MSI to Launch MPG 341CQPX 34″ Ultrawide 240Hz QD-OLED Monitor

Share this content

In some exclusive news, we’ve got information about a forthcoming new screen from MSI in their expanding QD-OLED monitor range. The MPG 341CQPX will offer a new 34″ ultrawide option, using the brand new 240Hz refresh rate Samsung Display QD-OLED panel being produced this year. MSI already have a couple of 34″ models in their other MEG and MAG ranges, but this new model will enter their top-end MPG range instead and feature this higher refresh rate. We’ll explain the differences between this and their other recently released (and similarly named) MAG 341CQP below, and run down the specs and features you can expect from this new model.


The screen is 34″ in size with a 21:9 aspect ratio and ultrawide format. It has a fairly subtle 1800R curvature, far less aggressive than the 800R curve of competing LG.Display WOLED panel-based screens like the Asus ROG Swift PG34WCDM for instance.

There is a 3440 x 1440 resolution, 0.03ms G2G response time spec, 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio, 250 nits brightness (SDR), 1000 nits peak brightness (HDR) and 178/178 viewing angles. While not listed on the spec we were provided, we believe this will also include a 10-bit colour depth support and a wide colour gamut covering ~98% DCI-P3 as per their other recent QD-OLED monitors. The 240Hz refresh rate is supported by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates from compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems.

For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC), 2x HDMI 2.1 (full speed with 4K 120Hz console support) and 1x USB type-C with DP Alt mode and 98W power delivery. There’s also a couple of USB data ports, and we believe a headphone connection too. A KVM switch function is included as well.

The screen will have the same fan-less design with custom heatsink and graphene panel as their other new OLED monitors. It includes a 3 year warranty which includes burn-in cover, and their wide range of impressive OLED Care 2.0 features and settings.

A New QD-OLED Generation

One of the main differences with this new model is that it will be using an updated version of the 34″ ultrawide QD-OLED panel from Samsung Display. That’s being produced this year as an update to the 175Hz refresh rate version which was released in 2022 and has been widely adopted, including in MSI’s other 34″ OLED monitors released to date.

Slightly confusingly, despite being produced in 2024 Samsung Display don’t consider this new 34″ 240Hz panel to be part of their third generation technology like the 27″ and 32″ panels they’ve also produced this year. That”s because it doesn’t include the Quantum Enhancer feature of the third generation, and also doesn’t need to use the Pico Inkjet production process which is really only needed for the higher pixel density of the 32″ panel.

It does however include the updated pixel structure from gen 2 panels from 2023, and so we’ve labelled it as “gen 2.5” ourselves, clearly being produced in 2024 after last gen in 2023, but still having the features from gen 2. As such it sits somewhere in between 2 and 3. This new gen 2.5 panel replaces the original gen 1 panel from 2022, now with a higher refresh rate and importantly the updated pixel layout and shape that helped improve text clarity quite nicely.

You might rightly ask how this new screen is different to the recently released MAG 341CQP, which has a very similar product name as you can see. Here’s the differences:

  • This new model has a 240Hz refresh rate instead of 175Hz MAG 341CQP does.
  • It has a newer “gen 2.5” panel with improved pixel layout/shape, compared with gen 1 panel used for the other model – this caused some confusion online because MSI talk about the MAG 341CQP being a “next generation QD-OLED” on their product page. To clarify, the panel itself is a gen 1 Samsung panel with the same 175Hz refresh rate as before, and the older pixel layout too. But it’s MSI’s newer generation of monitor with updated and improved specs, for instance including OLED Care 2.0 and a fan-less design this time compared with their older MEG 342C QD-OLED which also used the same 175Hz gen 1 Samsung panel.
  • The MAG 341CQP is part of MSI’s MAG series and so has some lower spec features. It has a USB-C connection which has a lower 15W power delivery, compared with the 98W of the MPG 341CQPX. Normally their MAG series don’t support firmware updates either, but the MAG 341CQP does seem to offer that according to the product page. There could be some other feature differences between the two models but we are pending a full product spec.
  • The new X model will have a higher retail price. The MAG 341CQP retails at the moment for $829.99 USD, whereas the new MPG 341CQPX will have an MSRP of $1099.99 USD.
