Samsung Electronics, a global leader in the visual display industry, today announced the future of gaming monitors with the newest entries in its Odyssey monitor series: the Odyssey Neo G9 57″ (G95NC model) and the Odyssey Ark 55″ (G97NC model). The gaming monitors are on display at Gamescom 2023 — the world’s largest event for computer and video games, held from August 23 to 27 in Cologne, Germany — and the Odyssey Neo G9 57″ can now be pre-ordered globally.
“The world of gaming is constantly evolving, and our latest monitor technology is crucial for gamers to open new doors to adventure and perform their best. Samsung’s monitor leadership is further boosted by our newest Odyssey monitors, which unlock the ultimate level of immersion and create new experiences for gamers worldwide,” said Hoon Chung, EVP of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Gamescom is where the future of gaming is built. We can’t imagine a better place to showcase the future of monitors.”
Odyssey Neo G9 57” Offers Gamers Next-Level Immersion and Specifications
The Odyssey Neo G9 57″ (G95NC model) is designed to deliver groundbreaking visual experiences for gamers looking to enhance performance and sharpen their competitive edge. With the world’s first Dual Ultra-High-Definition (DUHD) screen and a suite of high-speed connectivity options, the Odyssey Neo G9 57″ already earned a Best of Innovation Award at CES 2023.
The 1000R curvature in the 57″ 32:9 screen is as wide as two 32” UHD monitors, wrapping around users with pin-sharp images and a wide field of view, immersing them in their games like never before.
Quantum Matrix Technology powers Samsung’s Quantum Mini LED lighting in the screen, which offers smaller, more discrete dimming zones. The result is a better distinction between light and dark areas of the screen, with sharp contrast and less blooming.
The Odyssey Neo G9 57” makes the most out of its Quantum Mini LED lighting by combining it with VESA DisplayHDR1000. With 1,000 nit peak brightness, HDR content appears vivid and life-like, with accurate color and contrast reproduction, as well as enhanced color expression and depth.
The gaming performance matches the level of visual quality to help gamers meet their full potential. The 240 hertz (Hz) refresh rate and 1ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time1 deliver less blur and minimized ghosting, allowing gamers to react instantly and seal victory while enjoying a smooth gaming experience and exhilarating gameplay. Plus, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro syncs the screen for a stable, lag-free picture.
The Odyssey Neo G9 57” offers VESA-certified DisplayPort (DP) 2.1 connectivity, which facilitates smooth gaming, efficient video playback and the Neo G9’s DUHD resolution up to 240Hz.2 In addition to DP2.1, the Odyssey Neo G9 57” also offers HDMI 2.1 and a USB hub, so gamers can hook up all their devices and elevate their game with less mess.
“By bringing DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity to their premium gaming monitor, Samsung is opening new doors for gamers,” said Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “More bandwidth, higher speeds and faster refresh rates provide new levels of performance and visual fidelity in games, and together the new Samsung displays and Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards will deliver the most vivid and immersive gaming experiences yet.”
With such a wide, high-definition screen and a generation-defining new input, gamers can use the Odyssey Neo G9 57” in place of multiple monitors, keeping their desk clean from clutter, while creating a comfortable multitasking single-screen environment. Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes offer multiple inputs at a single glance, and the monitor utilizes Auto Source Switch+ to instantly connect to new devices without flipping through input sources. An ergonomic stand, Core Lighting+ and CoreSync make the monitor fit in any environment and match the mood of the game with ambient lighting.
In August and September, the Samsung Odyssey Twitch channel is also celebrating the launch of the Odyssey Neo G9 57” with a special event named Odyssey Evolves. During the event, some of the biggest streamers will be playing the hottest games on the Odyssey Neo G9 57” while also giving away prizes for channel followers — including a $10,000 gaming setup featuring the Odyssey Neo G9 57”.
Explore a New Frontier With the Upgraded Odyssey Ark
The Odyssey Ark, the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming screen, has been meaningfully upgraded. Building on the success of the original Odyssey Ark, Samsung has taken the new Ark to the next level based on gamers’ feedback. In addition to the stunning picture quality, form factor and professional-level gaming performance, new features designed for connectivity, convenience, performance will satisfy gamers looking for ultimate entertainment.
