Samsung today unveiled a brand new product in its Odyssey Neo gaming monitor series, and it’s a beast of a display. The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ features the world’s first Dual Ultra-High-Definition screen, as wide as two 32″ UHD monitors stacked next to each other.

How much does the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57-inch cost?
Pricing information for the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ is not yet available. However, considering this is one of their most premium offerings, we expect it to cost quite a few pennies. We’ll update this article when we receive pricing information from Samsung but expect it to be available in the UAE.

Design and Comfort
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ seems to have the same stylistic flair as the previous models in the series. The back is a glossy white plastic with futuristic cuts and lines and could also have RGB backlighting.
Much like the 49″ Odyssey Neo G9, expect this 57″ monitor to be all desktop-consuming. However, thanks to the 1000R curvature. Samsung has managed to keep the overall width of the monitor lower than expected, which ensures that the monitor won’t appear unmanageably large.
Ergonomically, we do not expect the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ to have tilt support like Odssey Ark. However; you can expect height and swivel adjustments which are available on the 49″ model.
Features and performance
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ uses the company’s Quantum Matrix Technology and has paired it up with a Quantum Mini LED lighting system, offering smaller and more discrete dimming zones, sharp contrast, rich colours, and deep, inky blacks.
It also has VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, which means that the panel can reach at least 1,000 nits peak brightness, giving more depth to HDR scenes with vivid and life-like image quality.
For gaming, the monitor has its bases covered pretty well. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for a smooth gaming experience and features a 240Hz refresh rate panel with 1ms GtG for blurr and ghosting-free images. In terms of inputs, users can find DisplayPort 2.1 and at least one HDMI 2.1 port to support next-gen consoles. There is no official support for Nvidia G-Sync.
We’re not sure which current graphics can support the massive 7,680 x 2,160 resolution at 240Hz support. We might have to wait for next-gen GPUs to take advantage of what this display offers. We’re also hoping this monitor does not face any issues with scanlines- something many people complained about with the Neo G8.
Alternatives to Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57″ – How does it stack up against competitors?
The Samsung Odyssey Ark 55″ 1000R curve ultrawide gaming monitor immediately comes to mind when looking for a display that competes with the Odyssey Neo G9 57″. The Odyssey Ark is massive and features Mini-LED with Quantum Matrix Technology, 4K/165Hz VA panel, Dolby Atmos sound, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro compatibility, and more. However, it doesn’t feature any DisplayPort but has four HDMI 2.2 ports.
Another curved ultrawide monitor that has garnered praise is the Dell Alienware AW3420DW. It has a 1900R curve, a resolution of 3,400 x 1,440, 120Hz refresh rate, 2ms response time, Nvidia G-Sync compatibility with 1x HDMI port, 1x DisplayPort, 4x USB-A port, and 1x 3.5mm headphone jack. The biggest drawback against the Xeneon FLEX is the HDMI 1.4 port on the Alienware. It means the display will not be compatible with current consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X/S if you require variable refresh rate support.
