LG promises firmware fixes for CX/C9 OLED TVs to address RTX 3080 issues

As we reported earlier this week, users of Nvidia's RTX 3080 graphics cards have been facing problems when using their graphics cards with LG's 2019/2020 C9/CX series OLED TVs, screens which boast 4K 120Hz support over HDMI 2.1 with G-Sync support.

Since then, LG has confirmed that their CX series of OLED TVs have been downsampling chroma signals from 4:4:4 to 4:2:2 when running at 4K 120Hz using Nvidia's latest graphics cards. This downgrade is bad news for PC users, at it creates blurry text and delivers a sub-par PC experience. Furthermore, enabling G-Sync at 4K 120Hz with Nvidia's latest graphics cards also presents issues, which is not a good look for Nvidia's leading provider of G-Sync Compatible HDMI 2.1 TVs. 

LG has committed to fixing these issues on their screens, promising to deliver new firmware updates which will solve these problems. Gamers should expect to see these compatibility fixes arrive within the "next few weeks", though no strict timeline has been provided for these updates. 

Below is LG's full statement regarding RTX 30 series compatibility, as provided to Forbes

   LG has been made aware that some LG OLED TVs are experiencing certain compatibility issues with the recently launched Nvidia RTX 30 Series graphics card. An updated firmware has been in development with plans for a roll out within the next few weeks to LG’s 2020 and 2019 HDMI 2.1 capable TVs, which should address these incompatibility issues. When ready, additional information will be available on the LG website and in the software update section of owners’ LG TVs. We apologise for the inconvenience to our loyal customers and thank them for their support as we continue to push the boundaries of gaming technology and innovation.
