Samsung has announced a new curved monitor as part of its Odyssey lineup, called the Odyssey G7 gaming monitor. It comes in two sizes – 27-inches and 32-inches, features a 240HZ panel with 1ms response time and is known to be the world’s first curved gaming monitor with a 1000R curvature.
A 1000R curvature is quite extreme, considering the average curved monitor has an 1800R curve. Pairing this with a resolution of 2,560×1,440, 16:9 aspect ratio, 600 cd/m2 peak brightness, quantum dot technology, 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG response time, the gaming experience should be quite great. Other features include NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility and Adaptive Sync.
The Odyssey G7 is priced at 900000 won (Approx. Rs. 55,501) for 32-inch and 800000 won (Approx. Rs. 49,348) for 27-inch and will launch globally in June.
Commenting on the launch, Hyesung Ha, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said:
Samsung is maintaining its position as the global gaming monitor market leader with continued innovation in creating immersive, next-generation gaming experiences, pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Samsung Odyssey G7 curved monitor is the ultimate combination of curvature, comfort and competitive edge, giving gamers the advanced performance they need and demand
