At the Show Consumer Electronic Show (CES), Samsung is presenting an extremely curved monitor. The 32: 9, 49-inch QLED format has a resolution of 5120 × 1440 pixels and a refresh rate of 240 Hz.
The screen is HDR 1000 certified. It supports AMD’s FreeSync2 and is also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync.
Extreme bending, as Verge puts it, conveys an all-inclusive experience “where the screen feels like it’s on all sides.” There’s a big blue light on the back, which makes the screen appear like a science fiction movie.
Along with the Odyssey G9, Samsung also announced the smaller Odyssey G7 monitors. They should be available in 32- and 27-inch versions in 16: 9 format and 2560 × 1440 pixels resolution.
The refresh rate is also 240 Hz, the brightness is lower with the HDR600 than with the Odyssey G9. Like the larger model, the Odyssey G7 comes with a radius of 1000. Prices for these screens range from 1200 eruo and above.
