11/24/2022 at 11:24 am by Andreas Link – MSI has already announced a QD OLED monitor for the CES, which is said to use an OD OLED panel with 240 Hertz. It is unclear whether the panel comes from Samsung. So far, 175 hertz was available for the in-house OLED technology.
The monitor manufacturers seem to be drumming up for the CES in January early this year. After LG has already listed two OLED monitors for gamers including the price, MSI casually mentions on Twitter that they are working on Project 491C. It is said to be the world’s first QD-OLED monitor that creates 240 Hertz.
MSI does not want to reveal which panel is in the 491C. The Samsung panels with QD-OLED technology are currently 175 Hz, 34 inches (0.86 m) in size and have a resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 pixels (21:9). The panel mentioned by MSI is 49 inches (1.24 m) and thus more in the league of small LG TVs or the 45 inch (1.14 m) curved monitor for gamers discovered earlier in the week.

However, devices between 27 and 34 inches are usually preferred for a desk. This is exactly where the Ultragear 27GR95QE comes in. He wants to make 1440p with 240 hertz and a desk-compatible 27 inch (0.69 m) a success. Some would probably have preferred 2160p with 120 Hertz on 32 inches, but there is still enough room for announcements next year.
The CES 2023 in particular is likely to traditionally become the Mecca for announcements in the field of display technology. In Las Vegas, the Consumer Electronics Show will take place at the usual early date shortly after the turn of the year – from January 5, 2023 to January 8, 2023. However, the products presented there usually only go on sale in the course of the year and sometimes only towards the end of the year end of the year or not at all.
