An absolutely massive gaming monitor was been showcased by Samsung. The new Odyssey Ark is the largest 1000R curved display available to consumers, measuring in at 55 inches across, and it comes with excellent specifications that will give gamers something they genuinely covet. The display is capable of 4K resolution and 165 frames per second, and it uses Quantum Mini LEDs and 14-bit processing to provide a static contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and 16,384 black levels.
It has a peak brightness of 2,000 nits thanks to Quantum HDR 2000, and the matte coating will help cut down on any glare from sunlight streaming in the window. Odyssey Ark’s Cockpit mode allows you to spin the display 90 degrees, giving you a portrait orientation similar to stacking three standard monitors on top of each other, but without the clutter of bezels.
The monitor’s settings can be adjusted quickly and easily with the help of the Ark Dial remote, and the 60W of sound output from the four speakers and two sub-woofers will further immerse the user in the action. Samsung’s new 55-inch Odyssey Ark display, which can be preordered from the tech giant’s website for $3,500 USD, features a revolutionary curved design and a number of other innovative features.
Supports 4K resolution at refresh rates of up to 165 hertz with HDMI 2.1.
For 4K 165Hz gaming with VRR (AMD FreeSync), connect a PC or gaming console to Odyssey Ark’s HDMI 2.1 port or use the Gaming Hub’s built-in game streaming apps. Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Utomik, and Amazon Luna are just a few examples. The enormous external One Connect Box is where all of the connections must be connected.
Bigger than a television set
Samsung is betting that gamers will be willing to shell out a lot of money for its Odyssey Ark gaming display. Samsung’s own S95B QD-OLED TVs, which compete in this price range, offer superior picture quality, HDR, and response speed, and are worth considering for gamers. The first QD-OLED gaming monitor from Samsung has not yet been released, but it will be 34 inches in size, which is quite a little smaller than current options.
The Odyssey Ark also has a Multi-View functionality that allows users to split the screen into either three vertical or four horizontal panels. Nonetheless, there are a few restrictions, such as the inability to use Virtual Reality (VR), Game Mode, or the cloud. The Samsung Odyssey Ark may be pre-ordered in the United States right now for $3,500. Once it comes in late August, the price in Europe is expected to be around $3,400.
