What is the HDR10+ gaming feature?

A TV or monitor may be automatically placed in a low-latency reference mode by using the automated HDR calibration feature included in the HDR10+ Gaming standard. Variable refresh rates (VRR) at 4K at 120 frames per second are also supported for incredibly clear images. These and other cutting-edge technologies make realistic and convenient gaming possible, improving overall performance and accurately reflecting the creator’s aim. More accurate game output for compatible TVs is achieved by the format’s use of HDR10+ Source Side Tone Mapping (SSTM).

Now, with the availability of plug-in cards from NVIDIA, game studios and developers can also realize the full benefits of HDR10+ gaming on certified monitors and televisions.”
