Just finished installing High Sierra with latest nvidia web driver. Everything else work great just this one problem.
When I chose CF791 as display profile blue will be shown as purple. Even google logo is in purple. This is standard monitor profile.
No problem at all on windows 10 with standard cf791 profile.
Do other cf791 users have the same problem on high sierra? Any fix?
The minitor is through display port of gtx 970.
I tried the hdmi of gtx 970, I even tried the onboard display both hdmi and dp. No luck.
If you use this monitor and experience different result please share.
I attatch the screen of windows and high sierra to show the difference of the same profile.

Hey I have the same monitor.

The solution was to change the Display Profile of the display in System Preferences > Displays > Color

I found the best colour profile to be sRGB (sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

Now everything looks immaculate and stunning.

Hope that helps.

Disabled "True Tone" from display settings fixed the pink tint with my Samsung CF791 connected with DisplayPort. Seems the setting affects also the external display if the lid is open.

Also sRGB profile needs to be used to fix the blue colours.
