Nvidia to launch new giant screen for gaming

Nvidia Corp., a US designer of graphics processing units (GPUs), said it will launch a new type of giant screen in cooperation with its hardware partners.

The technology company is teaming up with Acer, ASUS and HP to introduce big format gaming displays (BFGDs) to offer a smooth gaming and media streaming experience on a giant screen, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.

The BFGD consists of 4K 120Hz HDR display, measuring 65 inches, coupled with the G-SYNC technology and the SHIELD streaming device of the company.

The displays are expected to be available in the summer, according to a Nvidia press release.

The company has an approximately 70 percent share of the GPU market, according to a report by Fortune in November last year.

It has expanded into a number of businesses, including data centers, virtual-reality image streaming, machine learning, self-driving car, self-flying plane and smart city.

In the quarter to Oct. 29 last year, Nvidia recorded a 31.5 percent rise in revenue to US$2.64 billion. Profit also grew 54.6 percent to US$838 million, Reuters reported.
