Samsung 4K 240HZ Gaming Monitor Released on June 6th

The amazing gaming monitor that Samsung debuted at CES could be yours next month.

The company’s 4K 240Hz Odyssey Neo G8 monitor pushes the limits of what you see on display. There are many gaming monitors that exceed 240Hz refresh rates, including fairly inexpensive options, but I’ve never seen a consumer model reach these speeds while offering 4K resolution. That changes with the Odyssey Neo G8.

Samsung has just opened its doors. reservation system(Opens in a new window) We offer a $50 discount to those who book one for a monitor. The $1,500 display arrives June 6th.

The 32-inch monitor features Quantum HDR2000, Samsung’s HDR mix powered by a 4K/240Hz combination and 1,196 Quantum Mini-LED backlight zones that can boost highlights and contrast at a more granular level than standard LCDs, with a 1ms response time. . display. The display will have a 1000R curvature, which is rather unusual for a monitor without an ultrawide form factor, especially without such a narrow curvature. FreeSync Premium Pro support is not much of a surprise for an expensive monitor of this caliber.

Samsung’s promise of 4K video running at 240Hz is part of the natural process of monitor development, but there are still some questions about how Samsung will enable this feature for users. The monitor has a DisplayPort 1.4 connection and two HDMI 2.1 ports. Neither port type can support uncompressed 4K/240Hz signals by itself.

The monitor can combine two HDMI 2.1 ports for a single input source for a rather sophisticated solution. Ars Technica proposes(Opens in a new window). VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) can be another means of pumping additional data over the narrow pipes of HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4. DisplayPort 2.0 was a natural choice for additional bandwidth, but the standard has not yet appeared on displays and graphics cards.

However, Samsung will ultimately achieve 4K at 240Hz. It will become clear in the coming weeks when the Odyssey Neo G8 hits the market and challenges the best gaming monitor available.
