Samsung today just launched its new Odyssey OLED G9 monitor, only to see Amazon markdown the monitor’s predecessor. The Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 normally sells for $1,500, but is now resting at $1,099.99 shipped. This $400 price cut is delivering a new all-time low, as well as one of the first overall chances to save since beginning to ship back in February. While it’s not quite as massive as the new G9 version that’s now up for pre-order, the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 still brings some notable specs to your battlestation. Everything starts with a 34-inch OLED panel that is the first one Samsung has used in one of its gaming monitors, sporting an 1800R curvature with 21:9 aspect ratio. There’s a 175Hz refresh rate to complement the 0.03ms response times and AMD FreeSync Pro for good measure. As far as connecting in your gear, there are Micro HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort connections as well as onboard smart features and Samsung’s Gaming Hub. We further cover what to expect in our launch coverage from earlier in the year, too.
