Why is my display darker when I use YUV color format at 144hz?
SDR games in the YUV color format at 144 Hz appear darker than those in the sRGB color format. This is a result of the difference between the gamma standards for sRGB and YUV.
We are adding an enhancement to our firmware that gives users the option of selecting either the sRGB gamma or the YUV gamma when using YUV color format.
