MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED: 34-inch 3440x1440 @ 175Hz gaming monitor
MSI has just introduced the world's second 34-inch QD-OLED gaming monitor, with the introduction of the new MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED gaming monitor.
The new MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED gaming monitor has 34-inch QD-OLED panel, with a native 3440 x 1440 resolution and super-smooth 175Hz refresh rate. MSI is using an 1800R curvature, with some MEG features baked-in: Sound Tune AI noise canceling, a KVM switch, smart crosshair, and an ambient light sensor.
Alienware recently debuted its AW3423DW (with near identical specs: 34-inch 3440 x 1440 resolution + 175Hz refresh rate with a QD-OLED panel) priced at $1400. MSI hasn't priced its new MEG 342C QD-OLED gaming monitor just yet, but we do know it has a 0.1ms GtG response time, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and around 1000 nits of brightness for HDR content and gaming.

NVIDIA announces 12 more games with DLSS, F1 22 and Hitman 3 included
NVIDIA didn't have a big Computex 2022 keynote, but it did cram in some cool things -- the best thing for me, the new 500Hz gaming monitor -- but also 12 new games with DLSS support.
The company announced that NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology is coming to two big games: F1 22 and Hitman 3. Hitman 3 gets its ray tracing update today, as well as DLSS which will help out with performance across the board on a GeForce RTX GPU.
Hitman 3 includes a big update that packs NVIDIA DLSS, ray-traced opaque reflections, ray-traced shadows, and more content for gamers to enjoy. F1 22 isn't quite here yet, launching on July 1 with both NVIDIA DLSS as well as ray-traced opaque reflections, ray-traced transparent reflections, ray-traced ambient occlusion, and ray-traced shadows.

ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz gaming monitor rocks new E-TN (Esports TN) panel
ASUS and NVIDIA have been working on the absolute bleeding-edge gaming monitor technology for many years now, with the companies hitting a huge new milestone: 500Hz.
The new ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz G-SYNC gaming monitor is not just a new 1080p gaming monitor at an even-faster refresh rate (in this case: 500Hz) but rather the companies are using a new 500Hz display designed from the ground up for esports.
The new "E-TN" (Esports TN) panel is being used for "maximum motion clarity", but there's much more: NVIDIA teases that inside of the new ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz G-SYNC gaming monitor we have: "NVIDIA G-SYNC Esports Mode with adjustable esports vibrance and of course, complete NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer support, allowing users to measure end-to-end system latency when using a NVIDIA Reflex mouse and GeForce GPU".

Samsung's new Odyssey Neo G7 monitor: Quantum Mini LED + 4K @ 165Hz
Samsung is introducing a bunch of new gaming monitors at Computex 2022, with the new Odyssey Neo G7 (S32BG75) being rolled out.
The new Samsung Odyssey Neo G7 (S32BG75) gaming monitor has a 32-inch panel, with the company tapping a Quantum Mini LED backlight with up to 1000 nits of brightness. There's Quantum HDR 200 certification here, AMD FreeSync Pro and NVIDIA G-SYNC support, and support for Low Input Lag, Refresh Rate Optimizer, Adaptive Picture, and more.
The 32-inch panel has a native 4K resolution and super-quick 165Hz refresh rate, so you'll need a beasty GPU to handle 4K @ 165FPS... NVIDIA's new flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, or AMD's new flagship Radeon RX 6950 XT graphics card. There's a slew of connectivity as well: 2 x HDMI 2.1, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4, 2 x USB-C 3.0 ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

LG's new projector: 120-inch screen from 7 inches away + 3700 lumens
LG has just unveiled its new CineBeam HU915QE projector, a new flagship Ultra Short Throw (UST) laser projector.
The new LG CineBeam HU915QE projector can project a large 120-inch screen from just 7 inches away, something its predecessor could do, but now it does it with a retina-busting 3700 ANSI lums of brightness. That's bright enough that you could enjoy a huge 120-inch screen, and still have your blinds up enjoying some sunlight.
LG says that it's using its "evolved, three-channel laser technology, which employs a separate light source for each primary (RGB) color, this new model is able to offer more vivid images even during the day compared to other conventional products with the single light source technology".

AUO teases next-gen brutally insane 480Hz laptop + desktop displays
AUO has just teased an incredible display feat: 480Hz -- yeah we're talking up to 480FPS -- during the SID Display Week 2022. Check it out:
The company teased two panels: a 24-inch 1080p 480Hz display for the desktop and a 16-inch 1080p 480Hz display for laptops. The company is only tapping a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) resolution, but all next-gen panels start at 1080p before moving up to 1440p and then 4K -- just imagine 4K @ 480Hz. AUO is tapping a TN panel with an average 1ms response time.
My problem here is that the gaming monitor world moved away from TN a while ago, where VA, IPS, Mini-LED, and especially OLED display technology are vastly superior. Still, 480FPS would be an incredible thing to see, with the company showing off CS:GO which is a game people running a 480Hz monitor would play. Mostly esports-funded and sponsored gigs where they don't get an option of what display they're using.

AMD Ryzen 6000 series CPUs get DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR certification
The world of HDMI 2.1 has been here for a while but it's mostly used on higher-end TVs and only a few gaming monitors, but DisplayPort 2.0 will soon help out... ushering in next-gen displays.
The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) announced that the very first video source and display devices that support DisplayPort UHBR (Ultra-High Bit Rate) are supported by DisplayPort 2.0, and have passed certification through the DisplayPort UHBR Certification Program.
What does this mean? Well, it means that the higher bandwidths that are supported by UHBR offer uncompressed 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K 240Hz HDR, 2 x 4K 120Hz HDR, or a bonkers 4 x 4K 60Hz HDR... all over a single DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR cable.

LG Display's gigantic OLED TV has Boba Fett overlooking Times Square
LG Display has been working with Lucasfilm's visual effects division, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and used its leading-edge OLED display technology to market The Book of Boba Fett in the middle of Times Square, New York City. Check it out:
The two companies are already knee-deep into the world of OLED displays and TVs in their everyday creative process, but with multiple OLED displays... well, the team at ILM wanted to do something different. LG explains: "An anamorphic video creates a visual illusion of the content being projected forward from a certain vantage point".
"With this technique, one can simulate 3D content on a 2D screen to provide the most immersive viewing experience. The complexity of this technique requires the utmost attention to detail, and LG Display's OLED provided this very solution, enabling the cutting-edge technology to power the video's unique visual effects".
