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

Remember those days from our childhood when all computer monitors used to have an off whitish finish and no other color? Well, times changed and the more modern display units started to come out in more elegant blacks. MSI, however, is planning to take us back to those days with its new G274QRFW. This latest monitor is almost entirely white – it has white sides, white front bezels, a white stand, and even the back is mostly white. The only thing in black is a small RGB element in plastic.


The G274QRFW is a 27-inches, IPS type display panel with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. It has a refresh rate of up to 17 Hz, a Display Port of 1.4, and HDMI 2.0b. There is also going to be a console mode which will deliver 120 Hz at 1080p.

The panel is a standard 8-bit + FRC type with a response time of 1 ms and a 300 NITS brightness. It will extend support for 125% of SRGB color gamut and has a contrast ratio of 1000:1. It will feature the AMD Freesync Premium and will be G-Sync compatible, with refresh rates ranging from 48 to 170 Hz. MSI has also worked on a ‘Night Vision’ which will make darker scenes appear brighter during games.

There is also going to be the company’s Less Blue Light Pro feature which is basically the anti-flicker technology and helps to significantly reduce the blue light emission.

This is all the information we have on the specs but so far there appears to be no news of the pricing or availability.
