"NVIDIA BFGD 65" Monitor 4K, 120Hz, HDR and G-Sync | CES2018

To be more specific, Nvidia's Big Format Gaming Displays are 65-inch monitors that are not exclusively made by Nvidia itself. Again, it's "Big Format Gaming Display", even it's really "Big Effing Gaming Display".

According to a blog post, Nvidia says it has been working closely with panel maker AU Optronics, in order to create the ideal 4K resolution panels with HDR and G-Sync. Other specifications include a full array direct backlight as well as DCI-P3 cinema quality color gamuts.

Another reason to consider the Predator as a living room rather than desk monitor is the fact Acer built-in Nvidia Shield hardware.

The idea here is to take large screen displays up to 65-inches with a 4K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR support - specs you'd find on some of the top-tier TVs available right now - and make them more suitable for gaming.

At the heart of BFGDs is the latest G-SYNC HDR technology that synchronizes the display's 120Hz refresh rate to that of the game at every moment in time. The bundled SHIELD remote and game controller allow for easy navigation and access to all of the world's biggest streaming apps, including Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube and Hulu. The answer is Nvidia BFGD. If you're into streamin, there's also Plex and Kodi support and for those looking for some more casual gaming, its also possible to run some Android games and exclusive conversions of classic titles, such as Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3. We'll bring you more details when they come out. Especially if they're G-Sync compatible. Acer hasn't indicated the release date for the Predator BFGD nor its pricing, but the supersized display is likely to carry a premium price tag.
