2019 LG OLED TVs are now all set to become compatible with NVIDIA's G-Sync technology. LG has announced that it is collaborating with NVIDIA to release a firmware update that will add support for the aforementioned tech in coming weeks. At the moment, the update will specifically be arriving for LG E9 and C9 OLED TVs that were launched earlier this year.
The NVIDIA G-Sync support will ensure that LG OLED TV users can get even more smooth and immersive gaming experience. It will be beneficial for those who love to game on PC and also uses NVIDIA GPUs. The major addition will be the ability to deliver smooth and variable refresh rates up to 120Hz which LG TVs were previously able to offer only via HDMI 2.1 and on the Xbox One X gaming console.
Matt Wuebbling, Head of GeForce Marketing, NVIDIA said,
“We are excited to bring G-SYNC Compatible support to LG’s 2019 OLED TVs and HDMI Variable Refresh Rate support to our GeForce RTX 20-Series GPUs. Gamers will be blown away by the responsiveness and the lifelike visuals on these TVs when playing the latest PC games featuring real-time ray-tracing powered by GeForce.”
This new functionality will be an addition to the existing gaming features 2019 LG OLED TVs offer. LG claims an input lag of only 6ms for a 1440p content at 120Hz refresh rate and 13ms for 4K content at 60Hz refresh rate. There is support for different HDR standards including Dolby Vision and HDR10. It is further complemented by various audio standards like Dolby Atmos and Dolby TrueHD lossless sound technology.
