Windows 11 will have Auto HDR and DirectStorage, but it is exclusive to this operating system

    Which PCI-E 4.0 ASUS motherboards doesn't have BAR support? My ASUS X570 board supports it just fine.

    The idea is avoiding to mess around besides that it does work with all HDR monitors.
    Which user calibrates a monitor and then messes around with the settings every time game X, Y and Z is launched to get a fake a HDR effect and sets it back afterwards?

    ^Set it back? If you think non-oled HDR exists? You are falling for marketing gimmicks. I would argue that srgb with a high contrast ratio produces almost exactly the same image as fake hdr.

    Turn digital vibrance up a bit, contrast up 2-3 percent, brightness down 2-3 percent and enable srgb mode on your monitor if you have it. You dont have to set anything "back."

    Fake HDR exists. It is theoretically fake without contrast zones. The standard is ****ed thats the only reason we are in this position.

    SDR content looks crap when you adjust a monitor be like HDR, why I said "set it back", since I do not want everything to be as overly bright and colorless as Windows makes it, for that I prefer it adjust to calibration values with a tad more saturation (vibrance) which basically is what you mean.
    That has nothing todo with HDR, does not even get the look of it, the percentages also differ from display to display, on my end it is contrast down to 48 and brightness down to 43 with a custom SRGB profile.

    Hence why Auto HDR isn't a bad thing if it is done right, if we look at PC games Destiny 2 and No Mans Sky already has the ability to switch between SDR and HDR, on consoles that has been done for years.
    Although I think NMS looses way to much color with it on the PC.

    QLED didn't really help either unless Samsung really improved it with their recent monitors.

    I think we are on the same page though, since so far I prefer to run PC games in SDR.

    Mate, gotta ask, are the dev builds stable enough for work? I'm working from home with adobe apps and other programs. I'm usually in the slow right(beta) but I'm thinking about moving into the Dev channel for the 11.

    DirectStorage is not locked to Windows 11.

    What about the GPU though?

    Doubt it works on a 1070 for example.

    The requirements given by microsoft for DS say it needs a GPU with support for at least shader model 6. So Pascal qualifies. Maxwell 2 also qualifies. If that's true, the question then is if a slower GPU can bottleneck the whole process :p

    The question is if IHV will update their GPU drivers to support it :)

    So for example an RX 470 would suffice if paired with an nvme ssd?

    Polaris does support sm6 so it should work.

    Awesome~ now I just need to buy an nvme ssd, much easier to do compared to buying a new medium range video card at medium range video card prices haha xD

    I still have some questions tho.

    What size nvme drives are actually recommended for direct storage to work, any size?

    How doea auto hdr works if one have crappy hdr monitor?
