That's because it isn't an "issue", but rather by design, according to ManuelG. It has something to do with how the new WDDM 2.0 guidelines and Gsync function, so nvidia had to create a workaround to get it to work on Windows 10 by constantly sending the signal to the monitor. Gsync technically isn't on, but the monitor doesn't know that. Nvidia is trying to find a method that will work (per-profile Gsync control or something), but it sounds more like Asus needs to update the firmware on the monitor to resolve the issue in the long run.

Following some guide I found for calibration I went with monitor settings - Brightness 21, Contrast 50, RGB 96/98/100, from nVidia control panel - Gamma 0.92 and the already mentioned digital vibrance setting. I also added the ICC profile from the ASUS website. Still colors are kind of washed out, like there is too much gray (I know TN isn't supposed to be that great but I am comparing it to another TN panel) and if I lower the the brightness more, the picture gets kind of dim.

Is there anything I am missing outside of increasing DV even more (@ 60 I am noticing reds to be too pronounced already so there is not much room for that)? It's a bit disappointing that I was unable to find settings I really like when on all my previous monitors simply playing a bit with Brightness and Contrast was giving nice results.

Sorry if my terminology is lame. This is the first monitor that I have with such issues and I've just started researching on the topic.
I would have thought having the brightness at 21 would make the colors rather dim? My colors are fine so much better than my old Asus VG278HE but I have my brightness at the default 80, tried your settings and it looks terrible just way to dim.

Try these settings and tell me: On the screen:Brightness: 40 Contrast:50 RGB: 100%
On nvidia control panel:Brightness: 40%
Contrast: 50*
Gamma: 0.80
My screen is super fine with these settings for TN.

I had to turn the gamma down in the nvidia settings as well, but it doesn't stick in certain games :/

Not having the option on the monitor is just annoying. Even my 4 year old BenQ monitor has a setting on the OSD.
post #4919 of 6154
I've always wondered, why don't manufactuers include a gamma setting?

is it to 'separate' their product lines? As in, if you want a gamma setting, pay $1,000 for the monitor and you get one? (talking about older lines here).

The PB278Q Asus monitor comes with Gamma adjustments in the OSD. Their VG248QE and VG278H and the Swift do not. Why?

Hello everyone.

I just got my ROG Swift yesterday, and in terms of performance am loving the new monitor. However the moment i received it the colours seemed a little washed out to me. So i did some searching online, and using a gamma calibration check it seems i have unusally low gamma.

I used the following test, http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/all_tests.php , and on the 4th image down "gamma calibration" my monitor shows as having a gamma of around 1.3 (when review sites have stated that the monitor comes with a healthy 2.2 standard). I have had other people view the test as well and they came up with the same low value (incase my eyes were playing tricks on me). The 1.3 value appears in the first 3 RGB columns (under 48%), whereas the 25% and 10% columns fall under the 2.2 range for me.

I was wondering if anyone else can perform the test with their Swift and see what values they come up with.

I have applied Asus' ICC profile (helped a little bit), and i have tweeked the Nvidia gamma settings (once again helped a little bit) but the value never goes above 1.4.

I rang Asus support and the guy immediately said to do a RMA but that sounded more like he had no idea what i was talking about rather than knowing it as an issue.

I realize its a TN panel, but my previous monitor was also TN and didnt have this issue.

Would appreciate if anyone can take the time to do the test and see if they are getting better or similar results.

Thankyou!
