NVIDIA took to CES 2019 this year with a few important announcements, including the introduction of G-SYNC compatible monitors.
One release of note, however, is February's debut of the 65-inch super-sized NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Displays, which feature 4K, 144Hz with 1,000 nit HDR, 384 zone matrix backlight, and cinematic DCI-P3 color. You'll be able to game with an enormous screen with one of these bad boys, and they're available to pre-order via HP right now. Other sellers will start taking pre-orders soon, when the BFGDs launch later this quarter, according to NVIDIA.
NVIDIA will also be working with other partners to make new G-SYNC monitors and release them at a relatively quick pace. The company is already planning to debut its curved 35-inch, 3440x1440, 200 Hz G-SYNC Ultimate display soon, with 1,000 nits, 512 zone matrix backlight, and high color and contrast, for one.
The G-SYNC ecosystem includes "hundreds of monitor models" that are capable of variable refresh rates using the VESA DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync protocol. NVIDIA will be testing monitors to help gamers looking to adopt variable refresh rates utilizing said protocol, and those that pass rigorous tests will be labeled G-SYNC compatible and thus enabled by default with the GeFore driver. The tests will identify monitors capable of delivering a baseline VRR experience via the GeForce RET 20-series and GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards and activate VRR features automatically.
If you're in the market for a massive monitor, you're definitely going to want to make sure you shop around when one of these enormous displays goes on sale. It could certainly transform the way you game, and more.
