Previously there were reports that Resident Evil 7 on the PlayStation 4 Pro will support HDR and 4K. Now, it turns out Xbox One S players will be enjoying the HDR feature way earlier than the PS4 players. Microsoft seems to be hitting all the right notes this year. They announced the Xbox One Slim this year followed by the upcoming Scorpio. On the other hand, Sony is trying to catch-up and messing up real bad. Resident Evil 7 Xbox One Slim will support HDR. So, owners of the new console can experience the terror right away in full HD.
Resident Evil 7 Xbox One Slim Will Support HDR
So now you can walk through the woods and haunted mansion in glorious HD and upscaled graphics. High-dynamic-range rendering (HDRR or HDR rendering), also known as high-dynamic-range lighting, is the rendering of computer graphics scenes by using lighting calculations done in high dynamic range (HDR). This allows preservation of details that may be lost due to limiting contrast ratios. Video games and computer-generated movies and special effects benefit from this as it creates more realistic scenes than with the more simplistic lighting models used.
Graphics processor company Nvidia summarizes the motivation for HDR in three points: bright things can be really bright, dark things can be really dark, and details can be seen in both.
Previously, this was considered a luxury for PC owners only. Now it’s a luxury for Xbox One Slim and PC owners at the moment as we still wait for the PlayStation 4 to release. On the other hand, PlayStation 4 Slim doesn’t offer HDR or even 4K Blu-Ray to their audience. It appears Sony has lost the plot currently. Or they could be gambling on other features. But at the moment it appears Xbox owners will be getting the most benefits in the short run and even the long run when the Xbox One Scorpio releases.
