Question Does Anyone Here Play PC Games With LED and/or OLED TV? Which Color Settings Do You Use?

Do you notice a big difference on YCbCr 4:2:2 / 12 bit vs YCbCr 4:4:4/ 12 bit for PC gaming? Or you hardly notice a difference?

Do you also notice a big difference with RGB 4:4:4 8 bit vs RGB 4:4:4 10/12BIT?

I currently use the Hisense H9G 55 inch 4k TV with my Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800XT GAMING OC. It is not capable for 4:4:4 at 10/12 bit. I use YCbCr 4:2:2 12 bit because it looks more vivid/popping and colorful compared to other settings but I didn't exactly test it vs YCbCr 4:4:4 8 bit yet.

When using my computer for browsing the net/not in game I have it on 8bpc RGB 4:4:$, YCbCr 4:4:4 doesn't look color accurate for normal usage. I have not watched any movies or tv shows on my computer that I built in January 2022 so I don't know exactly what I would like for that yet.

I use RGB 4:4:4 10-bit with the Warm1 setting on the TV. I have a profile with OLED Light 0 for the desktop, and gaming/movie profiles with 50 and 100. I never saw any difference between RGB and YCbCr as long as they are both full chroma, or between 8 and 10 bit except in HDR games. I also use a software color calibrator tool (Monitor Calibration Wizard) on the desktop.

The Hisense 65SX has a 12-bit display panel, it's the first tv to have it. They didn't bring it to the US though.
Damn it's not even 4 years I got my OLED. I was expecting to get at least 10 years out of it. Time to upgrade! :disappointed:

Though it's 12-bit+FRC and not true 12-bit. Maybe I can wait :)

LOL!! Yeah, there's no rush. I'm waiting to see what QD-OLED brings to the table.

There are a few that do 12 bit, like the LG OLEDs from this year and 2019. It doesn't really make any difference in practice though.

You're right, my bad, they accept a 12-bit input but the panels themselves are actually 10-bit. So it makes no difference at all. The 2020 and 2021 models only take 10-bit inputs.
