HDR done right on the PC, but at a price

Jeremy laird

THE ARRIVAL OF HDR (high dynamic range) image rendering on the PC hasn’t exactly been a slam-dunk success. Take support for HDR within the Windows OS itself. Let’s be generous and call it patchy. Ironically, the very notion of what it means to be an HDR display has also been murky, thanks to numerous conflicting standards.

The result has been a bit of a blowout. Can you even be sure what you’re seeing is truly HDR? Often, it’s been far from obvious. But not with Acer’s awesome new Predator X27. When this new 27-inch monitor has its afterburners lit up in HDR mode, there’s no doubt you’re looking at something new, something special. This is HDR done right on the PC.
