Samsung launches the world's fastest 4K Gaming Monitor
Samsung has today revealed what appears to be the highest-end gaming monitor that has ever been revealed, offering gamers support for 240Hz refresh rates at 4K on a Quantum Mini LED screen. As such, this screen offers users high resolution gameplay, ultra high refresh rate support, and high quality hDR support with 2,000 nits of peak brightness with local dimming.
Meet the Samsung Odyssey NEO G8, a 32-inch monitor that supports DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, Display Stream Compression (DSC), a 1000R curvature, and CoreSync Lighting. Currently, Samsung plans to release this display in the first half of 2022.
Sadly, Samsung has not revealed the pricing of their Odyssey NEO G8, though the screen is expected to be on the expensive side. Below is what Samsung had to say about the monitor in a recent press release.
Odyssey Neo G8
As the world's first monitor to feature a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) 1000R curved screen with 240 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time (GtG), Odyssey Neo G8 32" (Model Name: G85NB) is set to open a new chapter in gaming monitor innovation, offering razor-sharp performance for even the most dedicated PC gamers. Its performance matches its stunning picture quality featuring Quantum Mini LEDs, Quantum HDR 2000 with a 2,000nit peak brightness and a million-to-one static contrast ratio, bringing out the most subtle details for increased world building and immersion.
The new Odyssey Neo G8 is built with a similar design language as the Odyssey Neo G9, offering a sleek white exterior that stands out even when it's turned off. Beautiful colors leap off the screen into a user's real environment with CoreSync lighting. The core 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.
4K at 240Hz
While 4K 240Hz refresh rates seem excessive for modern titles, the latest graphics cards are capable of delivering high refresh rate gameplay at 4K, with many games exceeding the 4K 120Hz/144Hz resolutions/refresh rates offered by many high-end 4K screens. Add on upscaling features like DLSS and FSR to many titles, and high refresh rate 4K gaming becomes something that is very achievable with many modern games.
With many modern console games targeting 4K at 120Hz, screens like the Odyssey NEO G8 will allow PC gamers to target even higher levels of image quality and clarity.
