Gaming Tech 101 Episode 3: 4K and UHD

leave a comment »


Now the biggie, Ultra HD or 4K TVs. Fred gets into it all: what’s changed, what is 4K resolution, what is HDR exactly, and why should we all care.  He also adds tips to look for when buying a TV and most importantly, what the new consoles (and PCs) are doing with 4K and HDR.  Note: Already a correction.  Rise of the Tomb Raider does not currently support HDR on either Xbox One or PC, however Crystal Dynamics has claimed a patch is in the works.  As far as I can tell no games on PC support HDR at this time and NBA2K17, releasing Friday, Sept. 16th, will be the first game to support HDR on XB1 and PS4 thanks to a day one patch.  We still won’t know how true that is until it releases.
