This G-Sync tech ensures that the frame rates being put out by your gaming PC are matched by the display and syncronised for the best possible experience.
LG says this update is rolling out to its 55 to 77-inch 4K OLED models. Of course, it's not just G-Sync that gamers should get excited about with these TVs as they are also packed full of other tech to enhance your gaming sessions like HDR 10 support, Dolby Vision, up to 120Hz refresh rate as well as both Dolby Atmos and Dolby TrueHD for an enhanced sound experience.
Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at Nvidia commented "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."
The best news is this compatibility is now arriving in the form of a simple firmware update. Various models in LG's 2019 OLED TV line-up will get this update including the E9 (65 and 55 inches), C9 (77, 65 and 55 inches) and B9 (65 and 55 inches). The roll-out is starting in the US first, followed by other regions, with the promise of all regions getting the upgrade by the end of the year.
