Samsung has just launched three new gaming monitors, one of which is a 4K 240Hz gaming beast
Today, Samsung has launched three new gaming displays into the global monitor market, all of which are part of the company's new Odyssey Neo series of gaming displays.
Starting at the high-end, we have the Odyssey Neo G8 (G85NB), the world's first 4K 240Hz gaming monitor. the screen uses a 32-inch 100R curved VA panel that features Quantum Matrix technology, FreeSync Premium Pro support, and a Quantum Mini LED backlight. Samsung advertises this screen as a Quantum HDR 2000 monitor, due to the screen's peak brightness levels of 2,000 nits.
Below the Odyssey G8 is the G7 (G75NB), another 4K 32-inch gaming monitor that features a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz and a Quantum Mini LED backlight. This screen is also advertised as a Quantum HDR 2000 display, and features the same CoreSync lighting technology as the Odyssey Neo G8. The G7 will be a more affordable version of the G8 that offers users a lower maximum refresh rate while maintaining many of the same hardware specifications.
To cater to more mainstream gamers, Samsung's Odyssey G4 (G40B) gaming display offers gamers a resolution of 1080p and refresh rates of up to 240Hz. This screen is AMD FreeSync Premium certified and features Nvidia G-SYNC Compatibility, but lacks the same Mini LED backlight technology as the G7 and G8. The Odyssey Neo G4 features an IPS display panel that is HDR10 compatible. That said, Samsung has not revealed this screen's peak brightness, so don't expect premium HDR quality levels from this screen.
Below is what Samsung had to say about their new trio of Odyssey Neo gaming monitors.

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 240 Hz super-fast refresh rate and 1 ms response time (GtG). The 4K resolution is also supported by a color gamut up to 95% of DCI-P3 color gamut. The design of the 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 240 Hz refresh rate and ultra-low 1 ms response time allow players to get real-world accuracy to maximize their potential and compete at the highest level in any gaming environment. The Neo G8 also utilizes 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 HDR 2000 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 colors on the screen and projects them in real life to create a deeper 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, minimizing 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 customize their space for maximum comfort and productivity, supported by the flexibility of the Neo G8.
