We've already seen various demonstrations over the past week of how the Xbox Series X excels at running backwards compatible games with faster load times, but we haven't seen much about Auto HDR.

This is a feature which applies HDR to games that never had it in the first place, increasing the luminosity in those titles even as far back as original Xbox games. And according to VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb, it's a "big benefit."

As you can see in the video above, Grubb explains that every game he tested on the system maxes out at 1,000 Nits, which is a measurement of luminance. Everything looks bright and colourful as a result, with Grubb concluding from his tests that Auto HDR is already "one of next-gen's coolest features."

We can't wait to try it out for ourselves! Geometry Wars, anyone?

What games are you excited to test this on? Let us know in the comments below.
