Singapore, 3 October 2019 – Samsung Electronics Singapore today announced the launch of its new CRG5 gaming monitor, the latest of Samsung’s Curved Gaming Monitors. To provide the ultimate experience that gamers have come to expect, the CRG5 delivers a powerful combination of 240Hz refresh rate with a curved display and is NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible.
“Over the years, Samsung has been revolutionising gaming monitors for users with the latest technology innovations available,” said Jacus Long, General Manager, Enterprise Business at Samsung Electronics Singapore. “With the new CRG5 gaming monitor that offers users 240Hz refresh rate, we hope that this would elevate their gaming experience to a whole new level.”
The 240Hz refresh rate offers a swift and smooth response for screen transitions even during an intense gameplay. With a combination of lightning-fast refresh rate through 240Hz RapidCurve™ technology and 1500R curvature, the 27-inch CRG5 practically eliminates lag time while displaying ultra-smooth scenes on a wider view for gamers.
To eliminate tears, stuttering and any delay in the action, G-Sync Compatible from NVIDIA aligns the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Vertical Alignment (VA) panel, offering players exceptionally dynamic and seamless gameplay during any scene in full HD resolution.
The impressive 3000:1 contrast ratio allows Samsung’s latest curved gaming monitor to deliver 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 VA panel tailored to the user’s range of view, enhancing concentration during critical gameplay moments.
With a minimal bezel design that offers near edge-to-edge screen and complemented with a sturdy, ergonomic stand, the CRG5 helps gamers stay comfortably immersed in gameplay. Gamers can also select pre-set display options with an On-Screen Display (OSD) menu, further enhancing their comfort and convenience.
Samsung’s CRG5 offers a range of optimal gaming modes for users:
- Game Mode: An optional setting that automatically and optimally adjusts black gamma levels, contrast, sharpness and colour for all types of games.
- Low Input Lag Mode: Minimises delays between a user’s input devices and display.
- Virtual Aim: Increases and enhances accuracy when playing a first-person shooter.
- Eye Saver Mode: Minimises blue light emitted by the display to keep eyes comfortable during extended periods of gaming.
With these features available for users, their gaming experience will be enhanced like never before.
