Back in April MSI's list of upcoming OLED gaming monitors leaked online, revealing the incoming MAG 271QPX E2, which has now been confirmed as MSI had the monitor in the flesh at its booth. The new monitor measures 26.5-inches, has a 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate, and a 0.03ms response time. It appears the difference between the MAG 271QPX and the MAG 271QPX E2 is the refresh rate, as the 271QPX has a blistering fast 360Hz refresh rate, while the E2 has a 240Hz.

The MAG 271QPX E2 sports Samsung's third-generation QD-OLED panel, which offers gorgeous, vibrant colors that are paired perfectly with the extremely deep blacks. As with all of MSI's OLED gaming monitors they arrive with a three-year warranty and a slew of features to mitigate against burn-in.

Introducing, the MEG 321URX, a QD-OLED gaming monitor that arrives with a 3840 x 2160p resolution, 240Hz refresh rate and a 0.03ms response time. While those specifications are certainly impressive, and is something I have complimented MSI for in my review of the display, it's not the aspect of the monitor that is capable of causing an uproar. The model showcased at Computex 2024 featured the same specifications, but with a few key changes and that was the inclusion of a light bar and what MSI calls AI Sky Sight.

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.

As for what generation of QD-OLED panel the MPG 341CQPX, reports indicate that it features Samsung's Gen 1.5 pixel technology, which means text fringing may be an issue, similar to the text issues we have seen in some of Samsung's early generation OLED panels.

Jak Connor | Jun 3, 2024 2:35 AM CDT

We are only a matter of hours away from Computex 2024 officially starting, but we have managed to get a sneak peak at what Cooler Master has in store for the trade show in terms of new gaming monitor offerings.

Cooler Master to announce behemoth 57-inch dual 4K gaming monitor at Computex 2024

The primarily cooling and PC case manufacturer is showcasing a behemoth gaming monitor at their booth this year, and at the time of the sighting there wasn't any specification information on the product available. However, the currently unannounced gaming monitor will measure 57-inches and is a Dual UHD gaming panel, which means its resolution will be 7680 x 2160, making it dual 4K, or DUHD.

Additionally, the back of the monitor revealed the curvature which is 1000R - a very extreme, but necessary curvature considering the overall size of the display. Due to the lack of official details on the new display I had to do some digging into what panel is being used here. It appears Cooler Master is using the same 57-inch panel that is present in the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, which is also a dual 4K panel that uses Quantum Mini-LED.
