The LG Curved Screen Project 491C is a super ultra-wide panel-equipped curved gaming monitor of the next generation. The interesting thing about this panel is that it uses the QD-OLED technology and provides a whopping 240Hz refresh rate. The display itself is a rare “SUPER ULTRA-WIDE” “The monitor has a format not typically seen in gaming monitors, and while a few possibilities exist, none of them uses QD-OLED (240Hz) technology.
As it turns out, LG is also releasing a wide OLED screen. The screen’s diameter is a whopping 45 inches, yet the resolution remains the same at 3440 by 1440. It’s an OLED panel with a 240 Hz refresh rate and a curved display (800R). LG promotes this WHQD screen with a response time of 0.03 ms.
