Cooler Master goes curved and Quantum Dot with 27in and 34in GM series monitors

A bit big for an FHD resolution, don't you think.

Cooler Master has announced two new monitors using curved VA panels and featuring high refresh rates plus Quantum Dot colour enhancement technology.

Starting with the GM27-CFX, which is a 27in 16:9 screen with an FHD 1920×1080 resolution and 1500R curve. Cooler Master employs an 8-bit VA panel with Quantum Dot film to provide better image quality, achieving a 3000:1 contrast ratio, 400 nits of typical brightness, and 98 per cent DCI-P3 gamut coverage. The refresh rate is set at a fast 240Hz alongside a 0.5ms (MPRT) response time, according to the brand.

For I/O we get one DisplayPort 1.2, two HDMI 2.0 and two 2W speakers. This monitor can adjust in height (0 to 130mm), tilt (-15° to +15°), and swivel (-5° to +20°).

Next, there is the GM34-CWQ ARGB, which is a 34in 21:9 screen with a UWQHD 3440×1440 resolution and 1500R curve. This one also gets an 8-bit VA panel with Quantum Dot technology, providing a bit more contrast at 4000:1, plus the same 400 nits of brightness and 98 per cent DCI-P3 coverage.

The refresh rate is set at a lower 144Hz, which is acceptable at this resolution, alongside a 0.5ms (MPRT) response time.

I/O is more generous, with one DisplayPort, two HDMI 2.0, two 5W speakers, USB Type-C (65W), USB Type-B and two USB Type-A. Adjustments on this one are height (0 to 80mm), tilt (-15° to +15°), and swivel (-5° to +15°).

Both monitors have FreeSync plus G-Sync support, low blue light, and 100x100mm VESA mount.

The GM27-CFX and GM34-CWQ ARGB are priced at $369 and $649 MSRP, respectively, and covered by a three-year warranty.
