Lies. Try this, so you can see for yourself. Go to lagom.nl and open the pave showing the black levels. Now try altering the gamma and contrast/brightness from the Nvidia Control Panel. Why doing that? Users owning the S2716DG or the Omen27 (both using the same AUO display) can achieve almost 1:1 fidelity and 2.2 gamma with these settings: - Brightness 40-45% - Contrast 55-60% - Gamma +0.80 to +0.85 Once you've done that take a look at the black levels. Most of them would be wiped out by black crush. Take a look at the darkest one you can see. It will be your card RGB(1,1,1) instead of a dithered (0.5,0.5,0.5). Moreover, the color sequence visible in the same webpage would go from 1,2,3,4,... to something like 0,0,0,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,4,4,4,... - clearly approximated by integers and not dithered. This is my issue, as of now. I am aware Nvidia dithers fullscreen DX11 on GTX1080. But dithering in the main Windows environment is available only on Quadro cards, I imagine. Well - try this and see what I mean. It would be funny of after all this bashing we find out we agreed on the same thing since the very beginning.
