    Phoronix: NVIDIA Continues Prepping The Linux Desktop Stack For HDR Display Support

    Besides working on the new Unix device memory allocator project, they have also been engaged with upstream open-source Linux developers over preparing the Linux desktop for HDR display support...

    As a former 3Dfx shareholder I absolutely despise nVidia the corporate entity. They taught me you can steal all the intellectual property you want if the banksters give you the money to keep it tied up in court until your competition goes broke. Those with the best access to capital always win. It has nothing to do with being better or brighter.

    I really like my new nVidia lappy though. Best video experience I've had under Linux thus far. I'll probably buy another if AMD's "Raven Ridge" turns out to be buggy.

      Meanwhile, still no ULMB support under Linux. What's worse, nobody seems to care? :-/

        I'll hazard a guess... most have no idea of what it is.
        I had to google it too.

          FreeSync/G-Sync is all the rage these days and you can't use ULMB with G-Sync. So...

            Excellent, we need good HDR support. I hope Rec. 2020 will be supported soon.

            Unfortunately no LCD monitors are able to display HDR without cheating (local dimming, which introduces high local color variations).

                OLED can do it and, more importantly, quantum dot.

                  I just got a 10 bit 4k monitor last month so I eagerly await 10 bit color support!

                    Can you share which one? And what 10bit content do you have available?
