I am wondering about the improvement for stereo audio.
Looks pretty interesting. Was there any bug with the stereo audio before?

I am oh so very curious about what this does regarding the following issues:

1. 1080p 60 FPS had reduced shadow quality
2. 1080p 60 FPS had some framerate drops in certain sections of the game
3. Anti-aliasing solution was sub-par (post-process only)

The night section when you are over the wall has always appeared super dark to me. I wonder how that looks in HDR.

Re downloading. To test out my Sony HDR TV.

Sure does seem like the new tomb raider has HDR. If not the lighting is spectacular without it!

I have an 8 bit+FRC TV that supports an HDR signal.

Just turned it on and the title screen window looks immediately different. Like it's more gray than yellow now. Not sure if it's just the different color setting I have with my TV now, need to check...

So when you start at the title screen, it recognizes that you have a HDR TV, then it says,

"HDR will be turned on to display HDR-optimized video. The following restrictions apply:

  • The colors in video clips, broadcasts, and other video might appear differently than expected
  • The gameplay recording and broadcasting features might be unavailable

From what I've read the Pro Mode is Native 4K at 30fps, uses HDR, and has the shadows from the 1080/30 mode on the base PS4. Not sure if there is a second Pro Mode that has upgraded shadows, HDR, 60fps, but at checkerboard 4K.

Native 4K at 30fps. They haven't said much about the 60fps option other than it running more smoothly.

People trying this out.
1.Make sure you have the latest HDMI cables
2. Some tvs HDMI inputs must be changed to enhanced. My Sony was set to standard by default
3. If your hdmi cables run through a receiver it also must be HDR compatible. Most aren't.

I literally went right back to change it as I had a brain fart and of course you quickly quote me!

Bastardo!

So my colours seem reaallllyyy muted. Especially on the main PS4 menu but also in the game. I feel like something isn't set right.

Trying this on my 49KS8000, looks stunning :O
Really noticeable difference.
I could take some pictures with my phone but I doubt it would convey the effect as seen in person.

A quick comparison seems to suggest people are seeing 'muted' colours because the non-HDR appears more saturated. Turning on and off HDR and comparing the same scene the HDR version is much much better and more realistic. I can't really go back to the non-HDR version now it looks 'cartoony' to me, as in over saturated like you might see on TVs displayed in a store with bright lighting.

It's not that the HDR version is 'muted' as such but the colours weren't supposed to appear so vibrant in the first place and now there's more information there they can cover a much larger range.

However that's assuming everyone's settings and everything is working properly. It may also be there's some bug or something I'm not seeing.

If you hit the PS button and go back to the XMB does it also appear really dim/muted?

1800p is 2.78x the resolution of 1080p, so using a GPU that's ~2.4x as capable of one pushing 1080p/60 isn't likely to make this a realistic goal for many titles.
I assume he means checkerboard 1800p like several games are doing.

On a scale of 1 - 5 for HDR impact, with 1 being Deus Ex and 5 being Forza Horizon 3, I'd rate this as a 1.5

Besides the fact this is a fairly old remaster of a PS3 game, the muted color palettes don't do much for its capacity to impress with HDR. Scenes are generally muted and the noise and shimmering on the character textures stick out like a sore thumb. Again, it's fine for such an old game, but I'm still waiting to see HDR pop on a PlayStation console.

65" KS8000 in case you were wondering.

Interesting question, turning on and off HDR in game and then going to the XMB appears the same for me. I can't see any difference in that menu no matter the in game HDR setting.

What color space setting do you use on your KS8000? It should be "Auto" to avoid over-saturating colors used in the Rec.709 color space normally used for 1080p content. All HDR content will automatically use the native color space regardless of the setting, if I remember correctly since HDR output is presumed to be using the Rec.2020 color space.

The colors are more subdued.
Stupid question maybe, but does your set require you to activate a specific setting for HDR, or is it truly automatic? The LG sets anyway require you to turn on Ultra HD Deep Color, or HDR doesn't function at all, even if the set detects it.

Same with my Samsung. You need to set UHD Colour to "on" for each HDMI input you want to use. Otherwise the game doesn't pick it up

Wish the screen didn't dim in the pause menu then cut to black when switching between HDR and SDR so I could tell the difference more. TV saying I'm getting an HDR signal but it's hard to tell, especially since I haven't done played this game in forever.

I have an LG set. I turned on the Deep Color, and when it derects HDR it automatically goes into the HDR Bright mode.

On my Sony, doing this results in the XMB being washed out, and I can confirm HDR signal is still enabled. when checking display settings.

How do I know if HDR is displaying on my ks8000?


Edit: ok figured it out. My PS4 doesn't need to be plugged into a specific hdmi port correct?

Agreed. I think the 4K Pro patch should do wonders to tighten up the jaggies and moire and really work to clean up the overall presentation.

I do think that native 4K + HDR will look really nice.
