Nvidia impressed us at this CES with its all-new large-format PC display standard called “Big Format Gaming Display” (BFGD). This is basically a better version of the normal 4K-HDR TV that you might currently be using. Fortunately, this add-on concept stands only for screens bigger than 40-inches so no ‘tech wastage’ on smaller screens.
The reason that justifies buying the BFGD screen is that it has been tweaked for gaming desktops. Obviously, it supports the G-SYNC-HDR hardware to give you that high-standard display. Don’t worry if your TV doesn’t have the in-built Android-based “Smart TV” OS because it has the ‘NVIDIA Shield’ to serve the purpose. Also, you won’t necessarily be needing the software-based HiDPI scaling so if you want to keep it as casual as a better quality living-room gaming experience, it would be a perfect choice.
