LG To Issue a Firmware to Fix HDR Gaming Lag on Their 2016 OLED TVs


LG OLED TVs are a pinnacle of supreme picture quality and the first sets were released this year. These sets feature dolby vision and HDR and along with a perfect picture quality, they’re the ones to get as a future proof purchase.

The downsides to the purchase of an OLED TV is the high cost. The 2016 sets also have slight input lag while using HDR mode for gaming and this could be a dealbreaker for most gamers.

LG has announced that they are aware of the input lag complaints and will be releasing a firmware to alleviate these issues.

Here’s their full statement:

“LG Electronics has been made aware that some customers are experiencing lag on their displays when playing HDR games on LG TVs. LG engineers are currently working on a firmware patch to address the issue which is expected to roll out shortly.

LG is also working on a solution for 2017 LG TV models which may include the option of an HDR gaming mode. LG is committed to providing the highest standards of product quality and customer service. As such, we regret any inconvenience this has caused our customers and confirm our commitment to resolving this issue as quickly as possible.”

Good news for LG OLED TV owners, as they can enjoy latest games that support HDR without worrying too much about input lag. All PS4s will support HDR.
