At Gamescom today, Samsung will unveil four new gaming monitors, the first Odyssey models to have the company’s Gaming Hub. This gaming portal offers quick and simple access to the game streaming services offered by Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Nvidia GeForce Now.
Both the Samsung Odyssey G70B and G65B are primarily intended for use with PCs. The G70B is a flat IPS display with support for 4K at 144Hz and 1ms gray-to-gray (GtG) reaction speeds, and it is available in 27- and 32-inch sizes. The G65B is a curved monitor (1000R) that supports 1440p at 240Hz and has the same 1ms GtG reaction times in 27- and 32-inch sizes. Samsung doesn’t specify whether the G65B is an IPS, VA, or TN panel, but given the company’s track record with curved panels of this size, VA is probably the case.
All four of these models have Samsung’s Gaming Hub for easy access to game streaming companies, but there is also a new Game Bar feature that allows PC players to examine gaming settings and quickly change response rates, screen ratios, and game modes.
The Odyssey G70B and G65B have not yet received detailed specifications, release dates, or prices from Samsung. According to Samsung, these new devices “will be available internationally starting Q4.”
