Product Overview

MSI Optix MAG322CQR is a 32-inch 1500R-curved QHD gaming monitor with 1ms response time and 165Hz refresh rate. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium and USB-C connectivity and comes with a built-in USB hub.
Compared to the MAG322CQRV, the Optix MAG322CQR comes with richer color reproduction, higher refresh rate, and USB-C connectivity but is otherwise identical. The monitor also comes with MSI's Mystic Light RGB lighting.
The Optix MAG322CQR is engineered to be flicker-free and to emit less blue light, making it better for eye comfort.
Two sister models of the MAG322CQR are the FHD MAG322CR and the QHD MAG322CQRV, while the G32CQ4 is also an interesting alternative.
