What is this banding effect called?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Basically, whenever there is a gradient in motion, the gradient breaks up into distinct bands.

I created and example image and moved it around. One half of the image is a horizontal gradient, the other half a vertical gradient. When moving the image from left to right, only the horizontal gradient breaks up, when moving up and down, the vertical gradient breaks up.

Here is an example of the effect:https://gfycat.com/DigitalScornfulHousefly

What is this artifact called and what kind of monitors avoid this?

This is colour banding through motion blur.

Do you have the latest GPU drivers installed?
Have you tried a different monitor output?
If yes to both questions, it's a limitation with your monitor most likely, in which case replace it.

Is this typical of monitors nowadays?

This effect has been present on a multitude of different cards.

I've been using the same monitor for like 10 years (Samsung 226BW) and am finally in the market for a new one. This color banding always bothered me and I'd like my new monitor to avoid this effect (if possible).

It's not "typical". But some Tns do that. My friend used one of those same Samsungs for 8 years, but he got one of the good ones before the infamous panel lottery. I bought the exact same model from the exact same store about 4 months later and literally brought it back the next day exactly because of that. His did not do that. Mine did it even just scrolling web pages.
