Samsung’s new 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor is now available to preorder at Best Buy and Samsung ahead of its October 2 release date. The new gaming monitor is unsurprisingly pricey at $2,500, but both retailers are offering a pretty awesome preorder bonus. All orders placed between September 18 and October 1 come with a free $500 gift card to the retailer you ordered from.
Samsung 57″ Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor
The Odyssey Neo G9 has a massive curved 57-inch screen with a super-wide 32:9 aspect ratio and a 7,680 x 2,160 resolution. That’s identical to two 32-inch 4K monitors placed side by side. In fact, the monitor offers multiple display options, including a single-image mode that takes advantage of the entire 32:9 screen, and Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes that let you view video from multiple inputs–meaning you could plug your PC and game console into this monitor and display both simultaneously.
The Odyssey Neo G9 also sports a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and supports AMD Freesync Premium Pro. These specs should make for a slick and smooth gaming experience free of stuttering or screen tearing. As for connectivity, the monitor includes one Display Port slot, three HDMI 2.1 ports, and a USB hub.
