NVIDIA full dynamic range
« on: July 23, 2020, 07:29:44 AM »
Did you know that NVIDIA by default gives you a limited dynamic range over HDMI, using brightness levels 16 to 235 instead of 0 to 255? You can enable full dynamic range in your driver settings, under Display/Change Resolution -> Use NVIDIA colour settings -> Output dynamic range = Full.

Also applies to AMD cards, apparently.
