Samsung Odyssey Ark

Samsung today announced the global availability of Odyssey Ark, the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming monitor that offers a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time (GtG), and an all-new Cockpit Mode and an exclusive controller, the Ark Dial — to deliver immersive gaming experience. Find the details below.

The Cockpit Mode enables the monitor to rotate with HAS (Height Adjustable Stand), tilt and pivot functionality for an optimal viewing experience. With Quantum Mini LEDs and 14-bit processing, gamers can see 16,384 black levels for realistic graphics. Also, the Neural Quantum Processor Ultra uses data generated from 20 neural networks to enhance every visual detail.

The Odyssey Ark also features Samsung’s Matte Display (anti-glare and anti-reflection protection) and Sound Dome Technology that includes AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos to enhance the surround sound experience.

Four speakers, one at each corner, and two central woofers result in realistic and rich sound thanks to a 60W 2.2.2 channel with the lowest 45Hz notes of any gaming screen or gaming soundbar.

With AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support, gamers will be able to enjoy games without losing frames. Samsung Gaming Hub allows instant access to top game streaming services including Xbox Cloud Gaming, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia, Utomik and Amazon Luna.

  • The solar-powered Ark Dial — the exclusive controller for the Odyssey Ark — can quickly and simply control a variety of settings, including Flex Move Screen, Multi View, Quick Settings and Game Bar.
  • Flex Move Screen allows users to adjust screen size between 55- and 27-inches, change the screen position and even switch the screen ratio between 16:9, 21:9 and 32:9 — all with just one touch of Ark Dial.
  • Game Bar enables gamers to quickly and easily view their gaming status and control important settings without ever needing to leave the game screen. From checking FPS (Frames Per Second), HDR (High Dynamic Range) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), to adjusting settings such as screen ratio, response time and Game Picture mode, Game Bar puts the player in control and on the road to victory.
