MSI, the brand known for their high-performance gaming hardware, has just announced a new gaming monitor, the MSI Optix AG32C. The new monitor uses a 31.5-inch VA panel with a maximum resolution of just 1920×1080 (Full HD). It’s also curved with a curvature of 1800R.
This is a very low resolution for a monitor this huge, but on the bright side, AMD FreeSync is supported. This essentially means you can wave goodbye to screen tearing without any repercussions. Furthermore, the Optix AG32C display supports a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz, which is very good as well. Since it supports FreeSync, it’s best to combine this monitor with a Radeon GPU to get the most out of this monitor. That way, you can enjoy a smooth, tear-free gaming experience.
Moving on to the color spectrum, 110% of sRGB and 85% of NTSC are supported, which are impressive specifications considering it’s a monitor for gaming and not a professional monitor of any sort. Response time is specified to be 1ms, which is today’s standard for VA panels.
178 degrees viewing angles are supported and the static ratio is rated as 3000:1 (static). Maximum brightness is 250 cd/m2, which is not impressive. Input options include DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, and dual-link DVI.
As far as the price tag for this monitor goes, we have not yet received any information regarding this. No word on release date either.
