Xbox Series X Color Depth 8bit 10bit or 12bit Settings on LG OLED CX TV Explained

Xbox Series X Color Depth 8bit 10bit or 12bit Settings on LG OLED CX Explained. This video explains: What is 8bit 10bit and 12bit and how it works on the TV and where should I keep the bits setting on the TV.
I used LG OLED TV to explain this because LG has one of the best output instructions for the screen menu.

    I’m getting some random vertical pixelated lines on my picture. What could be the cause of this?

  2. Les Lane on December 31, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    …It’s a 10 bit panel…

  3. Jokerz Grinn on December 31, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    I have a acer 4k "hdr" monitor 300 nits, I’m guessing theres no reason to ever turn on hdr? I’ve been messing around with setting but games look worse with "hdr".

  4. Mickaël on December 31, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Hello, on my oled 4k with my x box series x advise you to set the color space to 8 bit, 10 bit, or 12 bit?

  5. Whereawillisisabruce on December 31, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Just theoretically futuristically speaking, how much Gbps would be required for 4K 120 Hz RGB 12bit 4:4:4 if the TV’s are going to be 12 bit at some point? If I get it right lol.

  6. jamaican kid19 on December 31, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Can the Xbox series x on the LG C9 do 12-bit @120hz ?

  7. jdubdoubleu on December 31, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    How do I get that "freesync information" on screen with oled C9?

    I have 2 questions i hope someone can help with.

    The first question is more a confirmation.
    I bought the new LG NanoCell 85 series 65in. For my xbox series x, do i want to use 8bit, 10bit, or 12bit? 10bit would be best correct?

    My second question is, my new TV has "AMD FreeSync Premium". Should i turn this option on? If so, whats the best setting? High or wide?

    Thanks everyone. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

  10. Boomer Cosmo on December 31, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    What if you tested this on the C9? Would it change the results?

  11. Dwayne Phillips on December 31, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    Yeah but without the 48gb bandwidth you can’t gett full 12bit color.

  12. Simon Messina on December 31, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    Don’t tick 4:2:2 and leave it to 8bit when hdr is played it will automatically change to 10bit. When sdr is played it will stay locked to 8bit. Just leave it alone or you will wash colours in sdr games

  13. Eli Chun on December 31, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    I have a q60 samsung tv 43 inch and I can’t get the image right

  14. Xrm550 on December 31, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    High contrast mode on the Xbox with an oled is just plain stupid. If you don’t know why… really need to do some homework!

    Your freesync information on the LG CX is pre, not post.

  15. SA1NT GAMING on December 31, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    I have a Samsung 50” 7 series RU7100 and wondering what colour depth setting I should set my series X too

    I noticed if I set it to 8 bit the game tile for assassins creed Valhalla looks pixelated on the Xbox home screen, I’ve heard that it changes to 10 bit automatically when viewing content, I’ve heard setting it to 10 bit causes unnessisary hdmi bandwidth Cos it’s converting it to 10 bit twice?, and I’ve heard 12 bit can cause chopped blacks if the panel doesn’t support it, so I’m completely lost on what to set it too

  16. Yaroslav Chernyshov on December 31, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    You proved nothing with this video. You clearly showed 12 bit could only do 4:2:0 at 4k@60 and 4k@120. No clue what the point of this video was at all, unless you tried to show LGCX bandwidth limitation. If that was the case, good job. I can display 4k@60 12 bit panel at 4:2:2 chroma on my Sony A8H which is only an HDMI 2.0 tv. Something might be wrong with your HDMI cable because C10 should be at least capable of 4k@60 with full 4:4:4. because of its 40gb/s bandwidth.

  17. Zakk Wylde on December 31, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    How are you getting RGB? I keep getting ycb 4:2:0

  18. pat sull on December 31, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Great video thanks

  19. CosmicNutcase on December 31, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    @MyGadgetsWorld I have a 2016 E6 OLED and was wondering what are the best chroma settings to use ie (4:2:2 or 4:2:0) for the PS5?

