Samsung C34F791 gaming monitor

Samsung has announced the Samsung C34F791 monitor, also known as CF791, C34F791W and C34F791WD. Years ago, they released the Samsung S34E790C, which was also a 34-inch UltraWide VA monitor. The major difference between these monitors is that this Samsung VA monitor features a 100Hz refresh rate, whereas the Samsung S34E790C can only support up to 60Hz at a resolution of 3440 x 1440. This will make this monitor great for gaming as well, as some gamers prefer the VA panel over the IPS panels that most other UltraWide monitors feature.

The Samsung C34F791 gaming monitor also features a native resolution of 3440 x 1440. Furthermore, the curvature on this model is greater as well with a curvature value of 1500R, which is pretty steep. The top bezel and side bezel are also all very slim and combined with the circular monitor stand and the silver colors, you end up with a very modern and sleek PC display. This will certainly look well on your desk and does not look like a gaming monitor at all. Looking at other specs, you will see that the Samsung C34F791 features AMD FreeSync as well. The variable refresh rate range is not confirmed, but we believe it to be 48Hz-100Hz.

Other specs include a 3000:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and the screen is coated with a light anti-matte screen coating. This will help preserve the colors, and since this Samsung monitor also features a Quantum Dot backlight, you end up with a very vibrant picture. This essentially means that Quantum Dots will appear instead of the standard backlight phosphors that we are used to, resulting in an enhanced 125% sRGB color gamut. The display is of course also flicker-free and a 4ms response time is specified, which is pretty normal for VA panels produced today.

Features include “Game Mode”, which will enhance visibility in games and an “Eye Saver Mode”, which will protect your eyes against harmful blue rays and thus make it much easier to sleep if you use your monitor just before going to bed. Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) are also supported by the Samsung C34F791 monitor.

Connection options include a DisplayPort 1.2a port, which is required for FreeSync, two HDMI ports and two USB 3.0 ports. Furthermore, a 3.5mm headphone jack is found on the backside of the monitor. The OSD can be controlled via a joystick found on the rear right side of the monitor and there’s also dual stereo speakers as well.

The PC screen will be released in early 2017 and will cost you roughly €1200. Stay tuned as we will update this article as we get hold of more information from Samsung.

    I am still holding my breath for one of the major panel makers to produce a 21:9 3440×1440 panel with strobing (ULMB, Lightboost, etc). Not a VA panel though due to the inherent ghosting issues with certain range pixel transitions that become evident.

    After experiencing crystal clear high res images panning at high speeds with zero perceived motion blur, I can never go back to a non strobed monitor. The thing is I don’t thing there are enough people out there that even comprehend how much of a difference strobing makes, nor have ever even witnessed the difference between even a high refresh non strobed vs a strobed panel. It only takes one time to see the difference on Blurbusters UFO test or better yet their scrolling image tests or just playing a fast paced FPS.

    Everyone is barking for 4k when the panel tech is not mature enough IMO, people settling for mediocre refresh rates and lack of strobing for my personal taste.

    This is so true. ULMB or strobing improves the picture so dramatically its insaine its not the main focus in monitor development. I will never buy a monitor without it especially after owning a ULMB monitor for the last 2 years. I did buy a VA monitor and even with ULMB there was ghosting/blur. I took that back as it was not even usable there was so much blur. The people in the shop “could not notice it”…wtf… TN is the best followed by IPS. Why are manufacturers producung a VA pannel with enough blur to make you dizzy? I dont know.

    i think its supposed to be quantom DOT

    But this new VA panel, will it be better for games? Is it as fast as the 100hz ips panels ? I got a pg348q on the way, wondering if i should put it on hold to see how this new va panel fares. Hmm..

    No. Like I said, VA panels wash out when panning in games. Makes the whole image look like an oil painting. I started getting nausea after 20 mins of using a VA panel. And the blacks are washed out. Very very black… and that creates a lot of contrasting effects but it’s washed out. So dark area’s just blend together and it looks like a big black blob. Same black scene side by side where a VA has a black blob a TN panel has so much detail and things you cannot even see on a VA panel. For me it’s mind blowing and I will not be ripped off with false no blur/ghosting claims.
