Samsung reveals several new gaming displays at Gamescom.

First up we have the introduction of the CRG5. This 27-inch screen with 1440p resolution was already teased at E3 2019 - it's the first 240Hz panel with a 1500R curvature. The panel is NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and has a contrast ratio of 3000:1.

Next we have the 32-inch Space Gaming Monitor (SR75Q), a 144Hz panel with AMD FreeSync support. This screen has a space-saving design, you can place it against your wall and it will take up minimum space. Samsung even integrated the HDMI and power cable into one cable to reduce clutter. The Space Gaming Monitor has a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution.

The final new panel is the CRG9, this one was already on display at CES at the start of the year. It's quite a beast: the CRG9 has a 5120 x 1440 pixel resolution. It's the equivalent of placing two 27-inch 16:9 screens next to each other.

The panel has a 120Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync 2 HDR support, HDR 1000, 95% DCI-P3 color gamut, and 1000 nits brightness.

The Samsung CRG5 and CRG9 are shipping today in Europe for 399EUR and 1299EUR, respectively. The Space Gaming Monitor will follow in December for 499EUR.
