LOS ANGELES--()--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced its new 27-inch CRG5(C27RG5) gaming monitor, the latest in Samsung’s line of curved gaming monitors. The CRG5 delivers innovative new gaming features including a lightning-fast 240Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility — providing a powerful combination of unparalleled picture quality and speed for intense gameplay.

Samsung’s delivering next-level gaming experiences with innovative curved displays using the latest graphics technology to immerse gamers like never before,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "Combining a 240Hz refresh rate with NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility in Samsung’s new CRG5 curved gaming monitor gives gamers advanced performance for the most graphic-intense games.”

The 27-inch CRG5 delivers a 1500R display curvature combined with a lightning-fast refresh rate through 240Hz RapidCurve™ technology, eliminating screen lag time while displaying ultra-smooth scenes for a truly immersive experience. The monitor has been validated by NVIDIA to meet the performance and image quality requirements for G-SYNC compatibility and delivers smooth, tear-free, low-latency gameplay during any scene, all in full HD resolution (1920x1080).

The monitor has deeper blacks and brighter whites with a 3000:1 contrast ratio, providing superfine detail even in the brightest and darkest parts of a game. CRG5 has a curved vertical alignment (VA) panel display, providing an immersive gaming experience with wide viewing angle.

CRG5’s minimal bezel design offers near edge-to-edge screen on three sides and a sturdy, ergonomic stand to help gamers stay comfortably immersed in gameplay. Gamers can also select pre-set display options for any genre of game with an on-screen digital menu, and for more advanced customization users can create up to three separate display profiles to easily switch between.

The new curved gaming monitor joins Samsung’s full line of innovative curved gaming displays, including the company’s new groundbreaking 49-inch, CRG9 that immerses gamers in detail and color with a high-resolution super ultra-wide gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio, dramatic 1800R curved screen and HDR1000. The Dual QHD display (5120x1440) leverages Samsung’s revolutionary Quantum dot technology for an exceptionally wide range of accurate color reproduction, so every game feels true to life.

The CRG5 will be unveiled at the PC Gaming Show from PC Gamer, broadcast live on Twitch, June 10 at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. The CRG5 will be available in July for $399.99 at and select retailers nationwide. For additional information on Samsung’s curved gaming monitors, please visit and tune into the Twitch broadcast.
