ASUS PG65 Big Format Gaming Display - G-Sync HDR in a TV form factor

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. 

ROG is showcasing their PG65 BFGD at Computex 2018, wowing onlookers with its high refresh rate, tearing free HDR gaming experience, delivering a gaming experience that is not available elsewhere. Nvidia says that these displays will release sometime in 2018. 

What ASUS 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 10 compatibility using HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4. 

ASUS' Republic of Gamers Swift PG65 will ship with a 65-inch screen, a 120Hz refresh rate, support for the full DCI-P3 colour space and deliver users peak brightness levels of 1,000 NITS with a Direct-Lit Full-Array LED backlight. You can't ask for much more from a display of this size.

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.

Aye, gotta see what the screen to bezel ratio and camera's are like. I would like to see a 256GB storage option though. I can't imagine what the price jump between 128GB and 512GB is going to be.

Jfc the thickness of the Ryujin block though! But I can't say I'm surprised with it housing a fan for the VRMsQuote

Interesting stuff. To answer Tom's questions:

Phone... I really like the looks. I don't care much about addons, and connectivity. It is a phone. What is the point of caring a suitcase of addons? At home you have PC. Why do you need docking station? You won't carry it around. Joypad thingy, and that dual screen is good if you are traveling.

For AiO i really like the "classical" shape. Fan to cool VRM... pointless. And the looks... You know what ASUS... too much exists. Don't overdo it.

PSU is amazing. I would really like that this type of fancy PSUs at least make PSU covers removable.

Case i don't like at all. I don't like writing all over it. And here also ASUS you are overdoing it. It is a gaming rig. It will get really hot. Don't put a slab of glass in the front. Design vents that work.

Have a nice time Tom. Quote

Gotta admit, I initially didn't like the looks of the Ryuo, but now I think it's glorious! You also have to appreciate the resolution of the mini display. I thought it'd be more of a pixel mush

Also kinda liking the phone. My contract is running out early next year, so I might consider that if the pricing is somewhere near the affordable mark. Let's just hope they get their energy management right or I can already see problems arising concerning broken batteries, that broke because the user attached and detached the gamepad/powerbank too often...

I don't really care much about the PSUs as they're a big overkill for me. Hopefully ASUS is bringin some 500W soon with all that fancy stuff.Quote
