“A curved monitor gives users a fully immersive experience if viewed from the distance of 80 centimeters, as a flat monitor would cover less of a user‘s peripheral vision,” Chung Kang-il, vice president of visual display at Samsung Electronics, said at a press conference in Seoul Tuesday.
The launch of Odyssey Ark, which can be rotated, tilted and pivoted, is meant to cater to gamers’ demand for a larger screen size, multitasking while gaming, and playing both console and PC games on a single screen, Chung added.
The gaming monitor, which forms a portion of a 1,000 millimeter radius curve, features a 4K resolution using quantum mini light-emitting diodes. It also delivers a 165 Hz refresh rate and 1 millisecond response time for smooth motion and transition on the screen, according to the Seoul-based tech giant.
Odyssey Ark also enables the use of the Samsung Gaming hub, a game streaming discovery platform that gives users access to both console and personal computer games.
Moreover, the Flex Move Screen function allows users to adjust screen size, position and ratio for an optimal gaming setup.
“To millennials and younger generations, gaming is becoming an integral part of their life routine,” Chung said.
In Korea, sales of Odyssey Ark will begin on Sept. 7 at the retail price of 3.4 million won ($2,600), with preorders available beginning on Aug. 24.
Odyssey Ark is the latest addition of Samsung‘s signature monitor lineups including Odyssey and Odyssey Neo.
