The new big 4K HDR 65-inch displays are expected to satisfy all the gaming needs.
So I heard you like huge monitors.
The Nvidia BFGD, as the display has been named with BFGD standing for Big Format Gaming Display has been pulled off thanks to an active collaboration between Nvidia, HP, ACER, and Asus.
This 65-inch model features an eye-watering 4K display resolution, and promises a refresh rate of 120Hz – ideal for high-powered gaming. Xavier will fit into Nvidia’s DRIVE Pegasus AI platform. More details and features of the display will be released at a later stage.
In recent history the annual CES events in Las Vegas have been dominated by bigger, better, and more vibrant TVs.
Even though these are not televisions, the size of these monitors means they won’t really be used on a desk but more in a living room setup.
More than just big and handsome, these screens are full of bells and whistles. It’s kind of like those Roku-based smart TVs, where the Roku functionality is built directly into the TV. They’re large, sure, but they’re also top-of-the-line in terms of specs.
Also on Nvdia’s CES 2018 menu is an update to its GeForce Now game-streaming subscription service, and a few updates to its GeForce Experience desktop client.
The Predator BFGD features integrated NVIDIA SHIELD capabilities, so gamers can easily switch between gaming and other forms of entertainment. That’s definitely an option.
While you can buy a Nvidia Shield device separately and use it as a streaming device on almost any smart-TV, you won’t get the responsiveness or other optimizations that BFGD monitors offer.
Looking for a giant screen to play games without the latency issues?
So, how much do these massive screens cost? Pricing is now unavailable, though given the tantalising union of specs on display, they’re not going to be cheap.
That said: Expect them to be expensive. Additionally, NVIDIA appeared to note that the BFGD had an AU Optronics panel, a collaboration with in line with their previous work on smaller 4K and ultra-wide G-Sync HDR displays. Expect to pay somewhere in the several thousands. What we could see is greater balance between the play of PC and console games in the home because, they can be enjoyed equally on the same display in the same part of the home.
