First unveiled at CES 2022 in Las Vegas, Samsung’s massive 55-inch Odyssey ARK curved gaming monitor might be going on sale this August. Unlike other curved gaming monitors, this one boasts a 16:9 4K OLED display, complete with supports for pivot, tilt, and rotation modes. You can also set the aspect ratio to ultrawide 21:9 or ultrawide 49:9.
No specifications have yet been confirmed, but it’s rumored to feature a 1000R curve radius, UHD resolution, an active refresh rate of 165Hz, 1ms response time, six surround sound speakers with Dolby Atmos support, and support for AMD FreeSync / NVIDIA G-Sync technologies. It could be priced at $2,500 USD since the much smaller 32-inch Odyssey Neo G8 retails for $1,500. Don’t confuse this with the Odyssey 21, a real-life electric Halo Warthog.
