MSI Intros Optix MAG24C Curved Gaming Monitor

MSI today introduced the Optix MAG24C, a 24-inch curved gaming-grade monitor, which could be the company's most affordable. Its Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution may not be much to write home about in 2017, but bolstering it gaming-grade credentials are its 144 Hz refresh-rate, and 1 ms (GTG) response-time, and support for AMD FreeSync technology. It also features OSD crosshairs, FPS counters, and display presets specific to game genres.

The Optix MAG24C is based on a VA (vertical-alignment) display panel, with 1800R curvature, 178°/178° viewing-angles, 110% sRGB coverage, 250 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 3,000:1 static contrast-ratio (with dynamic mega-contrast). A blue-light reduction mechanism, and flicker-free brightness control, complete its panel-specific features. The monitor takes input from DisplayPort 1.2a (needed for 144 Hz and FreeSync), HDMI 1.4a, and DVI. Its stand allows tilt and height adjustments. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I seriously need to ask, is there anyone who uses the OSD crosshairs and display presets specific to game genres?

It seems like a pointless waste that for some reason monitor manufacturers think is a positive selling point. Saving multiple user made pressers, sure, maybe. Even though on PC you can do that in software. But factory pre-made? Do they assume to know what people tastes are like, or what game creators intended for optimal experience. Same bull with TVs...
