May depend somewhat on the calibrators approach as well as some unit variation. I posted these numbers earlier from my recent 6020 calibration
I just had my 6020 recalibrated and we used wrinklefree's "OSM" mode guide to recalibrate my standard mode as well as touching up my movie mode calibration.
We ran some more tests this time and found the resulting calibration also produced a good grayscale for performance Mode allowing some minor adjustments to make that mode very usable as well as standard mode.
After full calibration:
- Movie Mode: 30FTL
- Standard Mode: 38.9 FTL
- Performance Mode: 50FTL
With all of these modes more accurate you have some flexibility.
In addition I find that after minor user adjustments (using simple patterns for brightness/contrast) Game Mode becomes very good for all material with the OSM style calibration. This will get pretty close to being a "Pure Mode". There is also a significant improvement in Optimum Mode's accuracy.
I should note also that after user setting adjustments contrast on Performance & Standard Mode is at +37 and on Movie Mode at +39.
The nice thing about the OSM calibration is that by calibrating both Movie mode and Standard mode you have more accuracy across all modes making other modes more usable for different content and environment and moods. For instance Sport mode which I have at +40 contrast, is also much more accurate after Standard Mode and although we did not measure it with this setting is visually quite a bit brighter than even Performance.
For an accuracy check, you can visually compare your other A/V modes against Movie Mode (PC:Advanced) by eyeballing both against 24hz movie sourced broadcast materials.
