Samsung’s New Odyssey Neo G9 Monitor is 57 Inches of Gaming Insanity

Samsung is all ready to shake up the ultra-wide display segment with its newly refreshed Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor, which the company claims as the world’s first single monitor with dual ultra-high definition resolution. After teasing the world’s first 8K ultrawide gaming monitor in November, the South Korean giant has finally spilled some beans and revealed a whole new iteration of the Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor at 2023’s CES trade show ahead of its official release.

The Odyssey Neo G9 (G95NC) comes fitted with DisplayPort 2.1 and is capable of running natively at 8K in a 32:9 aspect ratio. The screen size has also been upgraded from 49 to a whopping 57 inches and the monitor has a Dual UHD resolution. This means that the latest Odyssey Neo G9 offers the same amount of pixels as two 4K monitors sitting side-by-side. The gaming monitor boasts quantum mini-LED technology with 1000R curvature and VESA Display HDR 1000 specification “to deliver superior imaging in any gaming environment, from shadows to bright scenes.”

The Odyssey Neo G9 is capable of outputting 7,680×2,160 resolution and uses Matte Display to reduce light reflection on the screen. It also supports a refresh rate of up to 240Hz. However, to clock in such high resolutions/refresh rates, you will require a top-end graphics card, which will cost more money.

Furthermore, the latest NVIDIA GPUs such as the GeForce RTX 4090 only have support for DisplayPort 1.4a and not DisplayPort 2.1, meaning 8K and 240 Hz gaming will remain exclusive to AMD graphics cards for the time being. The newest series of Odyssey Neo G9 is the world’s first gaming monitor to have DisplayPort 2.1 and Samsung says it “transfers data approximately twice as fast as the previously used DisplayPort 1.4.”

Moreover, DisplayPort 2.1 allows lossless industry-standard Display Stream Compression (DSC) to transfer data without distortion. While announcing the new Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitors, Hoon Chung, executive vice president of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said, “We are introducing the future of gaming monitors with our Odyssey Neo G9, making each game more lifelike with innovative features and picture quality on a new scale. CES is the perfect place to showcase our innovations that can take not only gamers but also graphic designers or TV fans to the next level while providing personalised experiences across a range of integrated smart apps.”
