What you need to know
- Samsung announced new entries in its gaming monitor lineup ahead of CES 2020.
- The latest Odyssey monitors include the G7 and G9, which are packed with gaming features and deep curves.
- The Odyssey G7 and G9 are expected to launch globally in Q2 2020.
Ahead of CES 2020, Samsung took the wraps off of its latest line of gaming monitors. Dubbed the Samsung Odyssey G9 and Odyssey G7, the monitors are packed to the gills with gaming features. However, it's the incredibly deep curve each one sports that is likely to catch your eye.
Both the Odyssey G9 and G7 feature a 1000R curvature, which Samsung claims makes them the "world's first high-performance 1000R curved" displays. For those who prefer a curved display, that should mean even more immersive gaming as the screen wraps around your vision.
Both monitors also feature a sleek design language with a glowing orb of light at their rear, which has become a signature of Samsung's gaming displays. The orbs can light up in 52 colors with up five lighting effects options on the G9. Each monitor also includes a 1ms response time, a 240Hz refresh rate, and support for both NVIDIA G-Sync and Adaptive Sync.
The Odyssey G9 comes in a massive 49-inch size with a 5120×1440 resolution and can hit up to 1000 cd/m2 peak brightness. There's also support for HDR1000 with the VA panel, meaning you'll get the benefits of HDR's deeper blacks, brighter colors, and contrast in games and media that support it. The Odyssey G9 is available with a white exterior.
The Odyssey G7, meanwhile, carries forward much of the same features as the G9, just in smaller sizes. You can pick up the G7 in black with a QHD 2560×1440 resolution in 27- or 32-inch sizes. Both can hit up to 600 cd/m2 peak brightness and supports HDR600.
There's no pricing information available for either the Odyssey G9 or G7, but Samsung says it expects both to become available globally in the second quarter of 2020.
