Samsung Display has shared a press release confirming that it has begun mass production of the world’s first OLED display for laptops with a refresh rate of 240 Hz, exciting news for mobile gamers and other enthusiasts who desire not only a fast panel, but one that can deliver some of the best image quality on today’s market. One of the first laptops that will be leveraging Samsung’s new 240 Hz OLED display is MSI’s Raider GE67 HX, a gaming-oriented laptop that the company detailed in its own press release earlier this month. The 15.6-inch panel offers a QHD resolution (2560×1440) and boasts 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Razer has also confirmed that its upcoming Razer Blade 15 model will feature Samsung’s 240 Hz display.
“OLED with high refresh rate is the perfect combination for a premium gaming experience, with super-low response time, super-wide color gamut, and super-high contrast ratio,” said Clark Peng, Vice President of MSI Notebook Product Management Division. “In addition, it balances well between high resolution and high refresh rate performance. Therefore, the latest 240Hz OLED display is suitable for high-performance enthusiasts and content creators as well as for gamers enjoying premium games.”
“Our new 240Hz refresh rate OLED meets and exceeds the demand of consumers who have long been waiting for a laptop with a high refresh rate OLED panel,” added Jeeho Baek, Executive Vice President and Head of Samsung Display Strategic Marketing for Small and Medium Business. “The clear advantages offered by high refresh rate OLED panels compared to LCDs will be a game changer for the gaming industry.”
Samsung OLED’s exceptional advantages of wide color gamut, high contrast ratio, true black and low blue light are not only recognized by smartphone users but by discerning laptop users as well. Beyond visual elements, specifications that affect actual gameplay such as response time and refresh rate, are more critical to gaming laptop users and the reason many players are opting for OLED products.
