Samsung provides new details about forthcoming Odyssey OLED G9 gaming monitor
Samsung has revealed new details about the Odyssey OLED G9, a 49-inch curved gaming monitor that relies on a QD-OLED panel. First showcased in January during CES 2023, the Odyssey OLED G9 combines a 5,120 x 1,440-pixel resolution with a 240 Hz refresh rate. Additionally, Samsung previously confirmed that the monitor would be VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified, which corresponds to 250 nits full area brightness and 400 nits peak brightness. Moreover, the gaming monitor was said to deliver 0.1 ms response times, type unknown, and would come with Samsung's Gaming Hub software pre-installed.
Now, Samsung has outlined that the Odyssey OLED G9 has a 1800R curvature and 0.03 ms response times (GtG). Furthermore, the monitor offers Adaptive Sync support, plus AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certification for minimising image tearing with AMD graphics cards. Samsung adds that the panel should achieve a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio as well, with its 'Advanced Neo Quantum AI' processor on hand to analyse and optimise image quality.
Also, the Odyssey OLED G9 will feature DisplayPort 1.4, micro-HDMI 2.1 and HDMI 2.1 video inputs, along with two USB 3.0 Type-A downstream ports and a USB Type-B upstream port. 5 W stereo speakers are on board too, as is an adjustable stand that can be raised by up to 120 mm or tilted -2 to +15 degrees. Unfortunately, Samsung is still yet to confirm pricing or availability yet.
