MSI has this week unveiled two new additions to its range of MSI Optic monitors with the launch of the new MPG27C and MPG27CQ which are those first gaming monitors to be equipped with support for the SteelSeries’ GameSense technology. Enabling users to fully customise the five RGB panels positioned at the bottom on the front of the display, as you can see in the image above. The RGB zones can be programmed using the SteelSeries Engine software and used to alert players of in-game mode cool downs, Discord chat notifications and more. On the rear of the monitors more RGB lights provide extra illumination which can also be customised to your exact requirements.
