MSI MPG ARTYMIS 323CQR
It’s extremely well equipped, and actually, I bet within this review, I fail to mention everything it has or can do; the list is too long! Let’s start with the panel, which features a lovely 1000R curve over a 16:9 32″ play area giving it a very natural look while you’re working or gaming. It features 2560 x 1440 resolution and a 165 Hz refresh rate with a 1ms response time, so it’s really sitting in a sweet spot for gamers. Another welcome feature is the console mode, which will output at FHD/WQHD@120Hz, and can use 2K Resolution PS5 Optimization. However, it’ll actually accept a 4K signal from the device, netting a better scaled image quality overall.
