HDR Support Notes (PC)

Exclusive fullscreen is required to use HDR on PC for both DirectX 11 and DirectX 12

Nvidia cards currently won’t switch the TV into HDR mode in DirectX 12. Please use DirectX 11 until this issue is resolved

If you encounter problems with the TV not switching into HDR mode, try disconnecting all monitors except the TV

Please note that 4K@60hz 10/12 bpc RGB is not supported by the HDMI 2.0 standard. Instead, if 4K@60hz is desired, 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 chroma subsampled output can be configured via the control panel provided by the graphics card vendor

Known Issues

Adjusting the ‘Master Volume’ option has no effect on the VO of Diana or NPCs. This will be fixed in a future update
