Feature: The BFG of gaming monitors

Nvidia BFGD: Everything we know about their Big Format Gaming Displays, including price, specs and release date

Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays, to you and me) are no longer going to be called BFGDs. Instead, as of January 2019, these massive 65in gaming displays are now part of Nvidia's wider G-Sync Ultimate family, which also includes their significantly smaller (but just as pricey) G-Sync HDR monitors such as the 27in Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Why the…

HP’s BFGD is now called the Omen X Emperium and it’s coming in February

One of the big things I was expecting to hear more about at this year’s CES was Nvidia's BFGDs – or Big Format Gaming Displays, to use their proper name. Or maybe that’s not the right name to use any more, as we did hear a little bit about Nvidia’s BFGDs at CES this week, in that they’ve now been pulled under the banner of…

CES 2019: Nvidia welcome select FreeSync monitors to the fold in new G-Sync overhaul

The arrival of the RTX 2060 wasn't the only trick Nvidia had up their sleeve at this year's CES conference, as they also announced a couple of interesting changes to their adaptive refresh rate G-Sync tech for gaming monitors. Chief among them was a new driver update for a select group of non-G-Sync screens that will effectively render them just as good as your official…

Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ review: 4K HDR has arrived, but good grief, HOW MUCH?

When I saw the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ for the first time back in May earlier this year, I thought the future of monitors had finally arrived. After more than a year of waiting, false starts and simply not being able to have as much fun as our console box friends with their fancy pants 4K HDR TVs, both the PG27UQ and the Acer Predator…

Acer Predator X27 review: The Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor that only lets you see half the fun

On paper, the Acer Predator X27 should be the bestest [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] to end all gaming monitors. It's got the same lovely 4K 144Hz IPS Nvidia G-Sync HDR panel with 384 dynamic backlight zones and 1000cd/m2 peak brightness as the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ, but in the UK it costs £200 less than its Asus rival. That might not be of much…

HP’s Omen X 65 Nvidia BFGD now has an added soundbar, but no one knows if it’s permanent

It's been quite some time since we heard anything concrete about what's going on with Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays for the acronym-averse). After their initial unveiling back in January 2018 at Las Vegas tech shindig CES, there's been a big old pile of nothing regarding these giant 65in G-Sync HDR monitors, and we still don't know when they're actually coming out, how…

Feature: Our HDR guide has it all

What is HDR and how can I get it on PC?

If you've thought about buying a new TV in the last couple of years, you'll no doubt have been bombarded with the glorious three-letter acronym that is HDR. Standing for 'High Dynamic Range', HDR is a type of display technology that's all about making the things you see onscreen more realistic and closer to how they'd look in everyday life. That means improved contrast, a…
