Netflix is adding High Dynamic Range (HDR) support to both its Windows 10 app and the Microsoft Edge browser. Netflix’s hardware requirements for HDR on PC mean you’ll need Intel’s 7th-generation or higher processors to support the HDR10 encoded content, and Intel’s integrated GPU or an Nvidia 1050 or higher. AMD GPUs or even CPUs are currently unsupported.
Netflix’s support of HDR on the PC side is a boost to the content available to Windows 10 users, arriving shortly after iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 support. There’s a lack of games that support HDR on PC, and gaming monitors that even enable HDR content to be displayed. Dell only announced its first HDR monitor earlier this year, and LG will be showing its new HDR monitor at CES early next month. We’re hoping we’ll see a number of new HDR monitors at CES and throughout 2018.
