Vizio OLED 4K TVs announced: Competitively priced 55-inch and 65-inch models with a ProGaming Engine featuring VRR support and HDMI 2.1
Vizio has announced its 2021 TV Collection, which consists of the P-Series Quantum X, P-Series Quantum, M-Series Quantum, and the V-Series. Along with those ranges are the new 55-inch and 65-inch Vizio OLED TVs, which are the first OLED sets to be produced by the American company. The new OLEDs feature a “luxury borderless design” and have a peak brightness of 800 nits. A built-in Vizio IQ Ultra processor handles all the smart-related tasks.
Gamers are definitely one of the groups Vizio is targeting with these new 120 Hz OLEDs. Both sets feature the company’s ProGaming Engine, which offers a whole feast of goodies that should please fussy gamers. The ProGaming Engine allows for variable refresh rate support (VRR), and conveniently, considering that both the PS5 and Xbox Series X feature AMD CPUs and GPUs, the Vizio OLEDs can also handle AMD FreeSync. There’s a low latency mode for serious gaming sessions and even an auto game mode that can identify when games are being played via the input signal.
The 55-inch Vizio OLED TV is priced at a competitive level of US$1,300 while the 65-inch Vizio OLED TV has a price tag of US$2,000. Vizio is known for its affordable TVs, and the above prices are still cheaper than similar products from rivals such as LG. With HDMI 2.1, HDR10+ support, Dolby Vision, Dolby TrueHD, and a svelte measurement of just 4 mm at their thinnest points, the new Vizio OLED 4K TVs should appeal to next-gen console owners and regular TV viewers alike.
