This brand-new feature could use a little tweaking

Nvidia announced their new Nvidia App yesterday, and many people have been impressed with what the beta already has to offer. We see it as a much-needed update to the control panel, as it combines all the settings you need with the best of GeForce Experience on top. However, there’s one missing feature that people are asking for – RTX HDR when using multiple monitors.

At the moment, RTX HDR will be disabled when using multiple monitors as discussed in this Reddit thread following the big announcement. That doesn’t just mean that RTX HDR will only work on a single monitor, it annoyingly means that you’ll need to unplug any additional monitors to use this feature. No problem if you’ve got a single sleek ultrawide, but a real annoyance for the rest of us.

Will Nvidia add RTX HDR for multiple monitors?

The good news is that you won’t have to stick to using a single monitor for too much longer as Nvidia has promised an update to add RTX HDR support when using multiple monitors. They revealed this in the official FAQs linked to the original announcement blog post. This means that if you’re rocking a dual monitor or 3 monitor setup, no need to worry about unplugging displays just to get RTX HDR working in future.

We don’t yet know when this highly-requested feature will be added – but it will be available in an ‘upcoming Game Ready Driver update’. Considering an unofficial mod available at Nexus Mods already supports this, it makes sense for Nvidia to make it snappy.

What is RTX HDR?

As you may know, HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and is something that modern games and displays take advantage of for better color accuracy and improve contrast ratio. When to comes to RTX HDR, a healthy amount of Artificial Intelligence is involved as you may expect.

With RTX HDR enabled, it brings High Dynamic Range lighting to the game to improve visuals – and this can be toggled per-game. Much like ray tracing, you’ll need an RTX graphics card (20-series upwards) to enable this feature and bring an HDR effect to content that only supports SDR to see the game in a new light. This is compatible with games running on DirectX 9, DirectX 11, DirectX 12, and Vulkan graphics APIs (that’s a lot of them).
