Launching in the first half of 2024

And very interesting: "This next generation QD-OLED panel features a new optimized pixel layout for better text clarity"

And it's cooled without a fan, the rear consists of a graphene film over the back of the panel to transfer heat into the heatsink with passive airflow

Wow, that I'm sure will be astonishing. My one gripe with the C2 is the text clarity issue, so if that was improved it would be fantastic - let alone with 240Hz on top.

Having said that, there's no way I'm spending that amount on a monitor, and even if I suddenly had the cash spare I'd be really anxious about QC - spending that much it would have to be absolutely perfect.

That's pushing the envelope in terms of technology, whilst exciting I wouldn't be in a rush to get it as:

a) It's going to cost an arm, leg and kidney
b) Early models are likely to be plagued with problems
c) Asus build quality can be hit and miss

I will say it's good we finally get to see some sensibly sized OLED screens, I didn't think it would take until 2024 to get there but it's certainly an area I'll have my eye on when my current monitor gives up the ghost.

I haven't heard anything about new QD-OLED fixing the pixel layout. Could be "improved text clarity" just referring to record pixel density for desktop OLED, 32" 4k is what, 140ish ppi?

Not mentioned here https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/asus-rog-swift-oled-pg32ucdm

Edit: well, maybe sliightly improved in next gen https://tftcentral.co.uk/articles/s...-pixel-structure-may-help-with-text-rendering
It does indeed help, I found it improved on the Samsung OLED G9 which is a gen 2 panel. It looks even better on the 32” due to increased pixel density, I was very impressed to be honest (yes I’m at the Asus event covering it)

They need to sort the brightness with theee oled monitors. The LG was awful to use day to day due to the auto brightness limiter. I wonder if the next generation of these will fix this?

Here is the pixel layout


Current QD-OLED monitor looks like this:






This new QD OLED panel looks like this:




It's still a triangle, but they've moved the sub pixels around and it now has a more horizontal shape and there is less empty black between space the pixels. Vincent says text is much sharper and clearer on the new monitor

if the monitor has displayu port 1.4 that needs DSC for full spec, maybe its just better to use the hdmi 2.1 ports for the conection and not use DSC
most recent GPUs that would run content at spec will have both!
only ussue would be if you staerted having more then one screen of this spec, but that will be the 1% or 1%.

Hdmi 2.1 is not enough though

3840x2160 240hz 4:4:4 HDR10 requires about 56GB/s of bandwidth

Damn, what’s the likely cost of this?
Bought a Samsung G8 Neo a week ago which I’m really impressed/happy with. If only this was announced 7 days earlier !

Ah, that makes sense then.
A shame display port 2 is not ready for this wave then for future proofing. Wonder if it will be on any models next year or pigs might fly as a user firmwhere update...
