    Yay, another 6bit monitor that doesn't offer anything innovating to the market.

    You do not need more than 6-bit colors when you aren't HDR capable. The end.

    I disagree, colours are certainly more vivid on a true 8bit display.

    the hoops you have to jump through to identify which are 10bit and which are 8+FRC though.:(
     
    Silva and Undying like this.

    No visible difference in my monitor when changing between 6,8 and 10bit display output options in my radeon panel. :rolleyes:

    If you have dark coloured eyes and are blessed with good eyesight, as is a big portion of the world population, you will not care.
    If you're like me with green/blue eyes and wear glasses, FRC will strain your vision and give you headache.
    Although both your eyes and colour calibration tools are fooled by this, the fatigue I experience while in front of these kind of monitors is real.
    I also think it's a marketing BS saying the monitor is 8bit on the spec sheet when it clearly isn't. Although it can display "accurate" 8bit range colours, it's done with FRC and it's not a true 8bit panel.
    This is done to make cheaper panels, but I'd prefer to pay more and not to go blind.

    You either have an hardware/software issue, or you're blind. Even switching from FULL RGB to Limited RGB I see a massive difference.
    That said, if you're not educated on the differences you'll never spot them.
