HDR10+ GAMING supports an optimised experience that eliminates the hassle of adjusting numerous manual settings. It also enables enhanced gameplay with near-instant responses through low latency and variable refresh rate support. Additionally, the standard provides developers with tools that allow consistent and reliable HDR gaming experiences across all HDR10+ GAMING displays.
The First Descendant is "set to provide gamers with one of the most responsive, accurate and frictionless HDR gaming experiences to date", the company said. This partnership with Nexon reinforces the South Korean firm’s unwavering commitment to providing superior visual experiences that go beyond entertainment and media consumption.
