      Gamers discovered new devices and highly awaited titles at Summer Game Fest — a global celebration of video games and their creators that started on June 7 at YouTube Theater in Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. Here, Samsung showcased its 2024 lineup of monitors including the newest OLED gaming monitor series.
       
      ▲ Summer Game Fest highlighted the latest in gaming technology and unveiled upcoming releases to gamers around the world.
       
      Fans of all things gaming around the world tuned into the opening livestream, while 6,000 attendees gathered in person to see exciting announcements and demos from the biggest brands. During the opening livestream, attendees experienced new Samsung monitors — including the latest Odyssey OLED G8 — now available for preorder.
       

       
      ▲ Samsung proudly announced the Odyssey OLED G8 during the Summer Game Fest livestream. OLED Glare Free technology significantly reduces glare from light or reflections.
       
      At the Samsung x YouTube Gaming Afterparty, well-known game creators and industry insiders had a chance to preview the best gaming devices on the market. With the new Odyssey OLED series, attendees were the first to play new titles, such as “Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2” from Focus, before their release.
       
      “You need a high refresh rate for games as fast as the new Warhammer one that we get to play here,” said a gamer at the Afterparty. “The Odyssey OLED G6’s 360Hz refresh rate makes the action super smooth, so you can easily aim and see enemy movement without any annoying blur.”
       
      ▲ Attendees were the first in the world to play “Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2” on the Odyssey OLED G8.
       
      This year’s Odyssey OLED series includes the 32-inch Odyssey OLED G8 in 4K UHD with a 240Hz refresh rate and the 27-inch OLED G6 in QHD with a 360Hz refresh rate. Both deliver outstanding OLED picture quality with a near-instant 0.03-millisecond gray-to-gray response time for ultra-smooth, responsive gameplay.
       
      The Odyssey series’ latest features are especially geared toward creating an optimal gaming environment. The new OLED Glare Free technology minimizes light reflection and delivers vivid, clear colors so gamers can enjoy crisp, clean picture quality. In addition, both OLED models feature Samsung OLED Safeguard+ — a proprietary burn-in protection technology that combines a pulsating heat pipe with a dynamic cooling system to help prevent burn-in by reducing temperatures at the core.

      YouTuber SugarStar was one of the gaming personalities who experienced the new monitors. “Graphics look fantastic on these monitors. The colors seem so vibrant and true to life, even without putting the brightness all the way up like you do on other monitors. All of the games here look great,” she said. “I also use an Odyssey monitor at home, and I love that I don’t need a PC connected to play. It made it easy to keep playing (console) games with Samsung Gaming Hub before my PC was built.”
       
      ▲ SugarStar played “Kingdom Hearts” on the ViewFinity S7, a monitor that balances productivity and gaming performance.
       
      The new Odyssey OLED gaming monitors showcased at Summer Game Fest include HDR10+ GAMING capabilities on select games like “Cyberpunk 2077” and “Red Dead Redemption 2.” Players will automatically experience deeper color, contrast and brightness — without lengthy, manual calibration.
       
      “If it ain’t like this, I don’t want it,” said YouTuber HipHopGamer, a popular gaming personality. “When you can move your mouse this fast, without blurring or stuttering, that’s what refresh rate is all about. It’s happening here on the Odyssey OLED G8, with one of the biggest games ever made, ‘Red Dead Redemption 2.’ There’s no stutter. There’s no blur.”1
       
      Unlocking a premium visual experience, HDR10+ GAMING automatically adjusts the high-dynamic range (HDR) and the default HDR brightness of any game based on the specific capabilities of the monitor. By precisely calibrating color, contrast and brightness to each individual display, details are accurate even in dark shadows and bright highlights for more engaging gameplay.
       
      Game developer Przemyslaw Czatrowski of CD Projekt Red, the company that brought the world “Cyberpunk 2077,” had only good things to say about HDR10+ Gaming. “Now, ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ with HDR looks just how I imagined it to be, ramping up the immersion,” he said.
       
      ▲ HipHopGamer played one of the biggest games of all time, “Red Dead Redemption 2,” with HDR10+ GAMING technology on the Odyssey OLED G8.
       
      ▲ “Cyberpunk 2077” impressed gamers with HDR10+ GAMING technology on the Odyssey OLED G9.
       
      Guests also responded enthusiastically to the Smart Monitor M8 and ViewFinity S7 monitors which balance productivity with gaming and everyday use.

      Gaming continues to grow in new and exciting ways, and Summer Game Fest proved to be one of the industry’s standout events. This year, Samsung again proved its commitment to new and seasoned gamers through its future-defining monitors and innovative features.
       
      Samsung’s participation in Summer Game Fest highlights its longstanding partnership with Hollywood Park, where Samsung technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the 300-acre mixed-use campus. During the event, attendees witnessed how a suite of Samsung digital signage at YouTube Theater creates the ultimate live experience. Game reveals and showcases were visible on two 26-by-14-foot Samsung LED Smart Signage displays installed on both sides of the 6,100-square-foot stage, fully immersing attendees in gameplay previews and building excitement for upcoming releases.

      Gaming monitors are one of the most powerful tools for esports players, especially when it comes to notching up the gaming experience through wider viewing angles and faster refresh rates.
       
      This year marks the third anniversary of the partnership between Samsung Electronics and T1, a South Korean esports team with a series of championship wins under its belt. Since 2020, Samsung has been providing T1 with Odyssey gaming monitors to showcase the company’s cutting-edge technology to gamers and audiences alike.
       
