LG Electronics (LG) has joined forces with Nvidia in order to add support for Nvidia G-SYNC compatibility to its 2019 OLED TVs (model 65/55E9, model 77/65/55C9). The company said that users can play compatible titles in dynamic HDR10 or Dolby Vision (at up to 120 frames per second for Full HD content) taking advantage of HDMI 2.1 specifications such as auto low latency mode (ALLM), enhanced audio return channel (eARC), and variable refresh rate (VRR).

“It’s no secret LG OLED TVs are coveted by gamers world over and we are committed to optimizing the OLED gaming experience for them,” Sam Kim, senior vice president of the TV product planning division of Home Entertainment company at LG.

LG’s Nvidia G-SYNC compatible support for its 2019 OLED TVs will become available in select markets via a firmware upgrade in the weeks to follow. The company has already been working on a lot of IoT features in the past as well.

The Korea-based smartphone company said that addition of Nvidia G-SYNC compatibility raises the bar once more, guaranteeing even more immersive big-screen PC gaming on the company’s industry-leading 4K OLED models, available in 55 to 77-inch screen sizes.

“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, “said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at Nvidia.

Sam Kim added, “With Nvidia G-SYNC adoption, we are showing that OLED TVs have the support and backing of the world’s top gaming hardware brand to make their products look their best.”

Company’s official statement read, “Along with infinite contrast and highly accurate color reproduction, the TVs offer an ultra-fast response time with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Input lag – which can make the difference between victory and defeat – is barely perceptible at a 6 milliseconds range for 1440p content at 120 Hz and 13 milliseconds range for 4K content at 60 Hz. The minimal input lag of LG’s OLED TVs, of less than a frame, with no loss in picture quality, makes them the best displays for gaming.”
