LG has begun rolling out an update that brings Dolby Vision HDR support at 4K 120Hz for gaming on compatible platforms across multiple premium series. The South Korean company claims to be the first TV manufacturer to do so. While LG has confirmed that the update is rolling out to the 2021 C1 and G1 OLED TVs, the report says last year’s CX and BX models will also be updated to support Dolby Vision HDR in 4K 120Hz gaming. In addition, the update also adds user-friendly controls.
According to press note LG’s update with firmware version 03.15.27 is now rolling out to LG’s C1 and G1 series OLED TVs, making them the first TVs in the world to support Dolby Vision HDR at 4K 120Hz on compatible platforms. Beyond these lineups, the South Korean company says other premium models such as the OLED Z1 series, the QNED Mini LED QNED99 series and the NanoCell NANO99 series TVs will also receive an update in July.

There are currently no games with Dolby Vision support, and the Xbox Series X, Series S consoles are the first next generation consoles to support games up to 8K at an ultra-high frame rate of 120fps. According to reportsThe PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch are expected to receive the same, as neither Dolby Vision nor Dolby Atmos are exclusive to the Xbox. When Dolby Vision-enabled games become available, gamers will be able to enjoy brighter highlights, sharper contrast, and brighter colors while playing. Dolby Vision Games said to automatically match the player’s Dolby Vision display for full picture reproduction.
In addition to supporting Dolby Vision HDR in 4K 120Hz gaming, LG’s update also adds Game Optimizer to Game Dashboard.

This allows players to quickly view their TV settings and switch between different genres – standard, FPS, RPG, or RTS – without stopping the current game. “The dashboard also displays the status of other modes such as black stabilizer activated, low latency and variable refresh rate (VRR),” the company said.
