The Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 is a 32-inch curved monitor that got announced in the month of January. It wasn’t available for sale immediately after its launch but was open for reservation via Samsung’s official website. The curved gaming monitor is now available for sale in certain regions in third-party retail stores for 10,999 yuan (~$1,659).
This monitor supports a curved 4K mini LED screen with support for up to 240Hz refresh rate and a 2ms response time. At this speed, the new Samsung Odyssey monitor is one of the fastest gaming monitors of its kind. The curvature on this monitor is quite decent at 1000R, making for a more immersive viewing experience.
Certainly, this is an aggressive looking monitor that might not appeal to everyone. Despite this fact, it still comes packed with lots of gaming features. The Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 will be able to adjust its refresh rate to perfectly suit the type of GPU you decide to use. Therefore, it promises no lags while you play your favourite games with friends.
This surely isn’t the first time Samsung is trying a curved monitor display, the Odyssey Neo G9 from last year is proof of this. The company has also dabbled into curved TV displays, meaning that it sees a market where these kinds of devices will fit in without any hindrance.