The monitor’s 165Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG response time3 give gamers the edge to win, and Cockpit Mode gives them whole new perspectives to explore with a vertical orientation.
Added features to the Odyssey Ark (G97NC model) include the new Samsung Multi View, which lets users see up to 4 inputs on the screen at once.4 It also significantly enhances split-screen capabilities, letting gamers get full command and convenience in one screen, even when using external devices. One screen with multiple inputs keeps desks streamlined and clutter-free, so gamers can focus on the game at hand. In the new Multi View, users can see input from three HDMI ports and the DP1.4 connection simultaneously. This new DP input can also support 4K UHD streams for high quality entertainment.
The Odyssey Ark is now also more than a personal gaming theater — it is a single source for all computer needs. The added Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) switch feature5 makes the Ark a single command station for a smooth multitasking experience across multiple devices. Users can now control all the devices connected to the monitor with a single mouse and keyboard setup.
The Odyssey Neo G9 will be available for pre-order beginning at Gamescom 2023, and the 2023 Odyssey Ark will be available for pre-order in September.6

Samsung Electronics today announced it is expanding its ViewFinity monitor lineup with the global availability of the 27-inch ViewFinity S9 (S90PC model). The launch of the ViewFinity S9 strengthens Samsung’s high-resolution monitor lineup following the introduction of the ViewFinity S8 (S80PB model) in June 2022 which featured an Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution. The new ViewFinity S9 is optimized with all the tools needed in industries like graphic design and photography and also being named a CES Innovation Award honoree in 2023.
“Our new 5K monitor is designed to deliver the highest performance and best experience for professionals in creative and visual industries,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “With the ViewFinity lineup, we will provide creatives with top-notch visual experiences, along with the lifelike color clarity and versatile connectivity they need to achieve the best in any project.”
The new ViewFinity S9 offers a 27” screen with 5K (5,120 x 2,880) resolution for a workspace that’s over 50% bigger than other UHD monitors, with exceptional picture and text clarity. It allows for professionals to work on ultra-high resolution content without needing to zoom in, so they can view their projects in 5K while still keeping all their editing tools visible on screen.
With 99% DCI-P31 and 218 PPI (pixels per inch), the ViewFinity S9 provides more saturated and vivid colors with crisper details, perfect for those who rely on visual fidelity.2 Furthermore, a typical brightness of 600 cd/m2 makes it easy to work in nearly any lighting environment. Samsung’s calibration technology helps users achieve the accurate color they want. During production, the monitor’s color is factory calibrated for incredible Delta E <21 accuracy immediately out of the box.3
The ViewFinity S9 uses the Smart Calibration feature controlled with smartphones,4 which is the first in the industry, and users can conveniently customize the ViewFinity S9’s screen for precise settings without expensive, complex calibration equipment whenever they want. Using the SmartThings app, users can choose to calibrate in basic mode for a quick and easy adjustment of white balance and gamma settings, or they can use professional mode for complete control of color temperature, luminance, color space and gamma settings. Users can start this process simply by pointing their smartphone camera at the ViewFinity S9’s screen, and after calibration, they can view a report detailing the adjustments made and the Delta E color accuracy.
The ViewFinity S9 also supports its users with TUV-certified Intelligent Eye Care features to reduce eye strain, even over extended periods of use. Additionally, Samsung’s Matte Display limits light reflection and glare on the monitor, minimizing distractions while working.
The visual performance of the ViewFinity S9 is enhanced by features designed to make professionals’ lives easier.

The monitor comes equipped with a built-in 4K SlimFit camera that connects via pogo pin without additional cables or equipment. The camera’s high resolution delivers crystal clear quality for video calls on apps such as Google Meet. The camera tilts to fit the angle of your monitor, and Auto Framing6 keeps you visible and in-shot, even when you shift position.
The ViewFinity S9’s slim metal design works for any space. With its ergonomic design, this product provides comfort and improves productivity by adjusting to almost any position or posture. A height adjustable stand matches the user’s eye level, and the screen can tilt to match viewing angles. In Pivot mode, the screen rotates 90 degrees, so users can read long documents with less scrolling. With VESA mount compatibility, users can save space and keep desks clutter-free.
