Samsung’s 57-inch ‘Dual UHD’ gaming monitor gets a price and release date


Samsung’s 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9, its massive gaming monitor that’s like having two 32-inch 4K displays side by side, will be available in the US in October for $2,499.99. the company has announced. If you’re in the UK, the monitor is available to pre-order from today for £2,199.99.

In 2023, Samsung will now offer a 57-inch curved Mini LED display with a 240Hz refresh rate, 1000 nits peak brightness (VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, 420 nits typical), and 7680 x 2160 total resolution. in a tremendously wide 32:9 aspect ratio. Our experience with previous monitors this wide is that the extra horizontal resolution ends up being more useful for multitasking than ultra-wide gaming. My colleague Sean Hollister explored the issue in depth when he reviewed an older Odyssey G9 monitor, but the short story is that most 3D games start to seriously warp on monitors this wide, even when they support the resolution in the first place.

For multitasking, Samsung has equipped the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 with Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture display modes, allowing you to display content from multiple inputs simultaneously. The monitor is equipped with a DisplayPort 2.1 port, as well as three HDMI 2.1 ports. A USB hub is also included for good measure, although Samsung’s press release doesn’t offer details on exactly how many ports it gives you. The monitor supports AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro variable refresh rate technology.

In addition to the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9, Samsung has also announced a launch window for the version 2023 of its 55-inch Odyssey Ark, which will be available in the US in October. Samsung says the 55-inch screen can display up to four inputs on the screen at once (three HDMI and one DisplayPort) and also has a built-in KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch. No sign of a price yet.
