Nowadays, you can barely impress a gamer with just a curved display. So when Samsung started development of its new Odyssey G9 and Odyssey G7 gaming monitors, it decided to make them ultra-curved, ultra-fast, ultra-bright, and ultra-futuristic. As a result, the new Odyssey LCDs for gamers feature a unique combination of a 1000R curvature, a quantum dot enhanced backlighting, and variable refresh rate support up to 240 Hz.

From a gamer’️s perspective, the key features of the Samsung Odyssey displays are their 240 Hz refresh rate, complete with variable refresh rate support. Samsung's specifications don't make this entirely clear, but it looks like the display uses VESA Adaptive Sync, meaning that it's supported with both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs.

Meanwhile, the monitor also sports a 1000R curvature that promises to enable better immersion when compared to regular curved LCDs.

Serious question here: what's the problem regular monitors have that a curved monitor solves? I'm curious about it's effects from a competitive standpoint, cuz I play mostly multiplayer games. Sure I want my games to look good too, but I could look at tons of flat monitors for that. Is it just for more immersive gameplay, or is there something more to it?

Yup, directly to a 48" LG OLED.

Did I miss something or do these not have independently lit backlight zones? You kind of need them for HDR1000 on an LED panel.

Uniformity since the edges are closer than a flat panel along with immersion.

Burn in is the deal breaker for me. I always keep my Samsung phones for two years since that's when they start showing signs of burn in. My galaxy S8+ was bad after a year.

Though the design of it looks good, it's still an LCD monitor. Once you go OLED (especially 4K 120Hz OLED ), there's no going back to LCD IMO.

I thought I read somewhere that the G9 was expected to have an MSRP north of $2,000, so if burn in is an issue, you could just buy 2 of the OLEDs and replace the one when burn in sets in for the same price.

I'd like Samsung to focus a little more on making something normal rather than gigantic weird curved monstrosities. Give me a nice Samsung competitor to the X27 please. Their monitor line is very blah.

i've seen two stories assume it'll launch with an MSRP = to C9's at release, based off of not much aside from pricing history and a bit of maths between 75, 65, & 55. I expect it to regularly reach ~$1200 after a year, c9 55 gets down that low rather often.

it doesn't have a genuine g-sync module, it's just vrr over hdmi 2.1 certified.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
