PAX AUS 2018: MSI bring their ESL-approved 244Hz Oculux gaming monitor to Australia

Rounding out their usual offering of gaming laptops and giveaways, MSI's booth at this year's PAX Australia also saw the company show off its new 244Hz Oculux gaming monitor.

First shown at this year's Computex, the gaming monitor pairs up a top-notch spec-sheet with sharp looks and G-Sync support.

The MSI Oculux features a 244Hz refresh rate, 0.5ms response time, 300 nits of brightness and support for Nvidia's G-Sync display tech.

The other cool detail here is that MSI told us that the Oculux has been adopted by the ESL as the organisation's official gaming monitor in 2019 for ESL One events.

The only catch here is that the price and the fact that it's only available in a single sizing of 24.5-inches - which may limit its appeal for those who prefer a larger display.

The MSI Oculux NXG251 gaming monitor will be available from December (via MSI's usual partners) at an expected retail price of $750.

Disclosure - MSI covered the cost of our flights and accommodation for PAX Australia 2018.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
