Samsung is no stranger to outlandish designs, so curved quantum dot monitors should not be surprising. But gamers rejoice as the technology is being aimed now specifically for the gaming segment.

The company will be utilizing the same quantum dot technology that it has used for its TVs. Quantum dot technology doesn’t suffer from lag issues that appear on OLED monitors, so it makes sense to set it in the gaming market where a split second could mean a great difference between winning and losing, reports Engadget.


The displays will come in 27- and 31.5-inch versions, with a 1,800R curvature and 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. Their viewing angles are at 178-degrees with 125 percent of sRGB coverage. The monitors can even be flipped into a vertical position.

Pricing is still unavailable but will likely be revealed at the consumer technology trade show CES 2017 in Las Vegas, along with Samsung’s other new products. Alfred Bayle
