    "And through the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports, all 2019 OLED TVs and selected NanoCell TVs with ThinQ AI will support high frame rate (HFR). The result is smoother and clearer motion at 120 frames per second for better rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies. Support for enhanced audio return channel (eARC) enables home theater enthusiasts to seamlessly utilize HDMI connectivity and enjoy the highest quality audio formats available with superb detail and depth. An excellent option for gamers, the new TVs are compatible with variable refresh rate (VRR) as well as automatic low latency mode (ALLM) which helps deliver a clean image, without stutter or tearing."

    Does that mean 4k@120 Hz + VRR?

    Usually the high refresh rate are interpolation algorithims via a GPU or ASIC to the video such as using SVP on the PC CPU/GPU. Looks great if the software is up to par and I wonder how it will do it at up to 8K because that would be a monster GPU to do the work!

    If the sets also support native video input to 120 hz such as PC then that is a win for PC gamers.

    Edit - HDMI 2.1 technically can support up to 4K @ 240 hz or 8k @ 60 hz! 48Gbits per second!!!

    There was a nice table (in a image) on the club3d product information website for there latest HDMI 2.1 cables (CAC-1371 and 1372) but I think they have removed it for some good or bad reasons. Although I have found a similar table elsewhere on their website. It is a very nice table to understand fully the implication of various factors.

    Edit: Oh, I have found it on their amazon listing. (Perhaps I was mistaken as to the location of this image?)

    Unless they start using VA panels on their LED 4k TVs there is literally no point to buy LG LED's as the contrast ratio is the worst of almost all other 4k tvs available at the same price point. And once you have bad contrast ratio, everything looks off: washed out colors, non-existent black color (nothing even close to it), Horrible Black uniformity. If they could solve these issues, which is unlikely (as by the looks of it they are fully committed to OLED and don't really care about LED TV quality anymore), they could have the best of both worlds: full control over oled panel market and LED TVs.

    I have this painful issue. I bought a 65" RCA LED 4K at Walmart few months ago for $320 and OMG the black is so horrible even around the the edges of the tv it's like a ghostly black/white haze. Now I have two little dead black pixels right next to the plastic bezel. One appeared and another one a few weeks later. If you press the plastic bezel frame the ghosting goes away so it looks like RCA put too much pressure around the corners of the screen during the building process from the factory. The black is just freakin horrible! Only good thing is this tv is by far the brightest of the many I owned or other family members. Lowest setting is too bright for watching movies or bright stuff like SOUTH PARK show.

    Does VRR work on Nvidia also through Hdmi 2.1 on next gen cards? (If the cards come with hdmi 2.1)

    Found your problem.

    RCA doesn't exist anymore, anything created under that name is simply garbage trying to pose under a name brand people remember as being a thing.

    For instance, what you bought should be labeled as a Technicolor 65" 4K LED HDTV, or better yet a Thompson 65" 4K LED HDTV. And yes, you'll probably recognize the technicolor name as something that....quite frankly should have died in the 70s are 80s. This is another scheme effectively as a company called "Thompson" bought technicolor in 2001, and renamed themselves to technicolor in 2010 since they owned the naming. The point is: RCA is simply the name some random company is using to brand their TVs with, as they Thompson did not purchase the manufacturing plant, talent, and etc. that was once RCA, only the branding.

    You should probably look at reviews before you buy electronics next time, no way in hell i'd buy something like a TV straight off the shelf.

    You would have been better off getting a TCL.

    Realistically they'd be fighting themselves if they did that. If they put as much time and effort into LCD TVs (not sure why people call them an LED, as that's just the type of backlight they use, not the display technology, and none use anything other then that to my knowledge anymore since it's actually cheaper and better) then they'd have to put that time and money cost into the TV as well. Then, you'd get TVs that are as expensive as Samsungs high end LCD TVs. Samsungs high end LCD TVs rival OLED TVs in price. So LG would either be fighting their own products, OLED vs high end LCD, or increase the price of OLEDs, which obviously wouldn't be good for consumers.
