Samsung, the global leader in gaming monitors, pushes the boundaries of display technology to deliver a radically different gaming experience. Unveiled this year at CES, Odyssey gaming monitors combine the deepest, most immersive curved displays with next-generation performance gaming performance. The Odyssey G9 and G7 are available for pre-order today and on sale July 13, on Samsung.com and select online retailers.
“As the global leader in the gaming monitor market, Samsung understands that gamers want display innovations that reimagine the gaming experience with high-performance features for even the most demanding game titles,” said Mark Quiroz, Vice President, Product Marketing, Samsung Electronics America Display Division. “With Odyssey, we’re going beyond the expectations of what a gaming monitor should be and bringing a fully redesigned, deeply immersive experience built for the future of gaming.”
The G9 – with an industry-leading 49-inch display – and the G7, available in 32 and 27-inch, have been completely redesigned for maximum immersion in gaming worlds. Odyssey monitors are the first-ever gaming monitors to possess a high-performance 1000R curvature that wraps around a gamer’s view. Combined with Samsung QLED technology and HDR, Odyssey delivers the deepest blacks and vivid colors to bring environments to life with unprecedented realism and ensures every pixel has picture-perfect depth.
For gamers to stay immersed in the action, display performance is critical as gaming is more competitive than ever. Odyssey’s technical innovations take gamers’ needs for speed, responsiveness into account with a powerful combination of 1 ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate, creating ultra-smooth screen transitions for crucial gaming moments where every split second counts.
To further improve performance, Odyssey monitors also support NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility and Adaptive Sync on DisplayPort 1.4, offering gamers’ exceptionally dynamic and seamless gameplay.
