Samsung Electronics announced the launch of global sales of the Odyssey 2022 line of gaming monitors, which is represented by three models – G85NB, G75NB and G40B.

It is available in a single size – with a 32-inch screen.
Odyssey Neo G8 (G85NB)
The Odyssey Neo G8 was first announced at last week’s CES 2022, along with the 32-inch Smart Monitor M8 for home entertainment and the professional High Resolution Monitor S8. This is the compact version of the 49-inch gaming enabled Odyssey G9, which was released by the end of 2021 at a recommended price of UAH 59,999. The new Odyssey Neo G8 features a 32-inch Quantum Mini LED panel with a total capacity of 3840×2160 pixels and a maximum refresh rate of 240 Hz.
In terms of parameters, the 32-inch Odyssey Neo G8 is in no way inferior to the older 49-inch version: current brightness reaches 2000 nits, response time is 1 ms (G2G), and a static contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro adaptive framing support and HDMI 2.1 with Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) also remain in place. The curvature radius is analogous to 1000 mm.
Design has also remained unchanged: Odyssey Neo G8 is painted in glossy white color with dark frames and equipped with an adjustable stand. The back panel features RGB-lighting Core Lighting with CoreSync function.
Odyssey Neo G7 (G75NB).
The Odyssey Neo G7 (G75NB) is located at the bottom of the table, a 32-inch 4K (3840×2160) monitor with a VA 1000R panel, 165 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time (GtG), which ensures excellent gaming performance.
The Odyssey Neo G7 has also taken on most of the features of the Odyssey Neo G8 including AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, Quantum Mini LED technology and Quantum HDR 2000 with 2000 nits of instantaneous brilliance and a static 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
A powerful gaming performance is enhanced by the CoreSync button on the back of the monitor.
