Samsung has teased a new gaming monitor called the Odyssey Neo G8 ahead of its CES showcase.
According to a press release shared by the company, this is the world’s first 4K (3,840×2,160) monitor with 240 Hz refresh rate. That’s a notable improvement over the faster UHD panels on the current market, which tap out at 120 or 144 Hz.
“As the world’s first monitor to feature a 4K (3,840×2,160) 1000R curved screen with 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms 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,” Samsung wrote.
“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.”
DisplaySpecifications has reported that Samsung’s Odyssey Neo G8 is equipped with 2x HDMI 2.1 ports and 1x DisplayPort 1.4. The monitor also includes a CoreSync feature that automatically matches its backlighting with the colors that are being displayed on the screen.
