Big Format G-Sync Displays Light Up CES 2019

By January 7, 2019August 21st, 2019No Comments

Nvidia’s G-Sync has been around for awhile now, allowing displays and GPUs to communicate for a smoother gaming experience. The integrated hardware does add cost however, and that’s kept the size options somewhat limited.

Looks like that’s changing in 2019.

At CES this year, we’re seeing a variety of Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs) supporting G-Sync, with some of the biggest names in the industry jumping on board like Acer, ASUS, and HP.

These massive, 65-inch monitors will also take advantage of all the modern gaming bells and whistles, including higher resolutions like 4K, refresh frates up to 120Hz, HDR, DCI-P3 color gamut, and plenty more. You’re obviously going to need a beefy GPU to make the most of these features, but if you’re spending $5,000 on one of these displays, chances are you’ll have the gear to take advantage of it.

These displays also have a built in Nvidia Shield. That means Android functionality, access to GeForce Now streaming, and Nvidia’s GameStream service, all accessible directly from the monitor itself.

Think a fully featured high-end gaming monitor…only bigger. These offerings are representative of an important step in the display market, as it’s going to allow premium, cutting-edge PC gaming experiences on a display the size of your television.

Displays are going to be a huge part of CES 2019, so stay tuned for more monitor coverage throughout the week.

PC hardware+games=yes. Console emulation on Android and custom cooling loops get me out of bed in the morning.
