CRG5: World`s first 240Hz refresh rate with curved display
The 27-inch CRG5 combines a lightning-fast refresh rate through 240Hz RapidCurve™ technology and 1500R curvature, eliminating lag time while displaying ultra-smooth scenes for a truly immersive experience. The 240Hz refresh rate allows a swift, effortless response to screen transitions and quickly changing situations, while the 1500R curved screen offers a wider view with just one glance.
To eliminate tears, stuttering and any delay in the action, G-sync compatibility from NVIDIA synchronizes the graphics processing unit (GPU) and panel, offering players exceptionally dynamic and seamless gameplay during any scene in full HD resolution.
An impressive 3000:1 contrast ratio means Samsung's latest curved gaming monitor delivers deeper blacks and brighter whites, providing superfine detail in the brightest and darkest parts of an image for greater user enjoyment. Samsung’s CRG5 has a curved vertical alignment (VA) panel display tailored to the user’s range of view for increased concentration during critical gameplay moments.

Samsung’s CRG5 also offers a host of optimal gaming modes that make the player experience more comfortable than ever before. Game Mode is an optional setting that automatically, and optimally, adjusts black gamma levels, contrast, sharpness and color for all types of games. Low input Lag Mode can also minimize delays between a user’s input devices and display, while Virtual Aim both increases and enhances accuracy when playing a first-person shooter. Finally, Eye Saver Mode minimizes the blue light omitted by the display to keep eyes comfortable when gaming for extended periods of time.
