Pre-orders for the "world's first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming screen" can now be placed and will run until October 23, Samsung has confirmed. The full Odyssey Ark goes on sale Australia wide from October 24 and among many standout features includes Cockpit Mode, Samsung's Quantum Matrix tech and its own controller.

Who doesn't love a first of its kind sort of dealie? Samsung's steady foray into monitor dominance has been a consistent and enjoyable one, and while the price tag on the Odyssey Ark won't be for everyone, those who do pony up are likely in for something pretty unique.

The monitor's RRP in Australia is set at $4,499 dollarydoos.

Here's the official word on the street:
Adding a new form factor to the industry-leading Odyssey lineup, the Odyssey Ark’s huge display delivers a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time (GtG[3]), plus an all new rotating Cockpit Mode and an exclusive controller, the Ark Dial – offering a riveting window into the world of gaming with impressive immersion.

The Odyssey Ark is the ultimate Samsung entertainment screen, equipped with all the necessary features to deliver premium gaming, entertainment and lifestyle experiences. A simple Wi-Fi connection transforms the Odyssey Ark into a Smart TV, giving access to popular streaming apps and free live content with no downloads or sign-ups made possible by Samsung TV Plus[4].

“We are excited to bring this unique screen to our shores to give local gamers access to a new standard of immersive gaming and a winning edge every time they play,” said Phil Gaut, Senior Director – Display & Brand Memory, Samsung Australia. “The Odyssey Ark brings together cinematic picture quality, immersive surround sound, and an incredibly flexible interface that enables gamers to compete, socialise, and multi-task during game play without missing a beat. When it’s time to hang up their headphones, gamers have access to a premium Smart TV entertainment and lifestyle experience all in one epic monitor.”

Originally unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, the groundbreaking Odyssey Ark was recognised as a CES Innovation Award Honoree.

Looks mint but the only way I'll be getting one is if Samsung offer one up in a giveaway to win :p
