In a follow-up to their August 2022 release of the Odyssey Ark curved gaming monitor, Samsung has now unveiled the successor, the Samsung Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen, for purchase in both the US and EU markets. This cutting-edge display promises an array of features designed to elevate the gaming and viewing experience.

Continuing the tradition set by its predecessor, the Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen boasts a 1000R curvature on its expansive 55" 4K (3,840 x 2,160) mini-LED panel.

Furthermore, it includes a KVM switch, simplifying the control of the aforementioned four input devices.

Under the hood, the Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen is powered by the Neural Quantum Processor Ultra and supports a host of gaming features, including FreeSync Premium Pro, VRR, Game Mode, and Eye Saver Mode. The integrated 60W 2.2.2 channel speaker system is equipped with Adaptive Sound, Dolby Atmos, and Sound Dome Technology, ensuring exceptional audio quality. The monitor operates on the Tizen platform, featuring SmartThings Hub, Multi-Device Experience, TV Plus, and Microsoft 365 integration. Users will also benefit from built-in voice assistants like Alexa and Bixby, making monitor control effortless.
