The curved screen finds its place in gaming monitors

BERLIN, September 2 (Benin Actu/EP) –

Video game monitors are gaining ground at IFA Berlin, a trade show focused on consumer electronics and household appliances that this year brings together proposals from various brands in which the curve seems to have found its niche in the world of video games.

Screens that convert from a flat to a curved format have become a reality, freeing the user from having to choose between one form factor or another. Corsair previewed the new product line at Gamescom, with its XENEON FLEX 45WQHD240 monitor and flexible panel made by LG.

It is precisely the South Korean company that presented at IFA a TV, LG OLED Flex, with a flexible 42-inch OLED screen, which starts from a flat form factor and supports up to twenty levels different curvature, up to a maximum of 900R.

The curve is also present in the ULtraGear OLED gaming monitor, the first of this brand to integrate OLED technology, with a refresh rate of 240Hz and an UltraWide 21:9 aspect ratio. It combines a 45-inch waist with an 800R curvature.

Another proposal with a curved screen is the one made by Samsung with the Odyssey OLED G8 G85SB monitor, also the first “gaming” monitor of this brand with OLED panel, although in this case with a smaller diagonal, 34 inches. And for greater immersion, it features an 1800R curvature.

Samsung also showed off the Odyssey Ark monitor at IFA. This one is already on the market, where it offers a diagonal of 55 inches with a curvature of 1000R. This particular model allows you to view content in landscape or portrait format, thanks to its support.
