LG announced the LG 49GR85DC with a 49″ 5120×1440 240Hz 1ms curved (1000R) VA panel. It also features VRR, HDMI 2.1, and DisplayHDR 1000 support – the number of local dimming zones is not specified, but we assume it has a basic 10-zone edge-lit backlight.
Other specifications include a 2500:1 peak brightness, 450-nit typical brightness (1000-nits for HDR) and 95% DCI-P3 color gamut. It most likely uses the same TCL/CSOT VA panel as the Samsung Odyssey G9.
It will be available in early April for $1300. Keep in mind that Samsung’s G9 often goes on sale for $1,000, while the Neo G9 model with a 2048-zone mini LED FALD backlight can be found for as low as $1,450.
The LG 27GR95QE-B is a 27″ 1440p 240Hz HDR gaming monitor based on a W-OLED panel with an infinite contrast ratio thanks to per-pixel dimming, a wide 98.5% DCI-P3 color gamut and instantaneous pixel response time speed.
This is the combination of specifications many gamers have been waiting for, and while some users might have preferred a 4K model, 1440p will still look rather sharp and crisp on the monitor’s 26.5″ viewable screen with 110.8 PPI (pixels per inch).
Another advantage of 1440p is that it’s significantly less demanding to drive than 4K UHD, allowing you to maintain higher frame rates, while the difference in image quality between the two resolutions is not that noticeable in games and videos. There is a discernable difference when it comes to text and detail clarity in other applications though.
Next, the LG 27GR95QE monitor features a slim design with full ergonomic support, matte anti-glare coating and rich connectivity options with two HDMI ports, DisplayPort 1.4, a headphone jack, SPDIF-out and a dual-USB 3.0 hub.
It also supports hardware calibration and AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible VRR technologies.
LG also specifies a peak brightness of 200-nits at SDR 25% APL.
Check out our full 27GR95QE review.

MSI announced the Project 491C. It’s a 49″ super-ultrawide curved gaming monitor based on a QD-OLED panel with a 240Hz refresh rate.
More information to come.
MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED
The MSI MEG342C QD-OLED is a 34″ 3440×1440 175Hz ultrawide curved gaming monitor based on the same panel as the Dell AW3423DW and the Samsung Odyssey G85SB.
Given that MSI advertises PiP and PbP support, which isn’t available on G-SYNC modules, their model will almost certainly use FreeSync Premium and G-SYNC Compatible for variable refresh rate, just like the Odyssey OLED G8 and the Dell AW3423DWF.
Other features include Delta E < 2 factory calibration, Sound Tune AI noise canceling, Smart Crosshair, integrated KVM functionality, HDMI 2.1, USB-C (with DP Alt Mode and 65W PD) and a light sensor.
It should be available soon for $1,100 and have a 3-year pixel warranty that covers burn-in.
MSI MEG Artymis 341
The MSI MEG Artymis 341 is a 34″ 3440×1440 200Hz ultrawide monitor with a steep 1000R curvature (VA panel assumed).
It features an AMLED backlight (mini LED backlight tuned by AU Optronics) with a 1,000-nit peak brightness and DisplayHDR 1000 certification. It’s unknown how many dimming zones there are at the moment.
The monitor also features QD Premium color (full Adobe RGB gamut coverage assumed), Delta E ≤ 2 factory calibration and a rapid 1ms GtG pixel response time speed. No word on pricing, while all the available information regarding the release date is ‘sometime in 2022.’
Philips Evnia Gaming Monitors
Philips revealed a new Evnia lineup of gaming monitors, including the 34M2C8600 ultrawide model based on the popular 34″ 3440×1440 QD-OLED panel.
Philips’ model doesn’t feature the G-SYNC module, but basic Adaptive-Sync support, but it goes up to 175Hz. It also has a USB-C port with 90W PD and a USB hub, but no HDMI 2.1.
It’s available for pre-order for $1,300.
Another interesting model is the Philips 42M2N8900 42″ 4K 120Hz (138Hz OC) gaming monitor based on LG’s W-OLED panel. Unlike ASUS’ model, it has a USB-C port with 90W PD and a stand with height, tilt and swivel adjustment! It’s available for $1400.
Philips also announced the 27M2CS500W model with a 27″ 1440p 240Hz 1000R curved VA panel, but no word on other specifications, such as HDR support and pixel response time speed. It will also be available in January 2023, for €579.
Lastly, there’s the 34M2C7600MV 34″ 3440×1440 165Hz 1500R curved VA monitor with an 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight and DisplayHDR 1400.
