The most optimal viewing experience


Some games are intentionally brighter and more saturated than movie content. THX Game Mode ensures picture settings are carefully adjusted to deliver vibrant colors.


TVs with THX Game Mode are required to have a refresh rate of 120 Hz or higher. More frames per second means motion will look smoother without blur.


THX TVs have low latency to ensure the image and controllers are in sync, so players can see and react to action instantly with minimal lag. THX Game Mode ensures this immediacy and switches off any unnecessary video processing.


THX Game Mode ensures low dark-to-light rise time transitions, which determines how fast the display can change from dim to bright so that nothing is missed in fast-paced gameplay.


Judder and smear reduction keep the picture crisp, while black frame insertion or backlight scanning can improve the look of moving objects.


THX TVs will automatically switch to THX Game Mode with compatible consoles and PCs.