  20. david riad Mamoun on December 31, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Hdmi 2.1 on lg cx and bx been downgrade to 40gbs instead of 48gbs

  21. Šarūnas Marcinkonis on December 31, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    If i choise 12bit, my screen just goes black on xsx

  22. Mickaël on December 31, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    Advise you to put the console in 8 bit or 10 bit ?? I specify that I have a 4k 10 bit oled.

  23. Major Deadline on December 31, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    Passing threw a new demon AVR 4700 with a 12 bit Samsung q7f . I’m getting black outs during switching sources .

  24. Sébastien Bouche on December 31, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    I had problems on my XSX with my Q95T with some games when I was trying to push 4k+120hz+10bits+VRR: Black screens, crashes, etc.
    It was working fine though if one of those boxes was unticked: 120 to 60 or VRR to off or 10 bits to 8 bits.
    So I made the obvious choice: the colours depth is now 8 bits on my XSX.
    I don’t know if it’s a bug or if there’s a technical explanation for it?

  25. William Melendez on December 31, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    Thanks for the information. Very interesting. You got yourself a new subscriber. I’m a nerd and love this lol. I got to appreciate my new LG CX 65” and my series X even more 😍

  26. Jøsé Miguel on December 31, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    My C9 supports 12 bits I’m also using with PC RGB

  27. Zarek Sandstorm on December 31, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    How do you show that FreeSync Info? I pressed the green button or two dot button on my lg remote, but all it does is control my xbox home screen like a controller? Mind you I got AMD freesync off because it disables Dolby Vision.

  28. Vegeto Blackity Black on December 31, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Looks like ur menu is high contrast

  29. Dante Guerrero on December 31, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Just leave it alone. It converts automatically

  30. Duh Canadian on December 31, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Hi, I have the new Dell s2721dgf.

    Its HDR capable, but its Smart HDR.
    I can’t figure out what Smart HDR is or what it’s comparable to. Like HDR400 or HDR10? I have options like game HDR but I’m not sure if that’s any good? When I turn on HDR it turns on Auto HDR and HDR10 but in the 4k details it says my monitor isn’t capable of HDR10?
    It can do 10 bit and 12 bit color depth and 100% PC RGB. It also has VRR and Freesync Premium Pro.

    Right now I have it on Native 1440p at 120hz with HDR off and 8 bit color with PC RGB color selected, with VRR and Freesync PP enabled on the Faster setting.

    I’m assuming right now I’m using the most optimal settings for framerate but will it really hurt my gameplay if I turn on the HDR and change the color depth to 10 bit? I’m using a Series X.

  31. Simon Messina on December 31, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Great video on hdr 60hz 4:2:2 selected if you put it on 8bit does it default to 10bit at 60hz with 2.1hdmi cable but tv is 2.0input as you didn’t show that?

  32. Roland Rohde on December 31, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    This is an interesting topic right now, because all the available (and many of the upcoming) AV Receivers that support HDMI 2.1 have that Panasonic Chipset mismatch issue right now.
    It happens on Nvidia cards and Xbox, but not PS5. Now, the question is, whether Microsoft could simply offer a "workaround option" for now that allows us to limit the Series S and X Output to 32Gbit/s like the PS5 currently is, thus enabling AVR users to enjoy 4K120HDR (albeit in 4:2:2)…🤔

  33. Victor Thellier on December 31, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Hello. Help me please lol, im french, i dont understand good english.
    I have an lg b7v (2017) compatible 10 bit: i can use 10 bit or i need to use 8 bit? better to use standard mode or pc rgb mode? and last question i desable or enable the ycc 422? thank you so much.

  34. Paul Fredrick on December 31, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    If you set it to 10-bit and then play a Xbox game that doesn’t have HDR which would be 8-bit does it automatically switch to 8-bit colour?

