HDR would probably help a lot.

I wouldn't know since I'm too poor to even dream of ever affording an OLED TV but I have no color banding issues on my $400 55" TCL. Where are you experiencing the issue? In videos? Games? Everywhere?

Low contrast or high bit depth.
imo, blame the "X is more Y than the human eye can see" idiots.

Also, some games use too low bit depth for shaders, causing banding where there shouldn't be.

Color Banding is everywhere but most noticeable on specific circumstances or objects.
Its mostly on lower quality videos though... But never had this issue before on my other lower quality tv. * I am quite positive it has to do with HDMI having s***ty bandwidth.

When are we getting HDMI2?
(Not hdmi 2.0)

Such as the dying light sky has huge color banding (clouds are fine , its the sunset/sky that causes the sky banding.

Have the issue on my pg248q too, but im kinda okay with it now. Ive convinced myself its not purely on the monitor. The banding is annoying but just kind of okay. For me the color banding is a bit better on hdmi vs displayport actually.

It could be that your display isn't actually using 8bpc, which is quite common. It could also be that the new display has a higher contrast between subtle hues of color, making you notice things you didn't before.

no , I am restricted to 8 bit with dithering, but it has nothing to do with the display, as this issue is non apparent when not connected through HDMI...

If i stream/cast to the tv via WMP this issue is also non existant.

So this is why I am sure it is not the encode of the file either.

It can only be the GPU (1080 GTX ZOTAC AMPD!) , which i doubt.

So if its not the gpu or the tv, its gotta be the HDMI limitations. (I have tried numerous hdmi cables and even a display port to hdmi cable with all the same effect...)

EDIT: its not the bit depth anyways, I have tried changing it to 8 Bit (Without dithering) Forced to 30hz, and had the exact same effect so this is why I know it has nothing to do with the color depth
