CES 2017: Samsung introduces CH711 Quantum Dot Curved Gaming Monitor

With the media buzz around CES 2017 this week, you can expect to hear tons of new information on the latest HDTVs and monitors coming out this year. The good news is, as gaming grows in popularity, so does corporate interest. Samsung issued a press release unveiling their new CH711 Quantum Dot curved monitor, which will debut at CES 2017.

 

 

The CH711 comes in two sizes: 27-inches and 31.5-inches respectively. For those looking at smaller sizes around 24-inches, you’re out of luck. That’s not a bad thing however, as larger monitors tend to cram in more pixels. Speaking of pixels, the monitor comes equipped with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, which is essentially the current standard for high-end gaming monitors on the market today. The monitor features an 1800R curvature and ultrawide 178 degree viewing angle; Samsung claims that content will clearly visible from anywhere in the room. To top it all off, the CH711 also features nearly 125 percent sRGB color coverage.

 

 

It’s interesting to note that Samsung’s CH711 is designed primarily with gaming in mind. There aren’t many details regarding its gaming prowess just yet, but hopefully that translates to low input lag and fast response times for serious gaming. The last thing we’d need is a laggy, blurry gaming set after all. Samsung’s recent Quantum Dot monitor, the CFG70, offered a “Gaming UX” user interface that essentially mimics gaming presets found in other leading gaming monitors. This UX contains presets for FPS, RTS, RPG, and AOS game genres, and also allows advanced calibrations to fine-tune picture quality. We can probably expect to see this feature set in the CH711 as well.

 

 

There are no details on its refresh rate either, which is an important detail for serious gaming. Higher refresh rates allow for much smoother visual gameplay, along with much lower input lag. Considering the CFG70 came equipped with a 144hz refresh rate, it’s likely the CH711 will follow suit. We will try to get our hands on the CH711 this week, live from the CES 2017 show floor.

  • Were you able to get any hands-on time with the CH711 at CES?
    Any word on its refresh rate or input lag?

    I like the curve and the big format.

    Currently I’m oggling samsung’s KU7500 4k tv in 43″. But frankly, graphics cards just aren’t up to handling 4k with respectable frame rates yet. So i’m checking out the 1440p monitors, to see if there’s anything really compelling there. I like large screen sizes, and 30-32″ seems just about ideal pixel density to me for 1440p, much like 4k tv’s in the 40-50 inch range.

    If the CH711 actually has a high refresh and good input lag, I’d get it… even though it’s a gaudy distracting white color. I mean, I could always spraypaint the stand and bottom bezel matte black, right?

    • Yes, I managed to check out the CH711 at CES but there wasn’t much information regarding it. The CES demo unit confirmed that it has 4ms response time, QHD resolution, Quantum Dot display with 125% sRGB coverage, and FreeSync with a 1800R curvature. It’s still hard to recommend 4K for gaming due to framerate dips, however the 1080Ti is a step in the right direction for that. I do wish there were more 32″ monitors in the market, as the 32″ TV segment is lacking in quality.

  • hi just got this monitor and the look and picture quality is great. I have a 1070 card and using Display port Cable, which is included in the box 🙂 I have set some custom refresh rates @1440p and it runs without problems up to 110Hz. Have left it at 100Hz and am very pleased. input lag was 16ms @60Hz but has dropped to 10ms @100Hz. I would recommed it with this performance for the casual user like me. TJJ
