The latest gaming monitor from Corsair has a curved screen.
Having trouble choosing between a flat and curved monitor? With the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240, a flexible OLED gaming monitor that you can practically bend by hand to swap form factors, Corsair believes it may have the answer to your (admittedly narrow) problems.
The W-OLED panel from LG Display, with whom Corsair closely collaborated to design the Xeneon Flex, enables the changing display. Interestingly, Corsair requires you to manually bend its monitor into shape with a pair of handles that extend from the left and right sides of the display, as this video from YouTuber Bitwit explains. This is in contrast to a prototype LG Display displayed at CES last year that used motors to transform between flat and curved modes. Even though it’s not exactly apparent why you’d want to, you can individually alter the left and right sides of the monitor’s curvature, which is entertaining.
Due to the fact that curved and flat screens are typically better at various tasks, the monitor is an intriguing notion. For more productivity, some individuals prefer flat panels because they provide a less distorted view and are less likely to amplify reflections. Some individuals despise curved screens intensely. However, other people like the immersive experience that a curved screen can provide, especially for gaming because, at the correct size and distance, the screen tends to completely occupy your peripheral vision.
Corsair’s monitor has a 45-inch 21:9 ultrawide display, a 240Hz refresh rate, and a maximum brightness of 1000 nits. The Xeneon Flex can curve up to 800R, but you may choose whatever curvature you choose. There are several front and rear interfaces, including HDMI, DisplayPort, USB-C, USB-A, and a headphone jack, and it supports both Nvidia’s G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync Premium variable frame rate technology.
Even though Chinese TV producer Skyworth revealed its own flexible morphing TV last year, Corsair’s Xeneon Flex still has a good possibility of being one of the first such products to be released on a worldwide scale. Unfortunately, there is currently no information available on when that would occur or the cost associated with the privilege. More details on the launch, availability, and exact specifications will be revealed later this year, according to Corsair.
