Samsung has also unveiled two new models in its G9 line of gaming monitors with an ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio at CES 2023 - the huge 57" Odyssey Neo G9 with a dual UltraHD resolution, and the 49" Odyssey OLED G9 with a dual QHD resolution, both of which are also interesting for video editing due to their large screen area and technical DFats.
Samsung Odyssey Neo G9
The curved (1000R) 57" Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor (model name: G95NC) with VA panel offers a resolution of 7,680 × 2,160 pixels, which is equivalent to two side-by-side 16:9 32" 4K UltraHD displays. Thanks to Samsung&s Quantum Mini LED technology, it complies with VESA Display HDR 1000 specifications and thus offers a brightness of up to 1,000 nits, twice the contrast of DisplayHDR 600 via local dimming, and 10-bit color depth.
In addition, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is one of the first monitors that supports the new DisplayPort 2.1 standard (however, only AMD&s Radeon RX 7900 XT(X) GPUs currently have corresponding ports) and can thus transfer data about twice as fast as the previously used DisplayPort 1.4. Furthermore, the new DisplayPort 2.1 enables the almost lossless compression of monitor signals via Display Stream Compression (DSC), which effectively increases the data bandwidth even further and thus allows the Odyssey Neo G9 a refresh rate of 240 Hz at a resolution of 7,680 × 2,160.

Odyssey OLED G9
. At 49", the Odyssey OLED G9 (model name: G95SC) is slightly smaller than the Neo G9, but still very large - its ultra-wide display is also curved (1800R) for better visibility. It also has a 32:9 aspect ratio, and its dual QHD resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 pixels is the same as two 16:9 QHD monitors, each with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. It also achieves a refresh rate of up to 240 Hz, but Samsung uses an even higher-quality display technology here, because each pixel can be controlled individually via OLED, which allows the OLED G9 to achieve a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, as well as the display of true black. Samsung has not yet communicated whether the G9 OLED also supports DisplayPort 2.21.
Entertainment integrated via Smart Hub
Thanks to Samsung&s integration of Samsung&s Smart Hub including Tizen OS, the Odyssey OLED G9 also offers the entertainment features of a Smart TV, i.e. by means of apps such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix or YouTube, video content from the web can be watched directly on the monitor without any additional devices. In addition, the OLED G9 is equipped with Samsung&s Gaming Hub, an all-in-one platform for game streaming that allows users to play games from partners like Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now in the cloud without a console.
Samsung has not yet announced a price or release date for either of the new models presented. For comparison: Samsung&s 54.6-inch Odyssey Ark costs around 2,600 Euros, the 49-inch Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 with a resolution of also 5,120 x 1,440 like the OLED G9 (but with a VA panel instead of OLED, i.e. the OLED G9 will probably be much more expensive) around 1,460 Euros. more infos at bei news.samsung.com
