Computex 2022 has already unveiled some pretty exciting display tech this year, with NVIDIA announcing the world’s first ASUS 500Hz gaming monitor. However, news that has potentially snuck under the radar is MSI’s new QD-OLED gaming monitor?
While there was no unveiling of this monitor, MSI’s Computex virtual booth does showcase a picture of a new-look 34-inch ultrawide gaming monitor labeled “MSI 342C QD-OLED”.
While there is little information regarding this display, we expect it to feature a large 1800R 34-inch curved 3440 x 1440 QD-OLED panel, 139% sRGB color gamut (99.3% DCI-P3/97.8% Adobe RGB), and color accuracy of DeltaE <2.
Further specs will most likely include a 175Hz refresh rate, low 0.1ms GTG response time, and, thanks to its MEG pedigree, a plethora of additional gaming-tailored features which include; KVM switch, smart crosshair, sound tune AI noise canceling, and more.
