Greetings fellow AMD lovers.
I seem to be noticing that my HD7870 displays ‘black’ in a very dark purple, or dark grey hue. It is only noticeable when the game is attempting to display ‘black’, then the rest of the scene is also dark. I did not have this problem on my HD5770. I have even switched out the 7870 for the 5770 just to prove the difference, and the 5770 displays black as black (as best an LCD can anyway).
Now some may think right away, why doesn’t he just adjust the gamma? Well, I have while the 7870 is installed, and I am not able to get black, well, black. The 5770 displays blacks just fine.
Has anyone else noticed this difference with the 7XXX series? I just really want my backs to look black, without going back to my 5770.
Please understand that I LOVE my 7870, but not being able to display blacks like the 5770 is just frustrating.
Anyone have any suggestions or notice the same? I have changed all color settings in the CCC, but I still can not reproduce the black of the 5770.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
