Nvidia announces 120Hz, G-Sync "Big Format Gaming Displays"
Nvidia has surprised us, revealing a new product that we think nobody was expecting, a device that does not fit into a traditional product category, neither as a TV or as a monitor. Nvidia calls this product a Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD), integrating a 65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR screen with G-Sync technology with a Nvidia Shield to offer a Nvidia smart-TV-like experience with Nvidia G-Sync support.
This is not a G-Sync TV; it does not support traditional programming. What Nvidia has revealed here is an Android Shield TV that is built into a supersized 4K 120Hz G-Sync HDR monitor, offering PC gamers the ultimate large screen gaming experience.
Acer, ASUS and HP will be creating Nvidia BFGD's, delivering ultra-low latency input, a full direct-array backlight and the capability of supporting up to 1,000 nits of brightness and the DCI-P3 colour gamut for a top-tier HDR gaming experience. With this display's built-in Shield technology Nvidia's BFGD's will also support all of Nvidia Shield's Android TV features with Google Assistant and Nvidia GameStream support.
PC gaming today makes the leap to a giant screen, with NVIDIA’s introduction of big format gaming displays, or BFGDs™. Created in conjunction with NVIDIA hardware partners Acer, ASUS and HP, BFGDs integrate a high-end 65-inch, 4K 120Hz HDR display with NVIDIA® G-SYNC® technology together with NVIDIA SHIELD™, the world’s most advanced streaming device. The combination delivers a buttery-smooth gaming experience and your favorite media streaming applications — all on a giant screen.
These ultra-low latency panels feature our latest G-SYNC HDR technology that synchronize the display’s 120Hz refresh rate to that of the game at every moment in time. This G-SYNC Variable Refresh Rate technology delivers a highly responsive, smooth, tear-free, immersive gaming experience unmatched by any display of this size. Additionally, the 4K HDR display features a full direct-array backlight, 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 color gamut for the ultimate in visual quality. Not to mention all the features of SHIELD TV are integrated – including the Google Assistant and NVIDIA GameStream.
At this time we do not have pricing or availability information for these products or a firm release date, though we expect these products later this year.
