Samsung Electronics America has introduced its latest additions to the Odyssey gaming monitor series at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. The new models, namely the Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SD), Odyssey OLED G8 (G80SD), and Odyssey OLED G6 (G60SD), feature OLED Glare-Free technology and various enhancements catering to gamers’ performance and visual needs.
The Odyssey OLED G9 is a 49-inch curved ultra-wide gaming monitor with a DQHD resolution of 5,120×1,440, a 32:9 aspect ratio, and upgraded features. The Odyssey OLED G8 is the first flat 32-inch Samsung OLED gaming monitor, boasting a 4K UHD resolution of 3,840×2,160 and a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Both monitors offer a 240Hz refresh rate and a rapid 0.03ms GTG response time. The Odyssey OLED G6, a 27-inch QHD monitor, supports a 16:9 aspect ratio, a 360Hz refresh rate, and the same 0.03ms GTG response time.
David Phelps, Head of the Display Division at Samsung Electronics America, emphasized that these new monitors meet the demands of over 212 million gamers across the country. The inclusion of OLED Glare-Free technology reduces reflections, providing gamers with flexibility in choosing their setup locations.
The monitors incorporate VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 for detailed and vivid colors, irrespective of the displayed content, and support AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for low-latency HDR gaming.
They also offer comprehensive physical connectivity with two HDMI 2.1 ports, a USB hub, and a DisplayPort 1.4 input. VESA mount compatibility and a height-adjustable stand with tilt, swivel, and pivot control points further enhance user comfort.
The Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8 now feature Multi Control, facilitating seamless device connectivity for an improved multi-device experience. This feature enables users to transfer images and text between their Samsung monitor and other Samsung devices, streamlining work processes. Additionally, these monitors include the Samsung SmartThings Hub for connecting to IoT devices compatible with Matter and the Home Connectivity Alliance.
As entertainment hubs, the Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8, equipped with the Samsung Smart TV platform and Samsung Gaming Hub, provide access to streaming and cloud gaming services. Samsung has introduced flat OLED options to the Odyssey lineup, with the Odyssey OLED G8 and Odyssey OLED G6 featuring a 16:9 aspect ratio and leveraging a slim metal design with Core Lighting+ technology.
The Core Lighting+ feature emits ambient light from the back of the monitor, creating an immersive gaming environment. The new slim metal stand, adopting a tool-free assembly structure, complements the slim 3.9mm metal bezel, enhancing the overall design.
With these additions, Samsung strengthens its OLED lineup, consolidating its leadership in the gaming monitor market. The new Odyssey OLED models, alongside advancements in the Odyssey Neo series, contribute to defining the future of gaming with innovative features and performance.
