We have come a long way in terms of pc gaming monitors in just 10 years. Monitors a decade ago relied on LEDs. Most were large, square contraptions with plastic stands. Fast forward to today when Corsair introduced its new 45-inch Xeneon Flex flexible OLED monitor at gamescom in Cologne, Germany.
The Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is a flagship monitor with 45 inches of beautiful 3440 x 1440 resolution. But even more impressive is that if you want to transform the monitor from a flat screen to a curved screen, you just fold it!
Make no mistake, this monitor is massive. It has an insane 21:9 aspect ratio that offers cinema-level viewing real estate. This goes beyond an ultrawide monitor. We’re not even sure what aspect ratio category the Xeneon Flex has fallen into, but it’s got us drooling.
Combine that with a 240Hz refresh rate and LG OLED technology, and you have a massive monitor that hits up to 1,000 nits of brightness without breaking a sweat. That could mean it’s also an HDR capable panel. Of course, it also supports Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync standards to prevent screen tearing.
And then there is the crease.
This screen can be folded. You can keep it as a flat screen to watch movies or play strategy games, but when you need to be immersed in a battle royale FPS, you just grab the sides and pull them towards you. It can be bent to a curve of 800R.
Corsair has always been a keen gaming company, and they’ve delivered products like the Xeneon 32UHD144 monitor, K70 Mini wireless gaming keyboard, and of course gaming headsets. But the Fremont, California company just released the world’s first flexible monitor, and now we want one.
Corsair will release availability and pricing details on the Xeneon Flex monitor later this year.