Philips also specifies a 2.5ms GtG pixel response time speed, a 720-nit SDR peak brightness, 97% DCI-P3 color gamut, USB-C with 90W PD, two HDMI 2.1 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, built-in KVM and PiP/PbP support, a USB hub, integrated speakers and an ergonomic stand.
The 34M2C7600MV is available for $1300. ViewSonic offers a monitor based on the same panel (with 200Hz OC) for $1500, the XG341C-2K.
The prices of all models are quite expensive and will definitely need to be much lower in order to compete against the alternatives.
All models will feature Philips’ Ambiglow RGB technology that synchronizes with on-screen content and reflects off of the wall for atmospheric ambient lighting.
The Philips 27E1N8900 features a 26.9″ 4K OLED panel with a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz, instantaneous pixel response time speed and an infinite contrast ratio.
Other specifications include a 250-nit peak brightness for a 100% white window and a peak brightness of 540-nits, thus earning VESA’s DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification.
The monitor also has true 10-bit color depth support, 178° wide viewing angles, Delta E < 1 factory calibration, and a wide color gamut covering 99.7% DCI-P3 and 99.6% Adobe RGB color spaces; equivalent to 150% sRGB gamut size with the optional sRGB emulation mode available too.
Further, the stand offers full ergonomic support and extensive connectivity options, including DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports, USB-C (DP Alt Mode and 90W PD), a headphone jack, a quad-USB 3.0 hub and a built-in KVM switch.
It’s now available for $1,100.
The Gigabyte S55U is a 55″ 4K 120Hz gaming monitor based on a VA panel with a 5000:1 contrast ratio, 500-nit typical and 1500-nit peak brightness, a wide 96% DCI-P3 color gamut and 132 dimming zones. The specified response time speed is 2ms GtG minimum and 5ms GtG average.
It also has integrated Andriod OS and Google Assistant. Other features include FreeSync, Aim Stabilizer Sync, Black Equalizer and rich connectivity options, including two HDMI 2.1 ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a USB hub, a headphone jack, RJ45, dual 10W integrated speakers, Bluetooth and WiFi.
It’s now available for $1,000. Due to its low dimming zones count and since you cannot use VRR and local dimming at the same time, we recommend getting another 55″ TV, such as Samsung’s QN90A and S95B or LG’s C2.
Samsung Odyssey OLED G9
The Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC) is a 49″ 5120×1440 240Hz super-ultrawide gaming monitor with a QD-OLED panel, sporting a wide color gamut, an infinite contrast ratio and an instantaneous pixel response time speed.
Unlike the other Odyssey curved monitors, the G95SC has a more moderate 1800R screen curvature for added immersion.
The monitor will also feature Samsung’s Smart Hub for streaming services.
More information to come, but expect variable refresh rate support, triangular RGB subpixel layout and a semi-glossy panel coating like the one on the AW3423DW/F.
Early reviews show that the 49″ QD-OLED panel has a bit different subpixel shape, resulting in less text fringing and better clarity. It seems that the screen coating is also a bit different, while the brightness performance remains similar to the first gen QD-OLED panels (~250-nits full white, ~1000-nits peak for < 3% windows).
Update: It’s now up for pre-order in Canada for $2,800. The release date is June 26.
At SID Display Week, Samsung exhibited the Samsung OLED G9, the new 77″ QD-OLED TV and the 2nd generation 34″ 3440×1440 QD-OLED panel (with a possibly higher 240Hz refresh rate). The new QD-OLED panels boast even higher brightness and better burn-in resistance. Samsung even mentions up to 2000-nits of peak brightness, though we believe this mainly applies to the 77″ model.
Samsung Odyssey Neo G9
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 (G95NC) is a larger 57″ super-ultrawide gaming monitor with a 7680×2160 resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate and a quantum-dot enhanced mini LED FALD backlight.
Currently, the number of dimming zones is unknown, but Samsung specifies DisplayHDR 1000, indicating a peak brightness of at least 1,000-nits.
The monitor is basically equivalent to two 31.5″ 4K monitors side by side without the bezels in between them, which brings the pixel density to 140 PPI.
Next, it will have a DisplayPort 2.1 input, a 1000R screen curvature and variable refresh rate support.
We’ll update the article as soon as more information is available!
Samsung ViewFinity S9
Samsung also revealed a 27″ 5K monitor, the Samsung ViewFinity S9 (S90PC).
It has a wide 99% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, Delta E < 2 factory calibration, a matte screen coating, and Color Calibration Engine which allows you to adjust white balance and gamma via a smartphone application.
