Last September we reviewed the first display to be launched by PC component manufacturer Corsair, and were impressed by the performance of their Xeneon 32QHD165 display. This week Corsair have launched two new models in this Xeneon range, the 32UHD144 and 32QHD240. Thankfully they have opted for simple and logical naming schemes here and we will explain the specs and features in a moment. Both are 32″ in size and offer high refresh rates, very much aimed at gamers.
Corsair Xeneon 32UHD144 Specs
The first model is 32″ in size and has a 3840 x 2160 (Ultra HD) resolution IPS panel. This is combined with a 144Hz refresh rate, and supported by adaptive sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. It is certified under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ and NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ schemes. There is a 1ms response time spec advertised as well, although Corsair list this as being relevant for the ‘fastest’ mode.
Quantum Dot coating provides a wide colour gamut with 100% sRGB, 98% DCI-P3 and 100% Adobe RGB quoted. The screen also enhances it’s HDR capabilities compared with their first screen last year, upping to the DisplayHDR 600 certification which now requires at least some basic edge-lit local dimming to be featured, and also provides an increased peak brightness. This is still fairly low-end HDR but it’s a step up to last year’s model (32QHD165).
Connectivity wise there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.1 (console-relevant features not listed) and (we believe) 2x USB type-C provided (not clear on DP Alt support or power delivery). There is also an integrated USB 3.1 hub and audio connection. Tilt, height and swivel adjustments are offered from the stand.
Corsair Xeneon 32QHD240 Specs
This screen is also 32″ in size but has a lower resolution 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD) IPS panel. This model has a higher refresh rate though of 240Hz, again supported by adaptive sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. It is certified under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ and NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ schemes. There is a 1ms response time spec advertised as well, although Corsair list this as being relevant for the ‘fastest’ mode.
This model also has Quantum Dot coating for a wide colour gamut (98% DCI-P3, 100% sRGB, 100% Adobe RGB) and HDR 600 certification. There are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0 (this is listed as HDMI 2.1 on some parts of their product page, but we believe them to be 2.0) and 2x USB type-C ports provided on this model. 2x USB 3.1 and audio connections are also provided. The stand has tilt, height and swivel adjustments again.
Pricing and Availability
The Corsair Xeneon 32UHD144 and Xeneon 32QHD240 are backed by a three-year warranty, alongside the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network.
