It's CES time, which means plenty of TV news abounds. Samsung has announced that certain of its 4K and 8K TVs (and gaming monitors) will support its new gaming standard, HDR10+ GAMING.

HDR10+ GAMING is essentially a gaming mode that doesn't require any manual calibration from the user. That means the game engine automatically optimises video game content in real-timer, ensuring you squeeze the best possible gaming performance from the TV without fiddling around with menus.

Expect plenty of dark detail without sacrificing the brightest highlights, so you can see – and react to – every element on screen. It also configures the display to a "true reference mode", which results in truer colours.

Gaming companies including Saber Interactive and Game Mechanic Studios will show off their HDR10+ GAMING titles at CES.

HDR10+ launched four years ago as a rival to Dolby Vision. Like its rival, it uses dynamic metadata to optimise scenes on a frame-by-frame basis, so the full colour range can be deployed even in scenes that contain only dark or only light elements. The result? Subtler gradients and hence more detail.

HDR10+ GAMING will feature in Samsung's 2022 Neo QLED line-up with the Q70 TV series and above and its new gaming monitors. Nvidia's new graphics cards for 2022 will also support the feature.
