In an announcement by LG, the company has revealed their plans to bring G-Sync to its 2019 OLED TVs. This means that gamers who tend to game on their TVs or want to use their TVs as a gaming display will be able to benefit from G-Sync as well. For those who are unfamiliar with NVIDIA’s G-Sync tech, it is where it synchronizes your display’s refresh rates to that of your computer’s GPU.
This means that both your display and GPU will share the same refresh rate which will prevent issues like screen tearing and also help minimize stutter and input lag. According to Sam Kim, senior vice president of the TV product planning division of Home Entertainment at LG, “With NVIDIA G-SYNC adoption, we are showing that OLED TVs have the support and backing of the world’s top gaming hardware brand to make their products look their best.”
The feature is expected to arrive as a firmware update in the following weeks, so if you already own one of the company’s 2019 OLED TVs, then this is something to look forward to.
