HP is seemingly preparing a new flat OLED gaming monitor featuring a UHD resolution and high refresh rates. It will also carry the brand’s Tempest cooling technology to reduce OLED’s burning risk.

According to Windows Report, the Omen Transcend 32, as the name implies, uses a flat 32in OLED panel rocking a UHD resolution. Gamers can enjoy up to 240Hz refresh rate alongside OLED’s renowned contrast and pixel refresh. While we don’t know the details, we can expect at least the usual 1,500,000:1 contrast and 0.03ms pixel response. Brightness is announced as reaching 1,000nits in HDR – probably peak. Lastly, the Transcend 32 also supports the usual adaptive sync technologies plus Dolby Vision.

Gaming credentials

Most notably, the Transcend 32 uses HP’s Omen Tempest Monitor Cooling Technology which is said to reduce burn-in. Many brands already include cooling layers with their OLED-based TVs and monitors. For example, the Alienware AW3423DWF even has a fan to help with heat dissipation. That said, in the case of the Transcend 32, we are not sure if HP is using an active solution. Probably not if we refer to the lack of vents on the monitor’s rear.

Regarding connectivity, the display features one DisplayPort 2.1, two HDMI 2.1, plus one USB upstream Type-C with DisplayPort Alt Mode and 140W power delivery. Additionally, we find a USB hub bringing another three USB 3.2 Type-A alongside one USB 3.2 Type-C. The latter goes hand in hand with the KVM support. It is nice to see a monitor with the latest video inputs, so users can take full advantage of the latest tech.

Design-wise, the screen adopts a black-and-white body contrasted by an RGB strip integrated around the VESA mount location. A sober look that fits perfectly in gaming rooms and offices when the RGB is turned off.

More information will be shared during CES 2024. Stay tuned.