  35. ahh Luv on December 31, 2020 at 11:13 pm

    I have a 1080p asus monitor that can support up to 165hz what color debt should I keep it at? I also have a Xbox series x

  36. Rami Hanna on December 31, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    DONT LEAVE IT AT 8 BIT! This guy is giving you bad info! I was playing call of duty cold war at 60 hz with ray tracing at 8 bit which is what the xbox defaulted at. the the image was stuttering and at key moments you could tell there were huge drops in frame rate. I changed it to 12 bit and then it became buttery smooth. I have no idea why that would help frame rate. i know it is counterintuitive but it is absolutely true. Maybe it’s an xbox bug, but if your tv works at 12 bit, you should put it there. Test it for yourself.

  37. curtismaximus123 on December 31, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    I think the issue is the c9 is capped at 48gbs and LG downgraded the c10 to a max of 40 gbs to cut costs. I still thing the c10 is the best 2020 HDTV for gaming. If you want true 4K 120 at 12 bit you need to find a c9

  38. ShooterBtv on December 31, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    What would you recommend for Sony 900e owners? I’m running 1080p 120hz, which in this mode, hdr isn’t supported. Please help! Thanks

  39. ClosestNearUtopia on December 31, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    thank you for bringing up this anti hate stuff. I have to say LG isnt my avoryte brand either but this tv keeps me busy for almost 2 weeks now on youtube. Its a real beast. Just like the x800 but with VRR, so interesting, especially after the updat( maybe just beta?) from a fewdays back. Looks awesome escpecially borderlands ( or very coourfull games) looks rediculously better on oled.. daammnn…

  40. Adam Manning on December 31, 2020 at 11:19 pm

    btw tne LG C9 is a 12bit panel as it is 48Gbps in hdmi 2.1 on 2 inputs.

  41. Timskee on December 31, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    Thanks im switching mine

  42. John Mears on December 31, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    Can you post about color space on Series X? Limited vs Full Range RGB, which you prefer and why. Thanks.

  43. Rafael Jandres on December 31, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    It says your colour space is standard, but the information says RGB. I don’t get it.

  44. Patrick Perron on December 31, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    Amazing content, nice and unbiased. Thanks, get a like out of me.

  45. Morph X G on December 31, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    The CX is limited to 40gbps, putting it in 12 bit will lower the chroma subs ambling to 4.2.0, 10 bit will give you RGB 4.4.4 which is what you want, now put your oled into PC mode to take advantage of it.

  46. Sumit Patel on December 31, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    We would really appreciate a same video for PS5 aswell.. with lg cx and samsung tv..
    People are really confused out there..

  47. Jacob R on December 31, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    How did you get the blue coloured borders around everything?

  48. Marc Favell on December 31, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    12-bit is pointless considering there’s no 12-bit panels in existence except for maybe prototype even professional monitors late Sony that cost $30,000 for a 32-in grading monitor not not have a 12 bit panels so it’s pointless as well 40Gbps HDMI 2.1 is more than enough for any 10-bit panel …..again I repeat no there is no 12-bit panel made by any consumer or professional display at the moment in the future when 12 minutes is available the only source will be Dolby vision what is mastered in a rec.2020 container with 12 bit color and can only display at the moment a little over a billion colors in 10 bit on a 10bit panel. When 12 bit panels are available we will need the 48Gbps hdmi 2,1 bandwidth but again right now it’s pointless.
    10-bit can display a little over a billion colors at the moment on a 10-bit panel TVs in the future with 12 bit panel will be able to display 64 billion colors and have a lot more nits enable to display that many colors probably looking around 2024-2026 for 12 bit panels to be mainstream TBH if we see some this year at the CES then it will possibly be a bit sooner date vs 2026.

  49. Darknessrider on December 31, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    I have seen people recommending PC mode to get full 4:4:4 HDR color. What are your thoughts on this?
