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

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

It's not just TVs that are getting bigger, monitors are too, and Acer turned up to CES with a huge new monitor aimed squarely at gamers.

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

In terms of HDR compatibility, the new monitor is equipped with full-array backlight LEDs that can output up to 1,000 nits of luminance and manage basic local dimming algorithms. 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.

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. We'll know more when ASUS, Acer, and HP make their individual announcements.

This is a HDR (High Dynamic Range) monitor which means, gamers are going to have super realistic quality. On top of all that, the BFGD includes Nvidia's own proprietary Shield streaming service right out of the box.

NVIDIA has also introduced Freestyle filters which will start processing according to the game you are playing.

With support for the Google Assistant, the entire experience can be controlled simply by using your voice. NVIDIA did not also reveal how much they will cost. As there's nothing really novel inside this gaming monitor I doubt we'll be waiting long before it appears for sale.

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. If you game on an Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, it's certainly a tempting offer, especially as it boasts support for HDR.
