MSI, a world leader in gaming hardware and computing solutions, announces the availability of a trio of gaming monitors, including the MSI Optix MAG251RX Esports gaming monitor. The ultimate esports display, Optix MAG251RX is a 24.5-inch IPS monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time panel, and a plethora of technologies that deliver a smooth and immersive gaming experience.

MSI’s Optix MAG251RX is the preferred gaming monitor for gamers worldwide, including HU Storm, Harrisburg University’s championship esports team. The monitor enhances competitiveness through fast and smooth graphics with NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible technology, which dynamically matches the refresh rate of the display to the frame rate of the GPU, guaranteeing smooth and tear-free gameplay.

“We listened to our fans and created the perfect gaming monitor for both recreational and professional gamers,” said Andy Tung (CEO of MSI USA). “It thoughtfully combines technologies like 240Hz refresh rate with features like Night Vision to allow gaming at peak performance for extended amounts of time without causing eye fatigue.” 

MSI’s Optix MAG251RX is a VESA Certified DisplayHDR™ 400 monitor, a verification only given to high-performance monitors and displays based on color gamut accuracy, luminance, and more. HDR400 monitors deliver better contrast and colors at higher refresh rates, increasing its ability to handle a wide range of applications, from gaming, movies, and content creation. 

Optix MAG251RX gaming monitor can be connected via Type-C ports, comes with Mystic Light for personalization, and is equipped with Gaming OSD– APP 2.0 software, giving gamers the ability to control the display with a software window, change display settings and program hotkeys while gaming.

MSI’s Optix G241 and Optix G271 gaming monitors offer an unparalleled combination of performance and value with AMD’s FreeSync technology.

Both monitors also have Wide Color Gamut, displaying more vivid, refined and realistic gameplay colors for maximum immersion.
