Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos Confirmed for Xbox Series X/S

Dolby have recently announced that the Xbox Series X and Series S will support Dolby Atmos games at launch and Dolby Vision games later in 2021. This will be the first time a generation of consoles have supported the standards in-game. Dolby Vision creates the best HDR experience with a compatible screen as it offers per scene metadata adjustments and 12-bit color depth. Dolby Vision is already available through Netflix on Xbox One but this will be the first time both technologies are offered for console games. Dolby Atmos support will be included at launch, however, a 15 USD license fee will be required if you don't own Atmos speakers.

And LG has 10-bit oled panels that with each gen have its max brightness lowered even further.

Nobody's perfect.

Issue with Samsung is their prices, LCD's shouldn't cost as much as OLEDs, the technology is inferior, they bleed light, while bright contrast is garbage due to no true blacks.
But yeah no body's perfect, LG still doesn't offer any warranty against burn in, brightness is more due to panel variation, at 100% they are all the same, besides that Panasonic OLED.

LCD is ancient garbage technology.

But I love how Samsung fool the plebs with the whole QLED thing though, and the sky-high prices for cheap old tech is the icing on the cake. Do you know that there are actually people who think that QLED TVs are not LCD! lololol

The prices aren't much different for QLED. OLED is still more expensive but not even that expensive anymore.

I own the LG CX. Let me reassure you, that thing is plenty bright. Unless you plan on watching it at the beach or something.

It's not just Samsung. Sony's and LG's top LCDs also cost almost as much as their cheaper OLEDs, while offering a whopping... wait for it... 32 dimming zones!

That said, I also stumbled upon this: www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-09-11-microsoft-confirms-xbox-series-s-wont-support-xbox-one-x-backward-compatibility-enhancements
Which makes me wonder: does the series s have the HP to do HDR or doesn't it?

It's not a problem anymore. Hasn't been for at least a few years now.

It's a problem of OLED technology, that being said LG continue to make the panel more resistant, and TV manufacturers put in place system to avoid this, finally if you watch different content burn in shouldn't be a problem as checked by Rtings and HDTVtest.
