CES, a place where big TV companies battle it out to impress the press and the public. In past years it was usually your big TV brands such as Samsung, LG, Panasonic, etc… This year its NVIDIA’s turn with them introducing the all-new Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGD)
On NVIDIA’s blog post they explain that CES is plagued with these top of the range big TV’s with beautiful 4k, but never appeal to gamers as they do not offer high refresh rates, low latency, PC-tuned HDR, and G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology and most do not even have adaptive sync technology.
The first line of BFGD will come from Acer, Asus and HP all including the best PC technology we have missed out on. The first of these BFGD TVs will all have 65-inch displays that will run at 4k at 120Hz, include G-Sync technology, boast HDR with 1000 nit peak brightness, and have an integrated Nvidia SHIELD the world’s most advanced streamer to experience movies and TV shows in fantastic 4K HDR, listen to your favorite songs, and control your entertainment and smart home with just your voice. The perfect fit for streamers with a Google-connected lifestyle.
Not just built for gaming, the BFGD’s allow movies and TV shows to be viewed at their original frame rate, as intended by the director. A large amount of TV’s and other displays limit movies to 24 fps and 60hz normally using processes, which result in noticeable judder and blurriness in panning scenes and moments of fast action. But now with NVIDIA G-Sync this no longer an issue.
“By using G-SYNC’s variable refresh rate technology, and a true 120Hz panel, BFGDs can be set to a genuine 24 Hz, perfectly matching the framerate of the source material, giving you a cinema-quality experience when watching at home. And of course, this also holds true for 48 FPS High Frame Rate content, 23.976 FPS U.S. broadcast television shows, and the framerate of any other media you access.”
