Acer Unveils 65-inch Predator Big Format Gaming Display with NVIDIA G-SYNC

CES 2018 Acer Asus and HP Unveil 4K 120 Hz HDR Displays With Built In Nvidia Shield

Not to be confused with a PC monitor, the TV bridges the gap between low latency monitors and large, centerpiece living room TV's as a 65-inch dedicated gaming screen for all of your computer and console needs.

The integration of the Android TV-based SHIELD into BFGDs allows gamers to easily switch between gaming and other forms of entertainment. Oh, and there's Google Assistant support, too! Currently, most gamers who are looking to play with supersize screens use TVs but these miss vital technology support like G-SYNC, which smoothes out game performance. The display is also ready for HDR content, as it has a full direct-array backlight that's capable of delivering 1,000 cd/m² peak brightness, with local dimming functionality. Interestingly, the globally renowned GPUs designer for gaming and cryptocurrency, NVIDIA has expanded its reach in the gaming display space by introducing its first 65-inch 4K HDR displays aimed at PC gamers. "The 65" 4K 120Hz G-SYNC HDR displays will have around a quarter of the input latency of a traditional 4K TV.

While people are getting more and more interested in playing games on the big screen using a TV might not be the ideal solution. If all that wasn't enough, this display is also capable of running Nvidia's streaming service, GeForce NOW and GameStream. A price point for the monitors, which will be created by Acer, ASUS, and HP, hasn't been released just yet. Shield lets you stream Amazon, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube and many other popular channels.

No pricing details of the upcoming display have been revealed by the company.
