The G9 pursues an innovative and futuristic design with a glossy white exterior.

It houses Infinity Core Lighting, which allows 52 different colours and five lighting effect options behind the display.

The Odyssey G9 is also the first monitor certified to support HRD10+, enabling it to deliver games and content in groundbreaking quality through a combination of Quantum dot technology and an HDR1000 panel.
