Samsung has unveiled an update to its Odyssey gaming monitor lineup. The line of displays, now flat rather than curved like the previous generation, includes models from 24 “to 28”, each with reduced response times. The terms of appearance on sale and the cost of the monitors have not yet been announced.
The 28-inch Odyssey G7, 27-inch Odyssey G5 have 4K-resolution Ultra High Definition (38402160 pixels) and QHD (25601440 pixels), respectively, and the image quality is enhanced by HDR400 technologies, NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro. The top-end G7 monitor has a 144Hz refresh rate (the G5 has 165Hz), and both models have a 1ms response time.
A feature of the new gaming monitors is support for PBP mode with two images side by side and PIP with a picture inside the picture. The Odyssey G7 is also adapted to work at maximum refresh rate and maximum resolution with both computers and game consoles – the Auto Source Switch + function automatically switches the monitor to an active connected device, so the owner does not need to manually switch between PC and console.
In addition to the top models, Samsung also introduced 24- and 27-inch versions of the Odyssey G3 monitor with Full HD-resolution (1920×1080 pixels) and a refresh rate of 144 Hz.
