The new Optix MAG272C monitor has a 1500R curvature, with MSI designing the new monitor with gamer and content creators as their key market. MSI has used very thin bezels that will allow gamers and content creators to use the Optix MAG272C in a triple-monitor setup, without chunky bezels in between.

That's where the 1500R curvature comes into play, as you would have a near-perfect 180-degree triple-monitor rig surrounding you. The addition of the super-smooth 165Hz refresh rate is a big help for gamers, and once again for triple-screen use flowing your mouse across 3 monitors.
