The displays are 65 inches, and PC makers like Acer, Asus, and HP will be manufacturing them as 4K HDR displays.

At its annual CES keynote tonight, Nvidia unveiled 65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR screens aimed at gamers called "big format gaming displays". Or why big TVs can't be designed specifically for gaming?

PC gamers typically have two options when it comes to displays: small gaming monitors loaded with special features and speedy response times, or big, handsome TVs marred by display lag.

As expected Nvidia, along with their display partners, are going big on 4K G-Sync HDR gaming at this year's CES. Some techniques and processes are better than others, but before now you could never approach the clarity of a high-quality cinema setup at home.

Finally, the company notes that when it's time to grab some popcorn and watch a movie on BFGDs with the built-in Shield, that device will use G-Sync to ensure that the content being played rolls by at its intended frame rate with no interpolation, be that at 24 Hz, 48 Hz, 23.976 Hz for broadcast media, or practically any other source frame rate. For example, many of us have a Nintendo Switch, or another console, and when playing on these the BFGD offers ultra-low levels of latency for snappier, more responsive controls, and has minimal display lag, reduced screen motion blur, and fantastic HDR support to make the colors pop in the likes of Forza Motorsport 7 and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC™, it's a whole new way for enthusiast gamers to take on today's top titles. Presumably this is rolling with the same specs as a standalone NVIDIA Shield Android TV box, which is still the industry leader.

In the announcement Nvidia piunted to partnerships with Acer, Asus and HP.
