Leaked MSI roadmap shows first 360Hz QD-OLED monitors to launch in 2024

A roadmap from the leading computer monitor maker MSI has been leaked online, showing that it will launch what could well be the world’s first ever QD-OLED monitor with a 360Hz refresh rate.


The new 360Hz QD-OLED monitors are expected to launch next year, and follow in the footsteps of the world’s first 240Hz QD-OLED monitors, which made their debut earlier this year.

MSI’s roadmap was posted online by a known leaker who uses the @g01d3nm4ng0 handle on X, formerly known as Twitter. According to FlatPanels HD and Digital Trends, the leaked document appears to be legitimate, and lists six new monitors that will debut in the next year.

The lineup includes two 32-inch 4K 240Hz monitors, listed as the MPG-321UPX and MAG-321UPX, and two smaller 27-inch 1440p 360Hz monitors, the MPG-321UPX and MAG-271QPX. There’s also a 49-inch 4K MPG-491CQP monitor, which has a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 34-inch MAG-341CQP with a 175Hz refresh rate, which is claimed to be a “more price-competitive version" of the MSI MEG 342C monitor that launched this year.

All six of the products are said to be QD-OLED displays, using panels supplied by Samsung Display.

This is an exciting bit of news, especially regarding the proposed pair of 360Hz refresh rate monitors, as they represent a new level up in the world of gaming displays after 240Hz.

QD-OLED is perhaps the most impressive display technology of our times. The technology is developed by Samsung Display and made its debut last year, and is said by many to be superior to LG Display’s traditional White OLED tech.

Because QD-OLED displays have an extremely rapid response time, a monitor with a 360Hz refresh rate should exceed the performance of a 500Hz LCD panel, it has been claimed. MSI’s 360Hz MPG-321UPX and MAG-271QPX monitors are said to have a 2560x1440, ultra wide screen resolution, meaning they are likely to be dedicated gaming displays.

FlatPanels HD points out that MSI’s roadmap matches one that was leaked from Samsung Display earlier this year. It makes sense, because another leak from LG Display suggests that the rival display maker is aiming to launch an even faster, 480Hz WOLED panel in the third quarter of next year. So Samsung Display needs to keep pushing.


MSI’s roadmap doesn’t mention any specific launch date. Rather, it states the two 360Hz monitors have an “MP Date” in January. This could mean something like “major date” or “milestone date” and suggests that this would be when the product is first announced, rather than actually launched.

Most likely, MSI will announce the new displays at CES 2024, with a launch date scheduled for later in the year, perhaps late spring or early summer.

MSI isn’t the only customer buying QD-OLED panels from Samsung Display, so there’s a good chance that other brands will also announced 360Hz monitors in the coming weeks.
