MSI Optix MAG342CQRV is the latest computer monitor presented by the Taiwanese firm. You will not be surprised to learn that it is intended for PC games like most new models that are coming to the market.
The monitor uses a 34-inch diagonal curved panel with VA technology. Its native resolution is 3440 x 1440 pixels, with a 21: 9 aspect ratio in a widescreen format increasingly used for its advantages of increasing the horizontal field of view.
Gaming capabilities come from Adaptive-sync image sync support, a 100 Hz refresh rate, and a 1 millisecond response time.
MSI Optix MAG342CQRV includes the Gaming OSD application, which allows you to control the monitor screen in a software window. Display settings can be customized for different applications and the presets will be applied automatically once launched. It also allows you to use hotkeys to adjust display settings for different game genres.
Another included app is Night Vision, which intelligently calculates the details in the dark area of the screen to be magnified, rather than brightening the entire screen and preventing some areas from being overexposed.
The monitor has an ergonomic base that allows height, tilt and swivel adjustments, and HDMI and Display Port video inputs.
