MSI has unveiled another 1080p 170Hz monitor for gaming computers: the model with the designation Optix G2412 received a traditional flat screen on an IPS panel with a diagonal of 23.8 inches and a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels (Full HD format).
The panel has a 1ms response time (MPRT) and a refresh rate of 170Hz. AMD FreeSync technology helps to raise the smoothness of the image. The Night Vision function increases the detail in dark areas of the image, which allows you to better see lurking enemies.
The new 170Hz gaming monitor has a brightness of 250 cd/m2, the contrast ratio is 1100:1, the dynamic contrast ratio is 100,000,000:1, and viewing angles – are up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically. Coverage of Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, and sRGB color spaces reaches 86.52%, 81.64%, and 102.58% respectively.
Reduce eye strain during long gaming sessions with Anti-Flicker and Less Blue Light. Only the angle of the display can be adjusted using the stand. A black stabilizer that brightens dark areas in games can be set via the OSD.
There are two HDMI 1.4b interfaces, a DisplayPort 1.2a connector, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. With the VESA mount, the 170Hz monitor can be hung on the wall.
