Samsung Unveils 49″ Curved QLED Odyssey Gaming Monitor At CES 2020
Samsung just introduced their new line-up of curved Odyssey gaming monitors at CES 2020, which has been completely reimagined with gamers in mind, including radically new curved displays and industry-leading performance features for a whole new way to game.
The Samsung Odyssey G9 is the world’s first Dual Quad High-Definition (DQHD; 5120×1440 resolution) 240Hz rapid refresh rate, 1ms response time, 32:9 aspect ratio gaming monitor, with a deep, immersive 1000R curve and 1000 cd/m2 peak brightness. It features Quantum dot technology combined with a HDR1000 VA panel to produce lifelike colors in vivid detail. The combination of quick response time and refresh rate along with industry-leading 1000R curve eliminates distractions and lag time, creating ultra-smooth screen transitions for critical gaming moments where a split second could mean the difference between winning and losing.
Obviously, you’re going to need quite the graphics card to power it, as running 5120 x 1440 at 240FPS is not going to be easy. So you’ll to pick up NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, or wait for AMD’s new Big Navi and NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to begin launching this year.
We love the G9’s striking new design with a glossy white exterior and a futuristic infinity core lighting glowing rear core, which includes 52 colors and five lighting effect options. The design and lighting effects stand out from the competition and complement any gaming setup.
“Samsung’s new Odyssey G9 curved gaming monitor has been completely redesigned to give gamers an entirely new and immersive experience,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
Samsung’s new Odyssey G9 gaming monitor will launch in Q2 2020, with pricing to be released closer to that date. But my guess is that it will set you back $2,000 or more. This is a premium gaming panel after all, with a never-before-seen resolution at the pumping 240Hz refresh rate. If you want one, you had better start saving up now!
