Export EDID

There are various ways to obtain an EDID file for a specific monitor. In our case, we are going to use NVIDIA Control Panel to do so.

To export a display's EDID, you first have to connect it to a GPU which is running on the machine you are working on. Open the NVIDIA Control Panel and under Workstation Select View system topology. Here, you will find a list of all the GPUs connected to your machine along with their valid Display Connectors. Choose one and click on EDID link beside it.

A new window called Manage EDID will appear. In the Export tab select the display you would like to export the EDID from and click Export EDID.

Save this file to a known location as you will need it later.
