MSI Launching New Generation of QD-OLED Gaming Monitors

MSI is gearing up to release its latest MPG and MAG series QD-OLED gaming monitors, with promotional activities starting in early 2024. The company is making efforts to connect with the gaming community by offering a 3-year warranty for OLED panel products and announcing permanent price cuts for launch day. It seems that MSI is aiming to compete with ASUS ROG, as the MPG 321URX will be priced at $949.99, down from $1199, to rival the Swift OLED PG32UCDM priced at $1299.

The "MSI_Darutohne" Reddit account engaged with potential customers on the popular premium gaming monitor discussion community, r/OLED_Gaming. They introduced the new QD-OLED monitors and provided detailed information on the six new models. While many members appreciated the product rundowns, one user, Mars0813, raised concerns about the MAG 321UPX model's lack of software/firmware update support. MSI_Darutohne confirmed that this model will not receive software updates, leading some users to cancel pre-orders or request refunds.

According to VideoCardz, discussions revealed that MSI will not offer firmware updates for the MAG 27" and 32" monitors through MSI OSD or any other application, except for the MAG 341CQP QD-OLED monitor. Users looking for firmware updates can opt for the MPG variant for just $50 more, allowing them to flash new firmware through the USB Type-C connector.
