Dual UHD Gaming Monitor Odyssey Neo G9 57
The Odyssey Neo G9 57” (G95NC) is designed to deliver groundbreaking visual experiences for gamers looking to enhance performance and sharpen their competitive edge. With the world’s first Dual UHD Gaming monitor (Ultra-High-Definition (DUHD)) screen and a suite of high-speed connectivity options, the Odyssey Neo G9 57” earned a Best of Innovation Award at CES 2023.
The 1000R curvature in the 57” 32:9 screen is as wide as two 32” UHD monitors, wrapping around users with pin-sharp images and a wide field of view, immersing them into their games like never before.
Quantum Matrix Technology powers Samsung’s Quantum Mini LED lighting in the screen, which offers smaller, more discrete dimming zones. The result is a better distinction between light and dark areas of the screen, with sharp contrast and less blooming.
The Dual UHD Gaming Monitor Odyssey Neo G9 57” makes the most out of its Quantum Mini LED lighting by combining it with VESA Display HDR™1000. With 1,000 nit peak brightness, HDR content appears vivid and life-like, with accurate color and contrast reproduction, as well as enhanced color expression and depth.
The gaming performance matches the level of visual quality to help gamers meet their full potential. 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time (The actual response time may vary by content and monitor settings) deliver less blur and minimized ghosting, allowing gamers to react instantly and seal their victory with a smooth viewing experience and exhilarating gameplay. Plus, AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro syncs the screen for a stable, stutter-free picture.
The Odyssey Neo G9 57” offers VESA-certified DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity, which supports smooth gaming, efficient video playback and the Neo G9’s DUHD resolution with a refresh rate up to 240Hz (DUHD 240Hz is supported only with graphics cards that support Display Port 2.1 (UHBR 13.5) or HDMI 2.1 (FRL 6). Support and actual refresh rate may vary by graphics card) . In addition to the DP2.1, the Odyssey Neo G9 57” also offers HDMI 2.1 and a USB hub, so gamers can hook up all their devices and elevate their game with less mess.
“By bringing DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity to their premium gaming monitor, Samsung is opening new doors for gamers,” said Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “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.”
With such a wide, high-definition screen and a generation-defining new input, gamers can use the Odyssey Neo G9 57” in place of multiple monitors, keeping their desk clean from clutter, while creating a comfortable multitasking single-screen environment. Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture mode offer multiple inputs at one look, and the monitor use Auto Source Switch+ to instantly connect to new devices without flipping through input sources. An ergonomic stand, Core Lighting+ and CoreSync make the monitor fit in any environment and match the mood of the game with ambient lighting.
In August and September, the Samsung Odyssey Twitch channel is also celebrating the launch of the Odyssey Neo G9 57” with a special event, Odyssey Evolves. Some of the biggest streamers will be playing the hottest games and giving away prizes for channel followers – including a $10,000 gaming setup that includes the Odyssey Neo G9.
