LG G-Sync Firmware Update will be available this week on compatible 2019 OLED TVs in North America. The company announces that three OLED TV product lines will receive this feature: E9, C9 and B9 input levels. According to LG, TVs from other regions will receive the update by the end of the year.
G-Sync is Nvidia’s variable refresh rate technology that prevents screen breaks by synchronizing the graphics card with the screen. So far, this technology is more likely to be found on computer monitors than on TVs.
Recently, Nvidia opened the standard and made it compatible with monitors that previously only supported AMD FreeSync technology, and now some LG TVs.
Since G-Sync is Nvidia’s technology, you need a computer with an Nvidia graphics card, especially the Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-Series or GTX 16-Series GPU. When you connect a compatible LG TV with new firmware update, you will notice variable refresh rates up to 120 Hz.
Most TVs, if not all, may be equipped with variable refresh rates, as the latest HDMI 2.1 standard has built-in features. However, the new connection version for personalized graphics cards is not yet available. In this case, any combination of graphics cards and televisions should have a variable degree of upgrade, assuming they both use HDMI 2.1.
