Straight off the bat, the monitor is aimed at the esports market boasting the 240Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 1920x1080p a 1ms response time and also features Nvidia G-Sync.

Like many monitors that are aimed at providing top-notch performance at a relatively lower production cost, this monitor has a TN panel that helps companies produce high performing monitors with a fraction of the cost as compared to ones with IPS or VA panels. The IPS or VA panels are preferred over TN panels because of the better colour reproduction and in professional workspace environments. Since the monitor is aimed at the gamer that prioritises performance over colour reproduction, the TN panel will do just fine.

Although this is an early release MSI is still yet to comment on the availability and pricing of the model. It will be interesting to see how it is priced since there isn’t much competition in the 240Hz category for monitors.
