Resident Evil 7: Biohazard PC Performance Review

What is the difference between the sRGB and BT.709 colour spaces?

When playing Resident Evil 7 on PC players have the choice between sRGB and BT.709 colour spaces, both of which provide very different images despite the fact that both cover the same theoretical colour space.  

The difference between both colour space options is simply down to contrast, with BT.709 providing darker shadows while sRGB provides brighter dark sections but provides users with a clearer end image, with some details being easier to perceive. 

Whichever colour space you use will be down to user preference and will depend on how well your display can handle high-contrast images, with BT.709 providing a darker end image which will provide a better "horror game experience" for some users.  

Below are a few screenshots that I have taken to compare both colour spaces.

What polar opposite results you found compared to Guru3D's performance review. Something must have been out of whack with their system or drivers as the Fury X performed really poorly and erratically.

It's fantastic to see the Fury line still hold strong in these big titles. After a couple of poor performance numbers over the last four months, I'm glad to see the Fury line pick things up again and remain competitive.Quote

The big difference is that they used Max settings, which is insanely VRAM intensive and I found to cause a lot of framerate instability on even the GTX 1080.

In my testing, I opted for what I called "high" settings in the review, which provided these results. I wouldn't recommend higher as it caused a lot of issues, especially on the old NV driver.Quote

That makes sense. Sometimes I think developers include 'insane' settings just because they can, not because they need to or should.Quote

Most developers will tell you games are designed to be played on high. Very high, it extreme settings are there to be used for screen shots, and showing things off. Not for game play.Quote
