Samsung OLED gaming monitors are now available in more shapes and sizes and with frequencies up to 360 Hz

Samsung announced a Three new gaming screens Ahead of CES 2024. There's a 49-inch ultra-wide curved Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SD), a 32-inch flat Odyssey OLED G8 (G80SD), and a 27-inch flat Odyssey OLED G6 (G60SD). The latter two displays are the first flat displays that Samsung has brought to the Odyssey lineup.

Because I'm a simple guy with simple needs, the Odyssey OLED G6 is the most interesting of these models to me on paper.

Do I really think I'll be able to perceive the difference in refresh rate between 240Hz and 360Hz on an OLED display? of course no. But the larger number warms the shells of my heart.

Next in the lineup is the Odyssey OLED G8, a 32-inch flat 4K display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 240Hz refresh rate. Then there's the Odyssey OLED G9, a 49-inch curved one that refreshes at 240Hz, has a 32:9 aspect ratio and has a resolution of 5120 x 1440. There's no 32-inch 1440p option, like Samsung previously offered with its display Odyssey G7.
