Last updated: June 11th, 2019 at 10:18 UTC+02:00

Samsung has announced a new gaming monitor at E3 2019, the annual gaming expo held at Los Angeles. The new 27-inch CRG5 monitor is the company’s first to ship with compatibility for Nvidia G-Sync. The CRG5 joins Samsung’s full line of innovative curved gaming displays, which also includes the behemoth 49-inch super-wide CRG9.

Samsung’s new CRG5 gaming monitor features a curved, 27-inch VA (vertical alignment) panel with a Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080). It has a 1500R display curvature, providing an immersive gaming experience with a 178-degree viewing angle. The monitor comes with a “lightning-fast” 240Hz refresh rate and a reasonably quick 4ms gray-to-gray pixel response time. Samsung also promises a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and a peak brightness of 300 nits.

For connections, the CRG5 has a DisplayPort 1.2, two HDMI 2.0 ports and a dedicated 3.5mm audio jack. Compatibility for Nvidia G-Sync means the monitor can deliver a smooth, tear-free, low-latency gameplay if you use an Nvidia GPU that support G-Sync, such as the GTX 10-series or RTX 20-series graphics cards. Additional features include display presets specially calibrated for different games genres. Users can further create three custom display profiles.

The CRG5, which features a minimal bezel design on three sides and a sturdy, ergonomic stand, will go on sale globally in Q3 2019. It will be available in dark blue gray color with a price tag of $399.99.
