BFGD — that’s the new acronym that gamers need to know. Introduced by Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA this week, it stands for Big Format Gaming Display.
Created in conjunction with NVIDIA hardware partners Acer, ASUS and HP, BFGDs integrate a high-end 65-inch, 4K 120Hz HDR display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology together with NVIDIA SHIELD.
At the heart of BFGDs is the latest G-SYNC HDR technology that synchronises the display’s 120Hz refresh rate to that of the game at every moment in time. This G-SYNC Variable Refresh Rate technology delivers a highly responsive, smooth, tear-free, immersive gaming experience unmatched by any display of this size.
Additionally, the 4K HDR display features a full-array direct backlight, 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 colour gamut for the ultimate in visual quality.
The integration of the Android TV-based SHIELD into BFGDs allows gamers to easily switch between gaming and other forms of entertainment. The bundled SHIELD remote and game controller allow for easy navigation and access to streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, and Hulu.
With support for the Google Assistant, the entire experience can be voice controlled. G-SYNC HDR technology also supports video playback at native framerates, including popular 23.976, 24 and 25 FPS formats. This matches the screen’s refresh rate to the video source’s actual frame rate, eliminating interpolation and presenting the video content as it was intended to be viewed by the director.
