New 240hz Gaming Monitors for 2019

Here are the two newest 240hz monitors announced in 2019 that are pushing the boundaries of technology. The first is special because it’s the first 240hz monitor to run an QHD resolution and the second is special because it’s curved!

Lenovo Legion Y27gq

The new 27″ monitor (Legion Y27GQ) from Lenovo features:

  • 27″ Diameter
  • Resolution of 2560 x 1440
  • A 240hz refresh rate
  • 0.5ms response time
  • G-Sync technology
  • Harman Kardon speaker (detachable)
  • 2 x USB 3.1 ports (charging)
  • Borderless QHD panel

And… that’s all we know so far.

I’m fairly excited about the higher resolution AND the new 0.5ms response panels being used. My main question still remains, will you be able to run ULMB at 240hz or will it require you to lower the refresh rate? At the time of writing, I believe that only the LG 27gk750f and the Zowie 2740 supports ultra-low-motion blur reduction at 240hz.

Samsung CRG5

Samsung just announced it’s newest monitor, the Samsung CRG5.

We haven’t heard much about it however we know that it has:

  • A curved 27″ display (World’s first 240hz curved display)
  • 240hz Refresh rate
  • Freesync technology

And… because they didn’t mention it, I’m going to assume it’s probably 1920 x 1080 resolution and possibly 1ms-4ms response time. Don’t quote me on that last part!

What are you looking forward to this year? Have we missed any new announcements?
