Samsung presents bright 240 Hz screen with Mini LED

In order not to drown in the approaching tidal wave of technology news that comes with the CES 2022 trade fair, some companies sneak out a pick in advance. The official box contains, for example, Intel’s taste test of PCI Express 5.0 storage, which shows that the theoretical speed limit of the “Alder Lake” platform is not out of reach – once storage devices appear. Unofficial information about processors and graphics cards on the AMD side are other early examples.

Now Samsung is joining the early presenters, through one press release which briefly touches on the upcoming gaming screen Odyssey Neo G8. The play borrows the same futuristic look as the lavish 49-inch Odyssey Neo G9 from last year, which means a curved panel with a white plastic back and an illuminated circle in the center. However, the Neo G8 is a smaller model of 32 inches, but despite its smaller format, the resolution turns to 3,840 × 2,160 pixels.

The 4K UHD panel thus scraps the ultra-wide aspect ratio from the Odyssey Neo G9 in favor of 16: 9, but the narrow curvature radius of 1,000 millimeters (1000R) is also used by the newcomer. Also used is backlighting of the Quantum Mini LED type, which according to Samsung can take the maximum brightness to 2,000 cd / m² and meet what the company calls “Quantum HDR 2000”. A contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1 is promised as a icing on the cake.

In addition to the high resolution, the Odyssey Neo G8 comes with a refresh rate of 240 Hz and a response time of 1 millisecond (gray-to-gray), which makes the model a heavy-duty but on paper competent gaming screen. Furthermore, there is support for adaptive image synchronization according to AMD Freesync Premium Pro and Nvidia’s G-Sync, which can come in handy with the 4K UHD resolution in mind.

At the time of writing, it is unclear which price tag the lavish product will be given, but details are missing about when it will be launched and to what extent. Such information is expected to emerge later this week, when CES 2022 really kicks off.
