For the most part, the new Odyssey G9 will retain most of the features from the 2020 model. This includes the ultrawide 5120 x 1440 (DQHD) resolution, spread out on its massive 49-inch display, as well as its ultra-high 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG response rate. Oh, and the curvature of the monitor is still rated at 1000R, and it still retains its NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility too.
What is expected to be different, though, is that the display panel is no longer your typical VA; instead, the 2021 Odyssey G9’s panel will reportedly be using Samsung’s 10-bit Quantum Mini LED technology. That in turn, will allow for the gaming monitor to have a higher peak brightness of 2000 nits, but more importantly, it also gets a much better VESA DisplayHDR 2000 certification.
