Samsung has recently unveiled the global availability of the Odyssey Neo G9 57″ monitor at Gamescom 2023, a product that the company calls a game-changer for immersive gaming. Touted as the “World’s First Dual UHD Monitor” by the company, it won a CES 2023 Best of Innovation Award when it was announced in January.
Thanks to the 1000R curvature, equivalent to the width of two 32″ UHD monitors, the 32:9 screen wraps users in sharp visuals and an expansive field of view. The Odyssey Neo G9 features Quantum Matrix Technology powering Quantum Mini LED lighting, offering users discrete dimming zones for enhanced contrast. DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity is present for optimized gaming and improved video playback experience, while the 1000-nit peak brightness brings HDR content to life with accurate colors and contrasts.
The monitor’s 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time minimize motion blur, promising to deliver a smooth viewing experience. The AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology provides stability, and Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes offer multitasking ease and, last but not least, the Auto Source Switch+ feature enables instant connectivity to new devices.
According to Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD:
“By bringing DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity to their premium gaming monitor, Samsung is opening new doors for gamers. More bandwidth, higher speeds, and faster refresh rates provide new levels of performance and visual fidelity in games, and together the new Samsung displays and Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards will deliver the most vivid and immersive gaming experiences yet.”
Accompanying the Neo G9 release, the South Korean brand will also showcase an upgraded version of the curved monitor Odyssey Ark, featuring Samsung Multi View and KVM switch features.
Price and availability
The Odyssey Neo G9 57-inch will be available for $2,499.99 in October on samsung.com and select U.S. retailers.
The product is launching ahead of IFA 2023, and we hope to see the Odyssey Neo G9 57 next week at IFA in Berlin at the Samsung Press conference on Aug. 31st at City Cube. The company has not yet confirmed which new products they will exhibit there.
We know that Samsung usually comes to IFA with its full video game monitor lineup, including the Odyssey Series. Keep in mind that products launched in North America can sometimes be slightly different from products dedicated to the European market.
