The Consumer Electronics Show is when gaming monitor makers pull out the heavy guns. In this 2023 edition that opens this week, Samsung hasn’t skimped on size and performance with the new Odyssey Neo G9, a 57-inch monster with a curved DisplayHDR 1000 panel that displays 7680 x 2160 pixels at a 240Hz refresh rate. We’re not quite at 8K resolution given the 32:9 aspect ratio. Compatible with DisplayPort 2.1, the Neo G9 will initially struggle to find a graphics card that can make the most of its capabilities. Only Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 (non-DP2.1 compliant) and AMD RX 7900 XTX (DP2.1 compliant) could do the job, but still with limitations. Odyssey Neo G9 will be released later this year. Its price has not yet been announced.

Another gaming flagship from Samsung is the 49-inch Odyssey Oled G9 (G95SC) with a resolution of 5120×1440 pixels at 240Hz, DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified and an integrated Samsung Gaming Hub for video game streaming. For connectivity, there’s a mini DisplayPort in addition to HDMI and USB-C with a 65W power supply. Its price and release date are still unknown.
This is not the first Oled monitor with quantum dots. Samsung announced at IFA a 34-inch G8 model that was supposed to be released in late 2022 but was pushed back to “very soon”.
On the other hand, the Odyssey Neo G7 is a 43-inch 144Hz Quantum Dot DisplayHDR 600 monitor with built-in stereo speakers, a remote control, and all the streaming and gaming apps that Samsung hubs have. Its release is scheduled for the end of March.
