This is a big deal. I'd wait for CES announcements for 2020 TVs to get HDMI 2.1 but if you already bought an LG OLED you are gonna be happy to have this feature on existing sets!

The feature only matters if you are going to hook up a PC with an NVidia graphics card.

They drop 3D support and then add a "feature" that even less people will ever use. Brilliant.

My OLED (C8) is unfortunately a year too "old" to support this update, but I do hope adaptive synchronization is widely adopted... or something like it. I am FAR more interested in the proper handling of frame rate and color information than in the mindless push for more pixels. I'm quite frankly tired of so many high-resolution games that chug along at 25-30 fps. They make pretty screenshots, I guess?

This kind of adaptive synchronization does introduce some latency, but my understanding is it's a much smaller latency window than traditional vsync methods. For most games, I'd much rather have a little latency than screen tearing and stuttering.

Not 30 fps. Like I wrote: 25-30 fps. I'm very sensitive to frame rates that move around in that range without sticking the landing.
