Introducing Big Format Game Displays (BFGD)

Introducing Big Format Game Displays (BFGD)

NVIDIA is partnering with ASUS, Acer and HP to build these displays - a particularly interesting group of partners, since they don't have experience building big-screen displays.

That's Big Format Gaming Display if you're wondering, though we could come up with a few other creative interpretations. Start with a 65-inch 4K panel, but then add in a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR support. What's more, BFGDs have ultra-low input latency, just like a PC gaming monitor, for the most fluid and responsive big screen gaming experience. Many games won't even need that if they're not especially demanding, and with G-Sync and that 120Hz to help things along the result should be spectacular. But what if you could have the best of both? They're also created to do the same when using Nvidia's GameStream technology too, which is a good job as the BFGDs are set to come with integrated SHIELD devices built into them. G-SYNC HDR technology also supports video playback at native framerates, including popular 23.976, 24 and 25 FPS formats. It's the world's first big-screen PC gaming display, specifically designed for enthusiast gamers seeking the ultimate 4K PC gaming experience. Of course, lowering latency is an important issue and these new displays will reduce it to a single millisecond.

If it was April Fool's Day I might be questioning this announcement, but Asus, Acer, and HP are bringing these BFGDs - that DOOM reference is definitely not accidental - to market in the summer.

No other features or pricing as been announced as of now. And when you finally stop playing PC games for the day you'll receive a fantastic experience playing NVIDIA SHIELD games, streaming content, using Plex and Kodi, watching movies and TV shows, playing on consoles, and watching livestreamed TV.
