This is a LightBoost restriction.
To fix LightBoost color, adjust Desktop Color settings in nVidia Control Panel:

nVidia Control Panel Gamma = 0.70
nVidia Control Panel Brightness = 52
nVidia Control Panel Contrast = 45
(Do not touch Digital Vibrance unless you're desparate)

This is darker but lowering gamma to 0.70 cause the colors to be far more saturated while still seeing all the colors in Lagom Contrast and Lagom Black Level, with no color clipping (which Digital Vibrance can cause). If you really prefer a brighter image at the numbers are too dark, use these nVidia Control Panel numbers instead: (Gamma=0.85, Brightness=50, Contrast=47)

For monitor Contrast, ideally set contrast to close to the white clipping point, but not too close to it (or you can color tint problems, such as a purple tint). For ASUS VG278H, set Contrast=90%, it makes LightBoost color look much better.

More information in the LightBoost FAQ:

Anything for AMD CCC settings? I noticed I was getting ghosting with Contrst at 50% if I higher this to 56% monitor settings it removes this but, then contrst seems to high.
