CES 2018: The Nvidia BFGD, Because Size Does Matter

Shacknews has been moving around the 2018 Consumer Electronic Show sampling all the wares on offer, and one of the most impressive pieces of tech we got to check out was the Nvidia BFGD 65-inch monitor. The BFGD stands for “Big Format Gaming Display”, but we’ve all played DOOM, we know what it actually stands for.

The Nvidia Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) is a monstrously large monitor for PC gaming enthusiasts everywhere. The monitor has some impressive specifications, including 4K resolution and HDR 10 support, 120Hz refresh rate, ultra-low latency, voice assist that can talk with your other home devices, and some impressive LED tech.

Above you can see Pete from the Hewlett Packard Omen Display Group talk about the Nvidia BFGD’s 1,000 nits of brightness, local dimming, and matrix LEDs that won’t affect one another – no bleeding!

There’s currently no price point for the Nvidia BFGD monitor, but we do have a release window of Fall 2018.

This new hardware comes right off the back of Nvidia’s press conference where they showed off a whole lot of improvements to computing. Drive Xavier, the world’s first autonomous machine processor, was one such announcement that was coupled with a video of an 8-mile journey of a vehicle being driven autonomously. It’s looking like 2018 is going to be a pretty big year for Nvidia – big screens, big graphics cards, and big advancements in AI. Now we just need to wait for the BFGD to show up on the Nvidia shop.
