I posted recently, still struggling to providing new info.
at work, I use a MacBook Pro - M1 Pro 14”. I can use this machine for 8 hours a day absolutely fine. I generally don’t pop it onto a monitor as I’m still struggling with monitors tbh.
When I come home and try to use my own setup, I struggle a lot to last two hours or so (I do abide by 20-20-20). It just feels like my eyes strain at the top of the eye ball, as In if I touch just below the socket ridge, onto the top of the eyeball it is very tender…
AMD RX5700XT GPU - had for two years
Monitor: BENQ Mobiuz EX2710R
The monitor is flicker free, low blue light with various certification, in theory it should just work?
I have the “blue light filter” set to its max of 20, it gives a solid orangey hue but I’m used to it.
I used a spyderX colour calibrator and found that with the blue light filter to max and brightness at 40, contrast 50, the light output is 65 cd/m2
This brightness is super low.
I can use my MacBook on significantly higher, I can use my iPhone 12 pro on around 700 nits no issue.
I’m really struggling to pinpoint the cause of this issue.
I’ve tried many monitors prior to the above, curved, non curved, VA, IPS.
I don’t know if it’s worth grabbing hold of a cheaper end Nvidia Card (1660 super for example) and just trialling it to see if it helps?
Equally; should I give the built in “adaptive brightness” a go? I don’t think it would be perfect but it won’t hurt to give it a week maybe
