UPDATE [29/08/2022]: Following the big reveal at CES 2022 earlier this year, the Samsung Oddysey Ark has finally been scheduled for an Australian release over the coming months.

As the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming screen, the unconventional gaming monitor features an exceptional fluid 165Hz refresh rate, a lag-free 1ms response time for super-fast gaming and a rotating Cockpit Mode which uses a height adjustable stand to rotate, tilt and pivot the screen for complete immersion.

As the most interesting expression of Samsung’s Odyssey series of gaming monitors, the Samsung Odyssey Ark has been carefully designed to wrap around the user’s field of view and completely blanket them in a hi-resolution gaming experience. The 1000R curvature makes it one of the most fascinating gaming monitors on the market now and a clear indication of the importance of form factor when it comes to milking the most immersive gaming experience possible for those who take their Call of Duty sessions really serious.

Basically, it’s the ultimate amount of curviness a gaming monitor can offer right now and while the Samsung Odyssey Ark isn’t the first 1000R gaming monitor, it’s the first to offer a whopping 55-inches of real estate. This will go even further in helping deliver those deep inky blacks while reducing glare and working with the player’s field-of-view for complete immersion. This also helps reduce eye strain.

Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology, which uses Quantum Mini LEDs to offer a huge layer of detail, has been combined with 14-bit processing and a sophisticated lighting control system that should help significantly when it comes to contrast and new-gen ray tracing profiles. Samsung has packed in no less than 16,384 black levels to help build realistic graphics and truly express what the gaming developers want.

Much like with Samsung TVs, the Samsung Odyssey Ark relies heavily on a Neutral Quantum Processor Ultra to enhance every visual detail surrounding the content as well as upscale content to a 4K resolution even if it isn’t in native 4K.

In terms of sound, Samsung is using an AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos to offer the ultimate surround sound experience, with four speakers positioned at each corner of the monitor and two central woofers which help build realistic and rich sound in a 60-watt 2.2.2 channel.

Despite some reports out there, the Samsung Odyssey Ark is not yet available in Australia. However, Samsung has opened up expressions of interest for anyone who really can’t wait to get their hands and eyes across the next evolution of gaming monitors.

Your girlfriend has been lying. Size matters. At least when it comes to gaming/productivity setups. As the saying goes, anything worth doing is worth doing well. And this year, doing it well involves the rotating Samsung Odyssey Ark – the South Korean tech giant’s largest curved monitor yet, and what’s already being hailed the 55-inch king of next-gen gaming screens at CES 2022.

Officially unveiled in Las Vegas just days ago, the Odyssey Ark is a Quantum Dot Mini LED display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and sexy curvature. Capable of pivoting + tilting via its height-adjustable stand (HAS), essentially, you’ll have the power to set it to the optimal angle. Your optimal angle. Whether it’s in the conventional landscape mode or towering over you portrait style.

According to the press release, it also offers multiview options that allow users to “… adjust the Odyssey Ark exactly how they want it with a totally adaptable screen size to fit the game or the program without compromising its 4K display and bright, colourful images. The monitor also features a wireless, dial controller to manage lighting and the interface.”

At this stage, there’s no official word on the Samsung Odyssey Ark specs + technical capabilities – i.e. refresh rate, colour accuracy, latency, etc. – beyond its jaw-dropping dimensions and 4K resolution. Assuming it’s anything like the equally impressive Odyssey G9 curved monitor we had the distinct pleasure of test driving last year, it’ll certainly be another one for the Christmas list. You know… for recreational activities and whatnot. Or spreadsheets. But mostly the recreational activities and whatnot.

Keep an eye out for the Samsung Odyssey Ark monitor’s confirmed specs, pricing, and domestic availabilities below. Given how the Odyssey G9 retailed for $2,799 upon release, be prepared to fork out $3,000+.
