Dolby Vision 120HzIf you own the Xbox Series X you can enjoy a handful of console games in Dolby Vision at up to 120fps – with or without VRR. If you have the right TV, that is. LG became the first TV maker to support Dolby Vision beyond 60Hz when it updated models like C1 and G1 earlier this year. After expanding support further to CX and GX earlier this month, LG has now started rolling out Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz compatibility more widely across its high-end 2020 and 2021 OLED and LCD models.

"Reaffirming its dedication to delivering the best big-screen gaming experience around, LG is updating a total of 14 LG TV series to offer support for Dolby Vision gaming at 4K 120Hz."

PlayStation 5 supports 4K120 with HDR10 but not Dolby Vision. No media players support 4K120 Dolby Vision output at this time but we expect the first ones to appear over the next few years. LG previously said that it is "looking into" the possibility of bringing Dolby Vision 120Hz support to C9 from 2019 but the company did not provide an update on the matter at this time.
