CES 2022. The Odyssey Neo G8 is the most interesting model of the new monitors that Samsung has just presented at the Las Vegas fair.

Odyssey Neo G8, a gaming monitor
Of course, it has its own characteristics that make it stand out from the rest, such as being the first monitor on the market with a refresh rate of 240 Hz at 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) and a bend rate of 1000R.
Like its older brothers, its panel is based on technology Quantum Mini LED from Samsung, which should provide deep, realistic blacks and CoreSync lighting technology, which detects colors on the screen and projects them to the back of the monitor for deeper immersion.
The rest of the features scratch at a high level, Quantum HDR 2000 support, a maximum brightness of 2,000 nits, a static contrast ratio of one million to one and a 1 millisecond response time. It also supports leading image sync technologies, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-SYNC compliant. Includes Display Port 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 digital inputs with variable refresh rate.
In short, the Odyssey Neo G8 is basically a smaller Neo G9, which makes it ideal for someone who wants the same technology but doesn’t have the space (or budget) for a 49-inch monitor. Notably, this G8 also has a larger vertical resolution than the Neo G9 (2160 vs. 1440 pixels), which means that the user who has the audacity (and budget) to buy a couple of these models and turn them into a configuration dual monitor. Samsung has not provided pricing or availability.
