The MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED monitor ushers in quantum dot technology, seeking more adoption among several PC manufacturers over the last several months. The company's new monitor will also offer a super-fast 0.1-millisecond response time and a stunning 175Hz refresh rate.

Samsung will also release the company's 34-inch monitor utilizing the QD-OLED technology, called the Odyssey G8QNB, which the company first introduced earlier this year at CES 2022. There are still no details on the pricing and release date for the company's model.
