Samsung has just announced the availability of the Odyssey Neo G8, the world’s first 4K monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate.

Released alongside the Odyssey Neo G7 and Odyssey Neo G4, the Odyssey Neo G8 combines a 32-inch, 4K 1000R curved VA panel with Quantum Matrix technology and 95 percent color gamut coverage, with a fast 240Hz refresh rate and a tiny 1ms GtG response time.

The panel uses Quantum Mini LED technology for ultra-precise color and image composition. Quantum HDR2000 with a static contrast ratio of million-to-one and peak brightness of 2000 nits delivers unparalleled detail and color for next-level immersion.

It also features a height-adjustable stand with swivel and tilt function, for perfect and personalized positioning.
