Yes but it does not have an impact at all (some bug issue)@lim (or anyone else) can you tell me if the 10 bit setting was available for this monitor in the AMD Radeon driver settings? I have it but I only see 8 bit max and I'm wondering if that's normal for this model.
First of all, I didn't have tested yet the Asus (:I'm trying to decide between the C32HG70 and the XG32VQ, and I'd be really glad for your help!
Which has been fixed: https://www.limscave.com/samsung-chg70I don't care much about HDR for now, but FreeSync I do want to use. In your review of the Samsung it has proven to have a horrible FreeSync implementation, however since you did the test Samsung released a lot of firmware updates for that monitor. I've read a rumor that with the new firmware the FreeSync range is 48-144Hz and that it doesn't flicker anymore, but I can't find any official info. Samsung still doesn't communicate the FreeSync range of that monitor and they have also not released changelogs with their new firmwares.
I don't have tested this by myself, but a lot of other users have reported me that it was fixed
The Samsung has more INTENSE colors but overall, due to its viewing angles you will observe color shift on all VA panels so that the overall impression still should be better on IPS on BRIGHTER image content whereas the Samsung wins in darker image content and horror/ Sci-Fi titles etc, due to its contrast.More vibrant colors - I previously used an IPS panel and the colors on the PB328Q are lacking compared to that one
The curve of the Samsung is not that bad and it helps with color shift on the VA panel. (viewing angles) as you have mentionedCurve, mainly to reduce the iris effect (or what it's called) - I'm talking about the VA issue where the really bad viewing angles cause blacks to turn grey around the edges of the screen
Hmm, hard to tell if the Samsung or the Asus is MUCH better. They are both VA so they have smearing which is most visible in darker image content such as a dark object behind a darker background. In whites the Samsung and Asus should not have any problems, especially because of 144HzPixel response time - especially at dark to light chages. With the PB328Q when I'm on a website with dark background and bright letters, whenever I scroll it is smearing a lot. Letters turn gray and blurry while moving, it is very visible and annoying.
If you want 32", then only VA currently offers high refresh rate panels, that is right. Personally, I think that I would prefer the Samsung, even without testing the Asus
