Samsung to Unveil Odyssey 49G9 Curved Gaming Monitor with 5120×1440 at 240 Hz

While CES 2020 hasn’t even begun yet, Samsung has decided to beat everyone to the punch by unleashing three brand new gaming monitors in its Odyssey range.

The Samsung Odyssey 49G9 is a 49-inch QLED VA monitor with a display resolution of 5120×1440 at a 240 Hz refresh rate! This ultra-wide screen has a 600 nit brightness with VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification. It also has NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility and supports AMD FreeSync 2. This 240 Hz immersive gaming experiences comes with a 1ms response time too.

Perhaps what is most striking about the G9 is the way it looks, as it’s one of Samsung’s curvier screens with a 1000R curvature, which is roughly the same field of view as the human eye, giving the impression that the screen is wrapped around your head!

The G9 also has a space-age look about it with a new design, white glossy exterior and what Samsung brands a “futuristic infinity core” lighting the back of the screen with 52 colours and five lighting effect options.

Not to be outdone in the Odyssey range, the G7 has also been unveiled in the 32G7 and the 27G7. As expected, these monitors are 32-inch and 27-inch respectively, with both offering VA panels at 2560×1440.

They both offer NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and AMD FreeSync 2 support with 240 Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and DisplayHDR 600 certification. Both of these 16:9 panels will offer the same 1000R curvature too.

For now, it seems that the only difference between the G9 and the G7 range apart from the size is the HDR rating. With CES kicking off shortly, we’ll likely soon find release date and pricing info for these new monitors.

Now this is what I’m talking about.

5120×1440, 240hz, 1ms, HDR1000. That is cornering the fucking market. That is pushing our current cable standards to the brink of whats possible (until DP2.0 hits both monitors and gpus)

I am super excited. I bought the samsung CHG70 27″ which is 1440p, 144hz, HDR600 over a year ago and it was a nice monitor. But I felt like I needed more refresh rate… at the time I was using an AMD 1800x with a 1080ti…. later dropped the 1080ti and got a Radeon VII…. both gpu’s are capable of hitting extreme fps even at 1440p….

so the shameful news articles saying “no one can drive 1440p ultra wide at 240fps” is just insane. sure in the absolute newest titles with the most absolute max settings I could see me getting 100-180 fps…. but when you drop settings from ultra to medium or even low, you gain fps. (and even then, 180fps is over the 144hz refresh rate of most 1440p monitors!)

So along my story, I decided to pick up a 240hz 1080p from alienware. And I have to say, I am torn between the two monitors. While the 1440p offers a much sharper image which is great for pixel spotting enemies in fps shooters and overall visual fidelity, the 240hz gives better tracking and smoothness to the game which can help with aiming/tracing and flick shots…. I thought “why not offer 1440p and 240hz”….

well this year its becoming a reality. about damn time.

currently running 3950x and my radeon vii and my fps damn near doubled from my 1800x…. the fps change is insane. reviews online do NOT give the 3950x justice. I set it to 4.2ghz all core overclock (fuck pbo and all that bullshit) and it gives me insane fps. My average in CS:GO for example with 1800x/R7 was about 250ish. My average now with the 3950x is 460fps…. insane change. Apex Legends on 1800x/R7 used to give me 70-150 fps 1080p mixed settings, now I am getting 120-250 which is a huge buff. All my games have seen similar boosts (unless its a really old game which just hasn’t kept up with the times, like heroes & general’s, (only gained like 20fps in that title, and don’t play due to cheater infestation)