We assume it’s using a 60Hz IPS panel. The monitor also has a 4K SlimFit camera, Samsung Smart Hub and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity.
More info to come!
Samsung Odyssey Neo G7 S43CG70
Samsung announced a 43″ 4K 144Hz gaming monitor with a flat-screen VA panel and a QDEF (quantum dot enhanced film) layer sporting a high native contrast ratio, a wide 95% DCI-P3 color gamut and 1ms MPRT (GtG response time not specified).
The Samsung S43CG70 also features a 360-zone mini LED FALD backlight, DisplayHDR 600 certification, HDR10+ Gaming support and a 600-nit peak brightness.
Note that the monitor uses a BGR subpixel layout, so text fringing is expected in certain applications.
Other features include VRR support (48-144Hz), Samsung’s built-in smart features (DeX, Microsoft Office 365, streaming services, etc.), WiFi and Bluetooth.
The stand is tilt-only, while the screen has 200x200mm VESA mount compatibility and a matte anti-glare coating against reflections.
Connectivity options include DP 1.4 with DSC, two HDMI 2.1 ports, RJ45, a headphone jack and a dual-USB 3.0 hub. You also get a remote controller.
It’s now available for $1,000.
Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 (G85SB)
Samsung will also release a monitor based on the same QD-OLED panel as the Dell AW3423DW, the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 G85SB. It will have the same specifications, but feature Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync Premium, G-SYNC Compatible) variable refresh rate technology instead of a dedicated G-SYNC module.
It seems that the Samsung OLED G8 will have a slimmer design than Dell’s model and feature micro-HDMI 2.1, mini-DisplayPort 1.4 and USB-C connectivity options, along with dual 5W integrated speakers and CoreSync+ RGB lighting at the rear.
Additionally, the monitor will have integrated smart features (Samsung Smart Hub and Gaming Hub) for browsing and streaming video content and games.
It’s now available for $1500. Check out our review for more details.
Acer XV275K P3
The Acer XV275K P3 is a 27″ 4K 160Hz IPS monitor with a 576-zone mini LED FALD backlight, a 1000-nit peak brightness, 1ms GtG response time speed, and 99% Adobe RGB color gamut.
It also features a robust design with full ergonomic support and rich connectivity options, including DP 1.4, two HDMI 2.1 ports, built-in KVM, a USB hub, USB-C with DP Alt Mode and 90W PD and a headphone jack.
It will be available in Q2 2023, but there’s no word on the exact pricing yet.
Update: It’s now available for $800.
Acer XR272U P
Acer revealed a new 27″ 1440p 170Hz gaming monitor based on an IPS panel with a subtle 2900R curvature.
Other specifications include the standard sRGB color gamut, 178° viewing angles, 8-bit color depth, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 400-nit peak brightness.
As for connectivity, there are two HDMI 2.0 ports, Displayport 1.4, USB-C with (DP 1.4 Alt Mode, 65W PD), a quad-USB 3.0 hub, a headphone jack and dual 2W integrated speakers, while the stand offers full ergonomic support.
It’s now available for $250 – $320.
Acer Nitro XZ396QUP
The Acer XZ396QU P is a 38.5″ monitor with a 2560×1440 screen resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 76 PPI (pixels per inch), which falls in-between that of 32″ 1080p (70PPI) and 27″ 1080p (81 PPI) displays.
It uses a 3000R curved VA panel with DisplayHDR 400, FreeSync Premium, 1ms MPRT and a 165Hz refresh rate (170Hz OC).
It’s now available for ~$550.
Acer Predator X32 FP
The Acer Predator X32FP is probably one of the most anticipated monitors that’s been recently announced. It’s based on a fast IPS panel by AU Optronics, sporting a rapid 1ms GtG response time speed, 4K UHD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate.
Further, it has a wide 99% Adobe RGB color gamut coverage (with an available sRGB mode), Delta E < 2 factory calibration and a 576-zone mini LED local dimming solution with a peak brightness of 1,200-nits and DisplayHDR 1000 certification.
The monitor supports Adaptive-Sync, allowing for both AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible variable refresh rate.
Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, two HDMI 2.1 ports, USB-C (DP 1.4 Alt Mode, 90W PD), a USB 3.0 hub, a headphone jack, dual 7W integrated speakers and a built-in KVM switch, while the design offers VESA, tilt, height and swivel adjustments.
Similar specs are offered by the more expensive ASUS PG32UQX, though it has a more complex 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight with a higher peak brightness.
However, the X32FP is based on a faster panel and since it doesn’t have a G-SYNC module, you’ll get HDMI 2.1, USB-C, PiP/PbP support and no integrated fan (which can be noisy and fail after some time) at a lower price.
