Samsung to launch its first displays with support for HDR10+

Samsung has something for gamers planning to step up their game in the new year! The South Korean giant has released the first Samsung-branded gaming monitors with HDR10+ Gaming standard support.

This version of the HDR10 standard focuses on gaming and can automatically adjust its settings to give the best game display for the players.

Samsung revealed the new standard two months ago, and we are now seeing the first monitor models using HDR10 Gaming. The 2022 range of QLED TVs from Q70 also benefit from the new tech.

The company has collaborated with the developer of Redout 2 and Pinball FX, Saber Interactive, to support the new standard in the two games out of the box, showing Samsung’s commitment. You will be able to see the games for yourself at the upcoming CES. Another game that will support HDR10+ is Happy Trails and the Kidnapped Princess. Apparently, more games will be showcased.

The new standard is better than the regular HDR10 in multiple ways: 400 percent more brightness, support for variable refresh rates, and automatic low latency mode. All these contribute to better graphics for the gamer.

According to Samsung, HDR10+ will work over 120 Hz.

The game engine automatically optimizes video game visuals in real-time, just like it is possible with movie and television content. This eliminates the need for manual settings when a game is loaded. It “ensures details in the dark shadows and preserves the brightest highlights so that gamers can see and react to everything on the screen. It also configures the display to “true reference mode,” providing better color, also without the need for gamers to spend additional time with game settings.”

However, as great as the new standard is, all the benefits are already offered by a competing standard, Dolby Vision, except for working over 120 Hz. Some monitors from LG already have the Dolby Vision standard. But it is still nice to see Samsung catching up.

To gain the benefits of HDR10+, the components of your gaming setup must support the format. For example, your PC must have an Nvidia graphics card, although some GeForce RTX and GTX series will be getting support for it soon. The game itself must have been coded to support the standard, and finally, a Samsung monitor that can handle the output.

Samsung says the new standard works even for gaming consoles. More than 28 manufacturers use the standard in more than 4,000 devices, including TVs, projectors, smartphones, and tablets.

 “We are extremely proud to announce that the new HDR10+ GAMING standard will be adopted by Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED line up with the Q70 TV series and above and gaming monitors, allowing users to enjoy a game-changing experience through cutting-edge visuals and richer, life-like images,” said Seokwoo Yong, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D Team, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung will continue to invest in users’ viewing experiences as technology continues to advance and provide enhanced new features and capabilities.”

According to Todd Hollenshead, Head of Publishing at Saber Interactive, “We are very excited to help usher in a new era of video game picture quality. By adopting HDR10+ GAMING, gamers of all ages will enjoy cutting-edge visuals for the best overall gaming experience. The HDR10+ GAMING standard is genuinely raising the bar, and we are proud to be at the forefront of bringing it to market with games like Redout 2, the fastest 8K anti-gravity racer ever made, and with Pinball FX, the king of digital pinball, brought to life in a brand-new way.”
