While it included another ICC profile there are actual monitor drivers that are installed. It also now IDENTIFIES the monitor instead of it being a generic monitor.

That still does nothing to remedy the 100hz overshoot, smearing, color banding, and gsync flickering frown.gif

So you tested it fully and verified that the driver does nothing?

Idk what you mean by tested it fully... the issues with this display ar hardware, not software. frown.giffrown.giffrown.gif

Testing implies running through tests, checking to see if the problem is still there, or otherwise verifying that the driver is or is not doing anything.

I'm not seeing the same problem that you are so I'm not convinced that ALL of the issues listed are hardware-related.

I have run many tests side by side with the x34. Comparing wallpapers, games, Gsync pendulum test, etc etc. The Omen has visible color banding in the sky on the Gsync demo, the x34 does not. The Omen has visible screen flickering on the demo, the x34 does not. The Omen has color banding in dark room in games (that I have run side by side), the x34 does not.

These issues are panel related, not a driver update.

That does not mean it is hardware related. In fact, software drives a lot of what is placed on the screen. If you haven't ran tests to verify differences then you can't say a driver doesn't work. I work in the software industry and can tell you that your perception of what constitutes hardware vs software problems is not accurate.

My man, trust me I want to keep this beauty... but do a little research, read around on the forums. The issues with this panel are hardware related. The smearing and ghosting is a VA problem. That is hardware. The color banding is 8bit panel vs the x34 is 8bit+FRC.

Software wont fix that.

I understand what you are saying. I just think that, while hardware might be a part of the issue, that software and drivers will be able to correct a lot of the other issues. Color banding is literally how your computer puts the image on the screen. Algorithms are what tell the monitor how to interpret the image, and because this is a 35" screen I'm guessing that a lot of the calculations that the DRIVERS are using are sending data to the screen that it can't quite interpret yet. With a driver update (from NVIDIA and HP both) a LOT of those issues can be resolved.

I hope you're right. Unfortunately, Nvidia hasn't said ****. It's hard for me to keep this product when HP themselves said "we can't fix these issues, you should return it and buy something else".


Doesn't inspire confidence.
