January 6th, 2023 at 4:05 p.m. by Thilo Bayer – In the PCGH Extreme community, users present all possible aspects of their PCs, including OLED displays since November 2022. PCGH shows the gaming setups of the community members.
One of the trending topics in recent years in the area of display technology has certainly been OLED, i.e. “Organic Light-Emitting Diode”. Organic light-emitting diodes are also becoming increasingly popular in the PC market, and various new gaming monitors with 240 Hz were announced for CES 2023.
The trending theme is OLED
So it’s no wonder that OLED is now also a topic in the PCGH Extreme forum. In the thread “Show me your OLED gaming setups” there are already several messages in words and pictures. If you want to show off your OLED setup yourself, use the thread on PCGH Extreme.

This makes absolute black possible, i.e. a significantly higher contrast than with LCDs. The response times are also much lower, so movements don’t smear here. OLED displays are very thin and get less warm compared to LED-LCDs. The disadvantages of OLEDs: they have aged faster than LCDs so far, so they can lose their luminosity, and there is a certain burn-in risk with static content. 2023 could be the breakthrough year for gaming monitors. There are also more and more manufacturers who rely on OLED displays for notebooks.
Note: PCGH Extreme is the community for PC mechanics. On August 20, 2007, the PC Games Hardware Extreme Forum opened its doors to interested readers for the first time on the occasion of the Games Convention 2007. In the beginning the forum was run parallel to the old PCGH forum and its content was almost exclusively about overclocking and case modding. Since 2008, PC Games Hardware Extreme has been the only forum for all PCGH community members, covering a wide range of topics. Since launch, over 520,000 topics and 10,100,000 posts have been created by more than 200,000 registered users. The [email protected] community has been very active for many years, making computing power available to fight diseases such as cancer.
