At the ongoing Gamescom, Samsung launched new gaming monitors including the world’s first 240Hz RapidCurve gaming monitor CRG5 with NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility in Europe. Along with CRG5, Samsung also showcased the Space Gaming Monitor (SR75Q) and the Super Ultra-wide CRG9 49-inch.
The CRG5 which features a 240Hz refresh rate has a 1500R curved screen that offers wider view. It packs a 3000:1 contrast ratio for deeper blacks and brighter whites. Samsung’s CRG5 has a bezel-less design and offers curved vertical alignment (VA) panel display that can be tailored to the user’s range of view for increased concentration during critical gameplay moments.
One of the highlights of the launch was the Space Gaming Monitor. This 32-inch Space Gaming Monitor (SR75Q) has a 144Hz refresh rate with AMD Radeon FreeSync. It has a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. As the name suggests, the monitor is made to save space and can be pushed flat against the wall. With the space saving feature, this monitor also provides viewing and position flexibility. It has concealable power and HDMI Y-cables for tangle free gaming.
The next one in the line is the CRG9 49-inch gaming monitor that boasts Dual QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This monitor had also won the CES 2019 Best of Innovation Award in the Computer Peripherals category. This monitor features an HDR 1000 and dual Quad High Definition (QHD) resolution (5,120 x 1,440 pixels), that is equivalent to placing two 27-inch 16:9 monitors side by side without bezels impeding the view. The CRG9 also delivers one billion colors with 95% DCI-P3 color space to present realistic visuals, while reaching a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
The Samsung CRG5 and the CRG9 49-inch are now available globally, while the Space Gaming Monitor (SR75Q) will be available globally from Q4 2019.
