MSI announces the first 27-inch gaming monitor with 500hz VRR , QHD resolution and MiniLED-backlight

Revealed during CES2024 , the display measures 27″ in size and is built around a Rapid IPS panel sourced from AU Optronics. Featuring a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and a 0.5ms G2G response time specification (though it's advisable to approach this figure with caution), the screen impresses with a 500Hz refresh rate. We anticipate support for this high refresh rate through adaptive-sync, catering to variable refresh rates on compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems.

The display comes equipped with a versatile stand that offers tilt, height, swivel, and rotate adjustments. Connectivity options include 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC), 2x HDMI 2.1, and 1x USB type-C (supporting DP Alt mode and 90W power delivery). Additionally, there are 2x USB data ports and a headphone out for added convenience, as outlined in the specifications card from the event below.

This display not only features an exceptionally high refresh rate but also boasts a Mini LED backlight with an impressive 1152 local dimming zones. This configuration promises top-tier HDR performance and advanced dimming capabilities. According to MSI, the display can achieve a peak brightness of 1000 nits.

MSI should offer more info about this model later this year. There are no official details regarding release date nor pricing.
