After launching 2 monitor models G5 and G7 last year, today SamSung has launched 3 more Odyssey 2021 monitor models with a lot of outstanding features such as equipped with high refresh rate, AMD FreeSync compatibility and price. Flexible support can comfortably adjust the height, rotation, tilt …
The G70A is the flagship model with a 28-inch, 3840×2160 IPS panel with a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. The panel peaks at 400 nits, with 300 nits typical, and it supports the VESA Display HDR 400 standard. The G70A also has AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support and is Nvidia G-SYNC certified.
To support the combination of high resolution and high refresh rate, the G70A comes with a single DisplayPort 1.4 and dual HDMI 2.1 ports. The latter will allow connection of the latest generation consoles, such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which require HDMI 2.1 for their 4K 120Hz output. Auto Source Switch+ allows the monitor to automatically turn on and switch to the correct source when the connected device is turned on.
Next is the G50A. This model has a 27-inch IPS screen, 2560×1440 resolution with a refresh rate of up to 165Hz. It supports HDR10 and has a typical brightness of 350 nits. The G50A supports FreeSync Premium and is also G-SYNC compatible. Connections include a DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0.
Both the G70A and G50A have additional features, such as Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture, Low Input Lag Mode, Super Arena Gaming UX, Ultrawide Game View and CoreSync Lighting. Both also advertise 1ms GTG response time.
Finally, the G30A. This model comes in 27-inch and 24-inch sizes, but on both versions it’s a VA panel with a 1920×1080 resolution and up to 144Hz refresh rate. There is no HDR support and the maximum brightness is around 250 nits. The G30A supports FreeSync Premium but is not G-SYNC-compatible by Nvidia. Port selection is limited to one DisplayPort 1.2 and one HDMI 1.4.
