CES 2023 has officially kicked off and what better than to start off with some cool and new gaming monitors from Samsung, as the Odyssey Neo G9 and Odyssey OLED G9 curved gaming monitors are set to salivate gamers with deep pockets on the showfloor.
The new G95NC Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor is an impressive 57-inch curved monitor and the world’s first Dual UHD gaming monitor that sports an impressive 7680×2160 resolution, which is a commendable upgrade over last year’s 49-inch Odyssey Neo G9 with a DQHD resolution.
Like its predecessor, the G95NC uses quantum mini LED technology that meets the VESA Display HDR 1000 specifications to deliver a great gaming experience, the curved VA panel has a 1000R curvature and refreshes at 240Hz, while it continues to use a matte surface for lesser light reflection and reduces distractions during intense gaming sessions.
In terms of I/Os, the Odyssey Neo G9 is the world’s first monitor to feature DisplayPort 2.1, which is most necessary to drive up to the monitor’s resolution and refresh rate, not to mention that you will require a relatively powerful GPU to be able to take advantage of that.
On the other hand, the Odyssey OLED G9 could be the creme de la creme for gamers wanting a more eye candy gaming experience, as the name already suggests, it is an OLED gaming monitor that measures 49-inches with a more extreme 1800R curvature, albeit only having a DQHD resolution that refreshes at 240Hz.
Gamers will also be treated to a super-fast response time of 0.1ms, which will most certainly enhance the gaming experience regardless on PC or gaming console, while the monitor also comes with Smart Hub, which gives users access to streaming services such as Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube without the need for a PC.
On top of that, the Odyssey OLED G9 is equipped with Samsung Gaming Hub that offers access to cloud gaming services such as Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now, which all you need to do is to connect your peripherals directly to the monitor to start gaming without a PC or gaming console.
Samsung hasn’t announced when it will be bringing these excellent gaming displays to Malaysia, but just make sure your wallets are ready when they do, because from what all of us know, they would cost a premium to own.
