Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Update Teased

First 8K UltraWide Gaming Monitor Coming Soon

At the recent launch event for the new AMD Radeon graphics cards, the brand focused a lot on its newly enhanced 8K capabilities, which are claimed to reach up to 165Hz refresh rates while maintaining such high resolutions, thanks to the new RX 7900 GPUs that come with the latest DisplayPort 2.1 ports.


For reference, almost all other graphics cards that can compete with these units in terms of power and pricing still feature the last gen DisplayPort 1.4 ports, which are limited to 60Hz, if they can even manage 8K resolutions. Even in 4K, most of them are still limited to 144Hz and below, considering the bandwidth limitations of the connection.

Thanks to this upgrade, desktop computers can now support 4K resolutions up to 480Hz and 8K up to 165Hz. Unfortunately, even if you are ready to upgrade to the new processors and GPUs that may enable such peak performance, there are hardly any gaming monitors available in the market that can take advantage of such high refresh rates at such amazing resolutions. This is where Samsung comes in, as they just teased the launch of a brand-new Odyssey Neo G9 8K model on the same stage.

This new model will be an upgrade to the existing G9, which is already a pretty premium ultrawide gaming monitor, at a starting price of $2,200. This gets you up to a 5,120 x 1,440 resolution and 240Hz refresh rate, both of which will have to be significantly bumped to match the new requirements. While we don't know if the company will launch a special 4K version as well, which can reach the theoretical 480Hz refresh rate, we do expect them to release the 8K model with 165Hz at least.

One thing to keep in mind is that, even though this will be the first 8K ultra-wide gaming monitor to feature the DisplayPort 2.1, the resolution will be 8K in the horizontal aspect only, with the vertical side getting a more 'technical' version of the same. Still, this would be a considerable jump in performance, which will require an equally large jump in build quality and display size, considering the human eye's general limitations when focusing at such high resolutions. Now to mention the sheer power input required to showcase such detailed images at such high speeds.

The brand will showcase all these details along with the new price when they officially launch the new model at the upcoming CES show in January. We can expect other brands, like Acer, ASUS, LG and more, to also start shipping monitors with DisplayPort 2.1, to take advantage of this new update. So, stay tuned for our CES coverage, as there be lots of new and exciting announcements just like this.
