Samsung Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen specs
The Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen, like its predecessor, has a 55′′ 4K (3,840 x 2,160) mini-LED display with a 1000R curvature. The UL Glare Free matte surface on the VA panel lessens bothersome reflections.

It features compatibility for FreeSync Premium Pro, VRR, Game Mode, and Eye Saver Mode and is powered by the Neural Quantum Processor Ultra. It has a 60W 2.2.2 channel speaker system with Dolby Atmos, Sound Dome Technology, and Adaptive Sound for superb music quality. Tizen is the operating system, and it includes Microsoft 365 integration, TV Plus, Multi-Device Experience, and SmartThings Hub. Voice assistants incorporated into devices, such as Bixby and Alexa, make controlling your monitor simple.
