MSI reports on Twitter It is working on the first “ultrafast” panel with QD OLED. The manufacturer calls this monitor “Project 491C”, indicating that it is a 49-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 32: 9. The image of the monitor seems to confirm this suspicion. MSI reports that the monitor will have a 240Hz refresh rate, but it doesn’t share information on the exact resolution.
Project 491C will be the first QD OLED display with a 49-inch diagonal, although 49-inches are already available with LCD screens. Currently, manufacturers only offer QD OLED screens with a diagonal of 34 inches, Including MSI itself. In addition, this is the first QD OLED panel with a refresh rate of 240Hz.
