For gamers, it’s good news as Samsung recently launched a new curved monitor as part of its Odyssey lineup, called the Odyssey G7 gaming monitor. The first, the Odyssey G7, comes in two sizes, 27 and 32 inches, which are priced at $699.99 and $799.99, respectively. The bigger 49-inch Odyssey G9 with a 32:9 aspect ratio costs $1,699.99. This will make gameplay look super smooth, assuming your graphics card can deliver high frame rates.
Each model has a 1440p QLED 1000R curved VA panel with a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and support for FreeSync 2 and G-Sync variable refresh rate technologies.
There are some differences aside from the size. The Odyssey G9’s display is at 5120 x 1440 resolution, while the G7’s is at 2560 x 1440. The more expensive G9 version has an HDR1000 rating, which is brighter than the HDR600 rating for both sizes of the G7.
In terms of aesthetics, these two monitors look similar at a distance; however, the G9 has glossy white plastic on the back whereas the G7 uses matte black plastic around the rear with small blue triangular vents on the front. Both carry the futuristic Iron Man-esque reactor core design where the stand meets the monitor.
