Game with your Samsung TV and NVIDIA graphics card

Samsung TV with mouse and keyboard for gaming

With the new NVIDIA RTX 30 Series graphics card, you can use your PC and TV together to experience high-resolution gaming. The RTX 30 Series graphics card supports HDMI 2.1, which features 4K resolution at 120 FPS, and 8K resolution at 60 FPS. The graphics card also uses a variable refresh rate and G-Sync compatibilities for streamlined gaming. 

Note: Your TV must support HDMI 2.1 technology to use the NVIDIA RTX 30 Series graphics card.

Graphics card features

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics card supports HDMI 2.1 and can be used on Samsung TVs. The card includes some extra features as well:

  • Fixed Rate Link (FRL): A signaling technology that is able to achieve higher uncompressed resolutions, including 8K. It’s also able to use 48Gbps ultra high speed bandwidth.

  • Display Stream Compression (DSC): A lossless compression algorithm that can achieve higher resolutions and faster refresh rates, such as 4K at 120FPS. It also includes greater color depths at 8K. 

  • Variable Refresh Rate (VRR): VRR eliminates screen tearing for fluid, enjoyable gameplay. When combined with Fixed Rate Link and Display Stream Compression, it delivers high-resolution gaming.
