Samsung’s first Odyssey Monitors with Gaming Hub

Samsung is introducing four new gaming monitors at Gamescom today, and they’re the first Odyssey models to have Samsung’s Gaming Hub built-in.

This gaming hub provides quick and easy access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, and Nvidia GeForce Now game streaming services.

The Samsung Odyssey G70B and G65B are both designed primarily for PC gaming, with the G70B available in both 27- and 32-inch flat IPS options with 4K support at 144Hz and 1ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response times.

The G65B is a curved monitor (1000R) with the exact 1ms GtG response times, and it’s available in 27- and 32-inch sizes with 1440p support at 240Hz. Unfortunately, Samsung doesn’t mention whether the G65B is IPS, VA, or TN, but given its history with curved panels of these sizes, it’s likely VA.

Samsung’s Gaming Hub is built directly into all four models to access game streaming services quickly. Still, a new Game Bar tool lets PC gamers view gaming settings and modify response times, screen ratios, and game modes easily.

Samsung’s new gaming monitors include easy access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, Stadia, and more. Thanks to Samsung’s Smart Platform integration, you can even use these monitors without a PC. Samsung lets G70B and G65B owners wirelessly connect to PCs or Macs, mirror an iPhone or iPad screen using Apple AirPlay 2, or even use Samsung DeX — one of the closest things we have to use our phones as PCs.

Netflix and Amazon Prime apps can also run straight on the monitors if you want to switch off gaming or work. Samsung hasn’t released full specs, dates, or pricing for the Odyssey G70B and G65B. However, these new models “will be available globally from Q4,” says Samsung.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a South Korean global electronics corporation, is headquartered in Yeongtong-gu, Suwon, South Korea. It is the height of the Samsung chaebol, accounting for 70% of the group’s revenue in 2012. Due to circular ownership, Samsung Electronics played a vital role in the group’s corporate governance.

Samsung is a major manufacturer of electronic elements like semiconductors, image sensors, lithium-ion batteries, camera modules, and displays for customers like Sony, HTC, Apple, and Nokia. In addition, it is the world’s most extensive manufacturer of mobile phones and smartphones, commencing with the original Samsung Solstice and, later, the favor of its Samsung Galaxy line of devices.

Samsung has been the world’s biggest television manufacturer since 2006 and the world’s biggest manufacturer of mobile phones since 2011 when it exceeded Apple up until 2021. It is also the world’s most considerable memory chip manufacturer and, from 2017 to 2018, had been the largest semiconductor company, briefly dethroning Intel, the decades-long champ.

In 2012, Kwon Oh-Hyun was established as the company’s CEO. However, he announced in October 2017 that he would resign in March 2018, noting an “unprecedented crisis.” The business had 3 CEOs from March 2018 until December 2021, when the business units were reorganized and replaced by Kyung Kye-Hyun and Han Jong-hee. It has also had a distinct regional CEO, HC Hong, who led the company in Southwest Asia from 2015 and then shifted to Latin America in 2020.

Samsung Electric Industries was founded as an industrial part of Samsung Group on January 19th, 1969, in Suwon, South Korea. At the time, Samsung Group was named to the South Korean public as a trading company specializing in fertilizers and sweeteners. Despite the shortage of technology and resources falling shorter than the domestic competitors, Samsung Group enhanced its footing in the manufacturing enterprise by cooperating with Japanese companies.

A decision instigated a significant amount of anti-Japanese public outcry and massive backlash from the competitors fearing the outright compliance of the industry by the Japanese. The strategy took off only after the government and Samsung announced that the company would exclusively concentrate on exports.

Toshio Iue, the originator of Sanyo, played a role as an advisor to Lee Byung-Chul, Samsung’s founder, who was a rookie in the electronics business.

The same year, Samsung Electric designated a joint venture named Samsung-Sanyo Electric with Sanyo and Sumitomo Corporation. It is the direct predecessor of today’s Samsung Electronics.

The joint venture’s early derivatives were electronic and electrical appliances, including refrigerators, air conditioners, televisions, calculators, and washing machines. In 1970, Samsung launched the joint venture Samsung-NEC with Japan’s NEC Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation to fabricate home appliances and audiovisual devices.

Samsung-NEC later became Samsung SDI, the company’s display and battery business unit. In 1973, Samsung and Sanyo assembled Samsung-Sanyo Parts, the predecessor of Samsung Electro-Mechanics. Samsung Electric had fabricated over 10 million black-and-white televisions.

In 1974, Samsung Group developed into the semiconductor business by earning Korea Semiconductor, which was on the brink of bankruptcy while making one of the first chip-making structures in the nation at the time. Korea Telecommunications is an electronic switching system producer and a Samsung Group company, carried over the semiconductor business and evolved into Samsung Semiconductor & Communications.

In February 1983, Lee, along with the committee of the Samsung industry and corporation agreement and aid by sponsoring the event, made an announcement later anointed the “Tokyo declaration,” in which he declared that Samsung intended to evolve a dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) vendor.

Furthermore, Samsung successfully created a 64 kb DRAM, reducing the technological gap between companies from first-world countries and the young electronics maker from more than a decade to approximately four years.

In the process, Samsung used technologies imported from Micron Technology of the U.S for the development of DRAM and Sharp Corporation of Japan for its SRAM and ROM. In 1988, Samsung Electric Industries merged with Samsung Semiconductor & Communications to form Samsung Electronic. Before that, they had not been one business or a top corporation together, but they were not rivals, as they had been in discussions for a time until they finally merged.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, Samsung sold personal computers under the Leading Technology brand. However, the equipment was manufactured by Samsung, and the FCC filings from this period typically refer to Samsung products.
