Samsung’s next-generation curved gaming monitor, the Odyssey Neo G9 with Quantum Mini LED technology is now available for pre-order in Australia. At A$2,999 it doesn’t come cheap, but the Odyssey Neo G9 joins is now the flagship gaming display.
Personally I’ve been using Samsung’s Super Ultra-wide displays as my daily display for years now, replacing my previous dual-display setup. While I’m currently using the LC49RG90SSEXXY, the Odyssey Neo G9 takes that to a who other level.
The same 49″ wide at a 32:9 aspect ratio, the HDR1000 and QLED becomes HDR2000 and Quantum Matrix Technology. The Neo G9 also features a super fast 240Hz refresh rate along with G-Sync compatibility and just 2ms input lag.
The rear of the display also got a serious upgrade, moving past a standard black, to a very nice white finish, complimented by the blue Tony-Stark-looking LED ring around the VESA mount. For those who’s desks are positioned in a way that allows the back of the display to be seen, this is a serious upgrade.
The big feature on offer is really that picture quality. The Quantum Mini-LED display will deliver an amazing gaming experience. When you’re not playing, the DQHD; 5,120×1,440 resolution also provides great real estate for productivity.
I love the ability to use the display as a single expansive desktop, or to use Picture-by-picture (PBP) which allows you to achieve a dual-monitor setup, without the bezel between the displays.
“Samsung’s Odyssey Neo G9 with Quantum Mini-LED is a stunning addition to any gaming set-up, it delivers an unrivalled immersive experience.
As Australians continue to explore the world of gaming in record numbers, the Odyssey Neo G9 offers a competitive advantage thanks to the addition of Quantum Matrix Technology combined with super-fast response and refresh rates that will take you to the top of the leader board. This is the time to stop playing fair and up the ante with a curved gaming monitor.”Phil Gaut, Director of Display and Memory Solutions at Samsung Australia.
