CES 2018 News: NVIDIA launch BFGD 65-inch 4K HDR Gaming Display with SHIELD TV
Big screen gaming like never before
NVIDIA has announced a bit of a surprise product at CES 2018 in the form a 65-inch 4K HDR gaming display with built-in SHIELD TV functionality
Among all the big TV announcement, NVIDIA is urging PC gamers not to be tempted by the buzzwords and shiny tech as none of the big-screen displays will deliver the experience you deserve as they’ll lack high refresh rates, low latency , PC-tuned HDR, and G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. Enter NVIDIA’s Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) which is billed as the world’s first big-screen PC gaming display, specifically designed for enthusiast gamers.
The first BFGDs, coming later this year from ACER, ASUS and HP, are 65 inches, run at 4K at 120Hz, have G-SYNC technology, HDR with 1000 nit peak brightness, and an integrated NVIDIA SHIELD, giving you access to Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube at 4K, NVIDIA GameStream, Android games and apps, and more.
To achieve this. NVIDIA has been working for over two years with major panel producer AU Optronics to create and perfect 4K and 3440x1440 G-SYNC HDR displays with ‘lightning-fas’t response times, PC-optimized HDR with 1000 nit peak brightness, full array backlights, Quantum Dot Enhancement Films, and DCI-P3 cinema-quality colour gamuts And now, for BFGDs, they’ve created a 65” 4K 120Hz G-SYNC HDR panel with all of those features, and a full array direct backlight for the best big-screen PC gaming experience.
When you’re not gaming you can switch over to the integrated NVIDIA SHIELD. For home and remote playback there’s best-in-class Plex and Kodi support; for extra gaming fun there are Android games and exclusive conversions of classic titles, such as Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3; for remote PC playing there’s GeForce NOW and GameStream. By using G-SYNC’s variable refresh rate technology, and a true 120Hz panel, BFGDs can be set to a genuine 24 Hz, perfectly matching the framerate of the source material. This also holds true for 48 FPS High Frame Rate content, 23.976 FPS U.S. broadcast television shows, and the framerate of any other media you access.
