NVIDIA's new 65-inch 4K gaming displays also run Android TV

NVIDIA's new 65-inch 4K gaming displays also run Android TV

Start with a 65-inch 4K panel, but then add in a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR support.

Not one to conform, Nvidia has launched a new initiative to make the best PC gaming screens which it calls Big Format Gaming Displays (or BFGD for short). There's a bundled Nvidia Shield remote and controller as well as support for Google Assistant.

Whatever, it looks like these panels have been ripped straight from the high-end TV production lines and, with more and more 4K HDR screens hitting the market, these big displays are at least more likely to hit the shelves than the standard monitor size 4K HDR panels we've been waiting on since CES past year.

All these features, and more, are why the SHIELD is rated the most advanced 4K streamer by How To Geek, IGN, TechRadar, and countless others.

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.

CAF Awards: One of many dreams came true - Mohamed Salah
Salah had bagged a number of awards this season such as the BCC African Footballer of the year and Arab player of the year. I want to dedicate this award to the kids in Egypt and Africa.

As you can tell by now, the custom-built, PC-focused BFGDs are great even when you're not playing PC games. "BFGDs change that. With NVIDIA's latest technology built into these new displays, PC gamers can now experience their favorite titles in all the low-latency glory they deserve".

The BFGD is essentially also a smart television thanks to the integration of a Shield TV.

The Nvidia BFGD is both, and it could be a big freaking deal for gamers who want the ultimate plus-size display.

If it was April Fool's Day I might be questioning this announcement, but Asus, Acer, and HP are bringing these BFGDs - that DOOM reference is definitely not accidental - to market in the summer.
