If you own an MSI gaming laptop with an OLED display, then this latest update will make switching between different color profiles a lot easier. Previous versions had no option to set AdobeRGB or P3 color spaces even if the panel could support them.

In our review of the MSI Raider GE67 HX, we praised the high-end gaming laptop for shipping with a 240 Hz OLED display offering full Display P3 colors. Such a display option is uncommon on gaming laptops where IPS and AdobeRGB or sRGB targets are more prevalent. The only problem, however, was that MSI's own built-in True Color software for adjusting colors didn't even have a setting for P3 colors. If you actually wanted to utilize the P3 color space, then you would have to jump through more hoops via Windows. Thankfully, the manufacturer has finally heard our pleas.

Updating True Color to the latest version as of this publishing date will add both AdobeRGB and Display P3 tabs to the software as shown by the screenshots below. This allows for easier color space adjustments for users who want to fully exploit the wide gamut of the OLED panel.

We suspect that older versions of True Color lacked the AdobeRGB and P3 settings because most displays designed for gaming would be optimized for sRGB. With high refresh OLED panels now available, MSI simply had to catch up by releasing a quick software update to make use of the deeper OLED colors.
