LG C6 2016 OLED = 1080p @ 60Fps 3D Gaming. Better than Nvision 3D TV Play

Hi, just wanted to let others know an unexpected bonus of this amazing 3D OLED TV. I assume the same is true for the E6 and G6 series. Also this is most liekly only true for the 65in ver as i velieve the 55in ver do not resolve true 1080p 3D.

I have owned about x4 3D TVs and x3 3D projectors.

Those of you who play 3D games using a PC to your TV know about the limitations. Unless you use a nvidia 3D monitor... you on only get 3D in, 720p@60fps or 1080p @ a useless 24fps! Extremely frustarting!

I found a solution by pure luck. If you have a 3D game that supports Over & Under or SBS 3D (Trine 1, 2 & 3, Tomb raider 2015 and Rise of the tomb raider for example. You can set the game resolution to 2560 or even 4k, then enable OU or SBS 3D. This LG tv is the only TV know that can render OU & SBS 3D at any resolution your PC has the power to output. 4k would be max of course. So if you set your game to 4k, you get 3D at about 2k 1080p at 60fps... if your GPU has the horse power.

Thanks to input from another avs member i was reminded the obvious. Becuase the LG 3D is passive 3D, to get the best quality 3D gaming use Over/Under 3D where possible. Using AA your 3D games will now look like 3D animated movies in terms of picture quality yet can be played at 60fps or more if you have a powerful GPU. SBS still looks good but its slightly blurry conpared to OU.

Its truely amazing and the 3D looks beautiful! Thank you LG for making such an amazing TV!

Ive tried this with my sony 940C and it wont enable SBS 3d unless the resolution is 1080. In that case you get effectlively 720p 3D at 60fps which looks rubbish.

I dont know if this feature is unique to LG 2016 3D TVs.

Also for ganes that dont support OU & SBS 3D natively, i use a app called tridep. This also allows most popular games to render 3D at any chosen resolution and refresh rate.

Please let me know if there are other 3D TVs that can accept a higher than 1080p output from PC for OU & SBS 3D.

Enjoy , i hope this helps others get over the Nvidia 3D TV frustating imposed(?) limits.
Actionable Mango and EVERRET like this.

It should work on any model that's LG and 4K with passive 3D. I don't do any gaming, but film with 4K 3D and produce top/bottom in 4K and it plays just fine from my Mac to TV. I have a 2014 model, I think the 2015 version is basically the same so should work on anything 2014-2016 from LG and 4K passive. I will say the color is really nice on this LG, I actually like it better than my 28" 4K Asus monitor when it's set to vivid.

I think on the Sony models as someone here pointed out you have to use line alternate mode to get higher than 1080p resolution in 3D to work.

This line intentionally left blank.

Yes sorry Tridef. Sadly tridef has hit and miss success depending on the game.

What kind of GPU does it take to do this? I have a GTX980 which is no slouch, but nevertheless in Rise of the Tomb Raider I cannot get 60fps even at 1440p.

I'm pretty sure the GPU is the bottleneck. Nothing else in the system seems to be bothered at all by the game (CPU & memory seem fine):

Rise of tomb raider us extremely taxing on gpu. Firstly set your textures resolution to Very high and not ultra.

I have dual 980s in SLI.
