Samsung Odyssey family has been home to the company’s flagship gaming monitor. The Odyssey Ark joins the lineup as the world’s first 55-inch 4K curved gaming display with a 165Hz refresh rate. So, let’s go through the Samsung Odyssey Ark’s specifications, availability, and expected price in Nepal.
Samsung Odyssey Ark Overview:
Samsung initially showed us this monitor at CES 2022, and it is now available for mass shipment. Going over its primary USP, the display, it’s a 55″ mini-LED powered panel with 1000R curvature and 4K resolution. You can also rotate it, which according to Samsung adds a new level of immersion.
Best of all, it has a cockpit mode that allows users to flip the entire display vertically for multitasking and a completely different experience.
Likewise, the display has a 165Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time, and a built-in chipset to upscale video to 4K for the best gaming experience. It also supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and has features such as a Game Bar for adjusting the display aspect ratio (16:9 / 21:9 / 32:9).
Another notable software feature is the Gaming Hub, which allows you to access popular PC and console games as well as leading streaming services all in one spot. A Multi View feature allows up to four apps to be split over the screen.
Furthermore, the Odyssey Ark has four corner speakers and two center woofers that can provide 60W of audio output. They are Dolby Atmos-tuned, and AI Sound Booster produces a three-dimensional sound field to immerse you in the game world.
Rest of the specs
There are no I/O ports integrated into the display for connectivity. Instead, like with its Frame TV, Samsung includes a separate one-connect box with all of the necessary interfaces, including four HDMI 2.1 connectors, two USB ports, one headphone jack, and an ethernet port. A 200 x 200 mm VESA mount may be used to wall mount the monitor.
