Ultra-fast screens with ridiculous refresh rates are all the rage at CES 2024 – but does anybody care?

The huge CES 2024 tech expo in Las Vegas doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, but I’ve already spotted a trend coming into this year’s show: ultra-fast refresh rates for monitors and screens.

We’ve already had LG showing off a new 27-inch OLED monitor with an eye-popping 480Hz refresh rate, MSI highlighting its MPG 321URX / 271QRX monitors at up to 360Hz, and Acer launching two large-screen gaming monitors, the 39-inch Predator X39 and the 34-inch Predator X34 X, with up to 240Hz refresh rates.
