Nyvidia G-Sync is a feature that allows PC monitors and laptop screens to display games more consistently. It’s especially valuable when you’re digging into more demanding gaming experiences, it lessens screen tearing, juddering and stuttering.

We reviewed the LG OLED55E9 back in June and were impressed with the set’s capabilities. Gaming experiences on the TV could be about to improve even further and we’re interested to see how the firmware update complements the E9.

In his review, Trusted Reviews‘ Kob Monney described the LG E9 as: “A terrific OLED TV from LG: the E9 packs in plenty of features, excellent audio and delivers terrific picture quality across a range of content. While Samsung’s QLEDs can go brighter, and LG’s C9 is perhaps a better value proposition, the E9 offers an outstanding and (near) complete package.”
