According to MSI, the 27-inch WQHD resolution offers 32.9 percent more pixels per inch than a normal Full HD monitor. The MSI MEG 271Q also supports the Nvidia Reflex Analyzer which can show latency and input delay so users can solve problems for optimal gameplay.

According to the company, the new gaming monitor MSI MEG 271Q offers DCI: P3 coverage of 97 percent.
