LG has announced that the 2019 lineup of OLED TVs will get Nvidia G-Sync support. This includes the E9 and C9 series of OLED televisions by the company, including 55 and 65-inch models in the E9 lineup, and 55, 65 and 77-inch models in the C9 series. These TVs will now work with Nvidia’s proprietary G-Sync technology, meaning that one can hook them up to a system that allows Nvidia GPUs to achieve the same refresh rate as they are playing. The new feature will be made available for compatible TVs via firmware updates in a few weeks.
With Nvidia G-Sync, there will be no screen tearing when a game is playing, but this feature will only work with Nvidia’s RTX or GTX 16 Series GPUs. The aforementioned LG TVs already come with support for variable refresh rates and similarly the company’s 2019 lineup, which supports up to 120Hz at 1440p and 60Hz refresh rates for 4K content. Since GPUs on PCs do not yet support the HDMI 2.1 interface, the new update is notable. HDMI 2.1 comes with auto low latency mode (ALM), variable refresh rate, EARC and many more features.
