Asus’ ROG Big Format Gaming Display is coming later this year

Asus has announced when gamers will soon be able to get their hands-on their Nvidia Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD), the ROG Swift PG65UQ.

Asus’ ROG Swift PG65UQ has a massive 65-inch 4K display that is HDR enabled, refresh rate of up to 144Hz, Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate support, 95% DCI-P3 professional colour gamut and DisplayHDR100 and Ultra HD Premium certification.

“The ASUS ROG Swift PG65UQ BFGD with NVIDIA G-SYNC is a great option for PC gaming on a big screen,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce Marketing at NVIDIA. “Gamers will appreciate the impressive video quality, brightness and high resolution that BFGD provides.”

The display uses full-array local dimming and LED backlighting across 384 zones with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.

Asus says the ROG Swift PG65UQ is great for PC gamers but it also for Xbox One, thanks to the display’s variable refresh rate (VRR) of 48-60Hz the HDMI port.

The BFGD has 4 HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, SPDIF output and 2 USB 3.0 ports. There are also 2 15W speakers on the display for better sound.

The Asus ROG Swift PG65UQ is set to be released in Canada in Q4 of this year but the company has yet to announce pricing for it.

The only other Nvidia BFGD, which is HP’s OMEN X Emperium 65 and that goes for $6,999 CAD ($4,999 CAD), so expect to pay a pretty penny for Asus’ display.
