Samsung’s new 55-inch gaming monitor has a crazy “cockpit” mode

Samsung has launched a massive 55-inch monitor as part of its Odyssey gaming line. The curved, TV-like monitor is geared towards gamers who want the screen size of a TV with the high refresh rate and low latency of a gaming monitor. 

The Odyssey Ark (opens in new tab) features a curved display at 1000R that’s intended to wrap around and immerse the user in whatever they’re playing. It uses Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology powered by Quantum Mini-LEDs; deciphering those buzzwords suggests that the display should have greater control of tightly packed pixels, which should lead to better light control and detail. In theory, this means that the Ark should handle HDR gaming very well. Samsung uses this technology in its Neo QLED TVs, so we’re hoping for solid picture performance from its distantly related gaming cousin.
