    Hey I was reading that the new 13" Macbook Pro display can display 60% more of the color gamut. See That page includes a chart showing the color gamut, and a triangular portion of it that the laptop can display.

    So I started thinking, if a display can only display a portion of the color gamut, then how is it able to display a chart which includes the whole color gamut?:confused:

    that is just a representation of what it can do. it's not actually displaying the color gammut.

    You must be lucky and have a screen that can display the whole gamut. Mine cuts off at the triangle!

    Just kidding. :p
