Samsungs 400 CRG5 brings 240Hz GSync compatibility to 27inch curved monitor

first_imgI have never regretted forgetting to photograph a monitor more. Samsung Samsung’s CRG5 isn’t the first 240Hz 1080p monitor, the first G-Sync-compatible model or the first 27-inch curved, but it might be the first with all of those, with a VA panel instead of TN to boot. The $400 monitor debuted at this year’s E3 gaming show and is slated to ship in July. (Directly converted, its price is about £315 and AU$575.)As a reminder, G-Sync Compatible means that a display has Nvidia-approved adaptive-refresh quality — think of it as a top-tier of AMD FreeSync 2 monitors — but since it doesn’t require extra G-Sync hardware in the monitor, it can be much cheaper. Samsung has long been a major FreeSync partner for AMD.The high 240Hz refresh rate delivers smoother gameplay — it really did when I tried it — plus a broader latitude for synchronizing with your frame rates and thus avoid artifacts like tearing. That too, looked good.
