Again, it's "Big Format Gaming Display", even it's really "Big Effing Gaming Display". Which makes for an unbelievable gaming experience. BFGDs integrate a high-end 65-inch, 4K 120Hz HDR display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology together with NVIDIA SHIELD.
Nvidia opened up its CES 2018 announcements with Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) standard or technology, which should change the way gaming is done on big living room TVs.
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.
NVIDIA has also introduced Freestyle filters which will start processing according to the game you are playing. This device, has typically been available as a separate box, but is now just an app that lets you access 4K HDR video from IPTV apps like Amazon, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube as well as many other key channels. NVIDIA did not also reveal how much they will cost.
The integrated NVIDIA Shield means that when you aren't gaming you are able to use the Shield technology to stream TV and watch movies.
NVIDIA is well known in the gaming industry for their GPUs for PCs and Notebooks. Asus, and Acer have previously partnered with Nvidia at the launch of G-Sync, and continue to make G-Sync PC monitors, so it makes sense.
Unfortunately, we still do not have any details regarding the price or the precise availability date but we will surely keep an eye out for them.
The screen will feature G-Sync so that there is no tearing and the experience is as immersive as it can get.
The first company to provide me with a press release is Acer, with their monitor using the Predator branding found on many of their gaming orientated systems.
