says will be the most curved gaming monitor available at launch. The 34-inch, 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio monitor will support AMD FreeSync which synchronizes the monitor’s refresh rates with AMD graphics cards at 100 Hz.

The release will be part of Samsung Electronics’ September 1 press conference at the Messe Berlin event center’s City Cube Hall.
