Samsung Odyssey Ark is now available for pre-order
The Korean tech giant began taking registrations for the Odyssey Ark monitor last week, and the curved gaming monitor is now available for pre-order worldwide. The 55-inch Odyssey Ark costs $3,499, and Samsung justifies the high price with numerous great features and advanced technologies.
The list includes the 4K UHD Quantum Mini-LED curved panel, the built-in 60W 2.2.2-channel sound system with Dolby Atmos, a refresh rate of 165Hz, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, and a 1ms gray-to-gray response time.
The monitor also has a height-adjustable stand with tilt and pivot functionality, meaning that gamers can easily switch between portrait and landscape modes to fit different gameplay styles and game genres.
The Multi View feature turns this 55-inch monitor into up to four smaller ones, and the built-in Gaming Hub allows gamers to enjoy high-quality cloud gaming without having to spend anything extra, aside from the subscriptions required for gaming services like Xbox Game Pass.
