Samsung is kicking off its CES 2023 announcements a bit early today with the reveal of several new PC monitors. The biggest new entry is the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 gaming PC monitor. This huge 1000R curved 57-inch display has an 8K 7,680×2,160 resolution screen with a 32:9 aspect ratio. That means owners will get the equivalent of two UHD screens on one display. By contrast, the Samsung Odyssey Ark monitor that launched in 2022 was “only” 55 inches and “only” had 4K resolution support.
The min-LED screen on the Odyssey Neo G9 will also have a Matte Display to reduce annoying light reflections while playing your favorite PC or console games. It will also have a 240Hz refresh rate for a smoother look for games that support that high rate. Finally, the monitor will have DisplayPort 2.1 support, which transfers data twice as fast compared to the older DisplayPort 2.1 tech.
Samsung also announced the 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9. The 1800R curved OLED display supports quantum dot technology to allow for better contrast and deeper blacks on the screen and also has a 32:9 aspect ratio and a 240Hz refresh rate. The monitor will also come with the Samsung Game Hub that supports various game streaming services, along with its series of apps like Netflix, Prime Video, and more that are included in Samsung smart TVs.
Finally, Samsung revealed two new 27-inch monitors. The ViewFinity S9 is designed for creative professionals with a 5K 5,120 x 2,880 resolution display with a matte finish. The previously released 32-inch Smart Monitor M8 will soon be available in a 27-inch version with four color choices (Daylight Blue, Spring Green, Sunset Pink, or Warm White). It will also support Samsung’s smart TV apps and Samsung Gaming Hub.
Release dates for these monitors have not been revealed, nor have their prices. Considering the Samsung Odyssey Ark was priced at $3,500 when it launched, we suspect the Odyssey Neo G9 will have a similar price tag.
