LG today declared that Nvidia licensed several of its OLED TVs as G-Sync Compatible. Meaning anybody looking for a massive gaming display screen–the lineup’s sizes measure between 55 and 77 inches diagonally–now has a new reason to contemplate one of LG’s flagship TV units.
LG said the TVs are G-Sync Compatible; they do not natively support G-Sync; however, they have been tested and authorized to run G-Sync properly. LG stated the TVs provide up to 120 Hz refresh rates; however, input lag will range based on resolution and refresh rate, so users must decide what they want to prioritize. The corporate said there’s 6ms of input lag with 1440p content at 120 Hz and 13ms of input lag with 4K content material at 60 Hz. The system also supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HDMI 2.1 and quite a few “cinematic audio codecs” for more immersive sound.
Those options mean LG’s TVs might’ve benefited from G-Sync Ultimate, which was made mainly to support HDR content material and high-resolution monitors; however, the firm would’ve had to manufacture the gadgets with G-Sync in thoughts and with Nvidia’s proprietary processor for that to happen. Making the TVs G-Sync Suitable is a fair compromise that makes the merchandise better-suited to PC gaming for much less price.
LG stated that all size options of this year’s E9 available in 55 and 65-inch variants and C9 available in 55, 65 and 77-inch variations model OLED TVs would receive G-Sync Suitable support through a firmware update in “the weeks to follow.”
The Dell AW5520QF is popping out this month and will also reinvigorate the monitor-TV rivalry by being the primary OLED gaming monitor, whereas offering a 55-inch screen suitable for the living room.
