Samsung unveils Odyssey Neo G8 with 4K resolution and 240 Hz refresh rate

In addition to Odyssey, the company’s CES pre-launch included the Smart Monitor M8 and High Resolution Monitor S8.

Samsung has decided to take a stealth start at CES 2022 by already unveiling three screens that will be on display at the fair. TechBBS readers are likely to be most interested in the gaming Odyssey Neo G8, but the Smart Monitor M8 and High Resolution Monitor S8 will also be featured.

According to Samsung, the 32 ″-panel Odyssey Neo G8 is the world’s first 4K-resolution 1000R curved display capable of 240 Hz refresh rate and 1 millisecond response time. The backlight of the display is implemented with Quandum Mini LEDs and the display is promised a slightly lesser-known Quantum HDR 2000 certificate with a maximum brightness of 2000 staples. The static contrast ratio is promised to be as high as 1,000,000: 1.

Externally, the Odyssey Neo G8 resembles its big brother Neo G9, although the screen aspect ratio is more traditional 16: 9 rather than 32: 9. The front of the screen is traditional black, but the back is white. The company’s Odyssey logo is quite imperceptibly on the other side of the back cover. The LED lighting in the center of the back cover has been updated with CoreSync technology, which synchronizes the color of the light to fit the contents of the screen.

Samsung did not disclose the monitor’s connections in its release, but in practice, a resolution of 3840 × 2160 at a refresh rate of 240 Hz is currently only available via the HDMI 2.1 connector using DSC compression. DisplayPort 2.0 at UHBR 20 speeds would allow the same resolution and refresh rate without compression, but it doesn’t yet have graphics cards that support it, making it a relatively unlikely option.

The 32-inch Smart Monitor M8 provides the user with 4K resolution, 99% of the sRGB color space with 400-nin resolution. The monitor is equipped with SmartTV features and a SmartThings hub that does not necessarily need a computer to operate. The display has a built-in e.g. support for multiple video calling applications. In addition, the monitor has a 65-watt USB-C device for charging via the monitor.

The High Resolution Monitor S8 will be available in both 27-inch and 32-inch and, like other new Samsung monitors, will support 4K resolution. Unlike the Smart Monitor’s color reproduction limited to sRGB, the display reaches 98% of the wider DCI-P3 color space and is DisplayHDR 400 (27 ″) or 600 (32 ″) certified. In addition, the monitor is equipped with a 90-watt USB-C connector and a power connector. The High Resolution Monitor S8 is also the world’s first anti-reflection monitor, certified by UL.
