As much as you love PC gaming, there will be times where you much rather be seated on your living room couch and game on a big screen. Of course, there were tradeoffs like lower refresh rates (144Hz vs 60Hz), which can be really jarring and annoying, but that problem could soon be a relic of the past if Nvidia has anything to say about it.
Introducing the BFGD, NVIDIA’s Big Format Gaming Display.
Created with their hardware partners Acer, Asus, and HP, the BFGD will pack a 65-inch 4K panel, that is also capable of supporting HDR and a 120Hz refresh rate. Not only that, you will be getting G-Sync support, so say goodbye to stuttering even when frame rates are wonky.
All these will also work with the NVIDIA SHIELD in addition to your standard PC, if you have a GeForce GPU, that will also be ideal.
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.

The integration of the Android TV-based SHIELD into BFGDs allows gamers to switch easily between gaming and other forms of entertainment. The bundled SHIELD remote and game controller gives you easy navigation and access to all of the world’s biggest streaming apps, including Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTubeTM, and Hulu.
The BFGD’s 4K HDR display will feature a full-array direct backlight with 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 colour gamut for the ultimate experience of visual quality. G-SYNC HDR technology also supports video playback at native frame rates, including popular 23.976, 24 and 25 FPS formats, perfect for movie buffs!
With G-SYNC Variable Refresh Rate technology delivering a highly responsive, smooth, tear-free, immersive gaming experience unmatched by any display of this size, this could very well be the go-to option for living room setups in the near future.
As of right now, there is no information on the pricing or concrete availability (summer is expected) of the BFGD, but you can be sure they will cost a pretty penny, much more than your standard displays.
