The Samsung Odyssey Ark curved monitor sports a 55-inch 1000R curved display with a 4K (2,160 x 3,840 pixels) resolution with a 165Hz refresh rate and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by Samsung’s Neural Quantum Processor Ultra, and the monitor features quantum Mini LED backlighting with local dimming, with a response time of 1ms (GTG). The newly added 14-bit processing allows pitch-black scenes to be deeper black, with up to 16,384 black levels.
The monitor has a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and comes with support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, which offers gamers variable refresh rates support. Users can also switch the screen’s size to a 27-inch display, using the Ark Dial controller. Samsung says the screen ratio can also be adjusted between 16:9, 21:9, and 32:9. The Neural Quantum Processor Ultra works to provide enhanced visuals using 20 neural networks.
Users can also rotate the display with the HAS, according to Samsung, via the dedicated cockpit mode. The monitor’s display can be tilted and pivoted, while the multi view functionality allows users to display up to four screens simultaneously. The Ark Dial allows users to control settings like Flex Move Screen, MultiView, Quick Settings, and Game Bar. The Ark Dial is solar-powered but can also be charged with a USB Type-C cable.
The Sound Dome Technology featuring AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos elevates the surround sound experience. With one speaker at each corner and two central woofers, the Odyssey Ark can create a total output of 60W using 2.2.2 channel speakers.
