Hey Guys! - Creating this thread to serve as an easily indexable search engine thread; as of now it’s a huge pain to determine the state of HDR.
Rather simple question: as of October 2020, what is the state of HDR support, in all of its flavours, on various distributions and on various hardware?
I’ll be updating this thread to included information from the comments below. If the configuration is not mentioned- it’s either not supported or support is unknown. I’m hopping to keep this updated as more information comes in.
in terms of other information, all 3 manufacturers have discussed HDR support to a certain extent.
Kernel 5.3 added HDR metadata to the amdgpu driver
Kernel 5.12 implemented near complete support for intel Gen9 HDR, but testing will have to be done once the 5.12 cycle completes
Nvidia seems to have some OS level support on kernel 5.8+ on their jetson series of SOM’s and SOC’s, but this has yet to be confirmed
