The World’s First 4K 240Hz Curved Gaming Monitor is Available For Pre-Order
Samsung announced the Neo G8 curved gaming monitor that features both a 4K resolution panel and a high refresh rate of 240Hz. It’s a first for 4K gaming monitors.
Right now you can pre-order the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8. It’s not a pre-order but a way to have your spot held in line for when pre-orders finally open up on June 6.
Samsung is also giving out a $50 discount for anyone who signs up. Considering that we don’t know where pricing will land on this thing, even a little discount helps.
The 32-inch curved Neo G8 was revealed around CES 2022 when Samsung touted its “Quantum HDR 2000,” which lets the monitor’s peak brightness reach upwards to 2,000 nits and claimed to have the industry’s highest fixed contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 which would give the blackest of blacks. The refresh rate is the real star here: Right now, the highest refresh rate for a 4K gaming monitor is 144Hz.
Despite 360Hz gaming monitors barely having time to settle in, companies are already teasing 1080p 480Hz monitors for the future. Pair this with the prospect of the Nvidia’s rumored RTX 40-series coming out in the late 2022 release, and you’ve got yourself the makings of a fun end of the year.
We don’t have a price or release date for the Neo G8, but we’ll get to know both on June 6 when pre-orders are live.
