Samsung Opens New Era of OLED Gaming with Odyssey OLED G9
Update as of 06/27/2023: World’s first 49-inch OLED gaming monitor with a 0.03ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate is now available
Samsung Electronics America has announced the launch of the Odyssey OLED G9 gaming monitor (G95SC model), which has been enhanced with next-level AI upscaling technology. Building on the success of Odyssey OLED G8 (G85SB), the new monitor joins the lineup to open a new era of OLED gaming.
To celebrate the launch of the new model, the Odyssey Cup was held on the Samsung Odyssey Twitch channel on June 22, bringing together 100 global gamers for a Fortnite tournament for a $100,000 prize pool. The event featured streamers Lulu, Courage and Sommerset.
Measuring 49 inches in size with a 1800R curvature, 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 high pixel density (110PPI) provides more detailed game contents. With the large and wide screen ratio, users lose themselves in super-ultrawide view — equivalent to two QHD screens side by side. At the same time, its rapid 0.03ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time and 240Hz refresh rate offer players a competitive edge.
“The Odyssey OLED G9 delivers a premium, super-ultrawide gaming experience that puts it in a class of its own – raising the bar for OLED monitors,” said James Fishler, Senior Vice President, Home Entertainment & Display Division, Samsung Electronics America. “With the launch of our Odyssey OLED gaming monitors, we’re offering gamers new levels of immersion with unrivaled picture quality and innovative gaming features only Samsung can deliver.”
The addition of the Neo Quantum Processor Pro sets the Odyssey OLED G9 apart from other OLED gaming monitors. Using a deep learning algorithm, it intelligently analyzes images and automatically upscales to adjust brightness while amplifying contrast. This enables the monitor to restore each detail and deliver the most brilliant images, pixel by pixel.
AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro further enhances the Odyssey OLED G9’s super smooth gameplay experience. With DisplayHDR™ True Black 400, the monitor delivers incredible details and vivid colors regardless of the game being played or the content the user is watching.
The Odyssey OLED G9 features a slim design housed within a sleek metal frame. The back of the monitor includes Samsung Odyssey signature CoreSync and Core Lighting+ which use advanced lighting technology to match the colors on-screen, making content more immersive and bringing the gaming experience to life. Built-in stereo speakers complement on-screen content with crisp sound.
Unrivaled Choice on a Detailed, Vivid Display
Equipped with Samsung Gaming Hub and Smart TV apps, the Odyssey OLED G9 provides access to streaming, gaming services and entertainment all in one place. Users can watch their favorite shows from leading OTT (over-the-top) service providers without a connection to a PC or mobile device. Samsung Gaming Hub also enables users to discover and play games from partners such as Xbox Game Pass and NVIDIA GeForce Now — all without downloads or storage space requirements.
The Multi View offering allows users to take full advantage of the large display by enabling game play on up to two screens at once. This means that gamers now can enjoy multitasking without the hassle of a multiple-monitor setup.
The Odyssey OLED G9 offers a variety of convenient functions and features that provide an optimized experience whether gaming or viewing. Versatile connectivity options, including HDMI 2.1 and Micro HDMI 2.1, Display Port 1.4, and Auto Source Switch+, create cleaner connections from one central USB hub while providing a seamless experience regardless of the content source. The Height Adjustable Stand (HAS) enables users to find the perfect gaming or viewing position.
The Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC) is now available for pre-order on Samsung.com from June 12-25. Those who pre-order the monitor will receive a $250 Samsung.com gift card. The Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 will be available for purchase on Samsung.com and at select retailers nationwide for $2,199.99.1
