If you own or are considering buying an LG 2019 OLED TV, the firmware update to provide a "G-Sync Compatible" validated experience will become available in select markets in the coming weeks.

Other enhancements offered by this recently announced feature include an input lag of only 6ms while displaying 1440p content at 120Hz, along with it increasing to the 13ms range for 4K content at 60Hz, the manufacturer confirms.

This feature is not native, however, it's important to note, with LG explaining that if a user connects a notebook or PC sporting an Nvidia ray tracing (RTX) GPU, refresh rates of up to 120Hz should be on offer.

LG makes some of the best 4K TVs for gaming, and its 2019 OLED lineup is about to get even better with an upcoming update that will add variable refresh rate support via G-Sync to models ranging in size from 55-77 inches. The graphics card maker's technology enables the TVs display to match the frame rates from a gaming computer.

LG says that its OLED TVs already have a reputation for "exceptional picture quality, low input lag and an ultra-fast response time", and that they are thus attractive to gamers.

With Nvidia G-Sync support, LG OLED TVs could be a great choice for gaming. Likewise, the displays support HDR10 and Dolby Vision gaming, along with HDMI 2.1 features like auto low latency mode (ALLM), enhanced audio return channel (eARC), and variable refresh rate (VRR).

"We are excited to bring G-Sync Compatible support to LG's 2019 OLED TVs and HDMI Variable Refresh Rate support to our GeForce RTX 20-Series GPUs", said GeForce marketing head Matt Wuebbling.

The latest OLED TV models have additional HDR formats. These models also incorporate LG's deep learning-based AI sound for captivating virtual 5.1 surround. The "Life's Good" marketing theme encompasses how LG is dedicated to people's happiness by exceeding expectations today and tomorrow.
