Samsung has announced its flagship Odyssey Neo G9 57″ monitor at Gamescom 2023. This new curved gaming monitor features a massive 57-inch ultra-wide panel equivalent to having two 4K displays.
The Odyssey Neo G9 57″ or G95NC has a VA-type LCD panel with a resolution of 7680 x 2160 and a 1000R curvature. This 32:9 aspect ratio display is equivalent to having two 16:9 3840 x 2160 panels side by side. The 57-inch size is a factor of the ultra-wide aspect ratio and obviously not comparable with displays with other aspect ratios.
What’s most interesting is that the monitor supports this massive resolution with an equally incredible 240Hz refresh rate. That is roughly four billion pixels being refreshed every second. To power this insane resolution and refresh rate combination, the G95NC comes with a combination of DisplayPort 2.1 and HDMI 2.1. Samsung doesn’t specify the exact bandwidth of these connectors but it doesn’t really matter as there isn’t a connector out yet that natively supports that much data transfer (over 100Gbps) without Display Stream Compression, which the monitor does support.
While the G95NC does not have a more modern OLED panel, it does feature Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology with mini-LED backlighting, 2392 local dimming zones, and VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification. The panel is also rated at a minimum 1ms response time (GTG) and has a matte coating.
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ will be available in the US starting October for $2500.
