The benefit of curved monitor

By Quan |
To get the most complete gaming experience, it is important to know how to choose a monitor. If you are considering purchasing a monitor, we recommend checking out a curved monitor. Let us introduce the benefits of a curved display.

Immersion

When you walk into a movie theater, you can see that the screen isn't flat but curved. Although people view from different angles, they all get the same experience with better immersion. So why can you experience more immersion when you view on a curved screen?It's because the perspective of human eyes is not flat. The perspective is closer to a curved shape. So looking at a curved screen gives us a more realistic experience.

Less eye fatigue and wider field of view

A curved monitor helps reduce eye fatigue because its curvature physically matches human eyes’ shape, so your eyes tend to feel more relieved when you look at the screen from a short distance.
Because the screen is curved, the distance between your eyes and the screen remains the same. If you use a properly sized monitor, you don’t need to move your head or neck to watch something on your monitor. You can watch everything on the screen by only moving your eyes.

What is the curvature?

Currently, there are many levels of curved monitors on the market. But what does the number represent? For example, 1000R refers to a curved monitor radius of one meter. The lower the number is, the more curved the monitor is and wider the field of view is. When you are playing games or watching a video, you can enjoy a more immersive experience.

Console mode

Additionally, the MPG ARTYMIS 343CQR offers some optimization for gaming consoles. It can support FHD 120hz on PS5 so that you can enjoy high fps games with 1000R curvature. If you want to play on a higher resolution like 1440P on PS5, this model can automatically accept 4K signals and support HDR simultaneously on the UWQHD monitor. Since PS5 does not support 1440P, downscale from 4K on your monitor is the way to get the best gaming experience on QHD/UWQHD monitors.
