Unable to keep a lid on their excitement, Samsung spilled the beans just days ahead of CES (which starts this week) about their new CH711 monitor, a stunning display that any devoted PC gamer—or general computer user—would be proud to place on their desktop.

It's gorgeous and curvy in all the right ways. From a purely superficial perspective, it keeps your cables and cords hidden, making for a neat and tidy work area. But more importantly, that pronounced curve is designed to reduce eye strain during those long sessions of focusing all over the screen (as when binge-gaming for hours on end).

As opposed to the OLED technology utilized most prominently by LG, this screen features Quantum Dots. Other than sounding all sophisticated and science-y, that's designed to bring out rich color and deep contrast in a way that's lag-free. Plus, it supports quite a wide variety of viewing angles.

Though we haven't seen pricing, we do know that it'll be on display at the big electronics show in Vegas, available in 27- and 31.5-inch varieties, and ready to be purchased early this year. Along with TVs of all sizes, we look forward to feasting our peepers on it soon.

If you gotta stare at a screen (or two) all day, this one seems like a super option
