Nvidia doesn't have control over the HDMI version of VRR. It's a HDMI feature. Similarly, Freesync uses this open standard. But Nvidia is trying to get companies to get their TV/monitor certified to be working with G-Sync because it is a win-win situation. For the monitors/TV, it will look like their displays managed to meet Nvidia's high standards of getting a proper VRR implementation to get the G-Sync Compatible certification that they can use as a way to promote their product as well. But... If you notice, any monitor or TV that has G-Sync Compatible will confirm be FreeSync compatible as well. Thus, some decide to call it VRR ready and so on.
For Nvidia, their advantage is they'll get their terms such as asking the display makers to highly promote the G-Sync compatible part and push down the word Freesync from the title. Display manufacturers will then replace the word 'Freesync' with VRR.
Either way, the thing is, the hardware is there. Right now, it is hard to get the features on board when all the other devices to connect to the TV are still using HDMI 2.0. Not LG's fault.
There clearly are some kinks that need to be ironed out. HDMI 2.1 was ready a few years back yet no manufacturers have used it yet as the hardware comes with a lot of new advantages that can be exploited. Thus a lot of manufacturers are taking their time to explore this new technology especially the AVR industry who loves to put in the newest technology as quickly as possible. Yet, even for the 2019 sets that have just been released this month (for Denon at least), their AVRs still don't have HDMI 2.1 built in.
Without a proper hardware to connect to the TV, how can we even get HDMI 2.1 features? Right now, by the looks of it, there is a higher chance that the first method that can support HDMI 2.1 is a DisplayPort 1.4 to HDMI 2.1 adaptor. That is our best bet to get 4K 120Hz.
Currently, after downloading the latest Nvidia driver and updated my C9 with the latest firmware, this option has appeared on my Nvidia Control Panel. Mind you, I am using a DisplayPort 1.4 to HDMI 2.0b adaptor. So even if we are not getting a GPU with HDMI 2.1 built-in any time soon, we can still go the DP to HDMI 2.1 adaptor route to achieve 4K 120Hz. In the mean time, be assured that you currently have the best technology available at our disposal and when our players and GPUs support HDMI 2.1, our TV will be able to support all of it. We already have the 48Gbps HDMI 2.1 port. No reason why there would be any problems.
As you can see, the TV's HDMI 2.1 port is clearly ready to receive the 4K 120Hz input. Thus the option is there. Now, we just need to get the already made DP to HDMI 2.1 chipset to adaptor makers like Club3D which says it will be ready by Q1 2020. Nvidia plans to release the next GPU some time in 1H of 2020. So most likely towards the end of the 1H of 2020. So these are the things that you can use if you have the 2019 series of LG TVs before the 2020 version launches.
