On Wednesday, Microsoft announced it is automatically adding HDR support to over 1,000 PC games. The software maker has also begun testing a new Auto HDR feature on Windows 10. Enabling Auto HDR will add high dynamic range (HDR) to many DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 games as long as the monitor being used is HDR compatible.
The latest Windows 10 version also includes several other features. Improvements are expected to be made to virtual desktops. There will also be an update of the software’s file explorer layout system. Changes are also expected to be made to built-in apps as well.
Hannah Fisher currently serves as a DirectX program manager for Microsoft. “While some game studios develop for HDR gaming PCs by mastering their game natively for HDR, Auto HDR for PC will take DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 SDR-only games and intelligently expand the color/brightness range up to HDR,” she said. “It’s a seamless platform feature that will give you an amazing new gaming experience that takes full advantage of your HDR monitor’s capabilities.”
