Nvidia has unveiled a new “technology” called Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs) during its CES 2018 presentation earlier today. BFGDs are basically displays made by several manufacturers, which feature G-Sync HDR and Nvidia Shield built in. In addition, these monitors come with 4K resolution and 120Hz refresh rates as well.
To be more specific, Nvidia’s Big Format Gaming Displays are 65-inch monitors that are not exclusively made by Nvidia itself. Instead, manufacturers like Acer, Asus, and HP will be making the monitors and they will be aided by Nvidia in terms of technology implementation. These monitors are, of course, aimed at PC gamers who want high performance and instant response times from larger-than-normal displays.
What makes Big Format Gaming Displays even more interesting is the fact that Nvidia has equipped them with Shield TV as well. This means that not only will gamers experience low latency gaming with G-Synch HDR, they will also be able to access well known video streaming apps along with features such as Nvidia GameStream and Google Assistant.
The thought of having a 65-inch display optimised for low latency and ultra high quality gaming may no doubt tempt plenty of PC gamers. Unfortunately, prices of Big Format Gaming Displays were not mentioned by Nvidia, but we do expect them to be priced similarly (maybe even higher) to consumer-grade 65-inch TVs.
