MSI Adds 31.5" AG32CQ to Optix Gaming Monitor Lineup

New WQHD Curved FreeSync Display from MSI

MSI has just put up a product page for a new addition to their Optix gaming monitor lineup. This Optix AG32CQ is a 31.5” LED backlit 1800R curved panel capable of up to 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution. As far as gaming credentials go, it has 1ms response time, a 144Hz refresh and is AMD FreeSync compatible.

The monitor’s WQHD is the perfect size for gamers who find 4K UHD to be too big. Moreover, it is also ideal for users who would rather put in money on a good monitor than spend money on a new GPU. Especially with the state of GPU pricing currently. After all, even a GTX 1080 finds it hard to drive 4K UHD gaming smoothly at 60fps.
