MSI Launches Optix Mag Series Gaming Monitors

MSI, world's leading manufacturer of true gaming hardware is proudly expanding the hardware possibilities for gamers. Dedicated to providing gamers the most immersive gaming experience, MSI has prepared a strong line-up of new, curved gaming monitors. Introducing the MSI Optix MAG series, loaded with three models in two different screen sizes, the MSI Optix MAG24C, MSI Optix MAG27C and its flagship model, the MSI Optix MAG27CQ together mark MSI's definitive entry into the gaming monitor market. The Optix MAG27CQ is equipped with the latest gaming features to ensure great immersion when playing games. With a curved VA panel with a 1800R curve, a 1440p WQHD resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time, this gaming monitor is built for speed and stunning visuals.

Together with a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, less blue light and anti-flicker this gaming monitor is tailored for a perfect gaming day or night. The monitors can be swiveled, adjusted in height and tilted. Moreover, if you need a little help when playing games, the monitors even have a built-in FPS sight toggle on screen, so gamers can perfectly hit all of their targets.
Curved Gaming Display
MSI's gaming monitors use a curved panel with a curvature rate of 1800R, which is the most comfortable and suitable for a wide range of applications from general computing to gaming. Curved panels also help with gameplay immersion, making you feel more connected to what's happening on screen. Moreover, playing games on multiple curved gaming monitors gives a great panoramic experience.

The Smoothest Gaming Experience
The MSI Optix MAG series are equipped with a 144hz refresh rate + 1ms response time VA LED panel which has the most benefit in fast moving game genres such as first person shooters, fighters, racing sims, real-time strategy, and sports. These type of games require very fast and precise movements, so with an ultra-high refresh rate and fast response time monitor, you will be ahead of your competition.

Built for Long Gaming Sessions
Gamers always want to play long sessions. Does 'just one more turn' or finishing that epic raid sound familiar? With MSI's anti-flicker and less blue light reduction technology, gaming becomes a feast for the eyes, even during long periods. With anti-flicker technology, we reduce the flicker-rate (unnoticeable to the bare eye) that prevents eye fatigue. With blue light reduction, we reduce the total amount of blue light displayed by the monitor and ensure longer gaming periods without eyestrain.

Tailored for Perfect Fit
The MSI Optix MAG series is built to enhance your gaming sessions to be as comfortable as possible. With possibilities to tilt, swivel, and change height, it's easy to change the position of the gaming monitor for maximum ergonomics and an optimal viewing experience. And with the built in FPS front sight toggle you can always draw a sight to secure your aim during battles.

How about give us what we want then:
4K
144Hz
HDR
G-Sync or FreeSync

No? I guess you're just not that dedicated after all.

And exactly how many graphics cards can drive a screen with all those features?

40" 4k HDR 60hz ips would be fine here, as long as it can also do 1080 @ 144hz and its HDCP 2.2

Depending on the game; a 1080ti or a 1080ti in SLI. And before you come back with "Not even a 1080ti in SLI can run a Battlefront 2 at 144 frames in 4K", it's not about running every game at the monitors highest refresh rate. There are many games that will hit over 100fps with either card setup and with Gsync or FreeSync most games will feel smoother. I've been gaming at 4K for over two years now and on my previous 980ti Classifieds in SLI and my current 1080 FTW SLI I max most games run 4K max settings capped out at 60fps.

Depends on the distance you sit from the display. If you're talking a monitor that sits two feet from your face I'd disagree as the pixel density wouldn't look as detailed as a 26" or 32" at the same distance. I also think that 60Hz screens have had their day. I've been using a 4K 60Hz monitor now for over two years and I'm definitely ready for the market to progress and start pushing 4K with higher refresh rates. The high end cards are there to push the pixels we just need the displays to keep up with them.

"Moreover, if you need a little help when playing games, the monitors even have a built-in FPS sight toggle on screen, so gamers can perfectly hit all of their targets."

I'm sorry but that's just encouraging lazineness, even if the reticule can be toggled -- like, "I don't have to practice and get good on my own, my monitor does it for me." I say this as a general gamer (meaning I play on both PC and console, longer on consoles): don't expect to ever get good at an FPS if you always have your monitor do the work for you. :rolleyes:

I don't quite understand why there are not more 4K monitors on the market. It seems the monitors are stuck in neutral and not pushing the technology forward.

I've had a 42"4K monitor for 2 years now running 60Hz, first on a 780Ti (reduced eye candy) and recently on a 1080Ti (ultra eye candy). Frame rates on the 1080Ti are typically 90+ and higher for Battlefield 1 and on the 780 I was getting 50-60 FPS consistently, but obviously not on ultra settings.

I have had 144Hz monitors in the past running 1440p, but they were 27 and 32" monitors.

My personal preference is the 42" 4K even though it doesn't run at 144Hz.
