Hello every body!

I am back to the forums after a long time!

There is one thing which is puzzling me. All professional grade monitors - IPS Panel, Wide Gamut , etc. are all set to 2.2 by default.(may be not on a MAC).

But in my Nvidia Control Panel - in Adjust Desktop Color Settings - the default Gamma is 1.0

Even in the Intel Graphics Options, in the color control, the Gamma is set to 1.0 as default.

But my ASUS IPS Panel monitor has a default setting of 2.2

I am a bit confused as to why there are differences in Gamma - in the monitor - and the graphics engine color controls.

Thanks in advance
