MSI has introduced two new Artymis game monitors for more demanding gamers, which, in addition to high frequency, also focus on higher image quality.
These are the MSI MPG Artymis 273CQR-QD and 273CQRX-QD models. As the name suggests, the diagonal of the displays is 27 inches in both cases, while the resolution is also the same 2,560 × 1,440 pixels with a 16: 9 aspect ratio and a 1000R curvature. Both models have a VA panel with Quantum Dot technology. As a result, it offers very high image quality – 128% sRGB, 93% Adobe RGB and 95% for the DCI-P3 standard.
Although they have the same 3,000: 1 contrast and maximum brightness (400 nits for SDR content and 530 nits for HDR), the difference is in frequency. The Artymis 273CQR-QD model has a panel with a frequency of 165 Hz and the 273CQRX-QD variant with a higher frequency of 240 Hz. In both cases, FreeSync Premium Pro technology is supported.
In addition to Displayport (1.2a) and HDMI 2.0b, the monitors also have a USB-C hub with the possibility of power supply up to 5V and 3A. There is no lack of sound output.
Especially for MSI players, technologies such as Optix Scope, Smart Crosshair, Night Vision, KVM and Sound Tune have been built into the monitor software.
MSI has not yet revealed the prices, but they are expected in the area of $ 499, ie about 14,000 crowns.
