It's a monitor that is fairly similar on the surface to the Samsung Odyssey G8QNB monitor, which we think will also tip the scales in the price department.

Size: 34.18 inches | Resolution: 3440 x 1440 | Panel: QD-OLED | Curve: 1800R | Refresh Rate: 175hz | Response Time: 0.1ms GTG Colour: 99.3% DCI-P3 | Brightness: 1000 nit | Features: Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate

Some of the standout specs and features here are the much more subtle 1800R curve, which should make this monitor great for both gaming and productivity.

It also packs a 175hz refresh rate which should make for some ultra-smooth gaming when combined with Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate and its staggeringly low 0.1ms response time.

Interestingly, they've omitted the HDMI 2.1 ports on this model, which isn't a huge deal in our books as we think the majority of owners will use the DisplayPort connection over HDMI anyway.

Plus, at 1440p, HDMI 2.1 isn't essential anyway, we'll leave that to some of the larger 4K OLED displays on their way this year.

Of course, you can't miss the big draw for the monitor which is the QD-OLED panel. This should provide true blacks and incredible brightness (up to 1000 nits in this case).

Not only this, but the new display also boasts a whopping 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio which should allow for striking visuals.

This is said to be the same panel as the impressive Samsung Odyssey G8QNB packs, which has caught some attention for being the world's thinnest monitor at just 5.9mm!

It's got a 3-year warranty should you fear the old 'burn-in' scenario, which is comforting for anyone investing in an OLED display.
