MSI launches MPG Artymis 343CQR 34-inch 1000R curved gaming monitor

There are two curved displays in my home --a television in my living room and a computer monitor in my office. Both look cool, but to be honest, the curve doesn't really make a difference in my living room. Since I sit far back from the TV, the curve doesn't add any benefit. On the computer monitor where I sit much closer, however, the curvature adds to the overall immersion -- it is quite remarkable. I can't recommend curved computer monitors enough.

Today, MSI officially launches its newest curved display, and it is heavily focused on gaming. Called "MPG Artymis 343CQR," the 34-inch UWQHD display has a dramatic 1000R curve and a drop-dead gorgeous design that would make it look at home on any gamer's desk. And yes, it is compatible with AMD FreeSync.

"The MPG Artymis 343CQR is the latest 1000R curved gaming monitor, providing a truly immersive experience with less image distortion. 1000R is the perfect curve for gamers who sit about 1 meter/3 feet from their display. The curvature rating of 1000R matches the natural vision of the human eye, resulting in an ergonomic setup, less eye strain and faster reaction times while gaming," explains MSI.

The company further says, "In addition to 1000R, MSI added many exclusive AI features to the MSI ARTYMIS Series. The first product within the series, MPG ARTYMIS 343CQR, comes equipped with 3440 x1440 resolution, 1ms response time, and HDR400 to fully utilize the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series. The 34-inch monitor has a high-speed refresh rate of 165Hz, eliminating screen delay time and presenting an extremely smooth screen presentation."
