CES 2023: Samsung’s new INSANE gaming monitors!

Most years at CES we see the latest displays from Samsung and sometimes new storage devices. This year was not much different, and two of their new monitors really stood out: the Odyssey Neo G9 57″ and the Odyssey OLED G9 49″.

To say that the Odyssey Neo G9 is impressive would be putting it lightly. This is the world’s first 57-inch 8K Ultrawide monitor with a stunning 7680 x 2160 resolution. All that screen real estate would be great on its own, but this is a gaming monitor, so it also comes with a 240Hz refresh rate. To support this sort of visual, Samsung has equipped this monitor with DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity, so you’ll need to make sure you have a GPU capable of pumping out content to those specs – think RX 7900 cards, which are the only ones that support DP 2.1 at the moment.

To further enhance the immersiveness of the Odyssey Neo G9 57″, the screen is curved with a 1000R bend, quite tight compared to something with an 1800R bend. That said, our demo time on the monitor was via a driving simulator, and being able to look from side to side to get a better look at your surroundings was a nice feature.

Another world first is the Odyssey OLED G9 49″, a 49″ curved OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 32:9. The 5120 x 1440 resolution is again combined with a 240Hz refresh rate, 0.1ms response time and Samsung’s Quantum Dot OLED technology. Sitting down to play some Fortnite on the show floor was a great experience, and I would have loved to continue collecting the kills (I was down to 5 before we got to move on) on the awesome looking screen. The screen’s 1800R curve was much less noticeable than the 1000R on the Odyssey Neo G9 59″, which was more to my liking.

No price or availability was available for either monitor, but as soon as we have updates, rest assured we’ll share them.
