When it comes to getting the latest and greatest PC gaming hardware, it all falls short if you don’t have a monitor that is capable of taking full advantage of it. Having an RTX 4090 or AMD RX 7900 XTX, paired with the latest processors from Intel and AMD will result in incredible gaming performance. However, if you have a Full HD 60Hz monitor, you are certainly won’t reap the full benefit of such hardware. That’s where the MSI Optix MPG32IUR-QD comes into play.
MSI Optix MPG321UR-QD
This monitor features a 4K resolution, which is already a big upgrade over Full HD, at 4x the resolution, meaning you’ll be using a lot more of that GPU and CPU power. However, it also features an impressive 120Hz refresh rate, increasing the hardware demand from Full HD 60Hz by roughly 8x, and also requiring a bigger increase in VRAM to deal with the higher resolution textures, and at the same time, a faster Gen4 or Gen5 SSD will also be prefered to ensure you can load those larger assets to feed the increased demands to the graphics card. Thankfully, we have such a system to hand, with the Intel Core i7-13700KF processors and the latest MSI RTX 4090 Suprim 24G graphics card.
As my original point was about monitors, it’s all about the MSI Optix MPG32IUR-QD today.
