NVIDIA's BFGD solutions (Big Format Gaming Display) are meant to become the ultimate gaming graphics display solution for gamers. their 4K resolution and 120 Hz refresh rates with G-Sync support are meant to become the baseline for smoothness in gaming scenarios, and the 1000 NITS peak brightness is meant to make HDR images that are relevant - differing from other, less "refined", shall we say, implementations. However, the hardware specs for these systems are high, parts are expensive and difficult to procure, and the process of integrating so much technology (including Quantum Dot tech and NVIDIA Shield) seems to be giving integrators a hard time.
As such, and as part of Gamescom coverage, press was made aware by NVIDIA partners of a recent delay decision for these BFGD panels' market introduction - they've been moved to Q1 2019. And as the launch timeframe has jumped, so have cost estimates for the end-user: these now sit between the €4,000 and €5,000 ballpark, making these displays, with as much tech as they have, a difficult buy to stomach. The fact that OLED display solutions can be had, in the same diagonals, by much, much less, should give anyone pause in their purchase decision for these BFGD displays. Even if the value one puts down on G-Sync does lead users to a purchase decision, remember that integration of the HDMI 2.1 standard brings with it VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support, and that Xbox consoles already support the open, free-to-implement FreeSync standard.
