CES 2023 is where we see the displays that will define the best gaming monitors for the next year, and this year was no different. Samsung, LG, Asus -- everyone was out in full force with super high refresh rates, OLED, and more. Here are the best gaming monitors we've seen at CES 2023 so far.

As a result, we have the Odyssey OLED 49. It's basically the same as last years' Odyssey Neo G9 -- 32:9 aspect ratio, 49 inches, and with a 240Hz refresh rate. The critical change this time around is OLED.

Samsung is convinced you need a bigger gaming monitor -- or at least, that's what its CES 2023 lineup suggests. The company introduced four new monitors to its Odyssey gaming line, ranging from a 34-inch ultrawide monitor up to its 8K 57-inch monster.

It's an interesting move considering CES is also bringing the first 27-inch OLED monitors from LG that have been the talk of tech for the past couple of months. But for now, Samsung has just two Odyssey OLED monitors it's introducing: a 34-inch model and a 49-inch model.
