Korean firm LG has announced that its premium televisions now have support for Dolby Vision HDR at 4K 120Hz which makes gameplay on the screens even better. It said that it’s the first TV manufacturer to offer this feature which it says is “reaffirming its commitment to providing the best big-screen gaming experience.”
The new feature arrives with firmware version 03.15.27 which is now rolling out to LG’s C1 and G1 series OLED TVs. Other premium models including LG’s 2021 TV line-up such as the OLED Z1 series, QNED Mini LED QNED99 series, and NanoCell NANO99 series will receive the update in July. If you don’t have one of these models, you’ll be glad to hear that additional 2021 and 2020 TV models are being tested with Dolby Vision gaming at either 60Hz or 120Hz.
Discussing why it thinks it’s the best firm for gaming TVs, LG said:
“Recognized as the best TVs for gaming by trusted publications and avid gamers world over, LG OLED TVs boast features that make games of any genre look incredibly smooth and play fast. With minimal lag, LG TVs deliver amazing gameplay with a level of responsiveness that can help users climb to the top of the leaderboards in their favorite next-gen console and PC challenges.”
Aside from Dolby Vision HDR at 4K 120Hz, the firmware update also brings Game Dashboard to any 2021 LG TVs equipped with Game Optimizer. Game Dashboard is a floating menu that lets you quickly see the TV’s settings and switch them between games using the Standard, FPS, RPG, or RTS presets. It also displays the status of other features like black stabilizer, low latency, and variable refresh rate (VRR).
