I am trying to connect my Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57-inch monitor (S57CG952NU) to my Macbook Pro M1 14-inch 2021 (NKL4L4TXRW) as an external display. The monitor supports resolutions up to 7680 x 2160 @ 240 Hz but in the display settings of my Mac I can only see resolutions up to 5120 x 1440 even though "Show all resolutions" is enabled. I have also tried the app BetterDisplay with the same results.

I am wondering how I can achieve the 7680 x 2160 resolution. The refresh rate is not important for me.

  • My monitor has 3 × HDMI 2.1 (HDCP 2.2) and 1 × DisplayPort 2.1 (HDCP 2.2) outputs (DP currently in-use by my PC)
  • My Macbook has 3 × Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) ports (up to 40Gb/s)

Or is it simply not possible to achieve the 7680 x 2160 resolution from my Macbook Pro M1?

Hope someone can help.

@nextcspr Sorry but the M1 MacBook Pro only supports resolutions up to 6016x3384. 

Sounds like it's time to upgrade to the M2 MacBook Pro. It supports resolutions up to 7680x4320.

Oh, okay.
That's a big expense for a higher resolution 🙁
Thanks for your answer!
