“LG always wants to give our customers flexibility. We wanted to give gamers the maximum options possible with their Sound Bar and were glad to expand those options to support up to 4K 120Hz YCbCr 4:2:0 at 8 Bits,” LG said in a statement to flatpanelshd. “This gives gamers the option to prioritize what they value most in gaming be it resolution, color, refresh rate, and bit rate. So for example, the gamer that values resolution now has the ability to game at 4K 60Hz RGB 4:4:4 8 bits or YCbCr 4:4:4 at 10 bits.For the gamer that values refresh rate, they now have the ability to play games at 1080P 120Hz RGB 4:4:4 10 bits. These choices are now possible on supported Sound Bars with the new firmware that we are providing updates upon.”
