MSI has announced the G272C 27 inch gaming monitor, designed for use in gaming systems. The MSI gaming monitor is made on a VA panel measuring 27 inches diagonally with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels, which corresponds to the Full HD format.
The MSI curved monitor has a brightness of 300 cd/m 2, a contrast ratio of 3000:1, and a dynamic contrast ratio of 100,000,000:1. Viewing angles horizontally and vertically reach 178 degrees. 89% Adobe RGB and 92.3% DCI-P3 are claimed. The number of reproducible shades is 16.7 million.
The panel has a concave shape with a curvature radius of 1000R. It is said to perfectly match the human field of view, thereby providing eye comfort during long gaming sessions.
MPRT response time is 1ms and refresh rate is 170Hz. The 1080p monitor implements the Night Vision function, which helps to improve the display of dark scenes in movies or games. That gives an advantage over rivals in the virtual space. AMD FreeSync Premium technology is responsible for eliminating frame tearing and improving the smoothness of the gaming experience.
The 1ms monitor comes with two HDMI 2.0b interfaces, a DP 1.2a connector, and a standard 3.5mm audio jack. The stand allows you to adjust the angle of the screen in the range of 25 degrees.
