Samsung Electronics Plugs into the Gaming Arena with New Curved Monitors
By expanding its presence in the gaming marketplace, Samsung Electronics will offer consumers innovative ways to get in the game. Especially with its first curved gaming monitors (the CF591, CF391 and CF390 models), Samsung expects to help transform the PC gaming experience.
First unveiled at CES in January 2016, Samsung’s curved gaming monitors are designed to match the natural shape of the human eye. This design includes a sharp 1800 mm (1800R) curvature radius that offers panoramic and immersive viewing angles and a less visually-strenuous experience. The CF591, CF391 and CF390 monitors feature a 3,000:1 contrast ratio that produces darker blacks and minimizes light leakage for a clearer and more complete on-screen presentation.
In entering the gaming market, Samsung also aims to deliver a smoother gaming experience that maintains viewers’ attention. Each of Samsung’s curved gaming monitors is supported by AMD FreeSync™ Technology Over HDMI®, which synchronizes screen refresh rates with users’ AMD graphics card frame rates to reduce input latency, stutter and lag.
“As the multi-billion dollar gaming industry continues to evolve, gamers demand high-quality displays that bring a vivid, lifelike experience to their PC,” said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to showcase how our new curved monitors bring unprecedented visual quality to the market’s most recognizable and popular games. As we continue to build our presence in this competitive sector, we look forward to further enhancing our displays to meet gamers’ most pressing visual and performance needs.”
Making a Play for Gamers with EA Games
Samsung’s CF591 curved monitors can easily be found at EA’s EA Play gaming convention, currently taking place (June 12-14, 2016) at the Novo at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. EA will use the CF591 monitor to preview several of its upcoming game releases, including FIFA 17, Madden NFL 17 and Titanfall 2, during the event.
Samsung also will launch a bundle promotion enabling players to experience the next-generation competition environment first-hand. Between June and September 2016, any U.S. or European consumer who purchases a new Samsung CF39 Series or CF591 curved monitor will receive a complimentary copy of a select EA games title*. Standard edition games available as part of the promotion include FIFA 16, Need for Speed, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline.
Promotion participants will receive a promo code on their receipt, via email and/or through the Samsung website (www.samsung.com). This code can be redeemed for the free game download through the EA website (www.ea.com).
