Sony has not abandoned its plans to bring HDMI 2.1's VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) to the popular X900H / XH90 4K TVs, the company confirms to FlatpanelsHD.
Coming with future update
Panic erupted on forums and social media last week after Sony removed references on some of its local support pages to the long-awaited HDMI 2.1 VRR and ALLM features for Sony X900H / XH90
Sony now assures everyone that nothing has changed. It is still planning to bring VRR and ALLM support to Sony X900H (North America) / XH90 (Europe).
- "XH90 will support VRR and ALLM via a future firmware update. Any articles on Sony sites that stated otherwise have been updated with the correct information," Sony said in a statement to FlatpanelsHD.
HDMI 2.1 VRR will let users enjoy variable refresh rates for smoother gameplay together with a compatible game console like Xbox Series X or a PC. ALLM will let the TV auto-switch into Game mode with compatible sources.
The company did not provide a timeline for the firmware update.
