Samsung teases its "ground-breaking" Odyssey Neo G9 Super-wide Gaming Monitor

Samsung has a new Odyssey G9 monitor on the horizon, boasting insane hardware specifications and an HDR implementation that promises to deliver insane contrast levels. 

With a screen size of 49 inches and a resolution of 5,120x1440, this curved screen is equivalent to two 27-inch 1440p monitors sitting side-by-side. This monitor will support refresh rates of up to 240Hz on its VA panel, utilise Samsung's Quantum Dot technology in conjunction with a Quantum Matrix backlight to deliver peak brightness levels as high as 2,000 nits and a total of 2,048 local dimming zones across the screen. 

When compared with Samsung's existing G9 Odyssey monitor, its Neo counterpart breaks new ground with its HDR support, offering users deeper contrast levels thanks to its Quantum Mini LED backlight and higher peak brightnesses. When combined with this screen's 10-bit colour depth and 240Hz native refresh rate and this monitor is ideal for ultra-wide, high refresh rate HDR gaming. 

Powering Samsung's Odyssey G9 Neo monitor is dual DisplayPort 1.4 connections and an HDMI 2.1 input, giving users the ability to connect a range of devices to this huge HDR monitor. 




Which support for high-end HDR features and a staggering 240Hz refresh rate, you can bet that Samsung's Odyssey G9 monitor will not be cheap when it launches on July 29th. With support for FreeSync Premium Pro and a G-Sync Compatability validation, this screen is due to be an incredible monitor for PC gaming, offering high-end display features, high refresh rate support and low 1ms grey-to-grey response times.

Not as impressive when you realize you can't even take full advantage of this monitor without compression. You'll still need DSC for HDMI 2.1 or run at 4:2:2. Otherwise it's insane non compression bandwidth requires 60.62 Gbit/s!


This should have waited for DP 2.0, but we won't see that until next year at the earliest.Quote

you can complain that dsc is needed or you can simply set the refresh to 144 or 165 hz as with over 7 million pixels no modern title is coming close to getting 240 fps, then you can enjoy full chroma 4:4:4, 10 bit at 144 hz, i dont see how that is a bad thingQuote

Well they are releasing a product with marketing checkboxes just to say "Look what we have" but in doing so the product is compromised.

This monitor should be DP 2.0, Then DSC, Which does degrade image quality, Wouldn't be needed, If I'm paying, Likely £2000 for a monitor of this calibre, I don't want to have to sacrifice image quality to use the panels full potential.Quote
