Question Problem with colors since changing my GPU ?

Got wrong colors after swapping GT710 with HD 7750 in one of my PCs. The HDMI output is connected to an S-IPS monitor via HDMI-DVI cable.
The two striking differences are the much darker gamma and a lot of grayish hues on HD 7750. In standard quality videos and thumbnails colors are a mix of desaturated gray and over-saturated primaries (including C,M, but almost no Y). Higher bitrate videos look better, but the skin tones are unrealistic, the only options are dark brown, grayish-orange or gray.

The hue slider (in digital panel properties) changes them from greenish-gray to purplish-gray. Rose pink or yellowish tones do not appear. I cannot see prominent yellows at all.
Also tried GT1030 (manufactured Sep, 2021) in the same setup, the colors are a little bit different, but grayish tones are also prevailing.
Is there a way to solve this problem through color calibration? Does it make sense to update graphics card BIOS? Or is this specific to certain GPUs?

After hours of tweaking I was able to at least partially solve the problem. First, I used an HDMI-DVI adapter so that I got a DVI-DVI connection between the graphics card and the monitor (not DVI-HDMI as before). This corrected the dark gamma effect. Then I turned off all color enhancements in AMD video settings and saturation in videos became more balanced. Finally, I turned off hardware decoding in video player which changed the colors a little bit more.
