Expect Samsung to reveal an 8K ultrawide display at CES 2023

During the company's RDNA 3 GPU reveal, AMD confirmed that their Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards would support DisplayPort 2.1, a new standard that would enable the creation of high refresh rate 8K monitors and ultra high refresh rate 4K displays. To sell the importance of DisplayPort 2.1, AMD also stated that Samsung plans to reveal a DisplayPort 2.1 compatible ultrawide monitor at CES 2023. 

Samsung's next-generation Odyssey Neo G9 monitor will launch with DisplayPort 2.1 support, an 8K horizontal resolution and support for AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) technology. Currently, we expect this screen to feature a resolution of 2160 x 7680, making it a dual-wide 8K monitor. 

With DisplayPort 2.1,  Samsung's planned 8K Odyssey G9 monitor could support refresh rates as high a 240Hz, making it an absurdly fast ultrawide gaming monitor. In terms of raw pixel count, this screen will have half as many pixels as a proper 8K display, which would have a 4320 x 7680 pixel grid.

Samsung plans to officially reveal their "8K" Odyssey G9 display at CES 2023 in January. We expect to receive full specifications for this new gaming-oriented ultra-wide monitor at CES.

Just another absolutely not asked for and pointless monitor. The monitor market is just filled with absurd offerings that no one in its right mind would or should buy... And of course instead of investing their efforts into bringing the great back lighting tech on the previous Odyssey NEO G9 into more cheaper monitors, Samsung decided they would invest their money into another G9 just with 8k resolution, because that's something that people surely want to buy.Quote

Why would they want to do that though? What consumers want doesn't necessarily align what companies want. It's the premium products that net the most profit for companies.Quote

These are halo products with a lot of the features over time slowly trickling down to lower end hardware, I have the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 and it is amazing, Came out 4'ish months ago, It was pricey but worth it and eventually that same 1200 zone lighting, HDR 1000+ etc... will make its way down the stack.

It's the same with products like this 8K monitor, It tends to make the manufacturing of "lower" end hardware cheaper.Quote

I agree it's the Halo product but I still just wish someone would release a 32" OLED with high refresh rate, quality HDR and in 1440p and 4k formats.

We seem to be skipping the sensible upgrades that gamers can really benefit from given that you need beasts of a card still for 4K.Quote

I agree it would be nice to see 32" OLED's with all th fancy stuff but from what I've read it's mainly to do with yields of OLED and sales numbers.Quote