Update: It’s now available for ~$1250 – $1500. Keep in mind that Innocn offers the 32M2V with a 32″ 4K 144Hz IPS panel and an 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight for $1000! So, we recommend checking out both our 32M2V and X32FP reviews for more information.
Acer Predator X32
Just like the ASUS PG32UQXE and the HP Omen 32u, the Acer Predator X32 is based on a 32″ 4K 144Hz (160Hz OC) IPS panel with a 576-zone mini LED FALD backlight, full Adobe RGB gamut coverage and G-SYNC Ultimate.
In comparison to the X32 FP variant, the X32 doesn’t have HDMI 2.1 or USB-C connectivity options. Moreover, the pixel response time speed is not specified.
The ASUS PG32UQXE variant specifies HDMI 2.1, but we don’t know what features and bandwidth it will support since HDMI 2.0 has been essentially renamed to HDMI 2.1 thus causing confusion.
The X32 should be available in Q3 2022 for ~$2,000. Expect similar pricing/release date for the PG32UQXE and Omen 32u models as well.
AOC released a 27″ 1440p 240Hz IPS gaming monitor with a 576-zone mini LED FALD backlight, DisplayHDR 1000 with a 1200-nit peak brightness, a fast 1ms GtG response time speed, a fully ergonomic stand, built-in KVM and rich connectivity options, including a USB-C port with 65W PD.
It’s available for $1,050.
The AOC AGON AG275QXN is the first gaming monitor announced with a flat-screen VA panel and a 1ms GtG pixel response time speed. It’s a 27″ 1440p 165Hz display DisplayHDR 400 and FreeSync support.
It’s unclear which VA panel the monitor is using and, of course, it remains yet to be seen if it’s just a misleading measure achieved by unrealistic test conditions. This at least gives some hope to those who want a VA monitor with a fast response time speed, but don’t like the aggressively curved Samsung models.
Check out AOC’s product page for more information.
Update: Sadly, there are already reviews that report slow pixel response time speed, resulting in the usual VA smearing. So, the specified 1ms GtG response time is very misleading.
They also announced a 240Hz variant, the AG275QZN – also with a slow pixel response time speed typical for VA panels.
AOC Porsche Design AGON PRO PD32M
The AOC PD32M is based on a 31.5″ 4K 144Hz IPS panel by Innolux with a rapid 1ms GtG pixel response time speed and a 97% DCI-P3 color gamut.
It also features an 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight with DisplayHDR 1400 certification, meaning it’s capable of reaching over 1,400-nits of peak brightness and 600-nits sustained.
Further, it supports variable refresh rate via FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible technologies with a 48-144Hz dynamic range.
The Porsche-inspired design boasts premium build quality with versatile ergonomics, customizable Light FX RGB lighting and two integrated headset holders.
Connectivity options are abundant and include DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, two HDMI 2.1 ports, a USB-C port with DP 1.4 Alt Mode and 90W PD, a quad-USB 3.0 hub, a headphone jack, two 8W integrated speakers and a built-in KVM switch (PiP and PbP supported as well).
It’s available for $1,800.
You should also note that AOC’s first mini LED display, the AG274QXM, has a few major issues, such as not using a flicker-free backlight, not being able to use local dimming in SDR mode and lack of an sRGB emulation mode. We hope those were all addressed on this model, so you might want to wait for reviews before buying one.
AOC AGON AG274QGM
The AOC AG274QGM, along with the MSI MEG271Q and the ViewSonic XG272G-2K are the first 27″ 1440p 300Hz gaming monitors with a mini LED backlight.
Additionally, the monitors will feature G-SYNC Ultimate and have a 576-zone full-array local dimming solution. Other specs include a 98% DCI-P3 color gamut and DisplayHDR 1000 certification.
These three new G-SYNC monitors will also feature Reflex Latency Analyzer, the new built-in Digital Vibrance feature and ‘Dual-Format’ that allows you to display the image in a 25″ 1080p format.
The AOC Q24G2 is a 24″ 1440p 165Hz gaming monitor based on an IPS panel by BOE with 99% sRGB color gamut, a 350-nit peak brightness, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, FreeSync support and MBR.
It’s actually the first 24″ 1440p monitor with a high refresh rate and an IPS panel, which many gamers, who find 27″ sized screens to be too big and 1080p resolution too low, have been waiting for.

It also boasts a fully ergonomic stand and rich connectivity options, including DP 1.4 with DSC, two HDMI 2.1 ports, USB-C (DP Alt Mode, 90W PD), a dual-USB 3.0 hub and a headphone jack.
