Samsung’s Updated Odyssey G9 Neo

Samsung has just announced the follow-up to their ultra wide 49-inch curved gaming monitor, the Odyssey Neo G9.

The Odyssey Neo G9 is similar to its predecessor in many ways, maintaining its Dual QHD 5120×1440 resolution, 32:9 aspect ratio, 1000R curvature, 240hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. The monitor also still supports both AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync for preventing screen tear and reducing input lag.

However, the new Neo G9 features a Quantum Mini LED backlit panel with 2,048 dimming zones and Quantum HDR 2000 to offer a peak brightness of 2,000 nits. Ultimately, Samsung claims the technology will be able to provide “perfect black and white levels for unparalleled contrast and immaculate detail.” The HDMI ports on the Neo G9 also have been upgraded to the new HDMI 2.1 standard with Variable Refresh Rate which allows the display to support both PCs and consoles.

On the outside, the Neo G9 features the familiar glossy white finish and infinity core lighting system. Moreover, the monitor now comes with CoreSync, a feature which allows the rear lighting system to sync with what is happening on screen for a more immersive experience.

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 will be available for pre-order starting July 29th for price of $2,499.99, and will be available globally by August 9th.
