Software wont fix that.

That is correct, as stated by the TFTCentral review, some transitions are very slow and will cause smearing on dark colors.



All mentioned issues are hardware based limitations of the VA technology; the Windows driver will only add a color profile.

It's a damn shame. This monitor is so awesome otherwise. I hate that we have to settle at this price point lol. And I'm not waiting till Q1 2018.

I work in the software industry and can tell you that your perception of what constitutes hardware vs software problems is not accurate.

Display drives would not affect issues such as what everybody is complaining about.

I was referring to the display driver AND an NVIDIA driver making a difference. Not just the display driver.

Either way, I really hope HP works with Nvidia to fix the flickeringband HOPEFULLY HP can fix the 5 UFO ghosting issue. Despite not being 8bit FRC, the VA panel does have certain advantages over IPS. It could still be made into a much better product with ample support.

I'm guessing the 10 they have left were all returns...

That decreases response time thereby increasing blur, which might "mask" the flickering. Still not a fix, as you would NEVER want to run your games at that high of a response time. I tried it, the smearing during fast movement was intolerable.

Furthermore, it still doesn't actually fix the flickering. Flickering happened even when I had response time set to max.
