G-Sync’s firmware update is going to launch in the coming week for North American compatible LG’s OLED 2019 TVs. The company said that three OLED TVs would have this feature: C9, entry-level of B9, and E9. LG announced that other region’s TVs would receive updates around the current year-end. G-Sync technology is Nvidia’s adjustable revive rate technology which removes screen tears by synchronizing the graphics card and the display. So far, this technology is more common in PC displays than on TV. However, Nvidia recently opened the standard to make the technology compatible with displays that earlier only supported AMD FreeSync technology and some of today’s LG TVs. Until now, this technology was more common in PC displays than in TV.
Since G-Sync technology is of Nvidia’s, you require a PC having a graphics card of Nvidia to work properly, especially Nvidia’s GTX 16 Series or GeForce RTX 20 Series GPUs. When connected to a compatible LG TV having a firmware update, you will be able to experience flexible refresh rates up to 120Hz.In the end, thanks to the built-in features of the latest 2.1 HDMI standard, we are likely to see most TVs with adjustable revive rate technology. Though, the new connected version has not yet been released to the PC graphics card. When enabled, the variable refresh rate can be used as long as both the graphics card and the TV use 2.1 HDMI.
With the new G-SYNC-compatible support, the LG OLED TV will provide the smoothest, most immersive gaming experience without the flicker, tear, or jam that is common to most displays. For a long time, gamers have been evaluating the quality of LG OLED TVs with ultra-fast response times and low input lag. New G-SYNC compatibility support enables players with GTX 16 Series or GeForce RTX 20 Series GPUs to enjoy an optimized vision and maximum responsiveness on LG’s 55″ to 77” inches large OLED TVs.