No word on official pricing and availability yet, though it’s been seen going for around $730 in China.

ViewSonic ELITE XG341C-2K
ViewSonic announced a new ultrawide gaming monitor with a 34″ 3440×1440 curved (1500R) panel and an 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight, the XG341C-2K.
Other specifications include DisplayHDR 1400, 97% DCI-P3 gamut coverage, 165Hz (overclockable to 200Hz), FreeSync Premium Pro support, built-in KVM, HDMI 2.1 and USB-C with 90W PD.
ViewSonic also specifies a 1ms MPRT response time speed, but GtG and panel type remain unknown at the moment. The monitor should be available in November 2022 for $1,500.
‘Console gaming compatibility with HDMI 2.1’ is also specified.
Update: It’s now up on B&H. Sadly, it has the usual VA panel issues, such as VRR brightness flickering and slow response time. On top of that, it has issues with overclocking, no sRGB mode, locked brightness in SDR with local dimming, blooming artifacts and locked brightness with VRR (unless using HDMI 2.1 VRR).
ViewSonic Elite XG272-2K
ViewSonic also announced the XG272-2K model with a 27″ 1440p 400Hz 1ms IPS panel! It will feature FreeSync Premium Pro and G-SYNC Compatible certifications for smooth VRR performance as well as a USB-C port with 90W PD and DP Alt Mode.
It will be available in Q4 2023, but the price is unknown at the moment.
NZXT entered the monitor market with four Canvas models:
- NZXT Canvas 27Q – 27″ 1440p 165Hz IPS 99% sRGB
- NZXT Canvas 32Q Curved – 32″ 1440p 165Hz VA 99% sRGB
- NZXT Canvas 25F – 25″ 1080p 240Hz 89% DCI-P3
- NZXT Canvas 27F – 27″ 1080p 240Hz 89% DCI-P3
All four models can be configured with black or white panel and stand, and can be purchased with or without the stand, or with a single or dual monitor arm.
Eve / Dough Monitors
Dough (previously known as Eve) announced a 27″ 1440p 240Hz monitor based on LG’s W-OLED panel. Unlike the LG 27GR95QE and the ASUS PG27AQDM with matte anti-glare screen coatings, the Dough Spectrum ES07E2D will feature a glossy screen surface for a more vivid (but also more reflective) image quality.
However, we’d like to warn you about purchased Dough / Eve monitors that were never shipped to users and unpaid refunds. Plenty of their customers reported not receiving monitors or refunds even for the old 2020 Spectrum models.
The ES07E2D is available for pre-order for $650, so if you want to take the risk, that’s up to you, but you should definitely check out the experiences of their users first, on their own forum and elsewhere.
HP E45c G5
HP announced a 44.5″ 5120×1440 165Hz ultrawide monitor with a 1500R curved VA panel, sporting a 3000:1 contrast ratio, a 3ms GtG specified response time speed, a 400-nit peak brightness and 99% sRGB color gamut.
The monitor is basically equivalent to two 24″ 2560×1440 monitors side by side without the bezels in between them, with a pixel density of roughly 120 PPI.
Moving on, the monitor offers an ergonomic stand with height, tilt and swivel adjustments, while connectivity options include DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, USB-C (DP Alt Mode, 65W PD), a quad-USB hub and RJ45.
The release date is unknown at the moment, while the price is set at £1499.
KTC M27P20P & M27T20
The KTC M27P20P is a 27″ 4K 160Hz IPS gaming monitor with a 576-zone mini LED FALD backlight, based on the same panel as the Cooler Master Tempest GP27U. It also goes for $800, but has the same issues the GP27U before its firmware update – VRR only works up to 144Hz and local dimming and VRR cannot work simultaneously, though KTC says they will release a firmware update.
The KTC M27T20 is a 27″ 1440p 165Hz 576-zone mini LED FALD model with the same firmware issues. Unlike the Tempest GP27Q, it has a VA panel with a higher contrast ratio. It even has a fast pixel response time speed, which is surprising for a VA panel. Sadly, it has the same VRR/local dimming issue as the M27P20P model. Check out our full review for more information.
Innocn 32M2V & 27M2V
The Innocn 27M2V is a 27″ 4K 160Hz 1ms IPS gaming monitor with a wide 99% DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color gamut, DisplayHDR 1000 and 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight, HDMI 2.1, USB-C (90W PD) and a fully ergonomic stand. It goes for $800.
The Innocn 32M2V is the 32″ version of the 27M2V for $1,000.
