Two companies have announced the upcoming OLED gaming monitors and both have claimed to be the first to do so, which is still technically correct.
 
Earlier this week we reported on an OLED 27-inch gaming monitor with 240 Hz refresh rate. That’s a relatively small panel with a resolution of 2560×1440, but it is worth reminding these are still early days for small OLEDs, or should one say the very beginning of it. Turns out LG also has an ultra-wide OLED panel coming. It is of much bigger diameter of 45 inch, but the resolution is still 3440×1440. It’s a curved display (800R) and also features OLED 240 Hz panel. LG is advertising this WHQD monitor with 0.03 ms response time.
 
According to the product page this monitor will retail at $1,699.99, and it can be preordered starting from December 12th. LG expects to ship this monitor by December 28th.

MSI SUPER ultra-wide OLED

 
Interestingly, this is not the only OLED panel being announced today. MSI is starting their pre-CES 2023 announcement with Project 491C, a new super ultra-wide monitor with QD-OLED 240Hz panel. The name suggests it’s a 49-inch panel, but the resolution was not confirmed yet. MSI is not providing any further details. The only thing that was confirmed is that this monitor received a CES Innovation Award ahead of the show.
 
The pricing is what I find to be a little too high.

    At least it's better than 27" but the price still is high and while blacks on an OLED are amazing, ultra wide monitors are not really the best way to watch movies and shows that are made for a more traditional layout.

    Are people actually buying these "super" ultra wides with horrible resolutions for their respective sizes? 3440x1440 is going to look AWFUL at 45inches. Just give us a proper panel for once and not flood the market with gimmicks/false advertising

    As long as your popular enough, you can get away with anything.

    It wouldn’t look awful. It’s still an image that is above HD. I do feel that better monitors are on the market but it’s far from awful.

    Of course back in my day we ran Quake at 640x480 on our 3DFX Voodoo graphics cards and were blown away by it…

    I have a 3440x1440 that is the same height as a 27” monitor even though it is considered a 32” because of the diagonal measurement.

    If there is a 45” 3440x1440, those pixels are going to be relatively large. Not sure how great that will be, soni can’t wait to see the third party testing on how well it works.

    Eh, I just run two Samsung 27" 3840x2160 displays and call it good. The lack of bezel between the real estate of two displays and the lower resolution isn't worth it to me.
