MSI has announced a new monitor called the MPG ARTYMIS 343CQR. This is a 34-inch, 3440 x 1440p VA panel with a 165 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms response time, HDR 400 support, and 1000R curvature. The latter appears to be the ARTYMIS’ biggest selling point, as MSI has devoted a good portion of its press release explaining why the specification is ideal for gamers.
“The MSI ARTYMIS series is the most curved 1000R gaming monitor on the market,” MSI explained. “It perfectly fits the curvature of the human eye so that you can see the entire screen without any fatigue. The curved surface design can also enhance the sense of coverage and immersion so that you will not be disturbed by the outside environment during the game, which greatly enhances the gaming experience.”
“The curved-screen also has an advantage that is often overlooked. The left and right edges of the curved-screen can be seen at a glance and is ergonomic, which helps with the response speed of the human body. In summary, for a player who has been in front of the computer for a long time, the 1000R Perfect Curved Monitor is one of his best choices when choosing a gaming monitor.”
MSI’s MPG ARTYMIS 343CQR may also be of interest to PlayStation 5 owners who are seeking a QHD monitor that can accept 4K signals for improved picture quality (Sony’s next-gen console does not feature a 1440p display output option). Unlike many traditional QHD monitors, the ARTYMIS can accept a 4K signal through its Console Mode and downscale/output a higher-quality picture in 2K resolution.
