The 49-inch display already has a slim and ultra-wide QHD resolution called DQHD, which is equivalent to placing two QHD displays side by side, and the new feature in 2021 supports a brighter 2,000 nit peak brightness on Samsung’s Odyssey NeoG949-inch . For gamers, the HDR2000-class OdysseyNeoG9 means you will see more contrast.
The Odyssey G9 gaming monitor is already one of the largest and most immersive monitors on the market, and now Samsung is updating the panel to double its brightness. The 49-inch display already has a slim and ultra-wide QHD resolution called DQHD, which is equivalent to placing two QHD displays side by side, and the new feature in 2021 supports a brighter 2,000 nit peak brightness Neo G9 on Samsung’s Odyssey 49 inches.
For gamers, the HDR2000-class Odyssey Neo G9 means you will see more contrast. This means that you will see more details in the shadows and highlights, which allows you to identify things in dark shadows or bright areas of the game scene, such as enemies hidden in the background.
In contrast, Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro M1 with redesigned screen technology and the company’s professional-grade Pro Display XDR display both have a peak brightness level of 1,600 nits. However, the typical brightness is rated at 420 nits.
To achieve the HDR2000 brightness level on the Odyssey Neo G9, Samsung is using quantum matrix technology on some of its popular QLED TVs, such as the company’s Neo QLED TV. The company stated that the quantum mini LED in the matrix “means that the backlight has higher resolution and finer brightness distinction.”
“This next-generation display technology is realized by the new light source Quantum Mini LED,” Samsung said. “Quantum Mini LED is only 1/40 of the height of traditional LED, it has an incredible ultra-thin micro-layer, which is filled with more LEDs.”
The company claims that this technology can achieve “perfect black and white” on the display, using 2,048 dimming zones and enhanced 12-bit gradients to achieve better light source control.
In general, the Neo model retains many of the iconic features of the standard Odyssey G9, which has been on the market for some time, including a 1000R screen curvature and a 32:9 aspect ratio. This year’s model also retains the unique bright white finish on the back of the original Odyssey G9 design.
Like its predecessor, the Neo version supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and Nvidia G-Sync technology to achieve tear-free images when playing fast-paced games. The panel supports Display Port 1.4 and the new HDMI 2.1 standard, making it suitable for game consoles and PC games.
Both the new Odyssey Neo G9 and the standard Odyssey G9 support 240Hz refresh rate and fast 1ms response time.
The expansive digital canvas of the Odyssey Neo G9 makes this panel ideal for multitaskers who need more screen space to manage open windows and applications. Compared to a multi-monitor setup, the extremely wide width of the Odyssey Neo G9 means you don’t need to manage the clutter of cables connecting multiple monitors together.
