MSI Launches 27-inch Rapid IPS WQHD Esports Monitor in White

Back in the day, most computer monitors came in some kind of beige or off-white, but these days most monitors come in black, so seeing an almost entirely white monitor is rather uncommon. MSI’s new G274QRFW delivers just that, with a white front bezel, white sides, a white stand and a mostly white back, except for a small RGB element which is covered in black plastic. The display panel measures 27-inches, is of the rapid IPS type and has a native resolution of 2560 x 1440. It supports refresh rates of up to 170 Hz over DisplayPort 1.4 or 144 Hz over HDMI 2.0b. MSI has also implemented a console mode that does 120 Hz at 1080p.

The panel is of the regular 8-bit + FRC type, has a 1 ms response time and a 300 NITS brightness, with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and it supports 125 percent of the SRGB colour gamut. The G274QRFW supports AMD Freesync Premium and is G-Sync compatible, with a refresh rate range of 48 to 170 Hz. MSI has also implemented what the company calls Night Vision, which helps brighten up dark scenes in games. The monitor also features anti-flicker technology and what MSI calls Less Blue Light Pro, which reduces the blue light emitted by the display.
