MSI Outs Optix AG321CR Curved Gaming Monitor

MSI today rolled out the Optix AG321CR, a curved 31.5-inch gaming monitor. Its VA panel features 1500R curvature, and conventional 16:9 aspect-ratio, with WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) native resolution. Its other gamer-relevant specs include 1 ms (MPRT) response time, 165 Hz refresh rate, 10-bpc color (1.07 billion colors), 178°/178° viewing angles, and support for AMD FreeSync Premium technology. Other panel specs include 250 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 3,000:1 static contrast ratio. Its stand allows height, tilt, and 30° of pivot. A USB 2.0 hub, and an RGB ornament behind the panel, make for the rest of it. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I'd say a good 97% of actual devices are still USB2.0 (not counting smartphones, although even those are in majority still USB2.0 I think)

But I get your emotion because when they released that pico raspberry PI and I read it -incredibly- had USB1.1... I was just outside myself, how are people accepting that? And I think most USB hubs can't even do 1.1 without switching the entire hub to 1.1, and the newest USB standard did away with 1.1 legacy support I think didn't it? Anyway, it's madness.

Places are listing the AG321CR already as a 1080p panel, and it's dirt cheap for a 31.5" display, barely half the price of the AG32CQ which is 1440p/144Hz/VA

Yup, definitely only a 1080p panel. It is at least cheap so that's not entirely a bad thing for gamers on a budget.
