MSI today has announced The Optix MAG301CR, a 30-inch WFHD ultra-wide gaming monitor rocking 2560×1080 resolution, 200z refresh rate, FreeSync and a 1ms response time curved panel.
The 21:9 widescreen increases screen size giving gamers wider viewing angles. Also great for desktop multitasking. Having two separate browser windows open side by side is something I would struggle to live with out now.
The Optix MAG301CR includes the MSI Gaming OSD App 2.0, giving greater control over your monitors display via desktop software. The App also allows you to use in-game hotkeys to adjust display settings. HDR and MSI Night Vision are also nice additions. Night Vision smartly computes and amplifies details in dark areas of the screen improving overexposed areas.
