Samsung announces the Odyssey Neo G8, the world’s first 4K 240Hz gaming monitor

4K gaming monitors have been around for a while now, but they’ve not been able to offer the same sky-high refresh rates as other lower resolution offerings. As a result, players previously had to choose whether to prioritise image quality or opt for a more responsive experience when buying a new display. However, Samsung hopes to marry the best of both worlds and has recently announced its plans to make the first 4K 240Hz gaming monitor: the Odyssey Neo G8.

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 comes with all the top of the line specifications you’d expect from the best gaming monitors, in addition to some other creature comforts. The G8 will feature a single DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1 inputs, the latter of which will be your means of unlocking the monitor’s 4K 240Hz potential. It should be noted, however, that you’ll also need a GPU with HDMI 2.1 ports, such as Nvidia’s RTX 3000 graphics cards.

As well as being both sharp and responsive, the G8 boasts a 32-inch Quantum Mini LED panel bolstered by a Quantum HDR 2000 certification, which means it should offer great contrast, deep black levels, and generally fantastic image quality.
