After launching the Odyssey G5 and Odyssey G7 gaming monitors last year, Samsung has expanded its Odyssey gaming monitor line-up with the launch of four new models: 24-inch Odyssey G3 (G30A), 27-inch Odyssey G3 (G30A), 27-inch Odyssey G5 (G50A), and 28-inch Odyssey G7 (G70A). All these monitors come with high-refresh-rate displays, Adaptive Sync with AMD FreeSync, and a height-adjustable stand (with pivot, swivel, and tilt).
The Odyssey G7 (G70A) is the highest-end monitor among the four new models, and it features a 28-inch LCD display with 4K resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms GTG response time, and a peak brightness of 400 nits. It is DisplayHDR 400-certified by VESA and is compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro. Since it offers 4K 120Hz gaming, it can be a great monitor for your brand-new PC or the latest-generation gaming consoles like the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X. It also features Auto Source Switch+, a Display Port 1.4 port, an HDMI 2.1 port, and two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports.
The Odyssey G5 (G50) is a 27-inch QHD gaming monitor with a 165Hz refresh rate, 350 nits peak brightness, HDR10, and 1ms GTG response time. It is compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. It has a Display Port 1.4 port and an HDMI 2.0 port. The Odyssey G3 (G30A) comes in two sizes: 24-inch and 27-inch. Both versions of the monitor have Full HD resolution, 250 nits peak brightness, 1ms response time, a 144Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync Premium, one Display Port 1.2 port, and one HDMI 1.2 port.
All three monitors feature 100 x 100 VESA mounts and a height-adjustable stand (with pivot, swivel, and tilt). They also feature Black Equalizer, Eye Saver Mode, low input lag, Refresh Rate Optimizer, Samsung’s Super Arena Gaming UX, Ultrawide Game View (21:9 and 32:9 aspect ratio), and RGB CoreSync Lighting at the rear that can match the game’s ambient colors. Other features include Picture-by-Picture and Picture-in-Picture modes.
Samsung hasn’t unveiled the pricing or availability of its new Odyssey series gaming monitors for the international market yet. Expect them to be launched in South Korea and then in markets like Europe, North America, Australia, and the Indian subcontinet.
Hyesung Ha, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said, “Gaming connects the entire world through shared experiences, bringing together people of all backgrounds for adventures into new realities. The expanded Odyssey gaming monitor lineup will enrich these experiences to more players, whether they are seeking tournament victories or just looking to explore the next great game.”
