Samsung’s 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 gets a price and release date. The Dual UHD gaming monitor from Samsung which has a resolution of two 4K displays now has a price as well as a release date. The monitor will be available in the US in the month of October for $2,499.99.
Samsung’s 57-Inch Odyssey Neo G9 Release Date
The 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 of Samsung, which is its massive gaming monitor that is very much like having two 32-inch 4K displays sat pretty next to each other, will be readily available in the US in October for $2,499.99, the company has just announced. And if it is that you are in the UK the monitor in question is available to preorder from today starting at £2,199.99.
If the Odyssey Neo G9 monitor sounds familiar, then that might just be for a couple of reasons. Samsung initially teased the monitor last November just before officially announcing it at CES in January this year, albeit without a price or even a firm release date. But the Odyssey Neo G9 name in question might also sound familiar simply because Samsung then released a 49-inch model under the same name back in 2021 that only got to offer the combined resolution of two 1440p displays.
What Samsung Is Offering Buyers with This New Monitor
Samsung in 2023, is now offering buyers 57 inches of curved Mini LED display with a refresh rate of 240Hz, as well as a peak brightness of 1000 nits (VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, 420 nits typical), and then a total resolution of 7,680 x 2,160. That in turn translates to a wildly ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio.
Our experience with prior monitors that are this wide is that the extra horizontal resolution gets to end up being more useful for multi-tasking rather than just ultra-wide gaming. My colleague already explored the issue in-depth when he got to review a previous Odyssey G9 monitor, but the short version however is that many 3D games start to become seriously warped on monitors that are this wide, even when they even support the resolution in the first place.
Specs and Features of the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9
For multitasking, Samsung as you should know has equipped the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 with picture-in-picture as well as picture-by-picture display modes, thus enabling you to display content from multiple inputs all at once. The monitor in question is also equipped with one DisplayPort 2.1 port, as well as three HDMI 2.1 ports.
There is also a USB hub that is included for good measure, though the press release of Samsung does not really offer details on exactly just how many ports that gets you. The monitor also supports the FreeSync Premium Pro variable refresh rate tech of AMD.
Samsung’s 2023 Version of the 55-inch Odyssey Ark
Samsung as well as the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9, has also reportedly announced a release window for the 2023 version of its 55-inch Odyssey Ark, which in question will be available in the United States in October. Samsung has stated that the 55-inch display can show up to four inputs on the screen simultaneously (which are three HDMI and a DisplayPort) and also features a built-in KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch. There is however no sign of a price just yet.
