It supports FreeSync for nearly tear-free gaming, low input lag with motion interpolation, and a convenient Auto Low Latency Mode.”


LG C9 OLED

  • The LG C9 OLED uses pixel level dimming to enable each of the 8.3 million individually lit pixels to brighten, dim or power off completely, to reproduce “perfect” black and provide excellent picture detail.

It has a nearly instantaneous response time, so fast-moving objects have no blur trail behind them, and it has excellent low input lag for a responsive gaming experience.

TCL 6-Series

TechRadar saidThe last point that’s worth making on the HD/SDR performance is that gamers can expect extremely low levels of input lag on the 6-Series. TCL says they measured it at around 17.7ms, which would put the 6-Series right around where we measured the LG OLED E8 – a TV that is significantly more expensive.
