A firmware update for LG OLED TVs: In October it was announced that users of various LG OLED TVs experience problems with the VRR modes of the devices. The televisions suffer from a stuttering image at high frame rates in combination with variable refresh rate (VRR) or G-Sync. LG has now rolled out a firmware update that should fix this problem.
The problem is in the variable refresh rate modes (VRR) of LG’s OLED TVs. It is a stuttering image at high frame rates (HFR) when G-Sync is used in combination with an Nvidia RTX 30 video card. With this issue, the image hangs briefly and skips a number of frames, basically achieving the opposite of the smooth experience G-Sync should provide.
The firmware update on the website from LG, is suitable for the CX-series, GX-series and WX-series OLED TVs of 2020. The update will soon be rolled out automatically to the relevant models. According to LG itself, the update should allow smooth VRR playback for PC and console games. If you have a ZX-series OLED TV, Nano99-series LCD TV or Nano95-series LCD TV from LG, you still have to be patient. The update for these models will be released towards the end of this year.
