This adds ability of numerous apps, Google Assistant with its smart home control and many more. With the rise of 4K UHD displays in the past year, and a wide range of displays now on the market - some of which not exactly ideal for gaming - this is great news.
Which Nvidia are calling Big Format Gaming Displays or BFGDs. Well, NVIDIA, and its partners (HP, ASUS, and Acer), certainly seems to think so, because it has just announced the 65-inch Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) with HDR, G-SYNC, with an NVIDIA SHIELD built-in. These pack in nearly everything you could want: 4K, HDR, and 120 Hz support with 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 color gamut.
The thought of having a 65-inch display optimised for low latency and ultra high quality gaming may no doubt tempt plenty of PC gamers.
G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology matches the screen's refresh rate to the video source's actual frame rate so video content is presented as directors originally intended it to be seen.
With SHIELD, Nvidia has made streaming easy and fast, they keep on making it better with every update. 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.
BFGDs for 2018 will be released by ACER, ASUS, and HP. Shield lets you stream Amazon, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube and many other popular channels. The display will support a 120Hz refresh rate at 4K resolution, and are bound to be very expensive. Especially if they're G-Sync compatible.More news: Geely buys into Swedish truck maker AB Volvo to reinforce globalisation drive
