Samsung's latest Gaming Monitors add useful streaming features to already advanced feature sets

This year, Samsung UK brought OC3D to Gamescom to give us a gander at all of their latest gaming wares. We have already showed you their new 990 PRO SSD, and now we will be talking about the "Samsung Gaming Hub", a new feature that is coming to the company's newly revealed Odyssey's G70B and G65B gaming monitors. 

Through the Samsung Gaming Hub, Odysey G70B and G65B monitors can directly access major game streaming services like Xbox Cloud, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia, Utomik, and Amazon Luna (a US Only service), giving gamers access to online games through their monitors without a connected PC or console. 

While these streaming features are a near add-on for these gaming monitors, Samsung's list of smart monitor features do not end there. Using Samsung DeX, Apple AirPlay 2, users of Samsung's new Odyssey gaming screens can effectively turn their smartphones into gaming PCs, Samsung also claims that these screens can wirelessly connect to Windows PCs or Macs if required. On top of that, these TVs can directly connect to Netflix or Amazon Prime to deliver some entertainment when you are not gaming.

Ok, so what about these monitor's specifications? 

While their streaming features are useful, Samsung's Odyssey G70B and G65B screens are primarily designed to be gaming monitors. The G70B series will be available with 28-inch and 32-inch screen sizes with 144Hz refresh rates, and 1ms GtG response times. The G70B series will utilise IPS screen technology and is enhanced with Nvidia G-Sync Compatibility and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support.

Samsung's G65B series monitors will be available with screen sizes of 27-iches and 32-inches. These monitors will feature refresh rates of 240Hz and screen resolutions of 2560x1440 (QHD). This screen will feature a 1000R curvature and will be FreeSync Premium Pro verified. Like the G70B, the G65B offers 1ms GtG response times. Sadly, Samsung did not mention if this screen used a IPS, VA, or TN panel type.

Samsung's Gaming Hub and other smart features are effectively placing the company's new Odyssey series monitors somewhere between traditional gaming monitors and smart TVs. For gamers, the screen's high refresh rates and resolutions will no doubt impress many, but outside of gaming these screen have features that add an extra layer of versatility into the mix, turning your gaming monitor into a multi-purpose screen. 

Samsung expects their new Odyssey G70B and G65B Gaming monitors to become available globally in Q4 2022.

Probably because they are popular in China. There are more gamers in China than humans in US.

Even though most westerners think products are made for western market, they are not. MSI's whole lineup is black and gold. That is the most desirable color combination in China.

For years car manufacturers had specific models for Chinese market because they like certain features that are not popular in the west. Now all cars are made primarily for the Chinese market and the rest of the world gets whatever China wants.

Just look at Apple and Tim Cook who are actively trying to shove themselves up the China's ass so far that only his shoelaces are hanging out.

China makes all the products and buys most of the products. So yea, for every manufacturer China's customers are often before western ones.Quote
