Samsung has unveiled its curviest display yet in the new 49-inch QLED Odyssey G9 gaming monitor. Sporting 5120×1440 resolution and HDR1000, the Odyssey G9 also possesses support for both AMD’s FreeSync 2 and Nvidia G-Sync, up to a 240Hz refresh rate, as well as a 1ms response time.
The design features a glossy white exterior and an infinity core light at the rear core that glows in 2 different colors with five lighting effect options. The product also serves as Samsung’s first display with an 1000R curve, which means the monitor curves more than most displays, which usually range from 4000R to 1800R. This allows for a more immersive gaming experience that utilizes the player’s field of view.
Samsung has yet to announce a price or release date for the display, but it is expected to be shown during CES at the Central Hall from January 7-10, 2020.
In other tech news, Apple won a patent for virtual acoustics in future MacBooks.
