LG positioned some of its most high-end televisions, including the C1 and G1 OLED versions, as perfect for big-screen gaming before to their 2021 debut. It has made some progress toward fulfilling these promises with recent improvements to AMD Freesync Premium/NVIDIA G-SYNC, variable refresh rates (VRR), and auto-low latency (ALL).
Now, the latest firmware update for the same devices includes another potentially critical feature: Dolby Vision HDR.
This new setting may support up to 4K/120Hz, depending on the gaming platform utilised on the aforementioned televisions. LG also revealed that this upgrade will include a new Game Dashboard to their user interface.
It is intended to be a more direct and expedient route to the Game Optimiser Menu, which is required to access controls for features such as ALL, VRR, and G-Sync.
This revised firmware (version 03.15.27) is currently being handed out to select televisions, including the award-winning 48C1. However, the OEM anticipates launching other lines in July 2021, including the OLED Z1, mini-LED QNED99, and NanoCell NANO99 series.
Finally, LG is actively considering its implementation on other LG televisions starting in 2021, not to mention 2020.
