MSI MAG 323UPF Specs
The screen is 32″ in size and has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution IPS-type panel. There is a 1ms G2G response time spec, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 440 cd/m2 brightness (SDR), 178/178 viewing angles, an 8-bit+FRC colour depth (supporting 10-bit content) and a wide colour gamut backlight covering 95% of the DCI-P3 reference, along with 93.6% Adobe RGB and ~125.7% sRGB.
The screen also has a native 160Hz refresh rate, and this is supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems. This has a VRR range of 48 – 160Hz, and the screen is also expected to include certifications under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium Pro’ and NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ schemes.
In terms of HDR the screen conforms to the VESA DisplayHDR 600 tier, which requires a peak brightness of 600 nits, support for 10-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut. It also requires some kind of local dimming, with simple edge-lit dimming included here.
Connectivity and Stand
The screen has 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC), 2x HDMI 2.1 and 1x USB type-C (with DP Alt mode and 90W power delivery) for video. MSI mention the HDMI 2.1 ports as supporting “up to 48Gbps”, and being able to support the full 4K @160Hz, although additional features like HDMI-VRR that can be useful for consoles are not listed.
There are also 3x USB data ports and a headphone connection available. The screen can support multiple video inputs with various PiP and PbP modes, and also includes a KVM function. The stand features tilt, height and swivel adjustments.
Availability and Pricing
The MAG 323UPF is expected to be available soon at a retail price ~$700 USD.
