Samsung’s new Odyssey Neo G7 gaming monitor has just been launched. It has a 43-inch screen with 4K resolution, a response time of 1ms and a refresh rate of 144Hz. The display, which uses Quantum Mini LEDs, is also VESA Display HDR600 and HDR 10+. The Odyssey Neo G7 is available starting today for $1,000.
The specifications of the Odyssey Neo G7 are good, but unique features help it stand out against the best gaming monitors it competes with. It comes with the Samsung Gaming Hub, which lets you stream games through Xbox Cloud Gaming, NVIDIA GeForce NOW and other services without having to connect a PC to the display.
This functionality will sound familiar to those who have checked out Samsung’s latest TVs. I bought a TV with the Samsung Gaming Hub last year and the game streaming was good enough that I ended up ditching the Xbox.
Odyssey Neo G7 also has smart TV functionality, so you can stream YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video and more.
However, game streaming is not for everyone. If you have one of the best gaming PCs, you can use the Odyssey Neo G7 as a regular gaming monitor.

Game Bar allows you to change FPS, aspect ratio, ratio, HDR and other aspects of the screen without having to jump through a long menu.
The Odyssey Neo G7 has a 16:9 aspect ratio, but you can switch it to Ultrawide Game View to change the aspect ratio to 21:9. It will result in letterboxing, but it will also show a wider rendering of gameplay that is preferred for some games.
The screen also supports Flex Move Screen, which converts the screen into a 20-inch screen.
Gaming near a window with natural light shouldn’t be a problem since the Odyssey Neo G7 has a matte display.
The 43-inch version of the Odyssey Neo G7 is what launched today. Samsung already had a wide variety of other Odyssey gaming monitors available.
