Computex 2024 was inundated with artificial intelligence-related products, but amongst the new AI products coming to market, there were a few new gaming monitor announcements that may have slipped past many people's radars. One of those gaming monitors is Corsair's 34WQHD240-C, which was on display at the company's suite in Taipei, and I was lucky enough to get it demoed. The 34WQHD240-C uses Quantum Dot OLED technology, or a QD-OLED panel, which has become commonplace for new gaming monitors coming to market.

However, Corsair has specifically tuned the 34WQHD240-C with its own specifications, writing in its announcements the 34WQHD240-C will come with a glossy coating that will reduce glare when bright light sources are in the background. Additionally, the 34WQHD240-C will have a native resolution of 3440 x 1440 across 34 inches, making its pixel density 110 PPI, or pixels per inch. Furthermore, the 34WQHD240-C has a refresh rate of 240Hz and comes with NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium support.

GIGABYTE presents the world's first OLED display with 80Gbps video bandwidth

Kosta Andreadis | Jun 10, 2024 6:58 PM CDT

At Computex 2024, we got to go hands-on with GIGABYTE products, including its latest display range. GIGABYTE has many vibrant OLED displays available now and on the horizon, including a setup that lets you daisy chain multiple monitors over a single DisplayPort 2.1 connection.

GIGABYTE presents the world's first OLED display with 80Gbps video bandwidth

GIGABYTE told us that the AORUS F032U2P, a 4K 240 Hz OLED display, is the world's first DisplayPort 2.1 UHBR20 display with an industry-leading 80Gbps bandwidth. This allows you to daisy-chain up to four displays, each with a 4K 120 Hz refresh rate over a single DisplayPort 2.1 cable. Impressive stuff, though it feels like this would work best with a next-gen GeForce RTX 5080 or 5090.

With the shift to OLED for its premium displays, the company announced that its AORUS brand for enthusiast gamers would shift to OLED panel technology for all its displays going forward.

ASRock was kind enough to give me a tour of their booth at Computex 2024 where they had on display two OLED gaming monitors that caught my attention. The PG032UFS2B and the PG027QFS, a 32-inch model and a 27-inch model. Firstly, the PG032UFS2B caught my attention for its dual-mode, which enables users to switch between 3840 x 2160 (UHD) at 2240Hz refresh rate and 1920 x 1080 (FHD) at 480Hz with a simple button press.

This feature is particularly good for users that want more frames in competitive titles such as Valorant and Overwatch 2, while also wanting the visual fidelity for other titles that don't require a lot of frames, such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Elden Ring and others. As for the other specifications, the PG032UFS2B gas a 0.03 ms response time, a typical brightness of 275 nits, 2x HDMI 2.1, 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 3x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-B, and 1x USB-C Type-C with 65w of power delivery.

This new technology was originally spotted at CES 2024, but has now been changed according MSI representatives at the MSI booth on the showroom floor. MSI describes the new version of the MEG 321URX as the "World's first true AI gaming monitor" as Sky Sight uses an AI engine to scan the game that is being played and provide the player with additional information.
