Nvidia has unveiled its first Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The screen is a whopping 65-inch in size. It also comes with built-in Android TV. For the uninitiated, BFGDs are targeted towards gamers for an intense gameplay experience.

Nvidia BFGD specifications and technologies

Nvidia has partnered with companies like Acer, Asus, and HP to manufacture the displays. The collective work on the same is going on for over two years now. The screens will boast of 120 Hz refresh rate, 4K resolution, HDR support, and low latency rates – ideal for gamers.

The displays are Nvidia Shield devices as well, which means that the Shield components are embedded in the screen, thus providing all the features of an Android TV, including a bunch of streaming apps like Netflix and Spotify, along with the complete range of Android-based games, and Google Assistant. The GameStream technology of the Shield series will wirelessly stream games via a GeForce card from a PC connected to the local network, i.e., a game running on a high-end computer in the living room can be wirelessly streamed onto the BFGD display in your bedroom.

Asus ROG Swift PG65

Asus has displayed their efforts at the event in the form of ROG Swift PG65. It comes with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, along with a wide 178-degree viewing angle, dynamic contrast control, and high-end DCI-P3 color gamut support. The ROG Swift PG65 also supports Nvidia G-Sync technology, which reduces latency and efficiently removes stutters occurring at 4K 120 fps frame rate with the help of a compatible Nvidia graphics card.

Asus ROG Swift PG65 is expected to hit the markets sometime in 2018. Other manufacturers may follow suit. More details about availability and pricing will emerge as and when the OEMs are closer to production. There is less doubt about them being premium displays with hefty price tags though.

Nvidia Titan V, the latest offering from the American technology company, is the world's most powerful GPU ever created for Personal Computers. The product targets researchers and scientists. It was announced at the annual NIPS conference by founder and CEO, Jensen Huang.

There are 21.1 billion transistors used. New Tensor Cores deliver 110 teraflops and are designed for deep learning and scientific computations and simulations.

The Nvidia Titan V promises to turn a PC into an Artificial Intelligence powered supercomputer. The new GPU has nine times the raw horsepower of its predecessor. It is built on their proprietary Volta GPU architecture.

The new GPU is twice as energy efficient as that of the precious generation Pascal design, which is due to a significant redesign of the multiprocessor at the center of the Graphics Processing Unit. There is also a boost in performance within the same power usage as that of its predecessor.

Nvidia Titan V is priced at $2,999.

Nvidia has unveiled their intelligent video analytics platform, the Nvidia Metropolis. It brings them a step closer to the envisioned Artificial Intelligence enabled smart cities of the future. The platform is a combination of various Nvidia products operating on a unified architecture.

The idea is to apply deep learning techniques to the real-time video streams generated by the cameras, and then use that information in the areas of public safety, resource optimization, and traffic management, to name a few.

The current state is such that most of the raw video is just stored on disks, and not processed instantly as it involves a massive workforce expenditure. The quick analysis methods will be able to process all that data on a large scale and with higher accuracy.

Nvidia is hoping there will be around a billion cameras in the public domain (commercial buildings, government property, public transit, and roadways) by the year 2020, thus giving their platform enough raw data to process and improve its behavior.

Nvidia has partnered up with various companies (Avigilon, Dahua, Hanwha Techwin, Hikvision, Milestone, and more) to build products and applications around the Metropolis platform. Few such ideas will be on display at the GPU Technology Conference happening this week.
