Xbox Series X and S to support Dolby Vision HDR
Dolby has announced that the Xbox Series S and Series X will be the first consoles to support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision HDR. And the three-dimensional sound of Dolby Atmos will be available at the time of launching the consoles, and the advanced HDR mode should appear in 2021.
With Dolby Vision, the company promises 40 times brighter backlighting, 10 times deeper black, and up to 12 bits of color depth. However, the result may vary greatly depending on your TV or monitor, as most displays only support 10-bit color depth.
Although the Xbox One X technically supports Dolby Vision, this feature has not left the Microsoft insider testing phase. Now, using Dolby Vision HDR, you can play several games on your PC: for example, Battlefield 1.
The PS5 is also expected to offer only standard HDR10 support, as Sony has taken a hard line on the Samsung HDR10 + format: Sony President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Fasulo told TechRadar that the company prioritizes other technologies. Dolby Atmos will also not be supported on the future console.
