South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics said Sunday it plans to unveil the world’s first gaming monitor with both a 4K resolution and a 240 Hz refresh rate display at the upcoming CES 2022.
Thus far, gaming monitors with ultrahigh definition — having the resolution of 3,840 pixels wide and 2,160 pixels high — have shown a latency of 144 Hz display.
With the new 32-inch monitor, dubbed Odyssey Neo G8, Samsung Electronics is expected to show off the technology with the unprecedentedly high refresh rate and 1 millisecond gray-to-gray response time, allowing a smoother motion than in the conventional ultrahigh resolution monitors.
Samsung Electronics added that Odyssey Neo G8 will use quantum-mini light-emitting diode and has a curvature of 1000R, meaning the curved monitor would form a circle with a 1-meter radius.
Odyssey Neo G8 is one of the three brand-new products along with the updated flagship models for 2022, 32-inch smart monitor M8 and high-resolution monitor S8. All three monitors will be rolled out in the first half worldwide, Samsung Electronics said.
