HDR is also supposed to be supported, but it will not be displayed very convincingly due to the low brightness of 250 nits as well as the missing local dimming zones. Two HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.2 are on board.
For a better ergonomic position of the monitor, it can be tilted by -5° to 20°), adjusted in height by up to 90mm and swiveled by +/- 30°. The MSI Optix MAG342CQ is also suitable for multi-monitor setups due to its low side bezel.
The Optix MAG342CG differs slightly from its sister model MSI MAG342CQR, which was introduced in January. However, not by the curvature - announced the CQR was one of the world&s first monitors with the large curvature of 1000R, Contrary to the announcement but then came to market with only 1500R.
