MSI’s new curved monitor features AI technology to help you game

MSI’s MPG Artymis 343CQR gaming monitor is now available for purchase. The 34-inch curved gaming monitor has a 1000R curvature and supports multiple AI features, including night vision, smart brightness, and a built-in noise-reducing microphone. The MPG Artymis 343CQR is available now for $900 at AmazonNewegg and MSI. The Amazon listing contains the wrong images at the time of publication, so it’s worth double-checking before ordering.

The monitor’s 1000R curvature is designed to match the natural curve of the human eye. As a result, people should experience less eye strain, according to MSI. The monitor has a resolution of 3440 x 1440, a response time of 1ms and a refresh rate of 165Hz. It also supports HDR400, which MSI highlights can make full use of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series of GPUs. .

The MPG Artymis 343CQR’s AI features should also help deliver good visuals. With the Gaming OSD application, you can control the monitor display under a software window. You can customize the display for different software and the Gaming OSD application will automatically apply these settings when you start an application.

A unique feature of this monitor is OptixScope, which is MSI’s own proprietary aiming magnifier. The function has an eight-level zoom and programmable hotkeys to change magnification. It also automatically lowers your mouse DPI at higher magnifications, so you shouldn’t end up with an annoying cursor.

You should also be able to see more detail in dark parts of games, thanks to the monitor’s night vision AI. The function should brighten dark areas without overexposing them.

The monitor’s built-in microphones feature AI noise reduction, which should help gamers communicate without distraction.

The MPG Artymis 343CQR is designed for next-gen consoles as well as PC gaming. It automatically accepts 4K and HDR signals.

MSI first announced this monitor at CES 2021, but it became available this week.
