Back at CES 2020, Samsung revealed a crazy monitor, a screen which combined a 5120x1440 (dual-wide 1440p) screen with an ultra-fast 240Hz refresh rate. In basic terms, this is two 240Hz 1440p screens merged into one, offering users a 1000R curvature to make the screen ideal foroffice and gaming setups. 

What's so special about 1000R curved displays? Research suggests that it is the optimal level of display curvature for productivity, closely matching the peripheral vision of humans at standard desk-to-face distances. With a 1000R curvature, this monitor is designed to be 1000mm away from the user's face, which is ideal for most desk or office setups. 

On the high-end, Samsung's new Odyssey G9 monitor delivers users a huge 49-inch 5120x1440 (dual-wide 1440p) screen with a DisplayHDR 1000 rating and support for refresh rates up to 240Hz. This screen also offers users a response time of 1ms, and supports AMD's FreeSync 2 technology while also being G-Sync Compatible. 

With such a high resolution and refresh rate, Samsung's Odyssey G9 must utilise DisplayPort 1.3/1.4 to maintain the screen's required bandwidth levels. 

This screen uses a VA panel and uses QLED (Quantum Dot) technology to deliver VESA DisplayHDR1000 certified HDR support, a wide colour gamut of 95% DCI-P3 and 92% Adobe RGB coverage. This screen also supports full 10-bit colour depths and used edge-lit local dimming to deliver deeper blacks than standard PC monitors. While this isn't an OLED screen, it's definitely better than your average PC monitor.

Overclockers UK currently has this screen up for pre-order for £1,279.99, which is an incredibly high price, but reasonable given the specifications of this monitor. Retail availability is expected within the next few weeks.  

Samsung promises 2ms of input lag with this monitor, support for Picture-in-Picture modes and inputs which include DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0. This monitor is also fully compliant with VESA monitor arms, with the stock stand supporting swivel, tilt and height adjustment options.

It isn't that expensive. PG35VQ and Predator X35 are twice as much. I want it regardless.Quote

5120x1440 @240Hz requires over 50Gbps of bandwidth, which DP 1.4 cannot provide. Bogus marketing speech, it will limit either the resolution or the refresh. And this is coming from the owner of CRG9, which is a previous model. Right now it won't do native resolution in 4:4:4 chroma HDR, due to bandwidth limitations, let alone 240Hz.Quote

Who the hell sits a meter away from there screen I try to bring my face as close as possible, Also this would not cover your peripheral vision as they claim. I am currently sitting in front of a CRG9 and your nose needs to be 3 inches away from the screen in order to cover your peripheral vision. I would also prefer mini leds with 100's- 1000s of zones instead of 240hz 5120x1440 is nearly as difficult to push as 4k.Quote

Surely this will just use DSC instead?Quote

Yeah I got one too you need to set the panel to 100hz in order to get 10bit I rarely set mine above 100hz since its difficult to push above that frame rate anyhow. Maybe they are using HDMI 2.1? 2.1 can push 48Gbsps



I was able to overclock mine to 148hz at 1440p or 152hz at 1080p


Have you tried overclocking yours?


also... 1000r? That seems retarded I don't know about you but with our 1800r monitors you get some colour shifting on the sides imagine how awful it will be at 1000r?


What were they thinking?!Quote
