The announcement of the new GeForce RTX Series 30 GPUs is important not only for gamers but also for TV makers. In a scenario that certainly isn't teeming with such definite sources, LG quickly jumped the ball to promote its 8K TVs as ideal companions for NVIDIA graphics cards. We speak specifically of OLEDs with the ZX series. All the models mentioned support the necessary bandwidth to manage 8K signals at 60 frames per second thanks to HDMI version 2.1 inputs.
LG also reminds you that the 8K range allows you to use other functions useful for gaming such as the Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), also available in the NVDIA version with G-SYNC. Then there is the Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) which automatically selects the video mode that ensures the quickest response to commands. Obviously, in order to manage the 8K resolution it is necessary to combine an RTX 3090, as underlined by Matt Wuebbling, vice president of global GeForce marketing for NVIDIA:
We're thrilled to be able to ensure full support for GeForce RTX Series 30 GPUs on LG 8K OLED TVs. Gamers will be blown away by the performance of these TVs when playing the latest 8K PC games with the most realistic ray tracing and AI capabilities. avant-garde guaranteed by the GeForce RTX 3090 GPU.
Note that LG speaks of full bandwidth for 8K support and also specifies the data indicating a maximum capacity of 48 Gbps. In order to carry this type of signals, however, it will be necessary to wait for a firmware update that will enable the HDMI DSC (Display Stream Compression) function.
The playful experience offered to 8K OLED users also extends to audio. The immersive sound ensured by Dolby Atmos is combined with features such as optimized ambient calibration via the Alpha 9 Gen 3 processor with AI and BT Surround, which uses two LG Bluetooth speakers to create a 4.0-channel virtual surround by upmixing tracks stereo.
S.P. Baik, vice president of the TV product planning division for LG Home Entertainment Company, added:
The combination of the stunning video quality of LG OLED TVs and the technological capabilities of NVIDIA delivers a superior gaming experience in an incredible 8K. After partnering with the world's premier gaming hardware brand last year, we look forward to expanding our partnership with NVIDIA.
