AMD has also added support for HDR (high dynamic range) gaming based on DolbyVision and HDR 10 standards. That's an important advancement, as the latest consoles like Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 Pro add support for HDR for better color and images in games.
The chipmaker is also laying the groundwork for AMD GPUs to support 8K gaming. The company announced GPU support for DisplayPort HBR3, which allows gaming on 4K monitors at over 120Hz, 5K at 60Hz, and 8K at 30Hz. Those 8K monitors aren't available yet, and gaming on a display at 30Hz won't be ideal because of poor refresh rates. But AMD is getting ready for the transition from 4K to 8K, which could start happening in 2020.
