The new Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 gaming monitor (G95SC) is leveraging AI upscaling technology to raise the bar for OLED gaming.
The massive 49-inch monitor with its 1800R curvature is equivalent to two QHD screens side by side; it’s the first OLED display to offer Dual Quad High Definition (DQHD; 5,120 x 1,440) resolution, with an impressive ‘longboi’ 32:9 aspect ratio. It also packs a Multi View feature that lets you display two screens simultaneously, eliminating the need for multiple monitors.
The G9 display meets VESA-certified DisplayHDR True Black 400 standards for proper HDR visual quality and offers a legitimate gaming performance in the form of a rapid 0.03ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time and a 240Hz refresh rate. The panel also supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro.
The highlight of the new Odyssey is, however, its “next-level” AI upscaling technology. The G9 uses the Neo Quantum Processor Pro to run a deep learning algorithm to analyse images, upscale content while tweaking the brightness and amplifying contrast, pixel by pixel.
With a slim profile and sleek metal frame, the G9 won’t look out of place on any table setup–but when the mood sets in, there’s always CoreSync and Core Lighting+ to bring forth a light show to match the on-screen colours. Though you probably would have your own audio setup, the G9 comes with built-in stereo speakers as well. That’s also because you can use the G9 as a smart TV. It comes with multiple port options: HDMI 2.1, Micro HDMI 2.1, Display Port 1.4, and an Auto Source Switch+ feature.
