240Hz VA is here! ...It's a Samsung

Post by Chief Blur Buster » 11 Jun 2019, 15:42

Samsung just announced the C27RG50 gaming monitor (some media calls it the CRG5, but that's a series that includes a 144Hz monitor)

It's a 240 Hz curved VA monitor! -- utilizing VESA Adaptive-Sync that supports both FreeSync and G-SYNC (NVIDIA Certified).

E3: Samsung's First 240 Hz Gaming Monitor: Curved 240 Hz VA Panel

I know many of us like TN, but others hate it quite a bit. So that's great to finally see a 240Hz VA option -- something that is good looking for videos, movies, pictures, and will bring low-blur gaming.


Interesting Variable Refresh Rate Branding Situation

Unusually, this monitor is being marketed more with the NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible branding, rather than the AMD FreeSync branding -- despite supporting both. It appears to be a situation of getting certified by NVIDIA before being certified by AMD.

From what I know, the G-SYNC Compatible certification program is available to all eligible VESA Adaptive-Sync monitors capable of meeting the G-SYNC Compatible standard, even if manufacturers don't certify with AMD to gain the ability to use the "FreeSync" label.

I would never do 1080p but the development is interesting none the less.
