I have this problem of not showing true color.
Here is how the yellow looks in normal view
Here is how the yellow looks in overprint preview
I went from Windows to MacOS and on win never had this weird behaviour. Colors always looked like in Overprint preview.
It seems that Color Profiles and spaces doesn’t have any impact on it.
Thank you guys, for guesses.
And you have a CMYK or an RGB document? Did you set up this color as HEX?
Is your color management set up correctly? How exavtly is it set up?
Which version of Illustrator?
CMYK Color space
I did not setup it as HEX, I setup it as CMYK, filled the percentage in.
Here is Color settings
Version is 27.5
And when you compare it to a printed sample, which one is closer?
I can't see a difference in your screenshots.
I actually can’t compare to prints right now..
In Indesign I have same problem
In normal view, colors seems desatured
In overprint looks normal
Is it a spot color? Does it have Overprint assigned?
It is not, look at the screenshot from InDesign, it does the same. In normal view everything seems desaturated. After i hit Overprint view, everything looks normal as original images.

I found solution:
View > View using CPU
instead of "View using GPU"
Now, colors are displayed correctly.
Do you have multiple monitors? If so does it look the same on both?
Yeah it does.
Well, than I would blame it on the GPU preview like you found out. GPU is faster, but not very accurate. And Overprint Preview does not use the GPU.
And there is a thing, when I open Illustrator the Intel version from Creative Cloud, there is no problem with displaying correct colors via GPU preview.
I think there is problem with Apple Sillicion version.
I did thank you.
Good to hear that you found a workaround and posted the problem.
