It is a useless feature to gamers. NV probably put that in for the Pro Graphic workastation cards. Besides even when the game devs pop HDR into a game and decide to use these so called "hacks and difficult workarounds" it will still run twice as fast on an X800 as compared to any NV40.

Actually Radeon cards can only do 'Low Dynamic Range'

The R420's cannot run HDR twice as fast as the NV40, that is competley made up.
