CES 2020 hasn't started yet, but that hasn't stopped Samsung from pre-revealing its Odyssey series of QLED gaming monitors, which come with the world's first 1000R curved screens with 240Hz refresh rates. 

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.

At CES 2020, Samsung plans to showcase its 49-inch Odyssey G9 display alongside two G7 models, each of which boasts a resolution of 2560x1440 (1440p) and DisplayHDR 600 certification. Both G7 series screens also boast a 240Hz refresh rate and both FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility.

More details about these screens are due to be released at CES 2020. At this time the pricing of these screens is unknown, though they are unlikely to be cheap.

1 - that looks really sharp


2 - going to be very expensive I wager.


3 - "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." this is hilarious to me as 1k mm is "roughly" 39 inches. Most people do not sit that far away from monitors and what is even more ironic is the photo they use showing the monitor on a desk with the keyboard and mouse really really close... yeah I want to sit that close to my gigantic monitor...yes :PQuote

1000 mm is a meter, your arms are more or less a meter. If I put them in front of me right now I cannot touch my screen. How close do you sit to your screenQuote

At 1m away, your eyes are at the center of the circle which the display wraps itself around. As such, the screen is an equal distance from your eyes across its radius. Most curved displays a 1800R, making them

The desk pictured is a lot deeper than the desk I use, and I use an equivalent display config (in terms of size and resolution) that uses two 27-inch 1440p screens. Just measured and with correct posture my eyes are 85cm away. If I used a deeper desk, which I would if I could, I would be 1000mm away. For a screen that wide you need to be far away to see it all.Quote

This is going to require more than DP 1.3/1.4 or HDMI 2.1. at a total of 53.08 Gbps with an 8bit panel.Quote
