Samsung ready with smaller Odyssey screens

Samsung tends to make headlines with its Odyssey gaming monitors by being insanely, enormously large. But the latest two models bring their acclaimed OLED panels to more conventional form factors.

You can choose a large (but not too large) screen of 32 inches with 4K resolution, or a fast screen of 27 inches.

The Odyssey G80SD is the one you want if you're interested in showing off your expensive graphics card's capabilities, with a 32-inch, 3840×2160 panel. And with the same built-in streaming technology as Samsung's smart TV series, you can do it even if your gaming PC isn't in the room. With 240Hz and 0.03ms response time, it's fast, but not so fast that it will impress esports enthusiasts. With DisplayPort and dual HDMI, but no USB-C video (although there is a 2-port hub), we can hope it won't be too expensive. Maybe.


The Samsung Odyssey G60SD is the faster of the two, with a downgraded 27-inch, 1440p panel but with a 360Hz refresh rate. It doesn't have smart technology and built-in speakers, so it's definitely the more PC-focused model here, although both come with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certification (no word on Nvidia's G-Sync). The smaller Odyssey has the same ports.

Both displays come with flat, "glare-free" panels, which should help, as their brightness is a little disappointing at just 250 nits. They also include Samsung OLED Safeguard+, a "proprietary burn-in protection technology" that uses a pulsating heat conduction tube combined with a new evaporative cooling system and brightness reduction for static images.

Samsung didn't mention release dates or prices, but both screens are labeled as "2024 models," so presumably they'll be available before the end of the year.
