MSI Launches Pre-orders For 5K2K Ultrawide Prestige PS341WU Monitor

MSI 5K2K Ultrawide Prestige PS341WU Monitor

Following the announcement of its latest Prestige PS341WU monitor earlier this year, MSI has confirmed it is now available for pre-order for the princely sum of $1999.99.

As the name indicates, the Prestige PS341WU is one prestigious monitor offering users an ultrawide 34-inch display racking up to a staggering resolution of 5120×2160 with an aspect ratio of 21:9.

The monitor is geared towards photoshop work and video editing rather specifically for gaming. The ultrawide screen that MSI is calling 5K2K offers a horizontally stretched native 4K display. It might not suit gaming per se but could prove useful in real-time strategy games where that extra space to survey the battlefield is crucial to winning and losing games.

MSI’s marketing blurb says the Prestige PS341WU offers a ”4K full-size window and a buffer workspace to preview the content simultaneously to bring you a more efficient multi-tasking experience.” So it’s 4K with a little more on the side.

It does have its limitations, though. The refresh rate sits at a relatively low 60Hz, while the gray-to-gray response time racks up to 8 ms, and there’s no support for either NVIDIA G-Sync nor AMD FreeSync equivalent.

The Prestige PS341WU does, however, offer 7 billion accurate color gamut, IPS Nano Color, 1200:1 contrast, 98% DCI-P3, 100% SRGB, a slew of connectivity options like HDMI 2.0, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A/B, DisplayPort 1.4., and VESA Certified DisplayHDR 600 for excellent brightness levels.

The MSI Prestige PS341WU launches in just a few short days on September 16th. Will you be laying down your hard-earned cash for one? Let us know in the comments below!
