HDR is a cutting-edge display standard which will drastically increase the graphics quality of video games and other media.

The standard is only supported by certain displays and graphics cards however, and it is important to ensure your graphics card is HDR compatible before purchasing an HDR display.

There are no HDR monitors available yet, meaning that currently the only option is to purchase a TV for HDR gaming.

    “…it is important to ensure your graphics card is HDR compatible before purchasing an HDR display”

    Doesn’t sound that way from the article? It seems like the only HDR displays around at the moment are TVs anyway.

    HDR is a display standard calling for an increased brightness (very simply put) that enables much greater contrast and dynamic range to be possible on screen. Ideally you’d want 10 000 nits of brightness.
    However current TV’s which are true HDR compliant only goes up to 1000 for now – the Samsung KS series.
    LG OLED is a different beast since the tech is different.

    Your card may support it but if your TV doesn’t have it you cant use it. Correct me if im wrong. My 32″ Sanyo doesn’t have HDR so my GTX 1060 wouldn’t really benefit or use it. Newer LED and LCD TVs have it.
