Nvidia clarifies its updates to G-Sync Ultimate - Was it really downgraded?

The change was necessary to cover OLED screens and to add lower-cost G-Sync Ultimate screens to the market.



Read more about Nvidia's comments regarding their changes to G-Sync Ultimate.

The arguments about HDR quality is pretty redundant,IMO when you consider what a steaming pile of hot garbage HDR support is, in Windows, whether on the desktop or in gaming.


Honestly, there hasn't been a single game where I've not had to turn it off because of the wildly differing standards that result in games looking horribly murky or eye destroyingly bright & over saturated.


..added to that, you can't take screenshots with HDR on, as they just look washed out with incorrect colours.

I played on 1 of those high end LG OLED's recently and I thought it was very weird that screenshotting was disabled, Very odd decision.

Has anyone here figured out how to record HDR games? I've resorted to some contrast, gamma & saturation filters to get the colours somewhat sensible, but it's such a fuss that I'm debating just disabling HDR. Similarly, when I play VR, my main monitor becomes absolutely useless, the way colours map is entirely broken. I have to restart it after finishing with VR.

I'm not sure if you've tried HDR recently. HDR games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Doom Eternal, Cyberpunk, Hellblade, Fallen Order, Borderlands 3, Battlefield 1 and 3, Forza Horizon 4 etc. look truly awesome on my Asus PG35VQ when set up correctly.

I also have HDR enabled at all times when in Windows so that other things benefit from the FALD and have had no issues with programs looking weird since Windows had its big HDR update. I purchased my monitor just after the update happened.

I've not really tried to screenshot much so I can't comment there, is there a file format that supports wide gamut?

its more to do with windows ,and the monitor you use. HDR 400 is pointless and shouldnt be allowed to be called HDR. HDR600 or HDR1000 (10) is pretty impressive. SotTR with HDR is a sight to be seen. Absolutely amazing.

Even Division 2 in HDR is good when looking at the flames and lighting.
