ASUS VG248QE G-Sync Upgrade improves colors, but by how much?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there! I've been meaning to join these active PC-hardware and overclocking-dedicated forums for a while now and now I finally decided to do so!

I have a calibrated SPVA LCD TV with great colors, blacks (for an LCD), etc. that I use for SP games and movies. I also bought ASUS VG248QE TN panel for MP games like BF4. It has horrid colors, which is what I expected for a TN panel. Calibrating it with a spectrometer/colorimeter improved its sRGB/Standard mode, but the LightBoost mode stayed ugly...

However, the G-Sync upgrade from nVidia replaces the monitor's PCB and the resulting colors and grayscale are of much better quality or so many people claim! I want to get that G-Sync upgrade but only if I know exactly how much better G-Sync colors are. For that - I would need someone who owns a colorimeter/spectrometer, VG248QE monitor, and has G-Sync installed to take some HCFR or ChromaPure or CalMAN or any other software measurement readings! I am primarily interested in default (NOT calibrated) grayscale white balance, gamma, luminance, colorspace, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100% saturation sweeps measurements for RGBYCM, and if possible - ColorChecker measurements. I believe the name of the mode used with G-Sync is ULBM (Ultra LightBoost Mode),

Taking all these measurements alone shouldn't take more than a few minutes of your time and would greatly benefit me and many other people who are thinking about buying this G-Sync upgrade for this monitor and maybe others too. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Do you get gradient banding with stock VG248QE?
