Nvidia unveils 65-inch 4K gaming monitors


 At the CES show in Las Vegas, nVidia has unveiled a new range of 65-inch, 4K-resolution monitors which it calls Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs).

The monitors boast 120Hz refresh rates, nVidia’s G-Sync variable refresh technology and integrated, Android TV-based Shield TV functionality, which essentially turns them into voice-controlled Smart TVs (although, being monitors, they don’t contain TV tuners). The company said that latencies for the BFGD TVs would be closer to those of 4K monitors than TVs, although it didn’t go into specifics.

It looks as though several monitor manufacturers will build and sell the BFGD models, including Acer and HP. 

Currently, no details of pricing or availability for the BFGD monitors have emerged, although they are expected to arrive in the shops in summer 2018. The monitors should work particularly well with PC setups built around high-end nVidia graphics cards. We’ll bring you more details when they come out.
