How wide is too wide? Originally unveiled during CES 2020, Samsung has begun shipping its latest monstrosity, the Odyssey G9. This is a 49″ monitor that features an insane 32:9 aspect ratio (5120 x 1440 resolution), which you won’t find on any other display. Its futuristic, Portal-inspired design isn’t too shabby, either.

“The G9 is the world’s first Dual Quad High-Definition (DQHD; 5120×1440 resolution) 240Hz rapid refresh rate, 1ms response time, 32:9 aspect ratio gaming monitor, with a deep, immersive 1000R curve and 1000 cd/m2 peak brightness,” boasted Samsung. “The monitor features Quantum dot technology combined with a HDR1000 VA panel to produce lifelike colors in vivid detail.”

It doesn’t look like Samsung’s Odyssey G9 has hit US shops yet, but it’s already up for pre-order across the pond, courtesy of OverclockersUK. Naturally, this massive display comes with a massive price: £1,279.99, or about $1,600 USD.

Thanks, TFT Central.
