Samsung is launching its first HDR10+ gaming display

Samsung has announced its first display that will support the HDR10+ gaming standard, an expanded game-focused version of HDR10 that can also automatically calibrate. HDR10+ gaming was initially announced in October, but now Samsung has revealed that the new 2022 lineup of QLED TVs (Q70 and up) and gaming monitors will be the first to support the standard.

Samsung partnered with Saber Interactive to bring support for HDR 10+ to Redout 2 and Pinball FX, both of which will be showcased at CES 2022 (until the game developer is out). In addition, Game Mechanic Studios' HDR10+ gaming title Happy Trails and Kidnapped Princess will be on the floor.

The games Samsung is talking about are in stark contrast to the flagship games available on the competing standard: Dolby Vision Gaming - which includes Halo Infinity, 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 also says the standard will work "over 120Hz," but doesn't go into detail.

The competing standard, Dolby Vision Gaming, is already doing it all (save for the 120Hz plus claim). Furthermore, Samsung's rival LG announced its C1 and G1 OLED displays with Dolby Vision gaming standard in June this year.

The full HDR10+ experience, like Dolby Vision, is executable only if the entire setup is vertically integrated to support the format. This means that in order to experience HDR10+ gaming, your PC will need an Nvidia graphics card (with support for GeForce RTX 30 series, RTX 20 series and GTX 16 series GPUs), a game that stores additional visual metadata. supports.
