The MSI MPG Artymis 343CQR has a 34in diagonal with a 3440x1440 resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio. The eye-catching 1000R curve dominates the MSI, and it's tighter than the 1800R and 1900R designs on rivals. The smaller radius means that this display does a better job of wrapping around the user than other displays, which makes gaming more immersive. You'll also need a powerful graphics card to handle this display.

The MSI MPG Artymis 343CQR is one of the most ambitious curved gaming monitors on the market. It has a 1000R design alongside loads of high-end features – but with more curved displays arriving, that means big competition. MSI's screen has AMD FreeSync that runs at 165Hz, so it's easily fast enough to make single-player games look butter-smooth. Out of the box, the MSI's brightness of 202 nits combines with a 0.06-nit black point for a contrast ratio of 3367:1. The MSI renders 99.1% of the sRGB gamut at 120% volume, which means every shade on the s RGB gamut is bright and bold.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive 240Hz refresh rate
  • Fantastic build quality
  • Impressive contrast ratio
Cons[**]
  • Not suitable for gaming or content creation
