QD-OLED Gaming Screens to Hit Greater Speeds, New Sizes in 2024


In mid-December, Samsung introduced manufacturing of two QD-OLED panels focused at avid gamers at new sizes and with greater refresh charges — a 32-inch 4K 240Hz display screen and a 27-inch 1440p 360Hz display screen. And the place new screens go, new displays are certain to comply with, beginning with the pre-CES launches of Samsung’s 32-inch G8 (G80SD) and new 27-inch G6 (G60SD), together with a refresh of the 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SD) that comes with a 5,120×1,440 240Hz panel. The 2 smaller fashions are flat, not curved.

LG additionally introduced competing UltraGear OLED shows in mid-December; they do not use the Samsung panels, but in addition now supply greater refresh charges, and are led by the dual-refresh 32-inch UltraGear 32 OLED, which does 4K at 240Hz and 1080p at 480Hz.

We have no pricing or availability past “2024.”

All Samsung OLED/QD-OLED panels supply pixel refresh charges of about 0.03ms — meaning it’s best to care extra about its absence in specs for a specific monitor relatively than its breathless emphasis in advertising supplies — and all three of the brand new Samsung displays meet VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 necessities, assist FreeSync Professional and have matte (antiglare) finishes. Each the G8 and G6 have stands that allow you to tilt, swivel, pivot, and lift or decrease the display screen.

OLED screens have sometimes been shiny, which makes them look very nice (particularly in retail shops), however utilizing them in numerous lighting could be irritating due to reflections. I count on — and welcome — a rise in matte OLED/QD-OLED screens this 12 months. 

Samsung’s Odyssey OLED G6 (G60SD) is new to the road; firms hope 360Hz, 27-inch, 1440p fashions like it’s going to appeal to esportsters — avid gamers who might need been leery of OLED/QD-OLED due to its 144Hz most refresh fee (amongst different issues) and who’ve been restricted to applied sciences with lesser picture high quality, decrease 1080p decision and/or smaller 25-inch displays.

Twin refresh expertise is not model new — Razer included it into considered one of its Blade 16 laptop computer screens final 12 months — nevertheless it’s nonetheless fairly uncommon. LG brings it to its flat UltraGear OLED 32 (32GS95UE), together with the corporate’s Pixel Sound behind-the-screen speaker expertise (with assist for DTS Digital:X). It additionally incorporates the new-ish rear and stand design, which appears like an enchancment over final 12 months’s outsized, clunky model, although the tradeoff might need been the simply accessible ports (it is unclear). LG’s antiglare coating is not universally beloved, and so they nonetheless use DisplayPort 1.4.

The UltraGear OLED 34 (34GS95QE) and 39 (39GS95QE) are each curved and replace to 240Hz refresh, however they nonetheless have 3,440×1,440 decision (meh). All of LG’s OLED displays meet DisplayHDR True Black 400, FreeSync Premium Professional and G-Sync Suitable necessities.
