So, does the Qnix come with the DVI-D cable or do I have to buy one separately?
post #2433 of 25922
Dude the answer to like every single question you've asked (and there have been plenty) is in the OP. This one would be covered in the unboxing part if not elsewhere too. (Hint: YES).

And to Manju--there is an obvious difference between those three images but as we are viewing them on our displays with our color and calibrations (or lack thereof) we are not able to see exactly what you are seeing color-wise. And, as such, your default looks the best to me and has the most "pop" and the last one looks washed out and awful (though personal pref also comes into play).

And can you link me to that wallpaper? thumb.gif

I can't find the exact wallpaper sorry, but I got it from this site which has some really nice wallpapers.
http://wallpaperswide.com/

I agree with your first statement 100%, that it's hard to show via a picture why you shouldn't rely on the ICC profiles in the OP for your monitors. My point was that there is so much variation that I'd be surprised if one works as "Intended".

As for your comparison of the Calibrated and Default images, you're pretty much bang on. But the Calibrated one is neutral and is meant to look like that. It is not washed at all. The default one is so over saturated that the picture looks like a Tropical Beach, whilst the calibrated one makes it look like a Beach on an overcast day.

The default image has so much blue that it is showing in the rocks and addition to that the foliage and tress in the far background have no definition or separation at all.

Look at the water reflections too in the default image it doesn't enhance the mud at the shallow bed of the river and there is so much white that it distorts the details - reflections of the clouds and trees. etc etc etc

The best way to explain it is by looking at this video and reading through the campaign:

Anyway I'll upload my Profile and add it to this post shortly.

With my gtx 780s I can now run @139hz rock solid, but surprisingly even 1 more mhz it black screens, on my 7970s it'd go all the way top 149 on the desktop
