January 8, 2018 — PC gaming today makes the leap to a giant screen, with NVIDIA’s introduction of the Big Format Gaming Display, or BFGD.
Created in conjunction with NVIDIA hardware partners Acer, ASUS and HP, the BFGD integrates a high-end 65-inch, 4K 120Hz HDR display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology together with NVIDIA SHIELD. The combination delivers a buttery-smooth gaming experience and your favourite media streaming applications — all on a giant screen.
The Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) Revealed!
At the heart of the BFGD is the G-SYNC HDR technology that synchronises 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-array direct backlight, 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 color gamut for the ultimate in visual quality.
Ultra-Low Latency Gaming
Nothing is more important to gamers than responsive gameplay. G-SYNC technology brings the ultra-low latency found in G-SYNC desktop gaming monitors to the BFGD when gaming directly on the PC, Android, another console or using NVIDIA GameStream technology from a desktop or laptop gaming PC.
Big Screen Streaming
The integration of the Android TV-based SHIELD into BFGDs allows gamers to easily switch between gaming and other forms of entertainment. The bundled SHIELD remote and game controller allow for easy navigation and access to all of the world’s biggest streaming apps, including Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, and Hulu.
With support for the Google Assistant, the entire experience can be controlled simply by using your voice. G-SYNC HDR technology also supports video playback at native framerates, including popular 23.976, 24 and 25 FPS formats. This matches the screen’s refresh rate to the video source’s actual frame rate, eliminating interpolation and presenting the video content as it was intended to be viewed by the director.
BFGD Availability and Pricing
Various BFGD models are available for hands-on demos at CES at the NVIDIA gaming suite and ASUS ROG showcase room at the Wynn Las Vegas by appointment only, and in the HP booth at the Pepcom and Showstoppers press events on Monday and Tuesday evening, respectively.
General availability is expected this summer when pricing and further specifications will be announced.
