MSI has announced two new gaming monitors that are the first to work with Steelseries’ GameSense lighting system. What does that mean? It means a lot of colored LEDs on the bottom edge and rear. GameSense lets you program these RGB lights to flash in sync with in-game things like cooldown timers, or for notifications in apps like Discord.

Otherwise, the Optic MPG27CQ and MPG27CQ are pretty standard gaming monitors. Both are curved 27-inch VA panels with a 144Hz refresh rate, and the only difference is that the former is 1080p and the latter is 1440p. Pricing and release info isn’t yet available.
