High Dynamic Range, commonly called HDR, is an incredible new tech that improves on-screen imagery by leveraging three critical components: brightness, color, and contrast. NVIDIA is proud to be at the forefront of this revolutionary experience. There are already G-SYNC HDR monitors available for purchase, such as the recently released 27-inch versions from ASUS and Acer. With a wealth of manufacturing partners, other G-SYNC HDR displays will be available soon. Thanks to game developer support, there are also plenty of HDR-compatible titles to get your hands-on, and you'll have more and more to play in the future.

When you fire up an NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR monitor, you'll be treated to awe-inspiring light sources, blacks as deep as midnight, silky smooth transitions between lighter and darker areas, and a deep, saturated color pallet. The visuals are further boosted by a dizzying combination of available colors, with the DCI-P3 cinema standard-the same color-space you'd see in a digitally projected movie.

In addition to these next-gen monitors' 4K resolutions, vibrant and bold colors, 1,000 nits of peak brightness, sky-high contrast, 120Hz refresh rates (and refresh rate overclocks of up to 144Hz), they also employ NVIDIA's celebrated G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. That means zero screen tearing, reduced stuttering, and almost no input lag. NVIDIA G-SYNC also wields variable overdrive, which effectively removes ghosting artifacts without impacting the monitors' performance.

Furthermore, the 27" G-SYNC HDR displays were created in conjunction with AU Optronics, and they include 384 individually controllable backlit LED zones, as well as an applied Quantum Dot Enhancement Film, which improves reds, greens, and blues. In the quality control department, NVIDIA has your back-each G-SYNC monitor undergoes an intensive certification process in areas including refresh rates, flicker, color, and overall performance. Adding to all that, every G-SYNC HDR panel supports HDR10: the HDR format for PC gaming.

Of course, all of this wonderful tech and jaw-dropping imagery is difficult to replicate with mere words and screenshots. The most accurate HDR comparison is to simply take a stroll outside and look at all the scenery in its natural beauty; you need to experience HDR in-person to truly wrap your head around its brilliance. Fortunately, that's easy enough to do, thanks to the assorted list of HDR-compatible titles. There are a lot of standout selections to play right now, and the library is constantly growing. You can jump into Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition, Square Enix's latest hit in the storied RPG franchise, take part in nerve-rattling historical combat in Call of Duty: WWII, or conquer and then recruit vicious Orcs in Middle-earth: Shadow of War. There are many previously released games that support HDR too, such as the enormously popular Destiny 2, Assassin's Creed Origins, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Halo Wars 2, Shadow Warrior 2, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and others.

With 4K native resolution, real-life colors, high brightness, and razor-sharp contrast saddled up next to G-SYNC's zero screen tearing, speedy refresh rates, and variable overdrive, you'll be enveloped in the definitive experience in PC gaming visuals. With an ever-expanding library of HDR-supported games, there's a plethora of titles to keep your eyes glued to the screen. Go here for more on G-SYNC HDR monitors.
