LG comes up with update for issues with RTX 3080 in conjunction with OLED TVs

LG says it will come up with a solution sometime in the coming weeks to address the previously reported problems of using RTX 3080 video cards in conjunction with its oled TVs from this and last year.

In a statement to Forbes LG says it is aware of compatibility issues on some OLED TVs used in conjunction with the Nvidia RTX 3080. “A firmware update is already under development and there are plans to release it in the coming weeks for LG’s HDMI 2.1 TVs from 2020 and 2019,” the manufacturer said. This should address the issues. LG says it will release more information as soon as the update is ready. The company apologizes

A owners of an LG OLED TV this or last year and an RTX 3080 video card recently complained of two problems. For example, the G-Sync Compatible feature on the RTX 3080 video card in conjunction with the OLED TVs can result in a black image at an output of 120Hz. G-Sync Compatible is Nvidia’s name for the implementation of the HDMI 2.1 feature variable refresh rate; AMD calls it FreeSync.

Avering, users of LG’s OLED TVs reported this year that it will not be possible to get 120Hz in 4k images with 4:4:4/4 display without compression. Also, the 2020 OLED TVs with HDMI 2.1 and a bandwidth of 40Gbit/s should be able to display that without compression, but in the practices TVs were found to switch to 4:2:2 subsampling. The 2019 models don’t have this problem.
