Samsung Unpacks Bodacious Odyssey G9 49-inch QLED 240Hz FreeSync 2 Gaming Monitor
The Odyssey G9 has a resolution of 5120x1440 (32:9 aspect ratio) and a peak brightness rating of 1,000 nits (HDR 1000 certified). The VA panel has support for both AMD FreeSync 2 and NVIDIA G-SYNC, while delivering 240Hz refresh rates for gamers. You'll also find the Odyssey G9 is rated for a lightning fast 1ms response time.
As if its wild 1000R curvature wasn’t enough of a visual punch to the face, the Odyssey G9 also has a glowing orb-like protrusion on its rear that plugs into the display stand. It supports Infinity Core Lighting with 52 colors offered across 5 operating modes.
If the Odyssey G9 is too extreme for you, there are also two lesser models in the G7 family. The Odyssey G7 family is offered in both 27-inch and 32-inch screen sizes with a QHD resolution (2560x1440). Both monitors offer HDR 600 certification and also adopt QLED display technology.
Like the Odyssey G9, the Odyssey G7 features a 1000R curvature along with a 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. In addition, they both also support FreeSync 2 and G-SYNC adaptive refresh rate technologies.
Samsung has not announced pricing for the Odyssey G9 and Odyssey G7, but did state that they will be available during the second quarter of 2020.
