MSI announced the upcoming release of two gaming monitors, the first, dubbed MSI MEG Artymis 341, being a curved mini-LED display with a 165Hz refresh rate that promises excellent color reproduction, thanks to a number of technologies, including MSI’s own premium quantum dot films. The second monitor, the MSI MEG 551U OLED, is a massive 55-inch OLED monitor directed at console gamers.
MSI MEG Artymis 341, marks an industry first with its sharp curvature combined with mini-LED backlighting. It meets the VESA Display HDR 1000 requirements, supporting at least HDR10 high dynamic range content and achieving a brightness of at least 1,000 nits at peak luminance. It has a 34-inch screen with a native resolution of 3440 x 1440 and a 21:9 aspect ratio. The technology used in its creation lends itself to producing a wide color range and a high-quality image. It features a combination of Optronics adaptive mini-LED technology, full-array local dimming (FALD) based on mini-LED backlighting, and MSI’s quantum dot premium films. The monitor is likely to provide high contrasts, deep blacks, and high brightness. The superior imagery should come at no expense to gaming, as the MSI MEG Artymis also has a 165Hz refresh rate and a response time of 1 millisecond. The screen also features a rather sharp 1000R arc curvature and an 800R center curvature.
The MSI MEG 551U OLED features a very large and widescreen, it promises high image quality for those who enjoy gaming on huge displays. Both of these screens are directed at the premium sector. The curved model seems to combine everything most users wish to see in one of the best gaming monitors — fantastic image quality and high refresh rates. This combination makes it suited for both fast-paced shooters and immersive RPGs.
The pricing of these new monitors hasn’t been announced just yet, but it’s clear that they may not be cheap. MSI teased that both the screens will be available for sale sometime in 2022.
