Samsung has announced that its new 2022 lineup of QLED TVs (Q70 and above) and gaming monitors will be the first to support the HDR10+ Gaming standard, an expanded games-focused version of HDR10 that can also calibrate automatically.
Samsung partnered with Saber Interactive to bring support for HDR10+ to Redout 2 and Pinball FX, which will both be showcased at CES 2022. and Game Mechanic Studios will have its HDR10+ gaming title Happy Trails and the Kidnapped Princess on the floor.
Samsung is promoting games in contrast to major games available on the competing standard: Dolby Vision gaming — including Halo Infinite, Gears 5, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The Xbox Series X and S already support at least ten games on Dolby Vision.
Samsung’s 2022 TV and gaming monitor lineup will support the HDR10+ GAMING standard by allowing automated HDR calibration that provides stunning picture quality to meet game developers’ demands. This translates into one of the most responsive and accurate gaming experiences available to date.
Director of Product Management at NVIDIA, Vijay Sharma said “NVIDIA GeForce gamers can enjoy a brighter, more vivid and consistent HDR gaming experience on their monitors or TVs from the support of the new HDR10+ GAMING standard.”
The 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.