Embedded Smart TV apps give users the full TV experience when it’s time to switch to entertainment after work. Instant access to popular streaming apps and shows without a separate PC, built-in speakers with Adaptive Sound+ that automatically adjust noise levels and a remote control make this a well-rounded monitor for both work and play.

Samsung Introduces SeeColors Mode on 2023 TV and Monitor Lineup To Enhance Experience for Color Blind UsersBy Samsung Newsroom
Samsung Electronics today announced the addition of SeeColors mode on its 2023 TV and monitor lineup.1 The newly added accessibility feature provides various color settings based on degrees and types of color vision deficiency (CVD),2 offering an improved viewing experience.
SeeColors mode provides nine picture presets so users can select the option that is most suitable for them. The feature adjusts red, green and blue levels to ensure viewers can easily distinguish colors on the screen depending on their degree or type of CVD.
Originally released as an application in 2017, SeeColors helps those with CVD enjoy their screen as it was meant to be seen. Now, integrated in TV and monitor accessibility menus, this feature is more readily available to users. For consumers who have already purchased a 2023 model, a software update will be available to add SeeColors to the accessibility menu.
Samsung has earned “Color Vision Accessibility” certification from TÜV Rheinland,3 in acknowledgement of SeeColors mode’s ability to help those with CVD better enjoy content on Samsung screens. This recognition builds on Samsung’s commitment to accessibility, under the vision of “Screens Everywhere, Screens for All.”
“We are thrilled to introduce additional accessibility features, including SeeColors and Relumino mode, in our 2023 TV and monitor lineup to assist individuals with color blindness and low vision,” said Seokwoo Jason Yong, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Under the vision of ‘Screens Everywhere, Screens for All,’ we will continue to innovate and bring inclusive technologies closer to our consumers.”
For more information on Samsung’s accessibility features, please visit www.samsung.com.
1 SeeColors mode is available on Samsung’s 2023 TV and monitor lineup, including the Neo QLED, QLED, OLED, Smart Monitor and the G95SC gaming monitor.
2 This feature is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of any disease or medical problem. Any information found, acquired or accessed through this feature is made available for your convenience and should not be treated as medical advice.
3 TÜV Rheinland, headquartered in Cologne, Germany, is a globally renowned testing organization that offers quality and safety certifications across various industries. The “Color Vision Accessibility” certification was awarded on June 7, 2023.

Samsung’s new gaming monitor is so expensive that it might be worth more than the computer you have powering it.
In a press release, the company announced that it is officially opening up preorders for the Odyssey OLED G9, its new 49-inch ultrawide gaming monitor. It’s a beast of a monitor and, being OLED, will be a great option for gamers who not only want a great-looking display, but a fast one as well. However, all of that technology comes with a huge price of $2,199.
So, what do you get for $2,199? A heck of a lot, actually. According to Samsung, the Odyssey OLED G9 is the “first OLED monitor to offer Dual Quad High Definition (DQHD; 5,120 x 1,440) resolution with a 32:9 ratio.” The monitor features a pixel density of 110PPI, 0.03ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time, and a 240Hz refresh rate. The company says that the resolution of the screen is “equivalent to two QHD screens side by side.”
The monitor features Samsung’s new Neo Quantum Processor Pro, AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro, DisplayHDR™ True Black 400, and built-in stereo speakers. I’m surprised that it even has speakers since most gamers will always opt to use a headset, especially at the level of investment that this monitor is.
James Fishler, Senior Vice President, Home Entertainment & Display Division, Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement that the Odessey is “in a class of its own.”
Samsung says that anyone who preorders the Odyssey OLED G9 from the company will get a $250 Samsung.com gift card. It’s available to preorder until the 25th, indicating that the official launch may be on June 26th.
This is obviously an insanely expensive monitor that only those with the money and the love of gaming will invest in, but it’s awesome to see Samsung just going for it here. Of course, as with any technology, these kinds of experiences will get more affordable with scale.
For now, I’ll stick with my 27-inch LG Ultragear. It’s a great monitor and handles all of the Xbox I can throw at it. But I’m not going to lie — I can’t help but want a monitor like Samsung is about to put out in the world. I’m a sucker for OLED, and bringing it to my gaming monitor would be a joy.
