With the bendable OLED gaming monitor Corsair XENEON FLEX, the manufacturer presented one of the hottest technical innovations of 2022 just in time for gamescom 2022 and also showed us in practice. Now, four months later, the monitor is finally available for pre-order.
The Corsair XENEON FLEX launches
It was a real revolution that Corsair presented to us at gamescom 2022. A gaming monitor that can transform from a flat display to a curved monitor (with 800R curvature) with just a flick of the wrist? With an OLED panel? And a screen diagonal of 45 inches? Hallelujah.
As the manufacturer now announces, the innovative Corsair XENEON FLEX is now available for pre-order. The recommended retail price for the German market is 2,399.99 euros. Delivery is scheduled for the end of December 2022, which means that the monitor can take its place in your gaming or living room right at the start of the new year.
What’s inside the Corsair XENEON FLEX?
The Corsair XENEON FLEX offers just about everything you could want in a gaming monitor. It was developed together with LG Display and relies on a 45-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 21:9.
The brightness of up to 1,000 nits is also impressive, while the contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1, typical for OLEDs, is clearly superior to IPS or VA panels. The whole thing is combined with a frame rate of 240 hertz with a gray-to-grey response time of only 0.01 milliseconds.
LG, by the way, presented a very similar concept of its own at IFA 2022. However, the LG Flex LX3 is a curvaceous OLED TV with 4K resolution and 120 hertz.
Pretty impressive. But that’s still not it. The near-instant pixel on/off time of 0.01 ms pretty much eliminates motion blur, plus the monitor is compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium.
The Corsair XENEON FLEX 45 comes with a three-year warranty, which also includes a zero-dead pixel warranty as well as a zero-burn-in warranty. So, defective pixels are covered as well as burn-in.
In terms of ports, the OLED gaming monitor offers 2x HDMI 2.1, 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 1x USB Type-C DP Alt Mode. The color space coverage is also more than respectable with 100 percent sRGB and 98.5 percent DCI-P3. Thus, the monitor is also suitable for professional users.
