News is in the air for all the gamers out there. Nvidia has recently launched their new initiative to make the best PC gaming screens which, they had named it Big Format Gaming Displays or BFGD when abbreviated-short. In collaboration with Acer, Asus and HP, the GPU maker would produce 65-inch, 4K 120Hz HDR displays with integrated Nvidia G-Sync technology and Nvidia Shield functionality.
This initiative would effectively confirms BFGD’s position as one of the biggest displays users can hook their PC’s gaming rig to. Alternatively, users could also tap into the Nvidia Shield features to stream PC games with just their TV as well as accessing streaming media with the help of Google Assistant.
In terms of picture quality, the BFGD features a 4K HDR display built coupled with a full direct-array backlight, 1,000-nit peak luminance and Quantum Dot Enhancement Films to produce a DCI-P3 color gamut. Of course, the lowering latency is an important issue and these new displays will reduce it to a single millisecond.
Talking of looks, Acer, HP and Asus would all deliver their own version of BFGD screens with slightly different bases.
Till now, only Asus has released details about its BFGD monitor, the Asus ROG Swift PG65. It also features a 65-inch 4K screen with G-Sync, 120Hz refresh rate and DCI-P3 color gamut, with a direct-lit LED backlight capable of 1000-nit peak luminance and HDR compatibility.
According to Asus, it would feature a 178 degree wide-view panel and would also have the Nvidia Shield technology in-built. For now, the pricing has yet to be announced and availability has been slated vaguely for later part of this year.
Lastly, to this entire innovation, Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA, regarded that, “PC gamers expect high performance and instant response times, but, until now, they’ve been largely limited to traditional desktop displays. BFGDs change that. With NVIDIA’s latest technology built into these new displays, PC gamers can now experience their favorite titles in all the low-latency glory they deserve.”
