It's not just TVs that are getting bigger, monitors are too, and Acer turned up to CES with a huge new monitor aimed squarely at gamers. Nvidia's G-Sync tech and impressive a native 120Hz refresh rate aim to keep the image smooth and responsive without tearing or artifacting.
The new big 4K HDR 65-inch displays are expected to satisfy all the gaming needs. NVIDIA is going to unveil its big gaming display by partnering with Acer, Asus, and HP at CES 2018. These pack in nearly everything you could want: 4K, HDR, and 120 Hz support with 1,000-nit peak luminance and DCI-P3 color gamut. That means you can stream movies and TV without need of a separate streaming box and use the included Shield controller for gaming. However, move a little further away and introduce a sofa and you potentially have the ultimate in gaming display for the living room.
"Throw in some Andoid-based Nvidia SHIELD tech, a large 65" display and models now expected from the likes of Acer, ASUS and HP, and colour us - interested. But the built-in Nvidia Shield Android streaming media device does replicate much of that TV functionality. We are not sure regarding the form factor yet but it is safe to say there will be more versions coming out. G-SYNC HDR technology also supports video playback at native framerates, including popular 23.976, 24 and 25 FPS formats.
