Odyssey Neo G8 (G85NB) – Unrivalled in speed and resolution
The new 32-inch Odyssey Neo G8 is the world’s first and fastest monitor that combines a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) 1000R curved VA panel featuring Quantum Matrix Technology, with 240Hz super-fast refresh rate and 1ms response time (GtG). The 4K resolution is also supported by a colour gamut up to 95% of DCI-P3 colour gamut. The design of the Odyssey Neo G8 was inspired by the iconic style of the Odyssey Neo G9, offering an effortlessly cool exterior which is packed with premium gaming performance features.
Together with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, the gaming monitor’s outstanding 4K 240Hz refresh rate and ultra-low 1ms response time allow players to get real-world accuracy to maximise their potential and compete at the highest level in any gaming environment. The Odyssey Neo G8 also utilises Quantum Mini LED technology, enabling ultra-fine and precise control of the densely packed LEDs, ensuring gamers see both dark and bright scenes as they were intended. In addition, Quantum HDR2000 with a 2,000nit peak brightness and a million-to-one static contrast ratio brings out the most subtle details for unparalleled immersion.
The CoreSync lighting found on the backside of the monitor automatically detects colours on the screen and projects them in real life to create a deep sense of immersion.
The Odyssey Neo G8 is also built to provide a wide range of innovative features to enhance any gaming experience. The monitor is equipped with new display technology called Matte Display which provides both anti-glare and anti-reflection protection, minimising distractions and keeping users focused on the content in front of them. Plus, the monitor offers a Height Adjustable Stand (HAS), as well as Swivel and Tilt functionality for ergonomic efficiency and Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) compliant mounting. Users can customise their space for maximum comfort and productivity, supported by the flexibility of the Odyssey Neo G8.
The Odyssey Neo G8 was recently recognised for its innovative technology and named a winner in the CES 2022 Best of Innovation gaming category, as well as being a CES 2022 Innovation Award Honoree, also in the gaming category.
Odyssey Neo G7 (G75NB) – Immerse yourself with premium Mini-LED technology
Samsung extends its Odyssey gaming monitor line up with the new Odyssey Neo G7, a 32-inch 4K (3,840 x 2,160) monitor with 1000R curved VA panel offering, a 165Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time (GtG), delivering a premium gaming performance.
This performance is powered by many of the same features as the Odyssey Neo G8 model, including AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, Quantum Mini LED technology, as well as Quantum HDR2000 with 2,000nit peak brightness and a million-to-one static contrast ratio for superior immersion that plunges players into the virtual world of any game they play.
The deep immersion is enhanced by the CoreSync lighting found on the rear of the monitor, bringing content to life with bright and vivid colours that create more memorable experiences.
The ergonomic stand, in addition to Auto Source Switch+, ensures the monitor works for the user and removes any friction while using for maximum performance, productivity and comfort. Players can also get to their content fast, without have to flip through multiple inputs, by simply turning on the PC for the monitor to instantly recognise and switch between the inputs.
Odyssey G4 (G40B) – Futuristic design packed with essential gaming features
The Odyssey G4 provides a brilliant option for gamers looking for a monitor with all the essential gaming features, packaged within a futuristic design. Available in 25- and 27-inch sizes, the Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080) Odyssey G4 offers super-fast 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time (GtG), IPS panel with wide viewing angle and HDR10 support for a high-level gaming experience.
