Samsung has unveiled new products that specifically address the growing gaming sector. The announcement comes ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 in Las Vegas.
The annual CES conference showcases companies including manufacturers, developers, and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, and technology delivery systems. The two major CES announcements by Samsung revolved around their new “Gaming Hub” and a new state-of-the-art gaming monitor.

Samsung announced several new models in its monitor lineup. One of the new monitors, the Odyssey Neo G8, highlights Samsung’s intention to be among the leaders within the gaming sector. The versatile new lineup delivers excellent picture quality and intuitive features. These new additions will give gamers more choices when selecting a monitor that fits their exact needs.
Odyssey Neo G8
As the world’s first monitor to feature a 4K (3,840×2,160) 1000R curved screen with 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time (GtG), Odyssey Neo G8 32” (Model Name: G85NB) is set to open a new chapter in gaming monitor innovation, offering razor-sharp performance for even the most dedicated PC gamers. Its performance matches its stunning picture quality featuring Quantum Mini LEDs, Quantum HDR 2000 with a 2,000nit peak brightness, and a million-to-one static contrast ratio.
Samsung Gaming Hub and NFT Platform
In addition to the new monitors, Samsung also unveiled its strategy for developing a focused gaming center within its ecosystem.
“Our Samsung Smart TVs provide the ultimate entertainment destination for everyone across generations, interests, and viewing preferences,” said Won-Jin Lee, Corporate President at Samsung Electronics. “We know that gaming continues to increase in popularity for our customers and we have bridged the gap between our Smart TV leadership and advanced gaming software to create an easier way for people to enjoy the games they love, faster. We developed the Samsung Gaming Hub with our incredible content partners to benefit all gamers, and we plan to continue our collaboration to grow the ecosystem.”
The Samsung Gaming Hub will empower players to discover and jump into the games they love faster through game streaming services. Players will have access to an extensive library of games through Samsung’s partnerships with industry leaders – NVIDIA GeForce Now, Stadia and Utomik.
“We are excited to kickstart Utomik’s venture into cloud gaming with a great partnership with Samsung,” said Doki Tops, CEO and founder of Utomik. “It starts Utomik’s journey into hybrid gaming, allowing gamers to play games on any device and transition seamlessly to other devices, using both our smart download technology or cloud gaming technology depending on device and context.”
In addition to addressing the needs of gamers, Samsung has introduced an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) Platform on its Hub. This application features an intuitive, integrated platform for discovering, purchasing, and trading digital artwork through MICRO LED, Neo QLED, and The Frame. You can browse and preview an NFT prior to purchase, including analyzing blockchain metadata. The TV can also automatically display settings according to the creator’s specifications.
