Samsung Announces Its First Quantum Dot Curved Gaming Monitor In Malaysia

By: Low Chern Lin


Malaysia Electronics enters the Malaysian competitive gaming scene with the launch of its industry-leading curved CFG70 Gaming Monitor, Samsung’s first curved gaming monitor utilizing Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology, improving the delivery of a highly impactful and immersive visual experience accompanied by one of the fastest moving picture response time (MPRT) technology within the industry.

As the company’s first curved gaming monitor to feature quantum dot technology, the CFG70 monitor (24- and 27-inch models) expresses brilliant and accurate colors across a 125 percent sRGB spectrum.This added luminance produces a 3,000:1 contrast ratio and amplifies previously-hidden gaming details in both light and dark settings. The monitor also employs an environmentally-safe, cadmium-free design.

“Our Quantum Dot display gaming monitor creates an unprecedented visual experience that no gamer has ever experienced. Optimized on breaking boundaries and bringing lifelike picture quality, the CFG70 is an incredible leverage for gamers to have especially when competing in the growing popularity of e-sports,” said Lee Sang Hoon, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.


Comfortable and Immersive Viewing with the Curved Design
The CFG70’s “Super Arena” design, featuring industry-best 1,800R curvature and a 178-degree ultra-wide viewing angle, is formatted to match the natural curve of the human eye. Complementary sound-interactive LED lighting further creates a lifelike presentation and keeps users focused during the most paramount moments.

Additionally, the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP) recently named the CFG70 as a recipient of its annual Good Design Awards, which honor technologies that “improve the quality of life, industry and society.” The JDP acknowledged the efficiency and performance of the CFG70’s advanced gaming interface and convenience-driving composition.

Fast Speed and Smooth Game Play
By combining Samsung’s advanced motion blur reduction technology with its VA panel, the CFG70 is the first curved monitor to produce a 1 ms moving picture response time (MPRT). The rapid MPRT rate reduces display transitions between moving and animated objects, and in turn eliminates potential visual distractions.

The CFG70 also leverages integrated AMD FreeSync Technology over HDMI functionality to synchronize the screen’s 144Hz refresh rate with users’ AMD graphics cards. This connectivity minimizes image tearing,input latency and stutter that can disrupt gameplay and escalate visual fatigue.


Optimized Gaming Experience
Samsung has equipped the CFG70 with a range of user-friendly gaming UX that drives more convenient and easily-accessible game management. The CFG70 includes a dedicated gaming interface with an intuitive settings dashboard to better allow gamers to modify and personalize their gameplay settings. Each CFG70 monitor also offers a series of hotkeys on the front and back of the display for users to easily adjust gameplay settings. 

To further inspire gamer immersion and bring out the best in even the most complex game designs, including compatibility with the FPS, RTS, RPG and AOS genres, each CFG70 monitor undergoes rigorous pre-shipment factory calibration. This process optimizes various settings, including contrast ratios, black gamma levels for enhanced brightness and white balance levels for temperature management.As a result, gamers can enjoy a sharp and brilliant picture regardless of the game in play.

Be the first 100 customers to walk away with a free gift worth up to RM 264 when they owned the CFG70 gaming monitor during the pre-order on Lazada from 19th to 26th January. The CFG70 gaming monitor comes in two variants of 24-inch (RM1,699) and 27-inch (2,099). The Samsung first curved gaming monitor will also be available for offline purchase at selected retail outlets starting 27th January onwards.
