MSI Debuts 32-Inch 144Hz, 1440p Gaming Monitor

Posted by at 11:50 am on May 8, 2018

MSI has debuted on its website a new product page for its Optix AG32CQ, a 32-inch class monitor with a curved VA panel and 2560×1440 resolution. It’s essentially a higher resolution variant of the 1920×1080 non-Q model (AG32C).

The only other notable difference between the two is the refresh rate—it’s 144Hz on the new AG32CQ, versus the little higher 165Hz on the AG32C.

The new  monitor also is  rated 1ms response time and is compatible with AMD’s FreeSync technology for smoother gameplay. As to the image quality, MSI claims the AG32CQ covers 110 percent of the sRGB color space, and 85 percent of the NTSC color space.

This is not an HDR display—brightness is rated at 250 nits, which is lower than the 400 nits required for VESA’s entry-level DisplayHDR 400 certification. Other specs include a 3,000:1 contrast ratio (100,000,000:1 dynamic) and 178 degrees viewing angles.

There three display inputs—DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, and DVI. As with the non-Q model, there’s no built-in USB hub or speakers.

The Optix AG32CQ doesn’t appear to be widely available yet.
