Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor Announced Ahead Of CES 2020


Samsung has a couple of announcements to make, even before the CES 2020 event. One includes the new pair of Samsung Odyssey G9 QLED gaming monitors with a massive 49-inch curved screen. If the reports are to be believed, this could be the curviest of the screens launched by the company so far.

The Odyssey G9 has some of the best specs when compared to the previous generations of gaming monitors. It comes with 5120x1440 resolution with twice the refresh rate, at up to 240Hz. The monitor also features 1ms response time and supports both AMD's FreeSync 2 and the newly introduced Nvidia G-Sync.

Adding to the list of firsts, the Samsung Odyssey G9 has a 1000R curve that fills roughly the same field view of the human eye. Usually, the monitor curvature ranges from 4000R to 1800R. This means that the new 49-inch Odyssey G9 monitor has more than the most displays, including the previous Samsung CRG9.
