What sets the G6 apart is its remarkable 360Hz refresh rate, making it an ideal choice for competitive gaming where every millisecond matters.
The 0.03ms GTG response time, VESA DisplayHDR TrueBlack 400, and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support ensure that the G6 delivers exceptional visual clarity and smooth gameplay. Like its counterparts, the G6 incorporates Samsung’s Smart TV and Gaming Hub functionalities. Connectivity options for the G6 include 2 HDMI 2.1 ports, 1 DP 1.4 port, and 1 USB-Hub.
