Quantum Dot OLED gaming monitors aren’t just science fiction, they’re the future

QD-OLED, or Quantum Dot Organic Light Emitting Diodes, if you like, sounds to me like something Spielberg invented for his latest sci-fi creation. But after a bit of digging, it actually looks to be one of the most interesting innovations we’ve seen in the recent gaming monitor space with bendable screens, of course.

Samsung just unveiled the Odyssey G8QNB gaming monitor at CES 2022 with a 175Hz refresh rate, vibrant colors and an ultra-wide 4K curved design. But what I’m most excited about is that it applies to QD-OLED display technology.

It touts the same panel technology behind the new Alienware AW3423DW, which was also unveiled during the chaos of CES. For this reason, both technically hold the title of the world’s first quantum dot OLED gaming monitor. However, I guess it depends on which comes to market first.
