Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240: Extravagant LG W-OLED gaming monitor debuts with 240 Hz refresh rate, 0.03 ms response times and a bendable design ↺
At this week's Gamescom 2022, Corsair introduced the Xeneon Flex, a gaming monitor that appears to rely on the same panel as the LG UltraGear 45GR95QE. Also known as the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240, the gaming monitor utilises an LG W-OLED panel that measures 45-inches across and operates at 3,440 x 1,440 pixels with a 240 Hz refresh rate. Additionally, the panel delivers up to 1,000 cd/m² of brightness and a 1,350,000:1 contrast ratio, unsurprising for an OLED panel.
Moreover, the display offers 0.03 ms response times (GtG) and pixel on-off times of 0.01 ms. Based on LG's specifications for the UltraGear 45GR95QE, the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 has lower response times and a higher contrast ratio, for some reason. Incidentally, Corsair has included AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC support to minimise image tearing while gaming.
Arguably the most exciting element of the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is its ability to work as a curved or a flat monitor. On the one hand, the monitor has up to an 800R curvature, but it can be manually adjusted using handles built into the monitor's frame. Unfortunately, Corsair has not revealed how much the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 will cost yet. Supposedly, the company will announce more details about the monitor later this year, although the date for this is also unclear.
