Samsung is releasing its first HDR10 Gaming displays

Samsung has declared the first displays that will support the HDR10+ Gaming standard, an expanded games-focused version of HDR10 that can likewise align automatically. HDR10+ Gaming was at first reported in October, however, presently Samsung uncovers that its new 2022 lineup of QLED TVs (Q70 or more) and gaming monitors will be the first to support the norm.

Samsung’s 2022 TVs and monitors will support its recently divulged HDR10+ Gaming standard, the organization declared. That implies they’ll deliver a variety of features for gamers like variable refresh rates (VRR) at up to 120Hz and automatic HDR color correction on a game-by-game basis.

Samsung cooperated with Saber Interactive to carry support for HDR10+ to Redout 2 and Pinball FX, which will both be exhibited at CES 2022 (as long as the game developer doesn’t drop out). Additionally, Game Mechanic Studios will have its HDR10+ gaming title Happy Trails and the Kidnapped Princess on the floor.

The standard will be used by Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED lineup with the Q70 TV series or above, alongside gaming monitors, the organization said. It didn’t specify any models, however, it showed a wide-screen gaming display and what could be a 2022 Neo QLED TV with very slim bezels.

The games Samsung is promoting are rather than significant games accessible on the contending standard: Dolby Vision gaming — including Halo Infinite, Gears 5, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The Xbox Series X and S as of now support at least ten games on Dolby Vision.

HDR10+ Gaming has more visual metadata than regular HDR10 (targets four times its peak brightness), supports variable refresh rate (VRR), and auto low latency mode (ALLM) for better looking and performing game visuals. Samsung likewise says the standard will work “over 120Hz” however doesn’t meticulously describe the situation.

The competing standard, Dolby Vision gaming, is now doing all of this (save for the 120Hz in addition to guarantee). Likewise, Samsung’s adversary LG declared its C1 and G1 OLED displays with the Dolby Vision gaming standard in June of this current year.

The entire experience of HDR10+, similar to Dolby Vision, is just executable if the entire setup is upward incorporated to help the format. This implies that to experience HDR10+ Gaming, your PC will require an Nvidia graphics card (with help coming for GeForce RTX 30 Series, RTX 20 Series, and GTX 16 Series GPUs), a game that is programmed with the extra visual metadata, and one of Samsung’s new displays that can output it.

HDR10+ Gaming sneaked by the radar when it was first reported, yet it appears to be a move to counter Dolby Vision HDR for gaming found on Xbox Series X/S consoles. It gives a “consistent HDR gaming experience without the need for manual calibration across a variety of display technologies for various input sources, including consoles, PCs, and more,” Samsung said.

The thought with HDR10+ Gaming is that you won’t have to use any manual settings, as the game engine itself automatically upgrades color calibration in real-time. It’s intended to deliver subtleties in dark shadows and features while configuring the display to a “true reference mode” so colors are shown as planned by the developer. It additionally supports VRR at up to 120Hz alongside tone mapping that won’t add any additional latency to the gaming signal.

Similarly as with HDR10+, in any case, the challenge for Samsung is getting developers to adopt the norm for games. Dolby Vision gaming is now accessible or is coming to over 100 games on Xbox Series X/S, so Samsung has some catching up to do. It said that “several companies, including Saber Interactive, are expected to showcase their HDR10+ Gaming titles” at CES 2022 (assuming it happens).

Samsung could gain some headway with PC gaming, in any case, as Dolby Vision is just accessible on a handful of PC titles. To assist with making ready for HDR10+ PC games, Samsung said that NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series, RTX 20 Series, and GTX 16 Series GPUs will support HDR10+ with drivers “scheduled for release in 2022.”
