Huge displays for entertainment and productivity are getting increasingly popular these days as prices are falling. Last year NVIDIA proposed a reference design for Big Format Gaming Displays: 65-inch monsters featuring a 120/144 Hz refresh rate along with the company’s G-Sync HDR technology. The initiative was supported by three companies: Acer, ASUS, and HP. But while all of them formally announced their BFGD products at CES 2018, only HP has started to sell one - the HP OMEN X Emperium.

Officially introduced at CES 2019, the HP OMEN X Emperium 65 display is based on a 64.5-inch 8-bit AMVA panel featuring a 3840×2160 resolution, 750-1000 nits brightness (typical/HDR), a 3200:1-4000:1 contrast ratio (minimum/typical), 178° viewing angles, a 120 - 144 Hz refresh rate (normal/overclocked), and a 4 ms GtG response time with overdrive enabled. Just like other G-Sync HDR monitors released to date, this one is equipped with a 384-zone full direct-array backlight to offer a finer-grained HDR experience, and enhanced with quantum dots to guarantee precise reproduction of 95% of the DCI-P3 color space. The ultra-large display can connect up to four devices using one DisplayPort 1.4 as well as three HDMI 2.0b ports.

To make the OMEN X Emperium 65 display more attractive both to gamers as well as those looking for other kinds of entertainment, HP outfitted its BFGD with a soundbar rated for 120 W of output power (with three stereo amps and Low Frequency Array technology) as well as a built-in SHIELD TV console that can be used as a media player to stream content from Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu and other services.

    HDR with 8-bit color is not proper HDR though. For $5,000 this display should have been at least 10-bit color. Reply

    Nvidia's G-Sync team: "let's just go from 32" 4K to 65" 4K with nothing in-between."

    Like seriously?
