Samsung will kick off CES 2023 early with the debut of two new monitors for the gaming crowd: the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 and the 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9. Both monitors are sure to rock gamers’ tongues, but the former is a bang when it comes to specs.
The huge 57-inch panel features dual UHD resolutions. So it’s like having two of his 4K monitors side by side. Combined with the 1000R curve, the latest Odyssey Neo G9 offers a resolution of 7680 x 2160 with an aspect ratio of 32:9.
That dizzying resolution sounds appealing, but to enjoy gaming at 7680 x 2160, you need something like Nvidia’s flagship GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. display stream compression) and supports refresh rates up to 240Hz.
The panel features mini LED backlight technology that helps boost the native contrast ratio (1,000,000:1) and improve dynamic range. Additionally, it incorporates a matte finish to reduce the reflections that are annoying on such a large monitor.
If the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 is too big for your desk, Samsung also announced the Odyssey OLED G9. If you recall, Samsung announced the Odyssey OLED G8 at his IFA 2022. That monitor features a 34-inch (3440 x 1440) 1800R panel with a 175Hz refresh rate, 0.1ms response time, and VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification.
The Odyssey OLED G9 maintains 1800R curvature and VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black status while pushing the panel size to 49 inches. However, the display resolution jumps to 5120 x 1440 for the Quantum Dot-OLED panel, which boasts a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.
Maximum refresh rate increased from 175Hz to 240Hz. Finally, Samsung powers the Odyssey OLED G9 with the Samsung Gaming Hub, which provides in-monitor streaming access to cloud services like Nvidia GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming without connecting directly to your PC or game console.
Unfortunately, Samsung doesn’t provide pricing or availability for the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 (G95NC) and 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC). However, we have a feeling they’ll both rise to the top of our best gaming monitor list.
