HP joins Nvidia's big effing display game with Omen X 65
Jan 09 2018
The supersized Predator gaming display builds on the same top-of-the-line specifications that its smaller cousins boast, and integrates NVIDIA SHIELD streaming capabilities to play movies and TV shows in stunning 4K HDR. The new BFGDs bring a home cinema type quality to a home gaming setup. BFGDs also supports company's remote and gaming controller.
According to a blog post, Nvidia says it has been working closely with panel maker AU Optronics, in order to create the flawless 4K resolution panels with HDR and G-Sync. The displays are packed with embedded technology including NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, which eliminates screen tearing and built-in Shield functionality. Unfortunately, prices of Big Format Gaming Displays were not mentioned by Nvidia, but we do expect them to be priced similarly (maybe even higher) to consumer-grade 65-inch TVs. SHIELD offers the possibility to stream through popular platforms like Netflix, Amazon video etc., while accepting 23.9, 24 and 48 fps playback rates. The answer is Nvidia BFGD. Instead, manufacturers like Acer, Asus, and HP will be making the monitors and they will be aided by Nvidia in terms of technology implementation. 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. The pricing and more details of the device will be revealed later. The first OEMs to announce G-Sync BFGDs are Asus with the ROG Swift PG65 and Acer with the Predator BFGD. We are not sure regarding the form factor yet but it is safe to say there will be more versions coming out.
