Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC: New 57-inch gaming monitor released with 240 Hz and 'Dual UHD' panel
Samsung has officially confirmed pricing and a release date for the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC, which it now refers to as a 'Dual UHD' gaming monitor. To recap, the company presented the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC in January during CES 2023. Thus, nearly eight months since the monitor's debut, during which it started selling the Odyssey OLED G9.
Unsurprisingly, specifications remain unchanged, with a 57-inch IPS panel underpinning proceedings that outputs at 7,680 x 2,160 pixels in a 32:9 aspect ratio. Moreover, the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC has a 1000R curvature, delivers 420 nits peak brightness with VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, 1 ms GtG response times and a 240 Hz refresh rate. According to Samsung, the gaming monitor also supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro but lacks any equivalent NVIDIA-based technologies.
In short, the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC is US$300 more expensive than the Odyssey OLED G9, courtesy of its US$2,499 MSRP. For reference, Samsung also charges £2,199 for the same monitor in the UK and €2,499 in the Eurozone. The company has already opened pre-orders too, albeit with varying offers and shipment dates.
For example, Samsung will include a Jet Bot Robot Vacuum cleaner (VR30T80313W) worth £399 in the UK but The Freestyle 2nd Gen, a €999 projector, and €100 off in the Eurozone with promotional code MONITOR100. Similarly, while the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC will begin shipping on August 29 in the UK, pre-orders placed in the Eurozone will be held back until September 7. Meanwhile, Samsung has confirmed that the monitor will be unavailable until October in the US. Please see Samsung's website for more details.
