Super punchy, ultra-vibrant, and uber curved, MSI’s new gaming panel is an eye-popper.
Decided to do something? You may as well absolutely own it. This, surely, is the philosophy behind the new MSI MPG Artymis 343CQR. It’s an eye-popping screen by many metrics, not least thanks to its 34-inch superwide proportions, 165Hz refresh rate, 550cd/m2 brightness, and 1ms response. But it’s the 343CQR’s outrageously tight 1000R panel curvature that marks it out as something not just special but genuinely unusual – and a contender for best curved gaming monitor that we’ve in a while.
Arguably, it’s a brave move given curved screens are an acquired taste, in a way. Curved panels have almost disappeared from the HDTV market, for instance. However, they’ve retained a decent foothold in the PC market. As we’ll see, that’s for good reason.
