  • NVIDIA announces Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs) with Android built in

The Shield functionality which was previously only available as a separate box optimizes the display for broader application.

One of the great feature, G-Sync is also included in this monitor. The entire experience can be controlled by voice, thanks to support for Google Assistant, which also allows smart home control. But that was before big format gaming displays - or BFGDs. Acer will provide a remote and game controller to take full advantage of all the games and features that Nvidia Shield provides.


The giant screens will have 4K 120Hz HDR displays using Nvidia's G-SYNC technology, as well as Nvidia Shield. Unfortunately, prices of Big Format Gaming Displays were not mentioned by Nvidia, but we do expect them to be priced similarly (maybe even higher) to consumer-grade 65-inch TVs. Large OLED and LED TVs nowadays have a latency of at least 20 ms, but Nvidia hinted that the new large monitors would have latencies closer to regular gaming monitors. Shield lets you stream Amazon, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube and many other popular channels. We'll bring you more details when they come out. Asus has already unveiled its own ROG SWIFT PG65 BFGD "monitor", HP has the Omen X 65 BFGD and Acer announced the 65-inch Predator BFGD, all of which are lined up for launch later this year. The super impressive screens are wowing audiences at CES 2018 but like most big announcements, more information about the specs and pricing are yet to be announced. This includes G-Sync, which, like AMD's FreeSync, aims to eliminate screen tearing.
