Samsung's new Odyssey Ark is an enormous 55" 165Hz gaming monitor with "cockpit mode"

15 August 2022
Cockpit mode lets you rotate the display 90° and since it is curved, in this position it arks over your head. This can also replace four monitors (three in cockpit mode).

Man, if only it was 8k, and at least 60Hz. 4k on a 55 inch is outdated. I have a Samsung RU7300, it has a curved, it's 55 inch, it's 4k, and it is now being sold at 499$. Not as much curved, but not worth paying >3000$ for more curvature, with a humongous frame-rate, which I will definitely not use for coding or text editing. I would benefit from the improve curvature, but given the same 4k resolution, it's not worth it.

        This one vs their G9. I would still go for G9.

        As it is easier on the eyes to see from left to right.. then to raise your head to see.

                I think most people are getting it wrong, technically you can get a 55 inch 4k samsung tv with mini leds 720 dimming zones and 120 hz for around 1300 usd for q85b and use as a pc monitor, (and yes, there are a few people who did that on youtube actually (with different models))
                And for that you get 4 screens with real estate of 27 inches at least according to display wars website (sorry GSM arena but it's not 22.5 inch)

                But the main advantage to the ark is curvature, because when you use a very big flat monitor corners appear distorted, washed out slightly and becomes much more far than the center of the display.

                Also for people asking for an 8k, I think it would not make much of sense, because you can't (at least as far as I know) run 8k @120+ hz so you would need to switch to a 4k mode for gaming anyway. But it would be good for productivity (with increased price) (and lower overall quality)

                  Anonymous, 15 Aug 2022Why curved display when it is 55"? Who is going to sit... moreActually curvature is the most important feature of the display, because not being curved will give image distortion and some color shift in the corners.

                    Basically an overkill. Prefer 32 inch 1440p gaming monitors with 120hz refresh rate

                      I think this monitor would only be good for certain games - with something like Elite Dangerous or flight sims. Too much screen real estate for an FPS imo

                        Anonymous, 16 Aug 2022If you buy 4 of those monitors, can you make full circle?Probably not. Couldn't find the arc length of the monitor to confirm.

                                To the best of my knowledge this would be the first 4K gaming monitor available in India, to go beyond 152Hz, most are 144 Hz.
                                Of course, available in India is the key term.

                                  for me it's still better to use 4 display than a big one.

                                  but with multiple display keyboard and mouse locked to curent display

                                      with that massive screen, it can fit built in CPU RAM and GPU like AIO PC. Why they don't? become more expensive?

                                        4K? Meh
                                        Should have been priced $5k and 8k resolution
