Nvidia huge 65-inch Big Format Gaming Displays will release this year

Earlier this year, Nvidia revealed what they called Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs), offering an enormous screen size of 65-inches while also delivering a resolution of 4K, HDR support and a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, G-Sync and an Integrated Nvidia Shield Android TV. 

At Nvidia’s Computex Press Conference the company stated that gamers could expect Nvidia’s BFGD’s to release at the end of the Summer, though the company has since clarified that they will launch before the end of 2018. 

What Nvidia is offering here is a PC gaming monitor in a television-sized form factor, allowing those who enjoy gaming on giant screens to take advantage of PC technologies like 120Hz gaming and G-Sync technology, while also offering full HDR compatibility. 

ASUS has already revealed their first BFGD, the Republic of Gamers Swift PG65, a 65-inch 120Hz monitor with support for the DCI-P3 colour space and a peak brightness of 1,000 NITS with a Direct-Lit Full-Array LED backlight. Acer and HP have also revealed similar gaming displays called the Predator BFGD and the Omen X 65 BFGD.


Nvidia’s BFGD’s will offer users a built-in Nvidia Shield Android TV, providing support for HDR, Nvidia GameStream technology and video streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, Hulu and content from the Google Play Store. Like other Shield Android TV devices, controllers can be used to play games on the set and this BFGD can also be used as a Google Assistant.

With support for Nvidia G-Sync, content playback is not an issue, with the ROG Swift PG65 being able to play all content at its native framerate, be it 23.976, 24, 25 or 30FPS/Hz formats. Interpolation or other framerate fudging technologies will not be used with this display.

Nvidia has not released any pricing information for their Big Format Gaming Displays.
