Samsung has officially unveiled their 2021 refresh of their Odyssey gaming monitors that will probably be heading to the Philippines in the near future. The big change from this year’s offering from last year is the distinct lack of curved screens, with all three new models sporting flat panels.
The top of the end model is 28-inch Odyssey G7 (G70A), which sports a UHD (4K) resolution, as well as a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. The monitor is both NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro compatible so you won’t have to worry about your frames if you have hardware that can drive 4K that fast. It also has HDMI 2.1 compatibility, which means you’ll be able to enjoy 120Hz refresh rates with next-generation consoles as well.
The mid-range 27-inch Odyssey G5 (G50A) is a QHD (1440p) resolution panel that has a 144Hz refresh rate as well as a 1ms response time, paired with AMD FreeSync Premium for smoother frames. The monitor has HDR10 compatibility and is G-Sync Compatible as well.
At the lower end of the stack is the Odyssey G3 (G30A) which comes in both 27- and 24-inch varieties. The displays have 144Hz refresh rates as well as full HD resolutions and come with AMD Freesync Premium. No G-Sync compatibility here though, sadly, though you do get 1ms (MPRT) response time with it.
No pricing or availability has been set for the Samsung 2021 Odyssey gaming monitors for the Philippines for now.
