NVIDIA has just taken the kimono off a potential game-changer at the start of this week’s CES 2018. In partnership with ACER, HP and ASUS, the company has announced their Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGD) -- 65-inch monsters that seem to tick every single checkbox a gamer could want with their laundry list of premium features.
For gamers, BFGDs dangle the promise of the long awaited dream-monitor, with blazing fast 120Hz refresh rates at a crisp 4K resolution. Indeed, these big bodacious panels are packed with G-SYNC HDR that will sync the monitor's impressive refresh rate to GeForce graphics cards frame output for a silky-smooth, jitter-free gaming experience at 4K. Additionally, the 4K HDR display features a full-array direct backlight, 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 color gamut.
These new 65-inch NVIDIA BFGD monitors also come with the company’s NVIDIA SHIELD TV technology and features built-in, so you can easily jump from playing Destiny 2 to streaming Dispicable Me 2 using the streaming features of the SHIELD platform. SHIELD continues to leverage support for Google Assistant as well, so your viewing and gaming experience can be controlled via voice-command, as well as other home automation technologies from various IoT manufacturers.
These displays do look amazing. Unfortunately, the company and its partners are still very tight-lipped about pricing, but expect your wallet to weep in agony with these kind of specs and features. NVIDIA BFGD could redefine how hardcore, big screen gamers get their frag on with smart TV functionality to boot. However, we won't know for sure until we get our hands on a unit when they ship sometime in the Fall of 2018. Stay tuned, we're all over this like a cheap suit.
