8K gaming is now a possibility.
Announced as part of IFA 2020, LG’s new 8K OLED TVs are now the world’s first TVs to support Nvidia’s new RTX 30 series GPUs that were announced last week. The TVs are powered by LG’s α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI processor that allows 8K full bandwidth support that translates to more than 33 million pixels.
These OLED TVs also have a bunch of gamer-centric features that include Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), ultra-fast response rate, and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). Since the TV’s are also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync, you’re getting flicker-free gaming without any tearing that’s a common trait on most displays.
The processor is also able to optimize the image and performance of real-time ray-tracing. It also allows the TV to deliver 8K content at 60 fps, making those games look more realistic than ever.
“We are excited to bring GeForce RTX 30-Series GPU support to LG’s 2020 8K OLED TVs,” said Matt Wuebbling, vice president of global GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. “Gamers will be blown away by the performance on these TVs when playing the latest 8K PC games featuring the most realistic ray-tracing and cutting-edge AI features powered by the GeForce RTX 3090 GPU.”
Other features of the new LG 8K OLED TVs include support for Dolby Atmos audio along with LG’s AI-based Acoustic Tuning. There’s also support for dual Bluetooth connections so you can connect two speakers or headphones simultaneously.
As of press time, LG hasn’t confirmed a released date.
