Nvidia is launching a line of massive 65-inch gaming displays

Share

This is something big all gamers must be waiting for.

The BFGDs (any DOOM fans want to guess where NVIDIA is going with that?) will combine "low refresh rates, low latency, PC-tuned HDR, and G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology", in one 65-inch package - and the first of these will be launched by Acer, ASUS and HP this year.

At a desk, it's unlikely you'd be able to view the entirety of this monitor without a lot of head movement.

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.

Gaming disorder could soon be a mental health condition, according to WHO
Enjoying gaming regularly is not necessarily an addiction, but the line is being defined by World Health Organization next year. Public opinions and knee-jerk reactions aside, virtually any sort of hobby or fun can become addicting to the right personality.

BFGD (Big Formate Gaming Display) is becoming standard for gaming displays now. G-SYNC HDR technology also supports video playback at native framerates, including popular 23.976, 24 and 25 FPS formats. This means that gamers will now have access to most of the Android games.

Additionally, Nvidia's streaming tech, Shield, is built right into the display without the need for a separate unit. This allows you to use your voice to ask Shield to play music, order shopping, or ask Google. NVIDIA did not also reveal how much they will cost.

Until Nvidia's partners in this BFGD enterprise make their own announcements, we can't give you exact details on pricing and availability, but you can expect these to be premium devices commanding a premium price.

If all that wasn't tempting enough, the displays are effectively Nvidia Shield devices as well, embedding the Shield components behind the screen so you get all of that Android TV goodness too - apps from Spotify to Netflix, plus a host of Android games as well. As there's nothing really novel inside this gaming monitor I doubt we'll be waiting long before it appears for sale. This includes G-Sync, which, like AMD's FreeSync, aims to eliminate screen tearing.
