Cooler Master Tempest GP2711
Cooler Master announced a new mini LED model, the Tempest GP2711. The monitor is based on a 27″ 1440p 165Hz flat-screen VA panel with a 4ms GtG response time speed, 576-zone mini LED FALD backlight, DisplayHDR 1000, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, 95% DCI-P3 gamut coverage (93.5% Adobe RGB) and delta E < 2 factory calibration.

It also features an integrated heatsink instead of cooling fans and comes with an extended 4-year warranty (might vary from region to region).
The Cooler Master Tempest GP2711 will be available in Q1 2024 for ~$450.
Note that there’s another Cooler Master model with a similar name, the GM2711S, which doesn’t have a mini LED backlight but uses a 27″ 1440p 180Hz 1ms IPS ART panel by AUO.
The ASRock PG32UMF features a 31.5″ 4K 144Hz IPS panel with an 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight, DisplayHDR 1400 (600-nits typical, 1400-nits peak), 97% DCI-P3 color gamut and VRR support.
Connectivity options include DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, USB-C with DP 1.4 Alt Mode and 90W PD and a quad-USB 3.0 hub.
No word on pricing and availability yet.

ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM
At Gamescom, ASUS revealed the ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM based on a 31.5″ 4K 240Hz QD-OLED panel by Samsung.
Besides the infinite contrast ratio and instantaneous pixel response time, the monitor also offers a high peak brightness of up to 1000-nits for 3% highlights in HDR and 250-nits for a full-white field in both HDR and SDR with Uniform Brightness enabled.
The second-gen Samsung QD-OLED panel also uses a slightly different subpixel layout for better text clarity, which will in addition to the display’s high pixel density minimize text fringing associated with these panels. It also has a semi-glossy screen finish for clearer image quality in comparison to matte coatings.
Just like the ASUS PG27AQDM, it will feature a heatsink instead of a fan for cooling.
Connectivity options include DP 1.4 with DSC, HDMI 2.1, USB-C, a dual-USB hub, a headphone jack and SPDIF audio. VRR is also supported via HDMI 2.1 VRR, FreeSync Premium and G-SYNC Compatible. It’s also HDR-400 True Black certified.
The release date could be as soon as Q1 2024, but there’s no word on pricing yet.
ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG34WCDM
ASUS also announced the PG34WCDM 34″ 3440×1440 240Hz based on LG’s W-OLED panel with a steep 800R screen curvature and improved HDR brightness performance of 1300-nits peak for 3% window size and 650-nits for 10%.
Unlike the PG32UCDM, the PG34WCM uses a W-OLED panel and has a lower pixel density, so text fringing will still be an issue. Moreover, it uses a matte anti-glare coating that’s great at preventing reflections but adds graininess to the image.
The monitor also features a heatsink, HDR-400 True Black certification and VRR support (FreeSync Premium Pro, G-SYNC Compatible, HDMI 2.1 VRR).
Connectivity options include DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, USB-C and built-in KVM.
The release date could be as soon as Q1 2024, but there’s no word on pricing yet.
ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD
ASUS introduced their first monitor with a QD-OLED panel, the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD.
It features a 0.03ms response time speed, a 144Hz refresh rate, a 5120×1440 screen resolution, a 1,000-nit peak brightness, a 1800R screen curvature and an integrated heatsink for better burn-in resistance and higher brightness.
According to some reports, the monitor might also have a built-in KVM functionality and a USB-C port with 90W PD and DP Alt Mode (in addition to HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4 ports).
Update: It will be available in Q4 2023 for ~1700€. You can already get the OLED G9 with the higher 240Hz resolution for a similar price.
ASUS ROG Swift PG38UQ
The ASUS ROG Swift PG38UQ is the first 38″ sized monitor with the regular 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, perfect for those who have been waiting for something in-between the more popular 32″ and 42″ monitor sizes.
It’s based on an IPS panel with a fast 1ms GtG pixel response time speed, a wide 98% DCI-P3 color gamut and DisplayHDR 600 certification, indicating a peak brightness of 600-nits and some sort of (most likely edge-lit) local dimming.
Further, it has 4K UHD resolution, which will look very sharp even at this screen size due to the high pixel density of roughly 116 PPI (pixels per inch).
Variable refresh rate is supported via AMD FreeSync, NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and HDMI 2.1 VRR, as well as 4K 120Hz upscaling for consoles.
No word on pricing yet, while the release date should be in Q3 2023.
Update: It’s now available for $1000.
ASUS ROG Swift Pro PG248QP
The ASUS ROG Swift Pro PG248QP is a 24.1″ 1080p gaming monitor based on AUO’s E-TN (Esports TN) panel with an overclockable refresh rate of 540Hz!

