It also features AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for tear-free gaming and HDR10+ certification reaches up to 600 nits peak brightness and has full-array local dimming. It also supports Dolby Atmos and a six-speaker 60W audio setup with four corner tweeters and two woofers.
The Gaming Monitor further allows users to watch four video streams from its four video input sources simultaneously. The connectivity features of the second-generation Odyssey Ark include Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.2, two HDMI 2.1 ports, one HDMI 2.0 port, and one DisplayPort 1.4.
