Curved gaming monitors are nothing new, but out of no where, Corsair has revealed a new curved gaming ultrawide with a unique quirk. Known as the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED, this new monitor is a 45 inch 3440 x 1440 240Hz ultrawide featuring an OLED panel from LG. But the quirk is its ability to bend into a curved state.
The idea is that users can keep the monitor flat when, for example, watching movies or working on a spreadsheet, then bend it by hand all the way up to that 800R curve for enjoying more immersion in games.
The Xeneon Flex's maximum curvature is 800R, but you can pick any curvature that suits you. It supports both Nvidia's G-Sync and AMD's FreeSync Premium variable refresh rate technologies, and there are a bevy of both front and back connectors including HDMI, DisplayPort, USB-C, USB-A, and a headphone jack.
Corsair says image retention, one of the biggest concerns with any OLED monitor, is addressed using a "sophisticated burn-in prevention system which operates when both powered on, and when switched off." So confident that this will prevent problems, the company offers a three-year Zero Burn In warranty alongside its Zero Dead Pixel Warranty.
The Xeneon Flex isn't an entirely new idea. Back at CES 2021, LG itself had a similar prototype on display at its booth, featuring a 48-inch flexible OLED panel that, at the push of a button, would slowly morph between a completely flat screen to one with a gentle curve that better filled a gamer's peripheral vision. But as with most prototypes, LG's demo was hands-off. It also used a motorized mechanism to gently bend and unbend the display.
