Nvidia’s Big Format Gaming Displays reportedly delayed until Q1 2019 – To feature 4,000-5000 Euro pricing

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.

Before now, these displays were expected to release before the end of 2018, though now, according to a report from Hardware.info, Nvidia’s insane High-end TV/G-Sync hybrid displays have been delayed until Q1 2019. 

If you thought that the £2000 pricing of Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR displays was expensive, be ready for a shock. According to HP representative, the price tag of their BFGD is set to be around €4,000 to €5,000, though pricing remains uncertain. This pricing places Nvidia’s BFGD’s in the same market as some of the market’s most expensive OLED TVs, well beyond what most gamers could afford. 

In many ways, what Nvidia is providing is PC gaming-grade television-scale smart display with integrated smart functionality through its use of an integrated Nvidia Shield, HDR compatibility through a Quantum Dot (QLED) panel with a Direct-Lit Full-Array LED backlight that supports a peak brightness of 1.000 nits and support for local dimming. The combination of a 4K resolution and a 120Hz panel creates an ultra-high resolution experience in conjunction with insane framerates, both of which are further improved with HDR compatibility and G-Sync variable refresh rate support.   
 
Right now, only three display makers have backed Nvidia to create BFGDs, with ASUS, ACER and HP leading the charge with ROG Swift, Predator and Omen X series monitors. 

 

With their BFGDs, Nvidia pre-selects most of the components that display makers can use, giving each brand little wiggle room to implement new features or offer higher display specifications than competitors.
