HP Omen X 65 joins Nvidia's big effing display game at CES

We won't see HP's 65-inch Big Format Gaming Display until after Nvidia's, though.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

In the real world there are a lot more wires.


Hours after Nvidia made waves by dropping its Big Format Gaming Display into the tranquil waters preceding CES 2018's big day of announcements, HP followed with its own 65-inch bombshell, the Omen X 65 BFGD. Unsurprisingly, it sounds almost identical to Nvidia's, with the same 4K resolution, HDR10 support, a 120Hz refresh rate, G-Sync support and integrated Nvidia Shield technology.

The big difference: Nvidia plans to ship in the summer while we won't see the HP until the fall. (Or, like many ambitious displays announced every year at CES, we may never see it at all.) We won't get a price until closer to then, either.

It'll be interesting to see how much these cost, since all the extra built-in Shield technology plus making it a low-latency panel should add some price premium it wouldn't have if it were just a TV.
