HP's new 4K 240Hz OLED gaming monitor lets you drag and drop files across devices

Announced at CES 2024, the Omen Transcend 32 offers 140W USB-C power delivery, Dolby Vision HDR and more.


HP has unveiled the Omen Transcend 32 OLED gaming monitor with high-end specs and new features that should make it a pretty darn good productivity monitor, too. It's part of the company's newly launched Omen lineup at CES 2024, which includes the world's lightest gaming laptop.

The Omen Transcend 32 looks like an impressive gaming monitor, even before looking at the other new tricks. It uses LG's latest QD-OLED tech and features a 31.5-inch screen with 4K resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate, with a 0.3-millisecond response time. It's the company's first Omen display that's Dolby Vision certified, offering 99 percent DCI-P3 coverage and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification with peak brightness up to 1,000 nits.

On the gaming side, it also supports AMD's FreeSync Premium Pro and is likely G-Sync compatible as well. You can enhance the mood with aRGB back lighting and it uses Omen's "Tempest" technology to cool the OLED panel during prolonged gaming sessions. Audio-wise, it uses HP's HyperX tech, which connects to Omen's Gaming Hub to allow for customized EQ and other settings.

If you're one to alternate gaming with productivity or content creation, it has some truly interesting additional features. It comes with KVM switchable inputs that let you run two devices (including keyboard and mouse) from the same display without having to change cables or use a switching box. On top of that, a picture-in-picture mode shows what's happing on both devices at one.

That KVM functionality also allows for control of more than one computer at the same time and even the ability drag and drop files across devices, according to HP. All of that could allow you to play a game, all while doing spreadsheets or attending a Zoom meeting — a nice feature for users but perhaps not their bosses.

Another big feature is USB-C with DisplayPort alt mode and 140 watts of power delivery, enough for even powerful gaming laptops. Other features include Dual HDMI 2.1 ports, the latest DisplayPort 2.1, two USB-C 3.2 ports (each with 15 watts of power delivery) and a pair of USB-A 3.2 ports. Finally, it has a three-year warranty to guard against potential burn-in, much like Alienware's latest QD-OLED monitors.

The Omen Transcend looks like a desirable monitor, but like many devices launched at CES 2024, it won't be available for awhile. It's set to arrive sometime mid-next year, with pricing to be announced at a later date.
