What I do not understand:
Why do LG OLEDs need a firmware update for that?
HDMI VRR is available since Day 1 on these TVs.
They fixed one bug with XBox One X a few month ago.
Since then it is working fine.
If NVIDIA GPUs really use HDMI Forums VRR Implementation there should be no
need for a Firmwareupdate on our OLEDs. But as we know a firmware update is required.
This makes me wondering what implementation NVIDIA is using. Obviously not the implementation
the XBox One X is using (HDMI Forum VRR). Maybe NVIDIA is using the same implementation AMD is
using with FreeSync via HDMI (which, as we know is not supported by LG OLEDs just yet).

Why is there need for firmware update then? HDMI Forums VRR should useable right away since
it is implemented in the TV since day 1. I highly doubt that LG needs to add HDMI-VRR support for every VRR device via an update.
All NVIDIA is saying is that they added "HDMI VRR". But as I already said. AMD GPUs also support "HDMI VRR". But they do not
use the implementation suggested by the HDMI Forum. Which is why AMD GPUs are not able to use FreeSync (via HDMI) with 2019 LG OLEDs.
