New Samsung high-end Odyssey gaming monitors

Depending on how colour accurate it is, that G9 could make a pretty great work monitor that covers gaming as well.

The current 1080p version of this, the Samsung C49HG90 with 144Hz, is R23k locally. So I wonder what the G9 will cost.

Who the **** needs to game on a 49 inch monitor? That is seriously overkill.

34 inch widescreen is the ultimate. Why did they not release one in this form factor. HDR high refresh qled would have been a dream

There is no GPU (nvlink or not) that will be able to fill those pixels at respectable frame rates
Nvidia Ampere: Here, hold my beer ;)

All speculation at this stage, but apparently:
Nvidia's next gen GPU's (Ampere, to be released Q2 of 2020) are rumored to have 30%-50% performance increase over their current turing counterparts...or so the story goes.

This is a good article to understand MPRT, which is the only variable Samsung quote to indicate their response time on QLED iirc.


It is rare to see both the MPRT and GtG highlighted in the spec sheets.

As with most brands, they market their pure gainable or overclock achievable tables to be more attractive. Settings which may be worse than standard in practice. These Odyssey monitors will be premium, but it is only quoted on MPRT as 1ms which should be taken with discretion though these grade monitors should have little to no motion blur.

On budget monitors, never trust the response times. Especially on Dell entry levels which is suppose to be a premium brand.

Reviews and Lim's Cave are the way to go when considering monitors, but Lim isn't as active anymore. There are other reviewers doing similar monitor tests and corrections.
