Share this content

At Computex 2022 MSI are showcasing their new MEG 342C QD-OLED monitor, a direct competitor to the already released Dell Alienware AW3423DW (review coming very soon) and the announced, but yet to appear in any real way Samsung Odyssey G8QNB. The MEG 342C will be 34″ in size with a curved (1800R) ultrawide format and 3440 x 1440 resolution. It will also offer a 175Hz refresh rate and is based on a QD-OLED panel. This will offer excellent black depth and contrast ratio, per-pixel dimming for excellent HDR experience and near-instant response times.

MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED Specs

The screen is 34″ in size with a 21:9 aspect ratio ultrawide format, and a 1800R curvature. It has a 3440 x 1440 resolution and is expected to have the following specs – 0.1ms G2G response time, 1 million:1 contrast ratio, and for HDR should have a ~1000 nits peak brightness.

A high 175Hz refresh rate is offered like the Dell and Samsung equivalents, not surprising given they will all be based on the same Samsung QD-OLED panel. We believe this screen will be based on adaptive-sync for VRR as opposed to using a Native G-sync module like the Dell equivalent did. This will give it VRR support from AMD and NVIDIA systems.

The screen will be branded with MSI’s “QD Premium Color” and supports MSI True Color technology and exclusive Premium Color Mode. This will include a wide colour gamut with 99.3% DCI-P3, 97.8% Adobe RGB and 139.1% sRGB coverage quoted. The screen will also come factory calibrated with a dE <2 it is reported.

Additional features

The MEG 342C QD-OLED is part of MSI’s high-end MEG series. It has a “dignified, elegant, and mythical design” and also supports MSI Gaming Intelligence which demonstrates the strength of MSI in terms of the integration of hardware and software. Besides the built-in smart processor which can be remote-controlled by a smartphone, it includes Sound Tune AI noise canceling. Other features are included like Smart Crosshair, an ambient light sensor, PBP/PIP support, and a built-in KVM function. No word on connectivity options at this stage that we have seen.
