The Samsung CRG5 curved gaming monitor is available now for S$548 from Challenger, Courts, Best Denki, Harvey Norman and Gain City, as well as selected Sim Lim Square retailers.

Samsung has just announced its new 27-inch CRG5 curved gaming monitor with a blazing 240Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility.

The monitor features a 1500R curvature for immersive viewing at full HD resolution. It has a 3000:1 contrast ratio, a peak brightness of 300 nits, a 4ms grey-to-grey response time, wide viewing angles, and a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The display also boasts of thin top and side bezels.

Unlike the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q gaming monitor that also sports a 240Hz refresh rate, the Samsung CRG5 is G-Sync compatible via software drivers; it doesn't have the proprietary hardware module required for NVIDIA G-Sync.

On the bright side, this will make the latter more budget-friendly due to reduced production cost.

In terms of connectivity ports, the monitor has one DisplayPort 1.2, and a pair of HDMI 2.0 ones.
