Colors between Camera Raw and Photoshop are not consistent?

Hello everybody, 

 

I've just bought a new external wide gamut monitor, a Benq SW240, connected to my laptop with an HDMI cable, calibrated and profiled (and reprofiled too). Since then I've been experiencing an issue: basically when I see my photos in Camera Raw colors look vibrant, but when I open the images on Photoshop they turn dull and desaturated. This problem does not happen on my laptop's monitor so I guess it's related to the external monitor rather than to my photoshop settings. Is anyone willing to help me, since I got no clue at all about what the problem could be? Thanks in advance.

I wonder if this is predominantly an issue on M1 chip macs and dual displays?

It seems that Apple have 'changed' the display sensing/ display description on those Macs to show displays as "unknown", internally rather than by name.  

I was speaking to the developer of basICColor display 6 software about this today and he came across the issue, for which he has had to develop a workaround. Of course it's been reported to Apple but as their "issue with LUT type ICC profiles" has been around since OSX 10.12 and much reported, maybe a fix will not happen anytime soon.  

If anyone would like to test display 6 on their mac which is showing this issue it would be great to have feedback: https://www.colourmanagement.net/products/basiccolor/basiccolor-display-software/

 

I hope this helps
