Samsung Introduces Its First 240hz Gaming Display

Available for $399 next month.

What just occurred? Most gamers place refresh rates above high resolutions on their list of monitor priorities, which explains why 240Hz displays are becoming more prevalent. Samsung joined the party by unveiling its first product in this category, the CRG5, yesterday.

The CRG5, which was unveiled at the E3 PC Gaming Show, features a curved (1500R), 27-inch VA panel that is G-Sync compatible. Similar to other 240Hz monitors, such as the Asus ROG PG258Q, it has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels—- This year at CES, Lenovo debuted the first 1440p gaming monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate.

In addition, the CRG5 has a contrast ratio of 3000:1, wide viewing angles (178 degrees horizontal and 178 degrees vertical), and a maximum brightness of 300 nits. In addition, it has a grey-to-gray response time of 4 milliseconds and extremely thin side and top bezels.
As with the majority of gaming monitors, the CRG5 features several modes that are optimized for specific game genres, including FPS, RTS, and RPG.

Despite lacking a G-Sync chip, the monitor supports Nvidia’s adaptive sync technology. This aids in price reduction, as most G-Sync monitors are priced at the higher end of the spectrum.

It includes a DisplayPort 1.2 port, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and a headphone jack.

The CRG5 will be available in July for $399 at and “select national retailers.” This is less expensive than the $479-priced 24.4-inch ROG PG258Q, though that model does feature full G-Sync.
