Samsung releases Odyssey G6 gaming monitor with Smart TV in Australia


Samsung Electronics has announced the Samsung Odyssey G6 gaming monitor is coming to Australia, its first 27" and 32" gaming monitor that combines fast refresh rates and sharp QHD resolution with Smart TV features.

The Odyssey G6 (model G65B) is currently available via select retail stores, online gaming resellers, and the Samsung Online Store at a recommended retail price of $949 for the 27" model and $1099 for the 32" model.

Samsung has identified entertainment and gaming are the two most common uses for monitors outside of work and has fused the two together in one unit, which easily transforms from gaming to TV, giving gamers direct access to their favourite streaming services without any compromise on their gaming performance.

“As seen at CES, our 2023 Odyssey Gaming Monitor range focuses on delivering exceptional speed and image quality with a range of innovative features that now means you can game, work and watch from an all-in-one Monitor display,” said Samsung Australia senior director of display and brand memory Phil Gaut. “In combining game-winning features with Smart TV options, the Odyssey G6 is a one-stop gaming monitor that personalises home entertainment experiences without compromising on the gaming performance that Odyssey is known for.” 

The Odyssey G6 boasts an ultra-smooth 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time (GtG), and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, reducing screen tearing and input latency, providing a nearly flawless gaming experience and an ultra-reactive competitive edge. With its QHD resolution packing 1.7 times the pixel density of FHD paired with DisplayHDR600, the Odyssey G6 makes gaming worlds appear almost life-like via bright colours and deep contrast images. Vivid scenes wrap even more tightly around gamers via the 1000R curved display that helps to fill peripheral vision and draws gamers into their virtual avatar’s shoes.

The Odyssey G6 features Game Bar, enabling players to easily check and control game settings such as FPS or HDR, modify response time or screen ratio, as well as the game picture mode without interrupting play. To provide a competitive edge, screen ratios can extend from 16.9 to an ultra-wide 21.9 game view, providing more content to bring gamers closer to the top of the leaderboard.

What's more, the Odyssey G6 brings Samsung's Smart TV Hub to the 27" and 32" gaming monitor form factor for the first time. Users can wirelessly connect to a Windows or Mac PC, use Samsung DeX or AirPlay 2 to mirror their screen use or access Microsoft 365 cloud services for work productivity. Furthermore, the Odyssey G6 is equipped with a high-sensitivity Far Field Voice microphone, allowing gamers to control the device with voice assistants such as Bixby. The Always On Voice function allows users to interact with Bixby even when the monitor is turned off while displaying conversation-related information on the monitor’s screen.

For comfort and convenience, the Odyssey G6 features a VESA-standard ergonomic stand that can swivel, tilt and adjust to the optimum height for gaming or content consumption.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
