CES 2024 is clearly going to be a big year for OLED monitor announcements. We’ve already seen LG tease recently a range of new OLED monitors that they plan to unveil properly at the event on 9th January 2024 in sizes of 27″, 31.5″, 34″, 39″ and 45″, and now HP are doing the same with their new “OMEN Transcend 32″ monitor. This was teased back on 21 Dec, but we have some official information now from their CES press release. This is a 31.5″ sized screen (32” class) with a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate.

HP OMEN Transcend 32 Specs
The screen is 31.5″ in size and uses a Samsung QD-OLED monitor just like the models already announced in this size and spec from Asus, MSI and Dell. It has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and 240Hz refresh rate, which is supported by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates (VRR) from compatible systems. There’s also a 0.3ms G2G response time spec and 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio thanks to the OLED panel.
The screen has a 1000 nits peak brightness spec for HDR and even supports Dolby Vision content, alongside (as would assume) HDR10. It has been certified under the VESA ‘DisplayHDR True Black 400’ scheme, not to be confused with HDR400 for LCD’s. HP also say that the screen will use “Omen Tempest Monitor Cooling Technology” that will apparently help reduce burn-in risk, with the screen also being backed by a 3-year warranty for peace of mind.
You can also enjoy game audio and music to the fullest on the world’s first gaming monitor with audio tuned by HyperX which includes a 10 band EQ that is fully customizable within OMEN Gaming Hub.
Connectivity including USB type-C
The screen includes 1x USB type-C connection with DP Alt mode and a high 140W power delivery. KVM support is also featured. There’s no mention in the official press release about HDMI, although we expect a couple of HDMI 2.1 ports to be included (features TBC).
The early teaser information released by Windowsreport back in Dec 2023 suggested the screen would have a DisplayPort 2.1 connection as well, but given this is not mentioned at all in the new press release (when USB-C is), we are very skeptical that it would feature this connection, or at least any of the newer UHBR speeds. We await full spec pages from HP to confirm though.

Pricing and Availability
The HP OMEN Transcend 32 Gaming Monitor is expected to be available later this year according to the press release, but there’s no firmer date than that. Pricing will be shared closer to availability too they say.