      ▲ The Odyssey Neo G9 57” (G95NC) and T1 team (from left: ‘Keria’, ‘Gumayusi’, ‘Faker’, ‘Oner,’ and ‘Zeus’)
       
      To celebrate the release of the 2023 gaming monitor lineup, Samsung unveiled a series of three brand videos featuring the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9, the 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC) and the upgraded 55-inch Odyssey Ark (G97NC). These films were produced by renowned South Korean director Yunsung Kang — most known for “The Outlaws” (2017), “Long Live the King” (2019) and “Big Bet” (2022). In a modern-meets-medieval battle adventure, viewers can follow the T1 team and watch how Samsung gaming monitors play a shocking twist. Samsung Newsroom sat down with Director Yunsung Kang and T1 members ‘Keria’, ‘Gumayusi’, ‘Faker’, ‘Oner’ and ‘Zeus’ to learn more about their behind-the-scenes experience.
       
      ▲ ‘Faker’ experiences the Odyssey Neo G9 57”.
       
       
      Q. What are your thoughts on the new Odyssey models?
       
      ‘Faker’: The Odyssey monitors just keep getting better. The new 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 is truly impressive with its massive screen that commands attention. I didn’t realize its size from a distance, but I fully grasped its scale when I got closer. The Odyssey Neo G9 is the ideal choice for those who prefer a larger monitor.
       
      ‘Oner’: The Odyssey OLED G9 is so large that it almost resembles a TV, rather than a typical monitor. This could also be useful when watching videos.
       
      ‘Zeus’: All of the monitors boast huge dimensions. The ultra-wide screen helps me play League of Legends strategically, offering a wide view of the map and an incredibly immersive gaming experience.

      ▲ (From left) ‘Gumayusi’ and ‘Keria’ from T1 try out Multi View on the 2023 Odyssey Ark.
       
       
      Q. As a gamer, what is your top priority when choosing a monitor?
       
      ‘Faker’: Most gamers value response time and refresh rate. I prefer a monitor with a fast response time to minimize ghosting.
       
      ‘Oner’: Refresh rate is the most important factor for me. I always check whether a monitor supports a 240Hz refresh rate.
       
      ‘Keria’: Although I use a monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate, monitors with 144Hz or higher refresh rates are sufficient for most users.
       
      ‘Gumayusi’: Unlike some gamers, I’m not very sensitive to monitor specifications. However, since I’m used to high refresh rates, switching to low-quality specs could hinder my skills. I want to focus solely on the game itself.
       
      ‘Zeus’: I agree with ‘Oner’ — refresh rate is crucial for me too. I used to have a monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate, but the gaming experience was so much smoother once I switched to one with a higher refresh rate. I can’t imagine going back to a low-refresh rate monitor now.
       
      Yoonsung Kang, the director behind the 2021 Odyssey Neo G9 brand film, has returned to work on the 2023 Odyssey brand films.
       
      ▲ Yoonsung Kang has directed many Odyssey brand films.
       
       
      Q. What was your main objective when planning this Odyssey brand film?
       
      Yoonsung Kang: My top priority for this project was to focus on the monitors’ immense size. As such, I planned a concept around a large-scale medieval battle to effectively showcase the Odyssey’s advantages.
       
       
      Q. Can you share some of the highlights from this brand film?
       
      Kang: One of the standout moments in these videos is the unexpected plot twist. The story follows the T1 team changing the course of a battle — then, a twist unfolds. Just when the members believe they won the battle, ‘Faker’ expands the screen to reveal more enemies approaching from both sides. It’s a plot twist that’s bound to captivate viewers.

      ▲ The T1 members learn choreography during filming.
       
       
      Q. What was it like to step away from your usual game matches and daily training to participate in this brand film?
       
      ‘Oner’, ‘Zeus’ and ‘Keria’: We were truly impressed that the choreography incorporated our signature poses. While we were worried at first — we’re not dancers — the choreographer’s detailed directions helped us finish the project successfully. I hope our fans enjoy the videos.
       
      ‘Faker’: All in all, it was a new and refreshing experience. I’ve been on TV shows with numerous cameras before, but this was my first time dancing. I felt a bit awkward yet excited at the same time.
       
      ▲ The Odyssey Neo G9 57” and T1 members (from left: ‘Keria’, ‘Gumayusi’, ‘Faker’, ‘Oner’ and ‘Zeus’)
       
       
      Q. Out of the Odyssey monitors you’ve had the chance to try out, which one is your favorite?
       
      ‘Faker’: My favorite is the 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9. I like its fast response time and sleek metal design on the back.
       
      ‘Zeus’: The 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9 is my top pick as well. The Infinity Core lighting displays mesmerizing rainbow colors, and the metal design gives the monitor a chic vibe.
       
      ‘Keria’: For me, the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 is the most appealing — the white and glossy back cover feels luxurious.
       
      ‘Gumayusi’: I’ve already used the Odyssey Ark at T1 HQ’s lounge and enjoyed the Multi View feature since I like to play multiple games simultaneously. Because I prefer large screens, my top choice is the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9.
       
      ‘Oner’: It’s honestly difficult to pick just one. The new Odyssey models are amazing with their large screens and wide displays. I like them all.
       
      Watch the T1 team in action and experience the latest lineup of Odyssey gaming monitors in the brand film below.
