Samsung creates 240Hz G-Sync C27RG5 Gaming Monitor

At the PC Gaming Show 2019, Samsung has revealed their upcoming C27RG5 gaming monitor, what Samsung believes is the world's first 240Hz curved gaming monitor. 

The C27RG5 utilises a 27-inch 1080p screen which supports a 240Hz maximum refresh and support for Nvidia's G-Sync technology. For this display, Samsung is using a VA-type panel which lacks support for HDR technology and sports a typical brightness level of 300 nits. 

In the US this monitor will cost around $399.99, with Samsung stating that this monitor is G-Sync Compatible, which means that this is an Adaptive-Sync compatible monitor. Strangely, Samsung's press release doesn't list adaptive-sync or FreeSync compatibility, only that the monitor is G-Sync Compatible and is "validated by NVIDIA to meet the performance and image quality requirements for G-Sync compatibility".  

Out of the box, Samsung's C27RG5 will support HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 display inputs and support VESA compatible monitor arms and stands.

I have a 24" 1080P 240Hz Asus monitor and it's amazing for twitch type games but anything over 24" needs to be 1440P, 27" and 1080P are not something that should go together.Quote

TBH I use vsr because even on a 24 1080p does my head in.

It's ok for Uber fast games like you say, but slower paced titles show no benefits and look like 1080p butthole.

Driving to 1440p helps and gives my Vega a better workout.Quote

Outside of fps games or competitive games 1440p is the way to go without a doubt.Quote
