Xiaomi Preparing OLED Gaming TVs with NVIDIA G-Sync Support

Xiaomi is preparing to release their next-generation Mi OLED gaming television lineup with support for NVIDIA G-Sync. Xiaomi has posted three teasers on their Weibo account about the upcoming TV promoting its OLED panel and G-Sync support however they are yet to announce any details about potential resolutions, refresh rates, or prices. The TV may be part of the NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display program which all include dedicated G-Sync modules however no confirmation has been given by either company. We can deduce that the TV will support HDMI 2.1 given the inclusion the NVIDIA G-Sync support and the lack of bandwidth offered by HDMI 2.0. Xiaomi will release more details for the Mi OLED TV at an official announcement on August 10th.

Well, currently I have no high end gaming PC rig, and still no PS5 or Xbox Series X (I intend to own all 3 someday, because I a big boy now I can do what I want) lol.

Once I acquire at least one of those though, I will be getting an OLED, one way or another. CX is sold out now. but C1 is on sale for $1299 at most places now, so I am fine with paying that price for the 48", but I am not getting it until I have one of those 3 first...

My local library has free 4k blu ray rentals... lots of 4k movies to choose from... so as soon as I get me one of those consoles with the 4k blu ray player, I am golden. probably will end up watching more 4k blu ray movies than gaming at first... well because free, and also just that experience is amazing. Only experience it once at a Best Buy store.

they even have the Lord of the Rings remaster 4k blu rays for free rentals at my local library, its crazy awesome. I'm frustrated I still can't get a PS5 or Xbox Series X at msrp... i check about every day, almost got lucky a couple times, but no cigar. I will keep trying. as far as next gen PC's go, I am waiting for AM5 socket. pretty happy with my backlog PC games and gtx 1070 laptop and 165hz 1080p screen. this IPS screen I have is no joke, it truly looks better than $500 IPS 1440p monitors I have seen (not in clarity) but in backlight bleed, color pop, brightness, contrast, etc. best $160 I ever spent.

With HDMI 2.1 we might get more 4K TVs at fewer inches, which will be nice. It's pity we don't have 4K TVs at 32'' - 40'' with FreeSync already. At least next year we could see some 43'' 4K TVs with VRR(/FreeSync/GSync).
Almost all good monitors are curved making them non existent for anyone insisting on flat.

G-sync chips don't support HDMI 2.1, at most it's 2.0. Unless it's just "g-sync compatible", like most of displays with VRR/freesync...

The question is - will the TV have true 120Hz, or 60Hz with MEMC?

I bet this isn't GSync module based display. It is HDMI 2.1 VRR, same as LG's OLED line.
Nvidia has changed their tune and seems to let HDMI 2.1 VRR capable displays be marketed as GSync, not GSync compatible but the gist of it is the same - marketing logo aside this is standard VRR, not GSync module.

I would have one on my desk if not the upcoming 42" OLED panels - hopefully actual TVs will surface this year.

So now they have Gsync, Gsync compatible, and... still Gsync Ultimate?

Holy moly, I know politicians that do less turning around on the same thing. Just let it go, Huang... its so so sad.


... still waiting on OLED at desk space diagonals... will it happen...?


Side note... so the Chinese have no characters for OLED? Weirdos.

This lineup actually does not sound too bad. Gsync is the old module based VRR, GSync Ultimate is the new module based VRR and GSync Compatible is based on a standard solution - DP Adaptive-Sync or HDMI 2.1 VRR.
If they want to leave the "Compatible" part out for TV-s, that is just fine.

Competition is not doing much better with naming. FreeSync, FreeSync Premium and FreeSync Premium Pro.
FreeSync Premium was added to simplify marketing of LFC and a minimum high refresh rate. Premium Pro used to be Freesync 2 HDR before rebranding.

Nice, but I also use my computers for actual work, so a lot of static elements for many hours, so no OLED for me. If microLED finds it's way to market, on the other hand... But I'm in no hurry, I have a good 43" screen.

LG Display - the panel manufacturer - said 42" OLED panels are in production this year. The actual TV sets will come later.

This is exactly what is is, just like the LGs.
