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

BFGD (Big Formate Gaming Display) is becoming standard for gaming displays now. Typically you want the largest, most immersive screen to game on, but before now, when you increase the size, you go down in tech specs, having to make compromises on the feature list.

All displays will also have a fully-integrated Nvidia's Shield, meaning they'll be capable of TV-style video streaming as well as game streaming and Google Assistant support out of the box. As you know, CES 2018 is here, and Nvidia as a giant will showcase a part of their investments and discoveries, as well as they did even before CES begins.

Nvidia opened up its CES 2018 announcements with Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) standard or technology, which should change the way gaming is done on big living room TVs. It also offers two of Nvidia's other proprietary technologies. The displays which are primarily aimed at gamers have 120Hz refresh rates, a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, full-array backlighting, and full DCI-P3 color gamut support. The Nvidia BFGD looks to combine the benefits of those monitors on a TV-sized screen.

In addition, the Nvidia BFGD will have the game streaming capabilities of the Shield included as well.

The first company to provide me with a press release is Acer, with their monitor using the Predator branding found on many of their gaming orientated systems.

The screen will feature G-Sync so that there is no tearing and the experience is as immersive as it can get.

Although we don't have word on the specific latency, compared to competitive UHD TVs on the market expect these to be more suited for gaming.
