Next-gen entertainment with the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming monitor

With the groundbreaking Odyssey Ark, Odyssey G70B and G65B, Samsung is today unveiling its latest gaming monitors at Gamescom 2022. The Odyssey Ark, announced earlier this month, is the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming monitor . The monitor has a refresh rate of 165 Hz, a response time of 1 ms (GtG) and a new Cockpit mode.

“Gamescom is the biggest video game event in the world. So it’s the perfect place to show the global gaming community our latest innovations,” said Evert Van Camp, Display Director at Samsung Benelux. “The Odyssey Ark and the super-smart G70B and G65B open up a whole new world of possibilities in gaming. »

Odyssey Ark: the ultimate entertainment display with exceptional gaming performance
The Odyssey Ark pushes the boundaries with its unparalleled picture quality and cinematic surround sound. The world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved display fills your entire field of vision with its 1000R curve, including your peripheral vision. This is further accentuated in Cockpit mode with HAS (Height Adjustable Stand) tilt and swivel functionality. Quantum Matrix technology with Quantum Mini LED enables precise control of high density LEDs. New 14-bit processing with 16,384 black levels and a million-to-one static contrast ratio let you see every detail with perfect clarity.

Thanks to Samsung’s Matte Display and Sound Dome technology, the Odyssey Ark is the ultimate entertainment display. The matte screen features anti-glare and anti-glare protection, so you can watch, work, and play without distraction. Cinematic sound is made possible by four speakers, one in each corner, and two center woofers. The 60W 2.2.2 channel delivers the lowest tones at 45Hz of any gaming monitor or soundbar.

The Odyssey Ark offers all the features you need for the best gaming, entertainment and lifestyle experiences. Smart Hub integrates essential IoT devices and features, allowing you to manage temperature and humidity through the SmartThings app, for example. With Samsung TV Plus and a WiFi connection, you get the full Smart TV experience. It gives you access to the most popular streaming apps and free live content without downloading or signing up.

The solar-powered Ark Dial – Odyssey Ark’s exclusive remote control – allows you to quickly and easily manage all sorts of settings. Think Flex Move Screen, Multi View, Quick Settings and Game Bar[1]. The Ark Dial is equipped with a solar panel, but can also be recharged via a USB-CL connection.

Odyssey G70B & G65B: smart services and smoother gaming
The Odyssey G70B and G65B gaming monitors were also unveiled at Gamescom 2022. The G70B and G65B models are packed with smart features including the ability to create a home office environment even without a PC. You connect easily and from a single screen to different devices and IT services. Connect wirelessly to a Windows or Mac PC, use Samsung DeX or mirror your smartphone screen to the monitor with Apple AirPlay 2. Access Microsoft 365 cloud services and watch the latest series on Netflix, Amazon Prime and other major OTT (over-the-top) service providers.

In addition, the G70B and G65B are equipped with a sensitive Far Field Voice microphone. This lets you control them through voice assistants like Bixby and Amazon Alexa. The Always On Voice feature[2] allows you to communicate with Bixby. This can be done even when the monitor is off with the requested information displayed on the screen.

The G70B is available in 28 and 32 inches, with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and a response time of 1 ms (GtG). The IPS flat panel has UHD resolution, is NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible and features AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for smooth gaming.

The G65B is available in 27 and 32 inches, with a refresh rate of 240 Hz and a response time of 1 ms (GtG). The curved QHD, 1000R display features FreeSync Premium Pro for an unparalleled gaming experience that will give you a serious edge over the competition.

Both new Odyssey models also feature Game Bar, a powerful tool that allows you to quickly and easily check your game settings. Without leaving your game screen, you can change the response time, aspect ratio or Game Picture mode.

Samsung’s Odyssey Ark is now available exclusively in the E-store for 2 weeks[3] at a suggested retail price of €2,999. When launching on the E-store, you will receive a Soundbar S60B and its installation as a gift with the purchase of an Odyssey Ark.