Connectivity options include DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, micro HDMI 2.1, a dual USB-C hub and 5W built-in speakers, while the ultra-slim design includes tilt and height adjustments.
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).
Samsung will also release the G93SC variant without the built-in smart features in Q3 2023, but pricing is currently unknown.

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 already released and reviewed 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.

It goes for only $310, which makes it the cheapest FALD display yet. Remember that the first FALD models, such as the PG27UQ with 384 dimming zones went for $2,000 when they were released, so we’ve come a long way and are finally seeing budget HDR displays.
AOC AGON AG274QGM
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.
No word on pricing and release date yet though, so stay tuned.
Update: After being successful in China, AOC will soon release the Q24G2 model in Europe. No word on US availability yet.

No word on pricing and availability yet.
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.
ES07E3F & ES07E3D
Dough also announced two 31.5″ 4K 240Hz OLED Spectrum Black monitors, the ES07E3D with a glossy screen surface and the ES07E3F model with a matte anti-glare coating.
Other specifications include instantaneous response time, infinite contrast ratio, 150-nits full-field white and 450-nits peak brightness for SDR, 1000-nits peak for 3% white window in HDR, 98.5% DCI-P3 gamut coverage and Delta E < 1 factory calibration.
It will also feature VRR and BFI (Black Frame Insertion) support. Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.1 ports, DP 1.4 with DSC, USB-C with DP Alt Mode and 100W PD, two USB-C data ports, two USB-A ports, a headphone jack and built-in KVM functionality, while the ultra-thin design offers full ergonomic support.
The monitor also features Gorilla Glass with the DXC Anti-Reflective treatment for better reflection handling, support for pixel-perfect integer scaling and a 3-year warranty (2-year warranty for burn-in, zero bright dot pixel policy).
You will be able to pre-order the ES07E3F for $700 and the ES07E3D for $800, while the full price will be $1100 and $1300, respectively. It will most likely be available in Q3 2024.
It’s unclear if Dough will be using Samsung’s or LG’s 31.5″ 4K 240Hz panel, though they are not advertising the DFR (Dynamic Frequency and Resolution) feature of the LG panel that allows for 1080p 480Hz.
Again, check the links above about previous Eve / Dough users not receiving refunds and getting delayed shipping before deciding to pre-order. Note that we’ll most likely be seeing this panel in monitors by other manufacturers around the same time, though probably not as feature-packed and without the glossy option. Either way, we only recommend considering buying these Dough monitors once they’re available on Amazon, Newegg and other retailers.
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.
KTC G42P5, M32P10 ad M32P10S
KTC released a 42″ 4K 138Hz OLED display, the G42P5, and a 32″ 4K 144Hz IPS gaming monitor with an 1152-zone mini LED FALD backlight, the M32P10. The M32P10 even has more LEDs (4608) in comparison to the 1152-zone alternatives, such as the Innocn 32M2V (2304), which should result in a higher brightness.
They also announced the KTC M32P10S, the first 32″ 4K 165Hz mini LED gaming monitor with a VA panel.
It uses the same backlight as the M32P10 with an 1152-zone FALD (4608 LEDs) solution, 99% Adobe RGB and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut, DisplayHDR 1000, HDMI 2.1, DP 1.4 and USB-C (45W PD) connectivity as well as a fully ergonomic stand.
Its VA panel should help deliver even deeper blacks with less blooming artifacts thanks to the high native contrast ratio, but it remains to be seen how it will perform in terms of pixel response time speed.
No word on release date yet, while the price should be around $1300.
That’s all the information we have so far on these displays, but we’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on any developments.
27″ 4K 160Hz 5088-zone Mini LED Gaming Monitor
