The product’s not even half-baked but, however that isn’t stopping Dough — the bread gaming monitor firm previously often known as Eve has simply introduced what it claims would be the first 32-inch 240Hz 4K OLED monitor in your entire market.
In different phrases: you must take Dough with a pinch of salt.
However like Dough’s promised 27-inch OLED, the brand new 32-inch 4K OLED sounds prefer it may very well be higher crust, if it rises in any respect.
Whereas its 98.5 p.c DCI-P3 coloration, 48–240Hz VRR (and meh 150-nit typical brightness) ought to be out there to any producer adopting the identical OLED panel, Dough goes in opposition to the grain by providing USB-C connectivity with 100W of charging on your laptop computer — along with a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort, a 3.5mm audio jack, and 5 10Gbps USB ports (one USB-C enter, two USB-C outputs, and two USB-A outputs, along with the upstream USB-C connector on your PC).
If these options sound acquainted, that’s as a result of Dough says it’s utilizing the identical motherboard it’s growing for the 27-incher right here, too.

And it’ll have a two-year burn-in guarantee, assuming you’re keen to belief Dough. Many OLED monitor producers (Alienware and Corsair are notable exceptions) don’t supply any burn-in assurance.
Final however not yeast, Dough says it’ll be out there in each matte and Gorilla Glass DXC finishes, the latter of which prices $100–$200 extra and affords higher distinction and considerably decreased reflections in comparison with the shiny coating Dough / Eve used beforehand, the corporate claims.
Along with having considerably… stretchy ship dates, the corporate additionally makes use of FOMO that goes above and past most crowdfunding websites to lure you in. Costs begin at $699 for matte or $799 for the Gorilla Glass end, earlier than growing in suits and begins to what are at present slated to be last retail costs of $1,099 and $1,299, respectively.
That solely features a VESA 100 x 100 mountable monitor, by the best way — a forged aluminum stand prices further.
Dough says it’s at present focusing on April 2024 for the 32-inch monitor, although there’s a little bit of a discrepancy there: a current Reddit submit from a Dough worker advised the required 31.5-inch OLED panels wouldn’t be out there till almost Q3 of 2024.
