Samsung has Published Compared to the curved model that can do 4K at 144Hz, its latest volume includes a flat for budget Odyssey gaming monitors. It released a QHD model with HDR10 support and a pair of budget-oriented 1080P displays.
Unlike Samsung’s curve G9 and G7 models, The Odyssey G7 28 (G70) has a flat panel and uses IPS rather than QLED technology. With HDMI 2.1 compatibility, it can do 4K up to 144 Hz, meaning it will support Sony’s PS5 and Xbox Series X models at 4K 120Hz and 4K120Hz. It offers wide 178 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles, 1-millisecond response times, and compatibility with AMD Freesink Premium Pro and Nvidia G-CNC.
With IPS over QLED, it’s not nearly as bright as the curved G7 and G9 models, but still offers Vesa HDR400 support with average and peak brightness levels of 350 and 400nit, respectively, though just 8-bit color support. It should be decent, but not surprising for hobby jobs.
The company also unveiled the G5 27 (G50A) QHD (2,560 x 1,440) flat model with 165 Hz upgrade, 1 millisecond response time and G-Science / Freesink premium compatibility. It is reasonably bright and color-accurate with 400 brightness brightness and 10-bit support for the IPS monitor, although it is not compatible with the Vesa HDR400. Finally, Samsung released a pair of 1080p models, the G3 27 and G3 24 (G30A) models with 144 Hz refresh rates and 1 millisecond refresh rate, as well as AMD Freesink premium compatibility.
