(Image credit- Samsung Newsroom) The first game that supports the HDR10 Plus Gaming standard is about to be released, according to Samsung, over two years after the standard's initial introduction in October 2021. Additionally, the game is Nexon's free-to-play third-person shooter The First Descendant, which will launch its open beta on September 19th. However, neither Sony nor Microsoft has made any announcements regarding support for this most recent HDR format on their platforms, we can only assume that the game will support HDR10 Plus Gaming on a PC rather than a console.

Benefits of the HDR10 Plus Gaming Standard

Nvidia declared that starting in November 2022, the RTX and 16-series graphics cards would enable HDR10 Plus Gaming on the PC. The main benefit of the HDR10 Plus Gaming standard, which is comparable to what Sony's PS5 delivers with some Sony Bravia TVs, is that it enables games to automatically calibrate their brightness and colors depending on what a connected monitor or TV can handle. Theoretically, this should lead to more accurate color reproduction and improved highlight and shadow detail. The procedure automates what is frequently a manual calibration that entails adjusting a slider so that a logo on a white or black background is hardly discernible.

HDR10 Plus Popularity

As part of its introduction, Samsung also touted the reduced latency and adaptability of HDR10 Plus Gaming to different refresh rates. To make use of the new technology, you'll also need an HDR10 Plus Gaming-compliant display and a compatible PC. While Nvidia's press release from the previous year notes that some Amazon, Panasonic, TCL, and Vizio TVs are also compatible, Samsung claims that its most recent high-end TVs and Odyssey gaming monitors already offer support. Since it was introduced a few years ago, HDR10 Plus has gained popularity as a free-and-open alternative to the Dolby Vision HDR standard. In addition to supporting dynamic metadata for more accurate colors and improved highlight and shadow detail on compatible monitors, both offer a few significant improvements over the standard HDR10 format. The Dolby Vision standard is already supported by Xbox platforms, but when HDTVTest's Vincent Teoh looked into the feature in 2021, he discovered that the benefits over HDR10 at the time were minimal.
