MSI is a name whose absence has been conspicuous in the gaming monitor market. Others, notably Asus, have muscled in on this lucrative territory with a range of premium models accommodating stylish designs, both forms of adaptive sync technology, and high refresh rates.
Not to be outdone, MSI, in recent months, has begun shipping its own range of gaming monitors under the Optix line. Today’s review model is arguably the most interesting of the lot, fitting in a gaming-friendly 2,560×1,440 resolution, 144Hz maximum refresh rate, 1ms response time, a gentle curve, purportedly excellent colour gamut reproduction, FreeSync compatibility and RGB to boot. Yup, RGB. Quite a list of accomplishments, so let’s take a closer look at the Optix MPG27CQ.
