LG has revealed that certain 2019 OLED TVs will gain G-SYNC compatibility via a firmware update. This will apply to 55- to 75-inch C9 and 55 or 65 inch E9 variants. The OEM asserts that this development will enhance immersion in gameplay using these devices.

LG has announced that it has been working with NVIDIA to bring G-SYNC support to some of this high-end OLED TVs. They are the 55 and 75 models of the E9 (or Glass) series, or 55- to 75-inch variants of the C9 line. They are all 4K panels equipped with the Korean company's in-house AI, ThinQ.

LG asserts that G-SYNC will enhance the TVs' already high level of immersion during gaming. These panels also come with a refresh rate of up to 120 hertz, as well as a response rate of 6 milliseconds. Tim Alessi, LG USA's head of home entertainment product marketing, has accordingly noted that, "It's no secret LG OLED TVs are coveted by gamers globally and we are committed to optimizing the experience for them". 

The new G-SYNC compatibility is also slated to arrive in conjunction with HDMI Variable Refresh Rate support for the RTX 20-Series. These updates will obviously require a compatible graphics card, and will be conferred on these LG TVs in an upcoming firmware update in some of the markets in which they are sold.
