Samsung Odyssey Neo G8, World First 4K 240Hz Monitor

Samsung has announced a smaller version of its Odyssey Neo curved gaming monitor. The Odyssey Neo G8 is a 32-inch gaming monitor. It also features a 1000R curvature and Quantum Mini LED backlighting.

The mini LED backlighting system uses units that are 1/40th the size of conventional LED units. With Samsung’s Quantum Matrix and Quantum HDR 2000 technologies, the display can achieve up to 2000 nits of peak brightness in HDR content with 4096 step backlight adjustment.

The monitor also supports dual HDMI 2.1 ports and a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection. The Auto Source Switch+ feature will automatically change sources when a connected device is powered on.

Samsung hasn’t shared a price or a release date for the Odyssey Neo G8, but it’s offering up just a few images and details until a later date. Aside from the difference in size, the Odyssey Neo G8 has a similar design language to the G9, though the key difference is that the G8 boosts the resolution from QHD Plus to 4K.

Samsung says this is the first 4K monitor to support a 240Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time.

Pricing and availability will be announced at CES 2022 from 5-7 January in Las Vegas.
