Samsung Launches Curved 55-Inch Odyssey Ark Gaming Monitor at $3,499

Samsung’s Odyssey Ark Gaming Monitor is out now with specs, pricing and pre-orders open. The gigantic 55-inch curved gaming monitor captured the imagination of many at CES 2022, so it’s good to finally see it slated for retail. Rightly described as a “personal game theater,” the monitor is available for pre-order for $3,499 and will ship in September. There are many things to digest when it comes to specs, so I’ve summarized the main points below.

Headline specs are pretty impressive, but they’re conspicuously missing at least two metrics: maximum luminance and color gamut measurements.
