LG says that the promised Nvidia G-Sync update, for smoother gaming performance, will begin rolling out this week to the 2019 B9, C9, and E9 models.
G-Sync for LG 2019 OLED
The feature was announced in September for LG's 2019 C9 and E9 series. The companies now confirm that the more affordable B9 OLED models will also be compatible with G-Sync.
- "Nvidia G-Sync Compatibility will be available on LG’s 2019 OLED TV models E9 (65 and 55 inches), C9 (77, 65 and 55 inches) as well as B9 (65 and 55 inches)," LG said.
LG informs us that the required firmware update will roll out starting this week. It will arrive first to customers in North America, then Europe and other regions before the end of the year.
- "As the first TVs to offer Nvidia G-Sync Compatible support in the industry, LG is once again demonstrating its commitment to delivering the most advanced gaming experience," said Sam Kim, SVP of TV product planning, LG HE. "Our partnership with Nvidia, the world’s premiere gaming hardware brand, are helping our 2019 OLED TVs set a new standard in gaming performance."
LG and Nvidia have not released technical specifications regarding G-Sync range, resolution etc.
Besides G-Sync (with GeForce RTX 20 and GTX 16 GPUs), the TVs are compatible with HDMI 2.1 VRR. LG has not commented on FreeSync, which is supported in Samsung's 2018 and 2019 TVs, although with limitations.
