Just wanted to say I've got a 2080 Super connected to my new B9 and it really is the best gaming experience I've ever had. I thought I might miss my old ultrawide, 3440x1440p, 100hz display but now I can't imagine going back to it.

It's under "Display" when in the Gsync menu.

I don't have this set yet, but with my current Sony X900F, I have my pc hooked up to that with the surround sound system, and then a pc monitor with stereo speakers. Currently, I switch between displays with the Project keyboard shortcut of Win+P. Most of the time it switches displays and changes the audio output device to the correct ones too.


Do you know of any issues with your setup, or switching displays?
I only have the one display. My preamp does not have a video scaler it just routes the hdmi signals. Which means I only have to switch inputs on the LG C9. Your setup seems a tad bit more complex. Every now and then on startup my pc switches the audio to the tv rather than the pre-amp, its not often. Back in 2015 I had a similar setup as you and ran into problems assigning display with audio so I do get a tad nervous when updating drivers but so far everything has worked fine.
Thanks for the prompt reply!

Does anyone else here have a surround sound setup AND have their pc hooked up to a monitor as well that can comment on how it works?

I'm not 100% sure on this, but doesn't AMD implement LFC at the driver level, therefore making an HDMI 2.1-equipped "big Navi" GPU (Radeon 5900XT?) actually be a better gaming experience since it'd give the benefit of both 4k120Hz + LFC as well as hardware-accelerated raytracing on an OLED TV?

It was the Windows 10 Xbox Game Bar (beta). I had been using this tool exclusively as a frame rate counter as it was easily accessible, and worked on all of the games I play. Unfortunately, it also disables the ability to properly display G-sync with Vsync enabled in the NVCP, and was causing slight tearing even when it was engaged. I've tested this with the Pendulum demo from Nvidia. With G-sync on in the CP, and the XB Game Bar active, I can't toggle the Gsync option in the demo at all but the G-sync On icon shows on screen, and tearing is visible between 40-60. With the game bar disabled, I am able to toggle Gsync within the demo, and there is no tearing at all. Seems fixed. Looks good.

Thanks to all that tried to assist! Hope my mistake helps someone else down the line.
How do you toggle the Gsync Icon? I know in the Driver Menu, you can select to have it shown, but it is shown all the time. I did not know you can toggle it off while in a game...so would be great to know how to do this. Thanks!

(1) 2019 LG OLEDs dont support Freesync (and AMD cards dont support HDMI-VRR yet)
(2) i really dont see much point to LFC for PC gaming .. the VRR range is 40-120 and you shouldnt ever really be playing with sub-40 fps anyway on PC
(3) I am quite certain that 3080Ti will be a faster GPU than the biggest Navi, but we will see

I was going on the basis that an AMD GPU with HDMI 2.1 would presumably support HDMI Forum VRR.

Also the 2020 OLEDs list FreeSync: https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-oled65c...4k-tv#pdp_spec

Quick question (but slightly long post) regarding HDR for those using a 2019 OLED with a 20X0 series card. I've been playing some Game Pass games using the Xbox app and I've noticed that when I'm playing a game in SDR and I unlock an achievement, the screen will briefly switch to HDR during the achievement notification and then back to HDR once the notification is finished. Oddly, with some games I notice that they look WAY better during the brief moment it switches to HDR. So my question is--is there any way to force HDR even for games that are just in SDR? Not sure if it's something I'd want to do regularly but I thought it might be fun to to experiment with how games look in HDR mode. I know I can get everything to run in HDR if I play in windowed mode so I'm mostly curious to see if there's a way to force HDR while in full screen.


Incidentally, I can't confirm this but I could have sworn when I first connected my PC to my B9 that everything was playing in HDR10, even when it wasn't supposed to be. Unfortunately, I experienced a nasty glitch when I tried running Mass Effect Andromeda in Dolby Vision to see how it looked but all I got was a blank screen and then my PC started running everything in Dolby Vision so I had to reinstall all my drivers to fix it. Once I got everything running properly that's when I noticed that all my SDR games were running in SDR, just like they should. But again, I'm just wondering if there's a way to force HDR10.

Thats a good question. I would assume it would display for a few seconds then fade. I'll have to test it.

Anyway, you should know that this feature has more input lag than using a game FPS limiter (but less than V-sync obviously) So if your game has a FPS limiter, always use that instead.

Has anyone installed these new drivers? I held off because of the disasters over in the NVIDIA forums and the sticky thread with the new release. Seems its really messing up peoples PC's
