Just wondering if anyone has had any success in reducing eye strain with native 8-bit displays that don't need to dither? As far as I can determine the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q is the only native 8-bit tn display that truely doesn't dither, I've seen reports of other native 8-bit monitors that still dither.
If I understand it correctly the snowy/noisy look monitors can have is due to dithering (I don't know if others can see it, might just be me).
I've tried every a lot of eye friendly monitors looking for the solution to my monitor induced headaches - best I've found so far is the AOC N20W - its ccfl and flicker free at the highest brightness setting (which is spot on, its a very dim monitor by normal standards) but it does use temporal dithering. I'm using an nvidia gtx 660 and find it best of what I've tried for eyestrain. Like others I've found AMD GPUs a lot worse, but worryingly I've found newer nvidia gpus to be problematic (GTX 970). Also, can never tolerate anything hooked up to a DVI port - no idea why.
Because of this I'm wondering if temporal dithering is the cause of my eyestrain - though I'm open to suggestions on other avenues to explore. Of note - regardless of setup/type I've never been able to tolerate IPS panels, near instant migraine whenever I've used one.
